@SKTTR If someone wanted to play all those great games they could just buy a Wii U. Seriously, that's way too many games to port to the Switch, especially right away. Yes, they're all great games but that doesn't mean they have to be re-released on the Switch. The Switch should still be largely defined by it's own library and not just that taken from the Wii U. (remember the PS4 and Xbone)

I'm fine either way... Ports or no ports. Some ill Triple Dip like the P* Games.

I don't think we'll see Hyrule warriors ported, since Koei Tecmo's new priority will be Fire Emblem Warriors. Neither Kirby or Yoshi Wolly World, since there are new games in development already.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

The problem is that the PS4 and XBox One are defined by the third party games that have been released on those consoles. Games the Switch will never get.

In time Switch will be defined by the games that launch for it first - like Mario Odyssey, XC2 and Metroid Prime 4 - but ports would allow Nintendo to fill out the gaps in the release schedule at slow times and offer depth in quality. Plus, as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has shown, some games suit portability perfectly - the ability to take some games on the road fundamentally changes the experience.

I'd also point out that buying a Wii U is something that will become increasingly expensive for newcomers at the years go by. They were never cheap and I suspect that many are in the hands of core Nintendo fans who, to all intents and purposes, only sell stuff when on their death beds.

@StuTwo That's kinda my point. I'm okay with them porting the heavy hitters in order to fill in the gaps, but most people on this thread want them to port over every single quality game (no matter how niche) to the Switch. FYI those "third-party games" were for the longest time almost entirely ports. Only about a year ago did the PS4 and Xbox One finally start getting games that weren't just dual console releases (id est: Persona 5 being a PS3 game upscaled for PS4). It made those consoles game libraries seem weaker as a result even after getting original stuff. Ports are nice but they shouldn't define the console. Don't just say the "Switch will never get" third-party support. It's still brand new and with it selling like hot cakes it's unlikely third-parties will straight up ignore it. It's already gotten some support from third parties even if it's mostly games on other consoles.

By the way, Wii U price averages $250-300 . Not cheap by any stretch but I think it's worth it for all the great games it has. By that point, you might as well be arguing why anyone should bother buying a Sega Saturn or Nintendo Gamecube.

In 2018, I think they'll start line of Wii U ports called "Wii U Hits" with the Switch releases of Breath of the Wild, Sm4sh (not announced yet), Pokken, Mario Kart 8, Platnium developed games (only teased so far), and third party games being independent from the brand.

In the current generation, ports are more important than ever. Games live on through their remastered and complete editions. But in the case of Switch, it's even more important because the system transforms each and every game ported into a first-ever HD handheld version. Which is why it was such a big deal getting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

That said, there's only gonna be what, 2 ports from Nintendo all year? Mario Kart and Pokken Tournament, vs all the other new games like Zelda, Arms, Splatoon 2, Mario Kingdom Battle, Fire Emblem Warriors, Xenoblade 2, Mario Odyssey, 12 Switch (if you wanna count that), Kirby and Yoshi (which will both likely be out by the one-year mark).

That's perfectly fine. Couple ports a year from Nintendo, and by the time 2020 rolls around we could have the top 6 first party Wii U games on the system, plus if third parties bring some of their best like Bayonetta 1/2, Wonderful 101 and Rayman Legends, we could hopefully end up with the top 10 Wii U games on the Switch.

I'd certainly like to see Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3 and Xenoblade X. Just give me those 3 from a first party perspective... and I'm good.

I don't want WiiU ports honestly. Nintendo has stated they will make a port if it can become the definitive edition like Mario Kart adding battle mode and I'm happy with that. If they just move Tropical Freeze over to Switch it feels lazy and sets a bad precedent for me. If they must port games though, I want Gamecube games over WiiU. I also don't mind when they take the route where they release a new game bundled with the older game like Bayonetta 1 and 2 or Pikmin 1 and 2 did.

Other than the obvious ones (Smash Bros for example ) I'd like Sonic & Sega All Star Racing Transformed. I have it on Steam but I want to play it with my Miis!!!

So I am in absolute worry that I will get another mark for resurrecting a dead thread, since I got a steady finger-wagging for making something similar to this vein of topic.

I will cast a vote towards something easy, but not often expected from Nintendo; Fatal Frame for the Wii U.

The game got a lot of controversial decisions from Nintendo when being released on the Wii U, including a non-retail release for a relatively large game (as in scope). So I would love to see this game take a cartridge route with a small "diary" faded notebook attached inside.

I would make a few functionality to it as well, with an option of the portable mode having a motion control feature for on-the go. And with Social Media being a huge thing, I would incorporate a feature where there is themes options of how to share the ghostly visages you snap, such as ghastly writing on the photo or just share snaps like usual. I would also add a few key sections which the players would experience others "ghost" that would show them their memories of places they've beaten or enjoyed. (think similar to Dark Souls meets Miiverse 0.5).

I would also add a few new outfits from places like Xenoblade 2 and a Mario cap/mustache combo which would replace certain sound effects with Mario ones.

I want the HD real Zelda games ported from WiiU to Switch. But i know Nintendo will take their sweet time in making that happen to space Switch releases out. And also they cant let classic real Zelda games outshine the mockery that is Zelda Bad Breath of the Mild.
Ill also double dip the P* games including the much hated StarFox Zero... Also gimme Pikmin 3 and Switch versions of Super Mario Maker and SmashU. That about wraps up WiiU ports for me.

Also, Nintendo afraid of outshining a game that sold millions and got critical reviews? That would make them more money

That goes without saying.

Port everything!

Every Wii U game, every Wii game and every GameCube game!

But first get Sega to port every Dreamcast game. Starting with Chu Chu Rocket. If a game ever screamed out for an early Switch release it's that one.

Honestly, I'm perfectly fine with ports as long as they don't go bananas with them. We have two already so I'd say only a couple more. I think that Sm4sh will come, but as a mix-up of Wii U and 3DS, plus some new content so that it's practically it's own game, but they don't have to put as much work into it. I think Bayonetta 1 & 2 either separately, or as a double-pack, and rather than port over Super Mario Maker, I think they'll just make a Super Mario Maker 2. I just feel like a lot of the games people want ported will just get sequels instead.

I know I'm probably gonna get hate for this, but I actually preferred the Wii U's library to the GameCube's.
