No company wan't to pay the surpluss and look like overpricing asshats. Nintendos fault for choosing cartridges and now with the hack they're in desperate need of being able to cut their prices before people start jail breaking but they can only cut on the digital side. A mid cycle refresh is needed soon, different chip, different storage options.
The 3DS had carts with up to 8GB capacity and a small rewritable sector making them more expensive than switch carts. All the while the games were 40$ or below. Yet, miraculously it worked out without companies overpricing.
This is a legacy collection. They have literally next to no development costs to cover. This joke is on no one but Capcom.
They clearly want to push people towards digital.
