When you go on Nintendo forums, and the topic of third-party releases pops up, there are countless "I buy Nintendo consoles for 1st party games only" comments. I think that developers of the retro rereleases are figuring out that many of the potential buyers of such collections have moved on to PS and MS. The Nintendo fanbase shifted, at some point in the late 90's. Those gamers who bought an SNES for Street Fighter II, Zelda, and Final Fantasy are now buying PS4's for Street Fighter V, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Final Fantasy XV. Nintendo's biggest mistake was deemphasizing the importance of third parties, because it has become a weird sort of rallying cry for their biggest devotees who honestly believe that Nintendo can carry the load by themselves. Disney Afternoon Collection, I believe, has a greater chance at selling on PS4 than it does Switch.
It is troubling, though, that so many developers are already saying "thanks but no thanks," much like they do for the Wii U, and how Nintendo fans don't even seem phased by it! I've actually had hardcore fans tell me that Nintendo is going nowhere, and that they can't fail! Totally delusional!
Speaking of which, did you know that over 300 relevant PS3/Xbox 360 games made/release during the Wii U time skipped the system despite it being more then capable of getting ports from the PS3/Xbox 360, here is the list!: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... utput=html
And if you have noticed, their are some games that skipped the Wii U that you might find surprising!
WWE 2K series (The WWF/WWE games where common place on Nintendo sense the NES, and where big on the N64!)
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions (The Wii/Nintendo DS got Geometry Wars: Galaxies back in the day WTH!)
Legend of Korra
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games(I know these games suck, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been with the Nintendo consoles sense the NES days)
Capcom Arcade Cabinet
Ultra Street Fighter 4
Frozen: Free Fall - Snowball Fight(Not even a family friendly Disney game want to be on the list, and it is not the only one mind you)
Pac-Man Museum (Another WTH game that should have been on it in the first place!)
Juju (Anotehr family friendly game that would have been ideal, but said no!)
Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (Another family friendly Disney game to skip the family friendly Nintendo Console!)
Sonic the Fighters (A family friendly Sonic game skipping the Wii U, now that is absurd!)
And not even stupid shovelware games like Duck Dynasty and Monopoly said no to Wii U, and the original Wii had buckets of shovelware games left and right, does proves a point that the Wii U was shafted compared to the Xbox360/PS3 even during the PS4/Xbox One early years!
