    As we slowly get the (Nintendo) Wii U titles ported to the switch, let's have some fun with predicting when the rest of the library will show up.
    • Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival - I don't think this will get ported, rather we'll probably get a new entry in the series.
    • Legend of Zelda, The: The Wind Waker HD - Based on the huge success of BotW you would think they would want to keep up the hype so maybe we'll get this or TP HD for Christmas 2018.
    • Legend of Zelda, The: Twilight Princess HD - Same as above, I'm thinking one of these will show up in 2018.
    • New Super Mario Bros. U - I'm saying this OR Super Mario 3D World will show up for Christmas 2018.
    • Paper Mario: Color Splash - Another title I'm uncertain of. Maybe a late 2018 title.
    • Pikmin 3: Pikmin 4 was "very close to being done" sometime ago but it obviously went back under the knife to get move to the Switch. I can imagine getting Pikmin 3 out there close to the same time as 4 to help build up the hype.
    • Super Mario 3D World: Same theory as New Super Mario Bros. U, perhaps one Mario port this year and one next year.
    • Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE: I know this was well received but I can't see it coming over. If it did I would guess summer 2018.
    • Wii Sports Club: The Switch joy-cons work like the Wii remotes so I could see this coming over, but odds are it won't.
    • Xenoblade Chronicles X: They have said this would be a great fit on the Switch and I suspect they have already been playing around with a port. I can see this out around Christmas 2018 (to give Xenoblade Chronicles 2 time to cool off).
    • Yoshi's Woolly World: This has already been ported to the 3DS, I can't seem them porting it again.

    These games I doubt they would port as they are very specific to the Wii U GamePad:

    • Game & Wario: I don't see this getting a port as it's too much of a niche game. Maybe we'll get a new entry in the series?
    • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse: This was a great game but I think it will forever live on the Wii U.
    • Mario Party 10: I'm thinking we'll get a new Mario Party in 2019.
    • Nintendo Land: While this was fun little game, no chance of it coming to Switch...instead we got 1-2-Switch :(
    • Star Fox Zero: My gut says this will die on the Wii U because of it's lack luster reviews and sales. I feel like if they dropped the dual screen gimmick and made it a straight forward Star Fox game it would have a decent chance.
    • Super Mario Maker: I think they are done with this series so I don't think it will come to the Switch but I could be wrong.
    • Wii Party U: This is done.
    • Wonderful 101: This can be played with the joy-con but I don't see them revisiting it. Maybe we'll get a sequel to it!

    These games have already been ported:

    Bayonetta
    Bayonetta 2
    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
    Hyrule Warriors
    Mario Kart 8
    Pokken Tournament
    Splatoon
    Super Smash Bros.

    The Wii U will be complete obsolete! Personally I think it is not a problem. However I am not discarding my Wii U just yet. The Wii compatibility is nice... and I like the Wii Mote and Nunchuck.

    The day the whole Xenoblade series is playable on Switch I guess I will be giving my Wii U away. (fucking fanatic)

    This is all extremely optimistic, but I hope you're right. Especially about Smash.

    I DO NOT want a Smash 4 port. I want a new Smash game from the ground up, with a much fuller roster this time. I didn't buy (and win) Switches for them to become portable Wii U systems.

    LOL. If it is regarding Smash, I probably would like one with a stronger 1 player Story mode, something like Subspace Emissary but better. Perhaps it is an unpopular idea, but I like my 1 player story modes in fighting games, it is one of the things I liked the most in e.g. Soul Blade for the PS1.

    Hey, the more Smash titles the better. Give me Melee HD, Smash4, and a new Smash title on Switch. Especially if it means we get a game sooner.

    Skyward Sword HD would be awesome.

    But that's not a Wii U port.

    The day that happens is the day the Wii Useless was the dumbest mistake of Nintendo.
    Aside from the Virtual boy.

    I have a feeling they will end up porting most of the Wii U exclusives, the Wii U bombed enough that most of the WiiU exclusives were missed and will be fresh to many switch owner's, I guess they will probably try spread their releases out to keep them more as stopgaps to switch exclusives rather than dropping them all in quick succession

    that said I do feel they may try to just focus on sequels and stuff, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Mario maker 2 (or DX or some other way of building on the base to include a more complete experience i.e including slopes or allowing chaining of levels to make a full mini game you can share)

    Splatoon wasn't ported to the switch, it got a sequel
    Also Smash Bros most likely isn't getting a port

    Mario Kart 8 also, it is not just MK8... It is MK8 DX, it even got a couple inklings, a second item, and even battle modes..... could as well have been called MK8 2... /s

    I doubt ports of these games:
    Xenoblade X was unplayable on the wii u gamepad because of the tiny font. This won't be an easy port when they want to make everything readable in handheld mode and xenoblade is too "niche" to make the effort.
    Pikmin 3 would need major changes.
    Wii sports club will not see a port because of the handheld mode

    True, but still Xenoblade 3D exist, and that sure was a more difficult port.
    (that said, I've already bought a Nintendo Switch, couple Pro Controller, more than 10 games, etc., and I wouldn't even started buying anything if it wasn't because Xenoblade 2 was announced... and sadly it was the same with the Wii U, niche or not, it ends up collecting many additional sells to fans)
