Hello all!
First of all thank you for opening this chat.

Second this is a forum dedicated for ideas straight from our brains in hope that Nintendo’s will glance and maybe take some good ideas to the drawing board :^)

So let it all out

More original games, less Wii U ports especially ports at $60.

.... Nintendo would do nice to make GameCube games apart of virtual console games in the Eshop.

Just like they did for the WiiU making games like wario land (the was actually pretty nice I haven’t played that game in forever).

You could argue maybe that the GameCube didn’t have a lot of good games but I’d look at you silly for the most part, they could add:
Sunshine, Sonic Heros, PAPER MARIO TTYD!!!! I mean the limit is only what Nintendo wants to make it obviously but with the technology we have today I don’t see why we can’t get reamped GCN games.


And can we please have Kingdom Hearts 3 for the switch???

I’ve yet to see any news about it maybe they’ll say something at E3 but if they don’t say we can play Kingdom Hearts 3 anywhere! anytime! ...that would be disappointing


Could we get some different (payable $$ (😏)) themes for the home menu?


OSOMATSU-SAN!!!
THE VIDEO GAME!


Invent a small plug-in battery pack that’s somewhat flimsy. Think of a deflated red kickball, but it’s not a kickball, it’s a battery pack except make it smaller than you’d imagine a regular size delated ball would appear like. Heck make it stylish w/ different styles.

The idea here is to have extra life that isn’t bulky covering the back of the switch.

Am I right in thinking that the GameCube is difficult to emulate, that being the reason GameCube games never appeared on the Wii U eShop? Would be nice for Nintendo to make some breakthrough on that front.

@Don More original games; yes. Less Wii U ports; why? Like, absolutely why? Why do people take this position? What is the negative effect of Wii U ports that we're trying to stamp out? What happens in a world with less Wii U ports? Do original games magically appear to take their place? Does porting an already complete game from the Wii U really require such a significant investment of time and resources that it puts new games in jeopardy? Was the Virtual Console - and the hundreds upon hundreds of ports it brought - responsible for starving the DS, Wii, Wii U and 3DS of original titles? Is the blank space left by the absense of Wii U ports really preferable to... anything?

If anyone can explain how this isn't an entirely nonsensical position, I'd be grateful. There's a definite lull in exciting new games on the Switch at the moment, and this is a valid concern; probably the most valid concern you can currently have about the console. But removing Wii U ports isn't going to make original Switch games suddenly appear.

If you want things, say you want things. But the whole "I want to not have things" line of reasoning doesn't wash when the things you don't want shouldn't be causing any obstruction to the things you do.

Of course, this all rests on the assumption that porting Wii U games over has a negligible effect on the development of new titles, due to the games themselves being essentially finished. If it turns out that porting Wii U games is super resource-intensive for some reason, then my argument completely crumbles. I've yet to see anything which suggests that, but am always happy to be proved wrong.

Until evidence arises though, I think "Wii U ports do not make the world a worse place" is a fairly safe position. But please Nintendo (or third parties or anyone), give us some more original titles too.

The main thing for me would be virtual console. Give me portable versions of 4 generations of Nintendo games and I'll never put the thing down.

id love to see an upgrade, larger screen, 4K, HDR.

Why choose from a range of great characters like Wario, Waluigi or Baby Luigi, when you have all green jelly Luigi and Toadette. Why have regular Toad and Toadette or another character when you can have a blue or yellow dressed Toad? 😵

@antster1983 The Wii U can run GameCube games natively. There's no reason to emulate them on the Wii U. The system is technically backwards compatible with the GameCube, the only issue is that it cannot read the small proprietary GameCube discs, but if you feed it the code, via a ROM, it's certainly possible. The only reason I can think of that could've prevented digital GameCube games is the lack of analog triggers on the Wii U Gamepad and Pro Controller. But not all GameCube games used those.

Switch is different, in order to run those games on the Switch they need to be emulated (or individually ported). I'm not certain if it's capable of running GameCube games. I think it should be possible, but I'm not entirely sure. In terms of graphical power, the Switch is very close to the Wii U, and the Wii was very close to the GameCube, so the gap between GameCube and Switch is smaller than the PS1 and PS4 for example.

@Don The trouble is VERY few people owned a WiiU. So the amount of people burned by these ports that already played them on WiiU amounts to....probably the population of this forum and it's handful of Japanese equivalents. We're a tiny niche that have already played these games. For most Switch owners, it's all brand new, hit after rapid fire hit.

Meanwhile on Playstation: One of the 3 highlighted games for the Golden Week sales is the HD port of Yakuza 1. People love ports.
