    Since the 3D collection releases, will prices drop (GameCube version)?

    Most likely not. It's still a GameCube must have.

    Considering that SM3D AL is limited edition and that a considerable amount of switch-owners are buying the digital version of the game (which can hardly be transferred/sold to a new user), physical copies of a 2002 GC game should still hold most - if not all - of its value.

    If it was crazy overpriced (first checked amazon just to see and got a shock, though it was the collector new in box type deals so eh. Ebay sold listings are high for an old game but not crazy, about in line with what I would expect for a failed console, a Nintendo one too, and less than well received at the time game from a legendary franchise) then it might come down.

    As far as coming down from £15 to £35 range to £5 or something more modest in line with many old games then I very much doubt it.

    Prices for this sort of thing is the sort of thing I follow along with and make something of a study. If the new version utterly obviates the old one then it can drop prices (at least until that becomes a rarity -- if we are sticking with gamecube go have a look at prices for skies of arcadia, originally a dreamcast exclusive and one of the first quite modern 3d console RPGs, later remade and sold in limited numbers on the gamecube. Or maybe the zelda N64 ports to the gamecube. Wind Waker on the other hand saw something of a drop off with the later releases). However here we have a playable but by no means great version on the Switch, that for now at least is limited edition.
    It is also reasonably popular with the glitch and speedrun communities so they will probably keep demand fairly high for the originals. Haven't checked to see what versions are popular this minute and if they change so you might be able to go a different region to what they favour (usually such things are first run Japanese or US releases owing to more bugs and higher framerates).

    It's a bit like asking if Earthbound prices will drop because it's available on the SNES Mini. In theory the prices should drop as Earthbound is also available on Wii U and 3DS but it wouldn't stop lots of people still wanting a physical copy on their shelf and prices for Mario Sunshine will still stay fairly high for a Gamecube game.

    Pal version probably won't, seeing shinehax exists and is probably the fastest softmod that exists its value should hold.
    Let's not forget collectors and real hw enthusiast's
    Nintendo always seems to have a weird nostalgia mythos with certain consoles.

    Game will only go up in price when more people play the Switch port and want a copy of the GC original.

    Is the original GC SMS that valuable?!? There's gotta be tons available.

    Pikmin 2, on the other hand, I was happy as hell to find as disc-only (not in original box, no label, no manual) for $20 a few years ago.

    It is too early to determine.
