No way, not acceptable. For all I care, N can price it at $100 because they think they're God's gift to gaming. But as long as I can buy it somewhere else for $20 I will be happy.


Except that's pretty acceptable, it's not like a simple port job, they have to put in actual work into it.

Though if it was 100 bucks they better have an HD collection then.

3DS games don't cost $60. $40 would be a fair price. How much did that Super Mario Allstars re release on the wii cost?

Like $30-40 bucks for the Anniversary All Stars but that didn't technically have the graphics updated from SNES to 3D.

Really Nintendo? Full Price?


Considering that they're clearly doing an actual remake instead of just giving the game a framerate boost and a HD facelift like Sony does with their re-releases, I think the price tag is justified.

Now, if it were just the GCN version of Wind Waker upscaled and in 1080p, then I'd take issue with the $60 price tag.

Also, this is Amazon we're talking about. They tend to jump the gun a bit with pre-order listings and use placeholder numbers. Remember when they had NSMBU listed as being $100 prior to the Wii U launch? That number may not even be the final price.


It's just a graphical update and some gameplay tuning.
Look, they are even using the same old textures.

It's not worth $60.

I've been paying $65 for years. No big deal.

This.

Just the same with all the HD releases for the PS3.

It's objectively non-issue outside of trolls.

Let me explain as I know many are having stupid thoughts, people will buy it regardless (as was the case for the HD cash ins found on the other systems) which means copies new and used will most likely sell for a lower cost.

Patience kiddos, learn it otherwise keep crying like the TC and the TC's spawn.
