A remaster of the prime trilogy bothers you more than tropical freeze at $60?
Tropical Freeze is at least an HD game fairly recent. The Prime Trilogy is over a decade old. Charging $60 would be a new low for Nintendo, especially when you can get the Trilogy for $20 on Wii U.

Yeah. Again. Ten dollars in 2015.
$10 on sale while regular price was $20 I think,
In any case we talking about simple port especially because Wii U had BC for Wii games already, while we here talking about HD remaster of 3 games for totally different tech/architecture.
Expecting anything else than $60 will lead to disappointment.

Errr...this will be in hd too.
Yeah, it'll be a 15 year old game rendered in HD that still looks like a 15 year old game, omits the originals best control scheme and was sold for $10 on Nintendo's last console. This will be the third time this compilation has been released. THIRD!

Tropical Freeze is the latest entry in the Donkey Kong series that released on Nintendo's last failed console.

The best controls were the wii controls, and who cares if its the third? It will be a remaster and not a port.

Tropical freeze launched on the wii u at $50, then dropped to $20. Then came out at $60 for the switch 4 years later. How is that fine, but not prime trilogy?

Woolly World was also 50, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse was 40. The system generally just had more flexible pricing for retail first party games.
Nintendo was probably trying to maximize profit during the Wii U era, so they didn't mind charging below price. Now that they're doing fine again, they can ignore the market price to maintain perceived value.

Imo it makes perfect sense for MPT to be 60$.
Its a twice released collection that didnt sell well before of games that didnt sell much in the first place, so the number of people interested in this was never gonna be big in the first place.
Much more logical to get the full 60$ from the few people who are Metroid fanboy enough to buy it, since they wont actually be price sensetive.
People who are were not going to buy it in the first place, since they had plenty of opportunity before.

I think we're going to get a Direct next week. This week with Labo and reviews doesn't make sense business wise for Nintendo. Next week though is clear IIRC. FFX/X-2 release on Tuesday. Nintendo has nothing major releasing next week and it's before Mortal Kombat releases. Actually I see Cuphead releases next week. That's kind of a big deal.

Yeah, I know it's one of Nintendo's second-tier franchises so I don't agree with the notion that a port of a port of it would be all that big of a deal.

Nintendo bringing out the big guns at E3 2019: 15 year old FPS games with HIGH DEFINITION GRAPHICS lmao.
Also, you know, probably the best Trilogy in all of gaming, for a generation of people who might not have even been born before the 1st one (arguably one of the greatest games of all time) was released. You're right that's pretty much nothing
