Yoshi's Woolly World and Super Mario Maker was ported to the 3DS, and Sonic Lost World was ported to the PC. Super Mario 3D World, Windwaker HD, Twilight Princess HD, and other Wii U games could be possible Switch ports. Games like Super Mario Maker, Mario Tennis Wii U, and Smash Bros Wii U are basically obsolete at this point with better Switch sequels.

@rallydefault There is no moving the goalposts, the truth is roughly half the major selling games on Switch come from the past. My statement was that Nintendo (and everyone else) was relying heavily on their back catalog, then pointed to the fact that roughly 50% of their best selling games are ports or regular rehashes of annual franchises. Just look at the list of games below and tell me that the console isn't seeing a lot of ports being celebrated as something great to get by Nintendo.

@MaseSco Yeah, and I can add Resident Evil 5 and 6, Collection of Mana, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Spyro Reignited Triology, Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Dragon Quest XI, Elder Scrolls: Blades, Panzer Dragoon, Alien: Isolation, Witcher 3, Trials of Mana to that list after E3.

But, this is a trend that started with the Wii U for Nintendo. Because there were such long software droughts, the company had to sell and celebrate Virtual Console and remake releases like they were these amazing events. And don't get me wrong, I enjoy classic games. But the problem is their new console seems to heavily rely on them and it's only the second year of its life.

@Darknyht You're not wrong on either paragraph too. I do think that it started when the GameCube flunked and to cover development costs of some titles, they ported over to Wii games like Pikmin, P2, a Metroid game or two and maybe some others. Capcom naturally ported the RE games across too. So the trend was there. I'm just surprised that they released Wii VC on Wii U instead of HD'ing them.
