    If someone could take the time and port Nintendo Switch games to the Wii U, that would be amazing.
    I'm freaking tired of wasting all my money just for a new console with good games.
    Does this sound like a good idea?

    Sum1 pliz port to 3DS :ha:

    Seriously though, this will never happen. You'd have (very little) more luck asking for someone to port wii u games to the switch.

    Even though backporting would be possible in some way, you would have to completely dissassemble the game to c/c++ and alter it to work on a wii u (different graphics and shit), make the models more low poly probably, scale textures and everything, it would take years to do that, aka, it's not gonna happen.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    A good idea but no, you can't.

    We are glad that we didn't bought Wii U in the first place because of no 3rd party support. Me wise! :D

    never thought some managed to do something like that, they deserve a medal lol
    EDIT: eh it still not a full port, lots of stuff missing and broken so yeah I still stand by my statement that none has back ported succefully before

    Maybe when we get a change to get the files of the Switch titles we can port the Squids and Splatoon track of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U with some Mod, because it's the same game and probably works similar, but IDK, other games like Xenoblade 2 that's just impossible.
