Nintendo needs to support and grow their online network. They can't do that if they release their major eShop exclusives as retail games. Nintendo is only harming themselves by telling customers, like yourself, that they don't have to care about the eShop. At most they should distribute giftcards to retailers.

It's not about one or the other... They can do both. For example, they can release these games digitally first, then some time later a physical compilation for those who want it. Or, release a limited physical release through a variety of ways (promotions, preorders, specific stores, etc).

There's always people who prefer to pay less and get a digital version, and people who prefer to get a physical one even if it means paying more. Catering to all kinds of users by giving them a choice is more important than trying to "force" people into the eShop. After all, the whole point of the eShop being there is to add convenience and alternatives to buy the products, which is what matters at the end. It's a means to an end, not an end in itself. And as flagstaad mentioned before, a physical release can create awareness for your product outside the range of digital distribution.

PS: Giftcards and other kind of digital codes don't count... >.<

What about a western release to cancel out the so called "drought"?



Currently Playing: SSB: Ultimate Splatoon 2, LoZ: Breath of the Wild, & Fortnite

Would love this for other territories. I haven't played the games yet, and I always prefer physical copies.

Plus that box art is like my childhood condensed into 35 square inches

That will not cancel the drought.

What is exactly the drought then? I though it was a lack of physical games for a period of time. By the way this "drought" seems to apply only to Western markets, as Japan has NES Remix 1+2, Just Dance and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, all almost exclusive for the console between Donkey Kong Country and Mario Kart 8.

Yeah the "game drought" in the west that will hit after Donkey Kong. There have been hundreds of "Wii U drought" threads all over VGChartz forums.

I don't get Nintendo's DLC philosophy. Why waste time and money to create and distribute physical copies? They only do this for Wii U, too. Nintendo doesn't pull nonsense like this by bundling Pushmo and Crashmo into physical copies...

The 3DS-game Freakyforms was pulled from the eShop and replaced with Freakyforms Deluxe that is also sold via retail:

3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

If they keep doing it then it must be working for them, also this is kinda similar to Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection which sold over 3m physical copies.

Except that Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection was 49 full games.  Not challenges that take place on parts of each game.

I haven't played them, but NES Remix just seems like robbery.  With Retro Game Challenge, even though you did a bunch of challenges on each game, you unlocked the full game.  Nintendo's NES Remix are small challenges in hopes that Nintendo will sucker a player into buying their extremely overpriced virtual console games.
