I don't know if Nintendo is struggling too hard with COVID but they are becoming too greedy and lazy.
The game that made me create this topic is Skyward Sword HD.
While Ive been wanting a remake/remaster for a while now, never would I have imagined that it would be a straight port with just a resolution upgrade and an extra control option? Nintendo seemingly assumes that's enough to warrant a $60 price tag. $10.00 more than the Wii version at time of release.
When Nintendos backs were against the wall they put in real effort on the Wii U and 3DS remakes/remasters. But doesnt seem to be the case for this one
At least for the other ports/remasters/remakes they put in some decent effort or included all DLC in the package.
MK8D? All DLC plus battle mode.
NSMBU? All DLC
Pikmin 3? All DLC
Super Mario 3D World? Bowsers Fury addition as it had no DLC
Links Awakening was a full blown remake of a GameBoy game.
3D All stars seemed to not warrant the $60.00 price tag but at least that was 3 games.
Skyward Sword doesnt seem like any different of a game. I may pass and wait to get this on sale during the holidays (like Links Awakening) or try to get used. Sad fact is most people will buy this at full price and I cant blame them as they wont have any other way of playing the game.
It'll just make Nintendo feel they made the right business decision to price at $60 without any real effort.
Lastly, maybe Nintendo will prove me wrong and announce extra content for the game before release.
