    Because there's a limit on how many times you can make someone run from left to right through a series of obstacles.
    Also only a few million ever got to play this.

    The thing is, it's not that the games aren't fun, it's that the "New" series just was soulless from the start. They felt like games Nintendo had to make just to have a 2D Mario platformer on the system and nothing more. Yet on the same systems you can find Mario games that have so much life, despite technically being a respin of another Mario game. The lack of care in the New games is just painfully obviously when playing them, especially when you compare them to the other Mario games.

    So, in short,

    we got tricked by Nintendo to buy the Nintendo Switch because we hated the Wii U, so they're going to port over a bunch of Wii U games while also at the same time terminating rom sites so everyone will go ahead and pay for Switch Online so we can play these games?

    In other words: We're buying a portable Wii U with roms with it.

    Off-topic, I also want to friendly remind you that the Wii (U) version of Super Mario Bros is just a rom FOUND ON A ROM-WEBSITE.
    A Wii-modder extracted the rom and found out the rom used the exact same headers as roms found on the web.

    wtf

    nintendo can't even be bothered to make original games anymore it seems, and if they port NSMBU it means they cant make a new NSMB game on the switch bc they said it was only 1 nsmb per console or some crap

    why not just release the entire backlog remastered in one or select levels from each game for each world, complete with new gimmicks and changes, or something

    the latter idea means they dont have to come up with anything properly new which is what they're fond of doing lately

    NSMBDS was fine IMO it's just the others that were really soulless and forced bc NSMBDS came out when there had been no 2D mario for about 14 years

    lol yea :P good thing i didnt get a swtich

    It sounds like you don't have direct experience of how much effort is required.

    Or maybe you'd hate it more.

    A universe where apparently my post has more likes than the OP and I feel like that says a lot.

    If it means anything, I totally agree with you. All the "New" games felt very lifeless and kinda bland. None of them were memorable either. I mean, if you ranked all the Mario games, not one of the "New" ones would even make the top 10.

    For me, Super Mario World is still the benchmark for 2D Mario games, with Mario Bros 3 a close second.

    When the switch first came out I said Nintendo should have kept the dual system+handheld setup of the wiiu. Having a handheld keyboard for scribblenauts is much better than using the dials to type words. Also super mario maker without a gamepad and stylus is never going to happen.
    I wish they would come out with something allowing us to use a second switch to connect to a docked switch to imitate the wiiu setup.

    final boss battle of NSMB wii is very memorable for me, probably my favorite final boss fight on all 2d mario games imo.

    i'll never get the hate for the NSMB series, but NSMBU wasnt the most interesting of the series, if it wasnt because of the amount of content i would consider it the worst of the bunch, then again NSMB 2 exists, fuck that game.

    this is a decent game. I do like it. in fact, I've been through it enough times that I have all star coin locations memorized. however, I'm not sure if I'll buy this again. I bought dkc tropical freeze, because I absolutely love dkc but do I love this? I bought all of my games on the wii u digitally, so I was unable to sell them back once piracy was possible. I'm a bit reluctant with all these switch ports. :-/

    This is one game that doesn't need to be ported, it's very forgettable.
