If the port of Bayo 2 was to include anything, like additional story elements and more areas to explore/play, then yeah, I'd be miffed too.
Yeah, same here. The additions to Bayonetta 2 on Switch seem pretty inconsequential, which is as it should be. Completely different situation from MK8DX and Pokken DX, which basically locked entire DLC packs behind purchasing the game all over again.
I don't know why so many people want a company to actually keep its old games locked to old hardware, though. As someone who recently collected a bunch of Sega Saturn games, I can tell you for a fact that games being exclusive to old hardware is just a pain in the ass. I like that Nintendo always ports its games forward (aside from most of its Gamecube library, which I can see becoming a huge pain in the ass if Nintendo doesn't change that soon), as it makes it much cheaper for us retro collecters to collect old games while non-collectors can just play the newer versions.
Just wait for Tropical Freeze's announcement
All DK games except for 64 were ported to another console so idk why it's a bad thing
Still a bit expensive for the Switch. At least for both games. The option to buy either one, then the other is interesting.
Wii U will always have the cult following.

No original ideas? Perhaps you've never heard of ARMS and Mario Odyssey? Splatoon 2? Xenoblade Chronicles 2?
There are plenty of original ideas on the Switch.
Majority of ports boasts some sort of additional feature.
Mario Kart 8 - finally fixed battle mode, that will be $60. And a monthly fee to be allowed to play. Thank you very much.
Lego City - oh wait, gamepad support was fully scrapped obviously b/c inferior hardware
Breath of the Wild - oh wait, game was downgraded because of inferior hardware and we can't allow a superior Wii U version to exist. Even when it was designed around the Wii U gamepad. We were still too lazy to remove the in game Wii U gamepad from the game.
Bayonetta - wow, Amiibo support. Finally. I really got sick of being able to unlock content by playing well. Gotta pay $60 now on top of the $60 for a 3, 4 idk year old game. Thanks Nintendo!!! Just do the same as you did with Samus Returns. I love paying $150 for one game.
Splatoon 2 - oh wait, gamepad mechanic got removed and now I would have to pay for online too. Thanks for the downgrade.
Majority of ports
Or maybe you were talking about ports on other platforms. And you would also be wrong.
Only a tiny few are actually properly made with care. For example Final Fantasy X + X/2. Or Wind Waker on the Wii U.
Metal Gear Solid 2+3 HD misses out on tons of stuff. And they couldn't even bothered to re-add the cutscene, that was originally cut from the game.
Sly Cooper misses out on audio commentary because of who knows why
Ubisoft ports are typically bug ridden. See Prince of Persia collection and Splinter Cell collection. Splinter Cell "collection" is actually Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, and even that's a downgrade, because they of course cut the coop mode.
Switch is a great way to play ports.
Someone please make the industry crash.

I bought the Wii U for games that are exclusive until they are retro, as this was the case for every other Nintendo console, even the Virtual Boy. Not for timed exclusives that Nintendo ports to Switch just a couple of years later with extra content locked to the port because f*** everyone who bought a Wii U.
I don't care if Nintendo ports all Gamecube games to Switch because they are already retro. And Saturn games are already prehistoric. But Wii U games should have stayed Wii U only until they are retro.
Stuff like this is good. If the WiiU released HD versions of good Wii games (Xenoblade, Mario Galaxy, etc...) during its droughts they'd have been more bearable and would've helped with sales.
They're learning from their past mistakes with droughts with ports. Its a good thing for the series and gamers everywhere that didn't get a chance to play Bayo before
Too many games, not enough time
plus this game came out a couple years ago....why get made over a port of it?
PSN-jets28cm, XBLA- jets28cm, Steam- jets28cm, I own: SMS, NES, SNES, GEN, VB, SAT, PSX, N64, DC, PS2, XBOX, GC, GBC, GBA, NDS, 3ds, PS3, PS4, Fire TV, PC
Hypocritical Wii U fanboys were stoked when Bayonetta 1 got ported to the U. Now that Bayo 2 is getting a Switch port, they think ports are bad all of a sudden.
GTFOH with that lame s***.
