Do you think Nintendo should release more remakes on the Switch?

    so far im a little unhappy with the switchs lineup on VC its mostly emulated software that can be emulated on other consoles easy enough and yes screams out for someone to hack and make it play roms in the hopefully near future

    however it does not speak well for their current lineup the latest mario and zelda games are terrific the enhanced ports however such as mariokart 8 pokken tournament and streetfighter could easily have come out on the wii U a console that did not do well with 3rd party it does not shock me that a lot of people have homebrewed their wii and wii U consoles just to get more out of them that being said the Wii homebrew is the easiest and best way iv seen of playing emulators asides from PC

    As far as i know there are only 3 consoles currently that aren't working via wii which is ps1 sega saturn and quite a few N64 games are not supported such as Goldeneye these are the only things missing to make it a brilliant emulation hub

    Nintendo might as well remake the biggest hits from the Wii U game collection, there's a lot of really good games there that most people have never even seen.

    Super Smash Bros Deluxe is a given
    Captain Toad Deluxe - with all new levels
    Even Windwaker and Twilight Princess HD could be ported, but later on as we already have BOTW for now
    Super Mario Maker Deluxe would be so much fun, especially with local sharing/multiplayer

    The Switch and Wii U are fairly close in power so it would be a moot point to completely rewrite games like SSB and mario kart from scratch, time could be better spent optimizing a port and adding new content, which was done really well in MK8D

    I like truly remade titles of old hits like the latest Metroid game but for those Deluxe / Definite / HD & also VC i say no. They was great in a past but I'm not going to buy them again, i would prefer to try something new, as there's too little time in my life for spending it on replays. Also, for older Nintendo games i've o3ds & wiiu which both are ultimate machines for a legacy gaming. If i would feel itchy for playing retro on Switch, I'll wait for homebrew emulators like RetroArch. The only interesting category for me is rivals' exclusives porting, some series would be great to (re)visit Nintendo, like Final Fantasy 7-15, Yakuza, Persona etc. Nintendo, please, give me more new titles & IPs, like XC2, Spla2n, ARMS, Super Mario Odyssey etc.

    You know there's a fan-made remake of Zelda BOTW in the style of Zelda 1?
    I hope you know, that before BOTW, they've made a remake of Zelda 1 and then build 3D model on this game.
    About other Zelda's - just forget about them...

    I think remakes should be done later in the console's life.
    if all you do is remake, then there's no reason to buy the switch. just keep your old consoles...

    Please, give me new games and new IP to enjoy !

    I'm not against it, but later please.
    new console need new games.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I didnt know that... Thanks for telling me. The fan made remake is good but I am talking about official Nintendo development make only in 3DS style or BOTW style.. Not 8 bit version so I can collect the physical version release! :) Again, I dont mind BOTW in 8 bit style from Nintendo instead of fan-made. Anyway.. Also if they decide to remake Zelda 2 style of Zelda 1 then I am going for it. I hate Zelda 2 NES version and I finished it over 20 years ago.

    That's up to you. If you think about it this way; if you had the option to make a new game or a port, and its going to take as much time to make a port of a game or make a new one either way, would you still do it?
    Now if it were an easy task and almost hands free, sure why not. But why do it if it were a difficult task

    Here's an example I can give:
    Take the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time for the 3ds, the game was released in 2011 (N64 was released around 19XX) That's something worth porting to a system, similarly with the recent Crash Bandicoot release for the PS4 (released somewhere in the 90's the latest DOOM Game found on PS4, PC (and now) Nintendo Switch.

    Mario Kart 8 was a great port, never played the game, never owned a Wii U. After about maybe like, 30 or so hours? I got bored of it, it was a great game but why re-release something already released from 2012 or so, and besides MK9 would have been good enough to have on the Nintendo Switch; Virtual console could have waited.

    Alternatively there's the other argument; the player should have variety in what they want to play (by that I mean porting every game possible, whether its on PC, PS4, WIIU, WII, GC, N64, PS1, PS2, PS3??) And yeah that's also true but I if I already played a game maybe 2-3 years ago, and maybe lets say If Infamous2 came to the Nintendo Switch and Gran Turismo (for whatever reason.) Sure I would be hyped and think that's great, but would I go out and buy said game for 59.99 when I can play it on my PS3 for 9 bucks?
    And that's great, I think every game should be on every console or PC possible exclusivity is something that is sometimes really stupid and not everyone can afford all four operating systems to game (Playstation, Nintendo system, Computer, Xbox). I'd be pretty frustrated if what I just bought only had a fraction of games that Steam has or Playstation. But the other question; if it wasn't as easy to just simply say "were porting this game here" would you do it? That's the real question you need to ask. Because I would be overwhelmed if someone told me they wanted (for whatever reason) my game on Cobalt.

    As others have stated previously, I don't mind it as long as I know there are more games in the works, something to hold me off until a new game releases. I didn't mind buying MK8D because I knew Odyssey was on the way, and wanted something to do.

    Now, every game as a port? No thanks. But that isn't the case.

    If I'm going to be honest, I skipped over the first page once I saw Retroboy. He hates literally everything about the Switch, and expects it to be as powerful as the XBONE X or the PS4 Pro and he is obviously uncultured if he thinks AAA third party makes good consoles. (CoD, Battlefield, etc)

    Anyways, yeah, I know Metroid Prime 4 and and Kirby and Yoshi are Xeno and so many others are on the way, and I can't wait!

    He's still around? I still have him on my ignore list but given the sudden bursts of defensiveness I shoulda guessed.
