    Nintendo: the WiiU was a failure.
    Also Nintendo: porting all the good games from the WiiU to the Switch to make the Switch successful.

    Except I never said anything about likelihood, probability, reasoning, etc. I was simply responding to it being said that Mario 3D World is the only good game left from the Wii U that hasn't been ported.

    First of all, I am glad more people will have possibility to play it, because IMO it was great fun.

    That being said, I seem to be the only person who wants the first two Pikmin games with widescreen and some HD treatment on Switch. As a package.

    Oh, I thought it was only streched to fit the widescreen. But if this was in true 16:9 then even better, maybe they can release it.

    I'm considering doing the same...

    ...for my hacked Switch. I haven't played much of my actual Switch, and there's still some games I've been wanting to play, but debt, mixed in with time being devoted to other hobbies/interests, and this whole situation with COVID have put a damper on anything I plan on doing with the system.

    Here's what I'm hoping, even though, given that this is Nintendo, they probably won't ever do it: the Switch 2 or whatever system they have coming down the pipeline will be backwards compatible, and, thanks to COVID, a lot of games coming to the Switch 1 will get the BOTW treatment: released at the end of the Switch 1's life cycle, and released to launch the next system. Like, imagine, instead of just BOTW2, they also have Pikmin 4, Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, and a few others to launch the Switch 2 with.

    There's been rumblings and mentions of Nintendo working on a new system that have come out in the past few weeks; you had the Suikoden spiritual successor mentioning it, and then someone else also dropped a mention as well.

    Wow, I have never realized that adding a working widescreen to 20 year old game was so simple. Good to know bruh.

    I thought 2 was the better game. But I was not able to achieve a perfect ending (zero Pikmin deaths) on Pikmin 2. I did do that on Pikmin 1, but on Pikmin 2 I lost 5 Pikmin on the final boss, Mostly I just couldn't be bothered to keep trying anymore.

    Simple if you have the source code, yes.

    Without it? Better hope there exists a cheat code on an emulator for your aspect ratio. #UltrawideMasterRace

    After this and 3D world release, Nintendo will finally get their heads out of the wii u's ass and actually start making original games.

    There wont be a new nintendo console until at least 2023, and it will either be direct successor with some stupid gimmick like the wii u or be something completely different and abandon everything the switch built up. I also think that if any switch exclusives are cross gen its MP4.

    @ChicoPancho
    Rumors are swirling around about a Nintendo Switch 2 or Nintendo Switch Pro. If the switch had 3rd party support it wouldn't be so bad but without it the switch is ehh just porting over old PS3 and Wii U games.

    If people are into that good for them. Might as well call the switch a Wii U mini or PS3 mino lol

    I'm not a huge fan of ultrawide to be honest...
    It can be good but there's not a lot of games and stuff that support it without entering wide putin mode, it takes a lot of space, is expensive, and isn't as practical as having multiple monitors....

    32:9 can be interesting if the computer detects the screen as 2, then it would be as useful as a dual screen.

    Why the hell is that going to cost $60 when the Wii U version cost $20? (and even with all DLCs, it still costs anywhere from $40)

    I love Nintendo, but this is ridiculous, I expected a Pikmin 4 or at least the complete trilogy at this point, not the same game from 2013 but more expensive.

    PS: They even removed it from the Wii U eShop so people don't realize they are paying more for an old game, Nintendo even looks like EA Games sometimes...
