    Probably not, Wii/Wii U on Switch will be like N64/GC on 3DS, we get some ports, and that's about it, however we have GC/Wii emulation on Android, so it's a solid possibility.

    A full re-implementation of the vWii will never happen for the Switch imo.
    The amount of work required to do something like that would not be worth it for poor performance GC/Wii games.

    (Although I'd be more than happy to eat my words if someone actually does do it.)

    WiiU was weaker than switch and had Wii and GC perfect support.

    The Wii U ran Wii/GC native, the Switch would have to emulate

    Because the WiiU had hardware parts from both the Wii and GC, which allows the games to run natively rather than having to be emulated.
    The Switch doesn't have any of that.

    Every day there's a new thread asking if "x console can be emulated on y" and the answers always the same. 1 minute of research of threads on gbatemp would you give the answer over and over lol.

    and also we're supposed to be predict the future.

    Use switch in home streaming and stop making threads, I feel like I've been answering these questions for the past 4 days in a row "can I port halo" "can I play Wii U" "can I play ps2" "can I play wii" "can I play GameCube"

    USE IN HOME STREAMING!

    They are never getting emulated on switch because switch processor is lower than processors in mobile phones these days. Switch is old tech these days we have better processors built on 7nm, even a switch mid gen refresh will not be able to do so (like in terms of emulation there is not a big difference in ps4 and ps4 pro because processor is pretty much same) unless switch 2 comes out with 7nm processor.
    PS2 and N64 can be hardly emulate on newly released android phones ie s9 ( which are way more powerful than switch ) so lets wait and see, and keep your hopes on NexGen not current Gen.

    I cant speak for everyone, but I actually want my WiiU to have a purpose I did join this site just to hack it.
    Pick up a used WiiU and start using WiiFlow my friend :)

    Don't be stupid, Switch came after Wii U. Wii U is the perfect retro console, plays GameCube and Wii flawlessly and has plenty of emulators for older consoles.

    Actually the switch barely has exclusives so far that are not available in a similar form on the wii u.

    You should learn the difference when someone is making a joke or being serious. Lighten the F up this is just a forum for video games not the end of the world. Especially when it wasn't even directed to you. I bet you're fun, at parties.

    Wrong, Switch has over 1000 games and a bunch more coming. You're missing out, but each to his or her own.
