    There's pessimism and there's realism. As you don't seem to be able to tell the difference, would you like to maybe buy some magic beans that I happen to have available for purchase right now?

    I'm going to say there might be a chance. Just A chance. Maybe Nintendo has some sort of trick up their sleeve we have no clue about.

    Nintendo doesn't *need* a trick up their sleeve. They have the source code to all their Wii games. It would take *far* less effort for them to port the games than to try and hammer a square Wii-emulator peg into a round Switch-speked hole.

    "Switch is 2 times more powerful than wiiu" lol What? not it isnt at all.

    Wiiu is a tricore PPC 1.24 GHZ cpu
    Switch uses a Quadcore ARM 1Ghz cpu

    Wiiu has a gpu 549.9 MHZ
    Switch has a gpu speed docked of 768MHZ and portable it only uses 307.2MHz.

    Not sure where you got your info that the switch is 2 times more powerful than wiiu becuase it isnt, while docked its abit more powerful both in cpu and gpu, in portable it has a weaker gpu than wiiu even.

    Oh God we might as well go back to the 16 vs 32bit days....:lol: - Mhz is NO WAY the be-all and end-all for performance comparison, and if you think it is, then it's pointless wasting time trying to even explain it.. (Digital Foundry over on Eurogamer would be a better read up). The Switch, even in handheld mode, offers a considerable leap over the Wii U, and in docked falls somewhere in between the Wii U and Xbox One in terms of power. Good enough for 1080p remasters of Wii U games any day of the week ...not so good for emulation of the Wii (not impossible, but like has been said, better to remake/remaster) and of course no chance for Wii U itself.

    Also no, you're pessimistic. You're heavily confusing "realism" with pessimism. Oh well. It's something that a lot of cynical pessimistic a-holes do. Can't blame yo, Mr. Cynical

    Uh...since when does one game = "every decent Wii U game"? Where is Bayonetta 2 (and one)? Where is Smash? Where is Fatal Frame? Where is Tokyo Mirage Sessions? Where is Super Mario Maker? Where is Wind Waker HD? Where is Hyrule Warriors? Where is Xenoblade Chronicles X?
    ...and I didn't even mention "decent" games :P

    I wouldn't mind a Xenoblade Chronicles HD for the Switch but that's just wishful thinking since they've already ported to the 3DS.

    Guys, Switch may be able to emulate wii without problem. Afaik, most nvidia shield can run dolphin smoothly, and in terms of power, that's what Switch is. Also, Nintendo should be able to do better emulator than dolphin is, but well, the really would need to put effort in it.

    You took my post so literal and seriously. Smash and probably hyrule warriors and xenoblade is coming to the switch and your right they havent been confirmed but they probably will happen. When I said decent I mean anything decent or better. The Wii u had a small library but a pretty damn good one.

    While ports of those games are unsure, although we can always hope, it's practically guaranteed Switch will get the sequels. I see no reason to port Smash over when they can design a new one, same with Hyrule Warriors. Xenoblade Chronicles X might be a worthwhile port though I'd like to see a Xenoblade 1+2 combo.

    That's what I'm saying, it has an awesome little library. Your initial post made it seem the other way around though, as if Smash and MK8 are the only good games.

    The Switch is 2 times more powerful than the Wii U while docked, and slightly while in handheld mode. Still, Wii emulation is impossible on the Switch and Wii U even more. You need a decent computer to run Dolphin and a powerful gaming desktop to run CemU full speed. There is a build of Dolphin of PS4. That doesn't even reach 20fps. Stop hoping for nothing, TPHD was easily possible cause PowerPC, but Switch is ARM.

    You have a lot of hate in you, as well as a lot of misplaced optimism. Bizzare combination. Good luck waiting for your Wii emulator.
