Hello!

I'm sure this has been discussed before but I couldn't find a thread on it. Which Wii U ports would you like to see? I understand many would prefer NEW games, but I'm guessing there will definitely be more Wii U ports.

Personally I am hoping for Super Mario 3D World.

That and Tokyo Mirage Sessions.

@Magician

I'd forgotten Pikmin 3 - that would be fantastic. Although maybe Pikmin 4 would be better?

  • NES Remix Pack
  • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Ideally, I'd like to see everything from Wii U ported so I don't need to use it again

But, my top few wishlist (in no particular order):
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Mario 3D World
Wind Waker HD (I think this would look amazing on the Switch screen)
Mario Maker (as a deluxe version with more options and not taking the place of a new 2D Mario game)
Wonderful 101
NES Remix (better suited for portable and has better offerings than NES Online, IMO)

Switch - Smash Ultimate, Mario Kart 8D, NES Online (Dr. Mario only)
3DS -
PC - The Witcher 3, Nier: Automata, Mortal Kombat XL

Most of these I’d buy again! What about a new version of Wii Sports Resort? Technically that’s a Wii port so I’ve sent my topic off topic a little...

we should have no more Wii U ports.
I bought a Switch to have new games released for it.

I do absolutely agree with this but as I said in my first post, I think ports are inevitable so I was just wondering which ones people would be happy to see.

Now that I've gotten into the Persona series, Tokyo Mirage Sessions might be more interesting than it was to me before. Still I'd have to look into it more before I'd think of getting it.

@CharlieSmile We can and have gotten both. 2019 already has a bunch of exciting games coming out.

Bring in the Xenoblade X and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE ports.

@CharlieSmile Or... you could just not buy the Wii U ports, and it accomplishes the same thing, but without depriving Switch owners who never owned a Wii U the chance to play the best games on that system. Remember, it sold so poorly that the Switch outsold it in its first year on the market. That's a LOT of Switch owners for who these are, effectively, new games.

This is non-specific, but when we get a sequel or spin-off to a series that's been running a while on other systems (Nintendo or otherwise), I always want the earlier ones ported over too. Especially when it's necessary for story. If Metroid Prime 4 is indeed a story sequel to that Trilogy, after all this time it makes sense to put them all on Switch as many people may not have played the originals. Ones like Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy, etc, aren't important for this since they're so disconnected (but still cool to have all on one system ).

That said I feel like we need to make backwards compatibility a real standard to keep from now on to reduce a lot of the needs for ports and instead have remasters that can fix problems. There's no reason not to have backwards compatibility on the next Xbox and PlayStation. Leaving it out will really hurt the offending platform extremely badly and no marketing can counteract that.

But Nintendo has the hardest time with this considering the extremely different control inputs for each of their games in different platforms. Mario Galaxy on the Nvidia Shield, for example (which it does exist officially in China), suffers due to the pointer controls being kinda bad in comparison since it's controlled with the right stick. And since Nintendo gotta Nintendo at points with some wacky controls... backwards compatibility isn't a guarantee unless they can make the old stuff/controllers work, then that's fine.

@Ralizah
honestly, nah.
"I didn't have that system, so I would like every popular game for it released on this system I have."
what kinda mentality is that?

I'm not gonna get angsty that Fable wasn't released on the PS3, for example.
I'm not gonna beg for Perfect Dark Zero on Switch, for another example.

when I miss out on console exclusives because I didn't own that console, that's a personal problem.

@CharlieSmile

I don't see the logic behind thinking that Wii U games shouldn't be ported to the Switch because you happen to only want new games.

A) Ports don't preclude or replace new games overall.
B) A lot of people didn't own a Wii U, so there's a lot of money to be made by Nintendo porting their Wii U exclusives.
C) New games aren't inherently better or more valuable than older games. And the line is fuzzy these days anyway. What's an "old" game? Are remasters of last gen games like Skyrim, Tales of Vesperia, etc. old games? Are full-blown remakes old or new games? What about recent ports from other consoles?
D) The Switch allows these games to be played in portable form. That won't be a big deal for some, but it clearly is for others.

So these ports are a win/win for everyone. People who haven't played them before or want them in portable form get what they want. Nintendo makes a ton of money from relatively little development work. There's literally no downside to these Wii U ports.

If a person doesn't want them, as I said, they can just not buy them, and that effectively accomplishes the same thing as the game never releasing in the first place.

There's no reason not to port as many games to the Switch as possible if they keep selling well.

@CharlieSmile You're literally using examples of games directly owned by Microsoft going on other platforms. THAT is irrational to ask for. Not games going from one generation from another owned by the same company, especially since companies see the money of people wanting games from a previous generation onto a new generation, either to get it for the first time or double dip. That's pretty much why the later years of the PS3/360 generation and why this entire generation has been filled with remasters/remakes, yet also supplementing new games so it's not a bad thing at all.

@CharlieSmile Maybe you could build a wall around your Switch to not let Wii U games in, and get Wii U owners to pay for it?

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.
