    It is a dick anti-consumer move. But from a business perspective it of course makes sense. They want to push customers to their current platform. What can you do? Oh, besides buying second hand physical copies that is.

    Physical copies go for like $20-25 on Ebay. Just grab one and you're set for life.

    It seems to weird to me that Nintendo wouldnt take advantage of their first party games and just port them over. It cant be that much work and they would make their money spent porting back ten fold.
    Yeah it also confuses me why they haven't ported over games like Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, 3D World, or Wind Waker and Twilight Princess HD versions yet. Maybe they are holding out for something.

        Oh yeah that's right I forgot about that. Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy, would be awesome.

          I've been watching for these. I'd REALLY like to see all 3 of them ported over, even though I don't own a Switch.

          I need more reasons to buy one yet, still not many games, IMO.

            Looking forward to them as well.

            I still enjoy the Mario Galaxy games on the Wii, and Sunshine on the GameCube, but I really don't like playing Mario 64 on the N64 with that terrible controller.

            Plus an HD version of 64 would be nice. Those early 3D polygon graphics are tough to look at even for me.

                No, it most definitely is NOT my thing.

                I only buy consoles for the big exclusives. Anything available on all the platforms I get for PC.

                        I really hope the pc version isn't also a remaster of the ps360 version.

                        And y no warhead? When you remaster a game as old as crysis you should include the expansions too.

                          They both suck IMO. I like the remaster's vibrant colors (though I do prefer some scenes in the original) and the indoor lighting is much improved (very noticeable in the huts), but the Nanosuit changes are terrible and the AI seems inferior. The main problem with the Switch version is the crashing. I'm going to assume the Switch is just under too much strain and the other versions won't crash as much, but who knows... we'll just have to wait and see. Crysis Remastered as a whole just isn't very good, though, at least compared to the original. It's nothing more than a watered down Crysis with some visual enhancements.

                            Does anyone happen to konw if you buy a game from one eshop region (CAD) and then change your account region to another (JAP), is that game considered purchased still and you can redownload the (JAP) version of that game? I cant seem to find a straight answer to this.......

                            Im guessing a game like Monster Hunter XX wont be because they're technically different games in the 2 regions even though its the same game? (online multiplayer cant be played between the two)

                            Im more curious about how it affects language support as some titles in different regions dont have all the languages available in others (some japanese versions of titles dont come with english, some english versions of that same title dont have Japanese)

                              I can't check any websites to confirm exactly since I'm at work (gaming sites blocked here) but I do know Nintendo Switch is region free. I also know of people who bought games from both Japan and America eShops. Not sure about the languages thing, I would assume its only supported if the game itself supports the default language set on your Switch. If its a completely different version of the game though not sure. Just try it out and see what happens.

                                It's a shame that Galaxy 2 isn't part of that 3d mario collection.

                                  So the Mario 35th anniversary announcements are as follows:

                                  -Mario Bros 35 (Pretty much Tetris 99 but Mariobros instead of tetris). Available until march 2021 i think.
                                  -Mario Kart Tour Live (AR + props to create tracks in your house i think)
                                  -Mario All stars available on SNES online collection.
                                  -Mario 35th anniversary collection (Mario 64, Mario Sunshine, Mario Galaxy 1) Seems to be straight up ports though, but Sunshine and Galaxy gets a resolution bump?. Limited time availability until March 2021.
                                  -Mario 3d world + Bowsers fury port to switch (dunno what bowser's fury is...might be a dlc or difficulty spike or challenge levels or something).

                                  I dunno if i'll get any of these...
                                  -I have Galaxy 1 and 2 already (still need to play 2 lol)
                                  -I have Mario All Stars on Wii
                                  -Mario 35 is NSO so i can get it already.
                                  -3dworld ive been considering for awhile, but i could get the wii-u version if theres nothing really different about it.
                                  -i guess the 35th anniversay collection i might consider soon, since its a limited release. Plus then ill get 64 and sunshine...even though i could get sunshine on wii/gamecube....

                                    We'll definitely be getting the 3D collection with Mario 64, Sunshine, and Galaxy. We've got all those games already of course, but will be great to have them portably on the Switch.

                                      I never played galaxy 2, so it would have been nice to have it included in the collection, especially considering that it is supposed to be better than galaxy 1.

                                        I was just looking through these updates.

                                        TechSpot Link

                                        I think I'm definitely going to pick up the 35th Anniversary Collection for the Switch (even though I don't have one) if it's limited run.

                                        I wish Super Mario All Stars was a physical copy, but if there are no enhancements, it doesn't bug me all that much. I have the original on SNES.

                                        I don't think I'll get the Mario 3D World port. I can't understand why they would even bother updating that. I just played it last year on Wii U and it looked perfectly fine as is. It was razor sharp and good enough at 1080P.

