The Nintendo Switch has had a retail release this week, albeit one that may not set too many pulses racing - LEGO City: Undercover. We're still rattling through it for review, but it's interesting in that it's a port of a former Wii U exclusive; we should probably expect that to be a trend over the next year or two. We saw the same with PS4 and Xbox One, as gaps are filled with spruced up re-releases; some of them, to be fair, can be very tempting.
LEGO City is just the beginning - though some may argue that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a 'port' from the Wii U original. Whether direct re-releases, director's cuts or remasters to various degrees, there are a few on the way - Mario Kart 8 Deluxe arrives later this month, and we're pretty interested to see how the likes of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition stand up, though the former of those two third-party efforts naturally never came to Wii U.
Nevertheless, the Wii U ports may not be done. Some rumours from last year haven't emerged, at least not yet, and we wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo fills a few gaps with quickfire re-releases and upgrades of titles from its previous console. In light of the Wii U's modest sales numbers, too, the argument can be made that there could potentially be a new audience to appreciate these games, especially if the Switch takes off.
We've looked through the Wii U retail library and picked out games that could conceivably be ported; they're games mostly developed and/or published by Nintendo, with a couple of imposters in there for good measure. So, check 'em out below and vote for 3 games in the list that you'd like to see get another chance on Switch. As always you can hit up the comments to chat over other ports you'd like to see; are there any other third-party Wii U games you'd like to see move over to Switch, for example?
Let's get to it.
