A strange thing involving Bayonetta 1 and 2's pricing on Nintendo Switch has been spotted in Japan.
There is something similar in the US as well. If we isolate the games, Bayonetta 2 cost $50 on the Switch eShop while it is priced $30 on the Wii U eShop. Sure, thanks to the disccount mechanics of the Switch release, if you buy Bayo & Bayo 2 together you will ended up paying just $60, but if you're only interested in the second game (which is exclusive to Nintendo) then you'll have pay a lot more on the Switch than you would have on the Wii U.
also donkey kong tropical freeze is $20 nintendo select on wii u and releasing $60 on switch lol
Really? I'm not saying your wrong but has this been confirmed? $60 sounds pretty ridiculous.
It's fucking crazy for a remaster like 3 1/2 years later, and not a HUGE difference. Nintendo is the fucking king of overpricing their digital shit.
That would be ridiculous. Tropical Freeze originally launched for 49.99 on Wii U. I remember! If they charge 60 I'll be mad, thats just a slap in the face to us ex-Wii U owners who are still waiting for new content on the Switch and aren't tided over by the two re-releases that are coming.
You are getting new content. You know that right?
What's the new content, any story?
A port for the Nintendo Switch will be released on May 4, 2018. It will include single Joy-Con support, an extra hit point for all playable characters and vehicles, and Funky Kong as a playable character.
Alright, well niche stuff.. it's not revolutionizing the game like SotC, a full fking remake for $40 on a much more powerful platform. Just saying. I'd probably buy it on the Switch, but for the people re-buying it, wow.
I'm not against the game, I have played it, I like it, I like PlatinumGames, just saying the pricing is like a full game when the difference is not like like PS2 to PS3(remaster), or PS3 to PS4, X360 to XB1X(4K super sampled). It's closer to a PS4 to PS Pro type of difference(probably not even). Great for new adopters, sure, support the developers/publishers and their bank roll if you have the money, but the Wii U for 1/4 or less the price used is just as good if you're ok with not having CO-OP and some other gimmicky additions. Nintendo just angers me with their pricing, they have never once surprised me.
Agree. Anyone double dipping needs their head examined.
Preordered mine the other day! Can't wait!
Yup me too, gotta love amazon prime!