                                          What's a wii u?





                                          IMO, wii u ports makes perfect sense, a vast majority of the switch userbase never owned one, so it will be a brand new game for them.

                                              dont have to double dip with the switch ports if you've played the wii u versions already

                                                  And the portability is a big factor for lots of people.

                                                      Its the Nintendo tax.
                                                      Just like the CoD tax and the apple tax.

                                                      Their **** is expensive for no reason but people will pay it.

                                                        Shame that Mario 64 is just a lame ass port without any enhancements. Was hoping for much more. Seems the way to go is the native PC port with enhanced models and textures. Will get the collection for Galaxy and Sunshine.

                                                          There's one enhancement. The M on Mario's hat is now symmetrical, where it wasn't in the original

                                                              The collection is a pile of ****, 60 for litteraly a straight port. OH YEAH! :sarcasm:

                                                              I wasn't expecting much with the rumours, but at least some model/texture touch ups, jesus Nintendo are so annoying sometimes.

                                                                I'll definitely be buying it, although I wonder where Mario Galaxy 2 is? Galaxy1&2 are probably the greatest games ever made, imo.

                                                                As for no enhancements to Mario 64, I do think it would be interesting for them to do a remaster of the DS version, as that one had all kinds of extra crap in it that's kindof fun / kindof sucks, but I'd still love to get a version with proper controls.

                                                                  I wasn't expecting much with the rumours, but at least some model/texture touch ups, jesus Nintendo are so annoying sometimes.
                                                                  Apparently it is touched up a bit.
                                                                  So its not just a high res blur

                                                                  Everything is sharper with mario 64 (the others just needed a resolution bump and they'll be fine, which i think they did get.)
                                                                  I dont know if this applies to every game Nintendo does with the 3d games, but in Smash Bros Brawl, the base assets are already pretty good and sharp so they look amazing when emulated on a PC, and hardly need any other tweaks. If Nintendo had their base assets already of high quality then a res bump would likely be all thats needed.

                                                                  Oh we seem to have forgotten that they also announced a Game And watch handheld that plays Mario Bros, Lost levels and some mario themed game and watch title called Ball.

                                                                    Mafia remake for example is a COMPLETE remake graphics everything, with a much higher budget than Mario and costs 40.

                                                                      Comment


                                                                        As for the 3D collection, personally i wouldn't want any enhancements other than true 16:9 support and higher res. Don't mess with the original design. For Mario 64 I'm also hoping for good modern camera control with the right analog. I still occasionally play the N64 version and honestly the camera control (and terrible controller) is all that ever bothers me.

                                                                        All that said, i also do feel $60 is too much for this. But with Nintendo i would expect that price, and when you consider how much the original games are selling for right now it's actually a good value.

                                                                        Comment


                                                                          The new 3D collection is most certainly high res and the textures on Mario64 look a little more refined...but still very low detail (original ones were VERY muddy).

                                                                          I believe it's stupid for them to not include Galaxy 2 considering the price they want but this is Nintendo...rarely do you get good prices and rarely good sales. Wouldn't surprise me if they made Galaxy 2 DLC later.

                                                                          As for people complaining about their prices and habits of not including enough games or not upgrading the games enough...

                                                                          for price they seem to adopt the Disney model...tell people your product is high quality and worth the asking price. If you rarely have sales then people seem to be more willing to buy your stuff at a higher price. I look at the Xbox store...massive game sales all the time, this has made it so that I will almost never pay for a game at full price and often will only buy games at half of what I normally would because there's always a sale coming soon.

                                                                          As for why Nintendo doesn't put a ton of work releasing old games and doing remakes/remasters...I believe they see far more value in their current and upcoming IPs. They want to make money to be sure but think about it this way...people only have so much time in a day that they can spend on anything. If people are spending lots of time playing your old stuff then it comes to reason that they'll have less time and money for your current and upcoming stuff. Nintendo knows that it's current and upcoming IPs are where the real money is and they don't want millions of people using all their limited time and money on stuff that won't continue to make them money for years to come.

                                                                          Comment

                                                                            Yeah, it should be $40 tops. I could see $60 being worth it if all three games were remastered/enhanced, but to just package up three vanilla ports and sell them for full-price is scummy as hell. I wouldn't expect anything less from Nintendo.

                                                                            Also as you guys have already said, them not including Galaxy 2 is a crock of ****. Galaxy 2 is, at the very least, just as good as the original (it even matched its ludicrous Metacritic score of 97). I personally consider it to be the better game since it took what the first one did and threw in even more cool stuff. Hell, it even had Yoshi. How do you not include both games when they were so monumentally successful? That just blows my mind.

Nintendo obsesses over how their games control and feel so it probably took a while.
