Considering the sales of previous Donkey Kong Country games and the quality of this particular game, their sales on Wii U were simply ridiculous. I guess Nintendo knows that and considers it a "new game" and its target is people who did not have the WiiU or people who already played it but love the game too much, like me xD. For me it is a game that is worth every penny of dollar, but I respect that someone does not consider it that way because it is a port.
I guess that's the logic that Nintendo is applying to all Wii U ports.
