    Its a marketing ploy, bring out the old big guns then introduced them to the ones that didn't sell well. Mario Color Splash will arrived soon on the switch

    I hope Mario Tennis Aces will be better than the disappointment that was Mario Tennis Ultra Smash (at least I was disappointed with it, compared to the N64 Mario Tennis).

    Simply put, some people want to play their Wii U games on the go.

    Nintendo Switch fans should stop to be hypocrites towards Wii U fans...

    No. I dont want vc ports. Its annoying too so that is why you want VC which are just old emulated ports ? Interesting. I prefer a brand new games.

    Nah. I didn't get every game for the Wii U or even the 3DS. So, if they started focusing on porting 3DS titles, I wouldn't mind either. Cough All of FE Fates on one cart Cough. Even then, not everyone else played every game.

    Didn't feel like reading all the pages, but base on the poll, people complaining about ports seems to be in the minority.

    I'm not annoyed that there are remasters. I'm annoyed that people didn't buy the Wii U and are playing these games for the first time on the Switch. The Wii U is/was a good system, and clearly it has/had a great library of games of they're being ported to the Switch.

    I will hear people talk about how much they play Mario Kart on the Switch, and I'll think to myself, "Where were you when the Wii U was drowning?"

    From my experience as someone with a ps4 but no ps3, I love how many remastered ps3 ports there are. I imagine id feel the same way with a switch if I didn't have a Wii U. And a link between worlds and botw are fantastic. Disagree if you want, but botws average critic score of 97 shows you're in the minority.

    If the Wii U were some very successful system, then the thought of remasters/ports on Switch wouldn't sit too well, but we all know the Wii U failed and not many people had one, so porting and remastering many of its good games is giving them a 2nd chance to be played by an larger audience.

    I don't think the success matters as much when it comes to ports. It didn't stop the amount of ports from ps3 to ps4, for example.

    Tbh I would love to have Wind Waker HD on the Switch. Even if Dolphin was made to run on the Switch.

    Nah I'm totally fine with it. The wiiu sold like crap and I told myself I couldn't buy a switch till I finish what I have on my wiiu... But if all the stuff i want to play ends up on the Switch... I can get one sooner

    I think the main reason there making so many ports despite complaints about them is cause
    Different Strokes Theory
