    Though the Wii U wasn't the most successful console to exist, there were still some notable games that released on the platform, such as Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, all of which received Switch versions. And according to some insider sources, another port of a Wii U title might be headed to the Nintendo Switch once more. Publication Comic Book started the "leak", by claiming their sources, who had previously leaked the existence of Mario & Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, knew of the existence of a port of New Super Mario Bros. U. Supposedly, this hypothetical version of the game will come packed in with New Super Luigi U as well, and there would be new content included. Usually, when such claims are made, Eurogamer and Kotaku will step in, but neither have provided further information at this time. Liam Robertson, the one who made the report, has been responsible for mildly credible rumors in the past, though he's had some incorrect ones as well, and it's been confirmed that he does indeed have an insider source working at Nintendo of Europe.

    Why not just make a new Mario game that's enjoyable? New Super Mario Bro was just meh and meh. It wasn't really a bad Mario game, it was just soulless.

    Just port NSMBDS and we'll be okay. NSMBU was a disappointment through and through.

    Is it really necessary to port this when they just churn out NSMB games as it is? I mean, I was expecting a new, but overall unimpressive game in the series for Switch at the very least.

    Now I wonder if they will call it New Super Mario Bros. Switch or if there is still a chance for a original NSMB entry on the system. If that rumour is true at all of course.

    Still wonder what the deal of not porting Mario Maker is. They could port it and release alongside their Online service to... you know... provide a system that doesn't suck to catalogue maps and such.

    This is quite disgusting. I can tolerate other wii u ports, hell, i even would have loved a 3d world port, but this? Eh. Let the fucking new series die.

    Why not just create New Super Mario Bros Switch, It'd only take 5 minutes to create all the totally unique features for it. /s

    The Switch is getting only ports and Indies. Hell even Zelda BotW was a port.

    I wonder if the lack of a stylus is why we haven't seen Mario Maker get brought over yet. Or do a lot of level creators prefer button controls?

    It doesn't take a genius to know that 3D World is next after this.
