    ehh...I don't think there were even any nintendo games that had dlc
    though I believe guitar hero and rock band games are some of the few examples of games with dlc on the wii

    Indeed. It's more a recent thing, and back years ago level-based platformers were everywhere. Just look at SNES/Genesis era releases... Recently is what I mean by Metroidvanias, though - stuff like Axium Verge, Hollow Knight, Dead Cells recently.
    Meanwhile, for level-based games you don't have many recent offerings, stuff like Cuphead and Freedom Planet, perhaps, along with Nintendo's own offerings.

    I'm very happy about this because this kinda makes up for the lack of WiiU backwards compatibility on the Nintendo Switch.

    Yes, and this way, you get to rebuy all the games over again! Isn't it great!?

    They seriously couldn't just make a new NSMB game? These games are already the epitome of lazy, porting one is a new low.

    I'd much rather see 3D World getting ported than this.
    Super Mario Maker I can see being announced alongside the Online Service Direct just to try to pull as many people as possible to their shitty service.

    But where Nintendo is really dropping the ball hard is by not porting Wind Waker and Twilight Princess HD to the Switch.
    But on second thought, they might do so just to pad out the dev time until a new Zelda comes out.

    Come one, Shitendo, just package Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, alongside both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask from the 3DS but all in HD for the Switch, and you'll shit money for a year guaranteed.

    No because I believe that Nintendo could've added WiiU backwards compatibility to the Switch but only in the dock. But if the ports aren't too expensive then I'm game.

    I like the fact that Nintendo is porting Wii U games on Switch. I don't have a Wii U (because it's a Wii U) but I still want to enjoy the few games it has to offer.

    But for those of us who bought the wiiu back in 2012 and the switch at launch - it continues to feel like a kick in the face for sticking with Nintendo all this time.

    Like - at least let us enjoy our games on the switch that we already bought. I bought Mario Kart 8 again on the switch and the fact that they didn't even add any new stages is just unforgivable. I know they didn't pretend to do anything but churn out a lazy port - however it's still just that.

    $120 to Nintendo between those two games and it left a sour taste in my mouth.

    i would prefer Skyward Sword hd since its the only 3d zelda that wasnt remastered yet and it could have a new control scheme too alongside the regular one.

    Hopefully this means we will also see a Super Mario Maker port too.

    With every new WiiU port the doubt about my Switch purchase keeps growing. I played all these games on the WiiU already, make new ones Nintendo! Odyssey was amazing and I still have to try the new tennis game but that's about it for new switch games.

    It's like Nintendo don't want customers from Wii-u owners.

    Despite the fact that no one is coerced into actually rebuying them, but I digress.

    There are alot of WiiU games that I missed out on purpose because I knew that they would come out on the Switch so I agree & the only that I'll miss on the WiiU is the gamepad :)

    I'd rather they do a compilation like New Super Mario Bros - All Stars. Include the 5 NSMB titles on it. That'd be worth a buy.

    I mean it's nice to get this. Although i really hope they will release another "New" mario bros game in the future. I'll still pick this up though, cause i never had a wii u
