    So i was thinking about the upcoming Switch online updates and release and i was thinking about the NES games that will be released. I was wondering if there are any people that are working on the Wii games like Wii sport resort an porting them over to the switch. would be cool to see Wii sports resort on the switch

    EDIT: i forgot a word in the title: the word is "to"

    @P0st It's not that easy, the Wii has a PPC processor, the Switch an ARM processor.
    The game would need to be altered significantly and this would be already pretty time consuming if one had the source code, but nobody except nintendo has it.
    Your post is too ambiguous so I can't really tell if you mean nintendo hires someone to do it or some hackers could do it.

    If you mean hackers it is impossible except by emulation and people should really stop making threads like this as it doesn't change anything and the information you are searching for was already written down on this forum numerous times, use the search function next time before creating a useless thread.

    why does everyone think they can just port games without the source code?

    Awnser: you can't.
