    what is it about the switch that's made it so successful if Nintendo is porting over all its games that were unsuccessful to begin with?

    Better marketing and it's portability

    Yeah it wasn't THAT bad, seemed to be more aimed for multiplayer laffs, and was a blast playing with the missus/2 kids, but quite forgettable in single player mode... a NSMAll-Stars sounds better, bundling in the other 2, but again I wouldn't end up buying it, just like I'm not forced to buy this. Hopefully the 'delay' we're seeing in getting Mario Maker is to give us extra content ehh..:D
    Would also not mind seeing 3D World, or 3D All-Stars with Land thrown in (again though, not sure I'd buy it :lol: )

    My guess is they don’t want to cause any confusion with Odyssey, so they’ll release the 2D Wii U game this year and the 3D Wii U game next year.

    It’s definitely not a matter of IF the 3D game will come to Switch, just a matter of WHEN.

    Personally I enjoyed both the MARIO games on Wii U and will happily buy again.

    I'm pretty sure nintendo has better development tools than mario maker for making levels and drawing graphics.

    But it would be pretty brain dead of them to release mario maker first.

    games werent unsuccessfully... the wiiu only sold 13 million how does a game that sold 7 million on a 13 million install base unsuccessful?

    basicaly 50% of everyone who owned a wiiu owned this game and most of the other ports, success is measured with install base not with overall sales.

    it would be good if they did an all in one package

    snmbu+nslu + mario maker all in one it would actually fit style-wise and graphic wise imo.

    I wonder why it's mostly ports and Indie titles, serious Q.

    Well...it's not necasarilly a bad game but rather it's just the same carbon copy game as new super mario bros ds and all other iterations. It's just started to get dull having the same thing over and over again. A sequel that is very similar to its predacesor can work as seen with Super Mario Galaxy, but when you do it as many times as they have with the new super mario bros series well.....it starts to get old

    This game wasn’t that bad (unlike the DS and 3DS games, and unlike the better Wii game) bu I’d like to see a new 2D Mario game. If they’re after re-releases, I’d rather it be NSMB Wii. That one was the best. Of course, if mayyybe Nintendo could port over Mario Galaxy as well, that’d be amazing.

    I question nintendo decisions on porting certain games like captain toad and this garbage while they could have ported plenty of other far better games like mario sunshine / smg 1&2, or the 2 updated ports of zelda tp/ww. Even 3d world would have been a far better choice.

    If BoTW is a port then all the multiplatform games are ports of each other.

    And it was released on two consoles at the same time, which automatically gets rid of all the usual arguments against ports (double dipping and shit).

    This whole anti-port propaganda is getting more and more ridiculous.
