    Touchscreen support for the menus in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I remember as launch many people were in aw when they say the first video of a game that used the Switch's touchscreen (I was one of them) which was not implemented into Breath of the Wild.

    Since this is my second Switch game I cannot comment of any other games that use the Switch's touchscreen functionality but I can confirm Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has touchscreen support for the in game menus!

    It's likely it was just never taken out of the game during the porting process. Wait, did the original even have touchscreen support?

    Human Resource Machine is a touch screen only game I think. No controller support to my knowledge. At least I couldn't get them to work with 2 minutes of trying. It wasn't until I removed the switch from the dock that I could actually play the game.

    Voez is touchscreen-exclusive as well.
    It makes sense to support the touchscreen for menu use, it's a bit easier than a controller. Games should avoid requiring it when possible though.

    It only supports single joycon play. You use it like the wiimotes. Also the Wiiu version of BOTW "has" touch screen support but it is only used to switch between gamepad and tv mode.

    They definitely would've had to made some changes in order for it to work with Switch's touchscreen.
