Hopefully we get the P* games they're teasing us. Especially W101... More would buy it and complain about the controls again...

I don't think porting a few selected Wii U games is selfish or wrong, in fact, from a business point of view is a very smart move.

I would love to get a few myself:

Wind Waker
Twilight Princess
Bayonetta 2

I'd love to see Super Mario (2D) and Donkey Kong also, but I'd rather prefer new installments instead.

Those who got those games on the Wii U feeling cheated or betrayed doesn't make any sense. You've been able to play the games for years now and there's no need whatsoever to buy them again if you don't want. Where's the betrayal in that?

@maruse This might be a bit greedy, but I'd love a Twilight Princess HD + Wind Waker HD double pack with even nicer graphics.

Given that Switch is portable, there is definitely more merit to Wii U ports than there is for other consoles. There are so many games I'd love to have a handheld version of. The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was needed, and allowed us to get a brand new IP with Arms rather than just MK9. And Pokken Tournament, well it was never one of my favorite games but I did like it. And I welcome it to the Switch portfolio.

But really, what is needed, is the following

1 Bayonetta 1/2
2 Wonderful 101
3 DKC Tropical Freeze (preferably a collection with Returns)
4 Xenoblade Chronicles X
5 Pikmin 3 (or an HD trilogy even)
6 Super Smash Bros
7 Super Mario Maker

Those 7 game releases would do it. Now, obviously it all doesn't have to come out at once. Spread it out over the next couple years, maybe do 3 in 2018 to keep the lineup packed, 2 in 2019 and 2 in 2020-beyond.

Just... as long as they all come eventually. I NEED these games on my Switch.

PS4: FFVII Remake
X1: Cyberpunk 2077

Only Smash seems like a must to me. A lot of others might be nice, but I can't think of any other “must haves“, aside from the one we have already.

The more games the merrier I say. Nothing wrong with more ports. People just wanna be mad about it.

I always felt the WiiU had more top games than any other Nintendo system.

Yeah no. It's missing a ton of major IPs and gameplay styles (Metroid, Animal Crossing, main series Kirby, sandbox Mario), and most of what it did have was fairly derivate, especially the platformers. So many generic linear platformers (NSMB, 3D World, Tropical Freeze, Woolly World, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse if you count that). Definitely leaves a lot to be desired. The Switch's lineup is everything the Wii U's should've been, we don't need much from it.

@Bolt_Strike Thank you. The Wii U was plagued with linear platformers, both 2D and 3D. Those are fine, but there needs to be more variety than that. I really hope the sandbox Mario is on every single console generation, because I've had my fill of NSMB and 2.5D Mario.

The lack of AC was also a major blow, at least for me. That's a big part of why I didn't buy a Wii U, along with the lack of a sandbox 3D Mario.

Here's what I think:

1) Smash
2) Tokyo Mirage Sessions
3) Bayo 1/2 or even a 3
4) Mario Maker
5) Xenoblade Chronicles X
6) Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
7) My VC getting transferred to Switch

So far thats all I think.

Yeah, the lack of sandbox Mario and Metroid were major factors in my decision to skip Wii U, those are usually some of the best games of the generation and usually provide a great sense of exploration. Wii U was definitely lacking in those types of experiences without them, the only games that even came close were Xenoblade Chronicles X and BotW, neither of which were quite the same and both of which came fairly late. Plus BotW was cross gen.

@KirbyTheVampire Honestly, I hope there isn't another generation. The concept of Switch is so perfect that for the future, I just want future Nintendo consoles to be more powerful Switches.

The thing with ports is that while they don't take much away from development of brand new games, it still takes away a little bit of time away from new games. When literally over half of what the previous consoles has gets ported, it becomes pretty ridiculous and makes it feel like the console doesn't offer much on its own. The Wii U and 3ds had a fair number of ports but in total it didn't overshadow the number of original games. I mean, just look at the PS4 and Xbox One, one of the biggest detractors from both consoles was that they had hardly any exclusive games and the majority of the games on them were were either ports or sightly enhanced versions of games on other consoles. Only last year did the PS4 finally start getting a decent number of exclusives. I don't want that to happen to the Switch, especially since I already own most of those games on Wii U. Smash and Mario Maker make sense, but others like TMS and Xenoblade Chronicles are really pushing it. Focus mainly on making new games and only re-release the heavy hitters when you need to fill in the gaps.

P.S. Pretty much every single one of those "linear platformers" were absolutely amazing and some of my favorite games of last gen. Super Mario 3d World is one of my favorite games ever and Wooly World and Tropical Freeze blew the likes of Banjo Kazooie and the Crash series out of the water. Those games were ANYTHING but derivative. To those saying the Wii U had a weak line-up. DON'T state your opinion like it's a fact.

I do agree with you. The reason why there hardly weren't any good games out was a reason why I chose the Wii U initially. Plus, I did say SOME ports like WW and TP HD, Smash, Mario Maker, etc.

@Snaplocket That's not blue ocean thinking I'm afraid

@GrailUK "Blue ocean thinking?"
Anyway, so far I think Nintendo has the right idea in terms of the Switch's library. Re-release the big heavy hitters (Mario Kart, Pokken, and most likely Smash) and make everything else new stuff. Remember, a ton of people thought that Nintendo had nothing original to announce at E3 just because Gamefreak had a somewhat unexciting Pokemon direct a few days earlier and look what happened.

I'd like both Bayo games, XCX and TMS. I have all those games on the Wii U, but I'd like if I could just retire it at this point, or at least leave it in my TV rack but without cables.
A portable TMS would help me towards 100% competition, since you need to beat the game two or three times to get all the achievements!

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I'm not sure about 3rd party publishers, but here are the ports that I think Nintendo will provide for the Switch:

  • Super Smash Bros for Nintendo Switch: A combination of both the Wii U and 3DS versions, with stages and features from both games squeezed into one port, along with some brand new exclusive content
  • Super Mario Maker for Nintendo Switch: Once again, a combination of both the Wii U and 3DS versions, with features from both games squeezed into one port, along with some brand new exclusive content

That's it. I personally don't see Nintendo porting anything else to the Switch. The Wii U's four big online games are Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros Wii U, Mario Maker, and Splatoon; two of these four games are represented on the Switch through MK8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2, so I think the other games will be represented on the Switch as enhanced ports by 2018.

I mostly have great things to say about Wii U's games as well.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8 were big improvements over the Wii versions in all regards for me personally.

Pikmin 3 and Smash were also great, but not as great as they could have been as they missed a couple of old beloved modes.

Twilight Princess HD and The Wind Waker HD are the definite versions of some of the best Zelda games, even though I miss the Tingleceiver in WWHD (wouldn't it be great to have it on the GamePad?)

If I should hand out my highscores, the 10/10's would go to Super Mario Maker, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Splatoon, Super Mario 3D World, and Yoshi's Woolly World + the aforementioned Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and The Wind Waker HD.

The 9/10's go to Bayonetta, Hyrule Warriors, New Super Mario Bros. U, and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse + the aforementioned DKC Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Twilight Princess HD.

Unfortunately I hadn't the chance yet to get into Bayonetta 2, Paper Mario Color Splash and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. So that's the 3 I would pick up on Switch immediately.
