This is Nintendo we're talking about, they'll release old ports like Burnout paradise and LA Noire for full price or close to it. Also all Wii U ports are $80 again.

Only thing is I would've liked to see Galaxy 2 in the set, but no doubt saving that for later.

I never got to play sunshine and galaxy (no GC or wii for me back then), so super intrigued just that like what everyone said, $79.99 uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I mean they say it did go through optimization with HD-fied so I guess I'll think about it. Also I thought there is a more polished version of 64 with better modelling on DS (while I understand porting something that was dual screen presents some challenges) that perhaps could've been ported?

If they went to that level, they'd be charging $60 a piece
Crash and Spyro trilogies were no where near $180 each. This is just a lazy cash grab and poor attempt to draw some attention away from the PS5 and Series X launch.

All three games on one cartridge I hope? Would suck if 2 out of 3 need to be downloaded.

Galaxy is $28.19 CAD and you can even redeem 350 Platinum Points for 30% off.

I don't believe Sunshine was ever made available on ANY eShop (Wii, Wii U or 3DS) but I have a hard time believing it would be >$20 if it was.

On a 32 GB cartridge they better all be there, even on the WiiU Mario 64 was only like 54 MB.

Fyi - The availability of a digital copy should limit the resale value of the physical media.
That doesn't make sense. Retail is always #1 for collectors,..... and digital doesn't change the value. Perfect example is Earthbound.

I'm more interested in the Super Mario 3D world, since I don't own a Wii U (and I can't even find one to buy at a reasonable price) and I've never played it.
The augmented reality Mario Kart looks really cool, but I doubt it's something I'd really get much use out of.

This would make me not buy... I'd pay the premium for physical but not digital

Agreed. Never played any of them and despite my complaining may end up picking this up because I never experienced them, period. Could they run better? DEFINITELY.

I'm more excited for Super Mario World 3D + Bowser's Fury...should be great co-op with the Mrs.
