I must say I have always hated Nintendo pricing. Pretty much every other publisher, Microsoft, Sony, and 3rd party, will eventually drop the price of their $60 games to $20, sometimes even $10 or $5 if you catch a good deal. But Nintendo games stay at full price for years, sometimes hitting $50 or $40 on a sale, or $30 permanently if Nintendo does a Selects collection (though they have yet to do one of those for Switch afaik, the last new Selects additions were in 2016 on Wii U and 3DS I think).
I hate it, as a gamer who is on a tight budget. There are several 1st/2nd party Nintendo games I would love to buy currently, but I just can’t afford them currently, even though some of them are years old now and could be grabbed for $5-20 by now if they were games released by any other publisher. Just looked up the price on all of the Switch exclusives that interest me that I haven’t bought yet, they all range between $45 and $60 even though all of them are more than a year old now.
