Yeah this doesn't make any sense. Just hire a small team to update and get older games running on Switch. Then put them up for sale in the eShop at a discount. Finally, make sure the eShop is continued to the next generation of Nintendo systems until the end of time. Anything older than Wii should be a $5 game tops. Nintendo would make millions doing this.
It doesn't make any sense why they shut down the VC, instead of just bringing it over entirely to the Wii U, and then the Switch.
Yeah 1-5$ for nes-gc games from nintendo.
Then charge 10-15$ for the Wii-WiiU games.
Sadly Nintendo never does that sort of thing....
