The Nintendo fan is a consumer, therefore what makes business sense is not at all a priority to them and they are totally in the right for wanting product that appeals to them. To expect us to get excited and buy everything they make is silly. Also, Nintendo is atleast less fixated on max profits than some other companys, proven by their lack of lootboxes and microtransactions... for now atleast. I wouldn't even use Labo and Ring Fit as evidence for this as I think they're clearly fishing for another massive hit like Wii Sports.
The explain why they can get away with porting the Wii U's entire library to the Switch and almost every single game can match or exceed the sales of the original Wii U version (MK8D, Tropical Freeze, Pokken DX, Captain Toad, NSMBU, etc.). Or how Link's Awakening is selling big numbers and may outsell the original despite being $60 for a remake of a Game Boy game. Especially when you look at other remasters like the Crash N Sane Trilogy and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy each going for $40 for 3 games; Or how every 1st party Nintendo game will still sell for full price even years after it came out and still have solid, steady legs.
I say this as a Nintendo fan: Nintendo fans are some of the biggest sheep in gaming.
