Hey ... Nintendo ...

Maybe try going forward with the new system instead of spitting on Wii U owners by porting over all the exclusive games with shiny new features?

wii u owners should probably evolve and buy a switch ?

what difference does it make for a wii u owners that the games are ported to the switch ? their wii u games they appreciate and like stay the same.

Is TC aware of the fact that the PS3/360 must have over 50 games that got remastered for next gen consoles? It's the trend nowadays. But since Bayo 3 is coming to the Switch the ports make sense. Bayonetta 2 should still work on your Wii U, btw.


50 games is a tiny minority of the PS3/360 library.

I could also see Super Mario 3D World coming over to the Switch. That game is the worst selling 3D Mario platformer surpassing Sunshine which only sold about like 6 million units on the GCN.

You gonna tell us what you mean by "yet another"? Or do we have to wait for someone to guess correctly?

He means the Bayonetta Switch port announcement a week back. This topic was made just hours after that announcement.

Still doesn't excuse him from assuming we all know what he's talking about.

Some of you seriously expect Nintendo to let these games just rot and die on Wii U?
Don't be stupid.
Go where the games are...

SNES
-Super Mario 1
-Super Mario 2
-Super Mario 3
-Super Mario: the Lost Levels


Silly goose.
Those are remakes, not ports.

Gamecube:
-Zelda
-Zelda 2
-Zelda Ocarina of Time
-Zelda Majora's Mask


Do you know the difference between PORTS and emulation?

Wii
-Super Mario 1
-Super Mario 2
-Super Mario 3
-Super Mario: the Lost Levels


You can't be that dumb to not see that Nintendo was lazy and literally released the SNES remake collection on the Wii. Emulated.
Which makes that neither a remake, or port, but it's an emulated game. Why not mention every single emulated game on Wii+Wii U, while you are at it?

Oh wait, it's RushedDog, nvm.

Let me fix your troll list:

SNES had the following First Party NES Ports:
Total = 0
Tetris is not a port.
Wario's Woods was developed for NES+SNES at the same time.
Dr. Mario is at worst a remake.

NES/SNES to N64 First Party Ports
Total =0
Dr. Mario 64 is a completely different game. It's not a port. At worst a remake.

NES/SNES/N64 to GameCube First Party Ports
Total = 0 (I'm too lazy to check on the Japanese ones, and I wouldn't be surprised if you were lying about those too)

NES/SNES/N64/GC to Wii First Party Ports
-Pikmin 1
-Pikmin 2
-Donkey Kong Jungle Beat
-Metroid Prime
-Metroid Prime 2
-Mario Power Tennis
-Super Mario Strikers
Total = 7
At least Pikmin1+2+MP1+2 made sense because of way superior controls. Can't speak for the rest.
Metroid Prime collection btw. included MP1+2+3. So it wasn't just some silly collection of last-gen ports, but included the latest entry as well, which is a Wii exclusive.
MP1+2 also actually used the Prime 3 engine. Calling those 2 "ports" isn't really the truth.

NES/SNES/N64/GC/Wii to Wii U First Party Ports
-Zelda Wind Waker
-Zelda Twilight Princess
Total = 2
Both with all sorts of improvements. Wind Waker being the one, that was massively improved + changed up.

Most Nintendo consoles get a lot of first party games rereleased for them.


Factually incorrect, rushed dog.
Nintendo ported quite a few from Gamecube to Wii, but that was basically it.
And for at least 4 of them I'm really happy they did, because of the way superior controls.
I'm pretty sure everyone who enjoyed Metroid Prime 3 thought to themselves: "I really want to get the previous 2 games with THOSE controls".

The 2 Zelda games on Wii U were both Gamecube games and especially Wind Waker was massively improved. New gameplay added. Stupid stuff got removed/minimized.

It was none of the current lazy last-gen porting crap that happens on all the systems.

Also, good luck switching to PlayStation.


Who said anything about switching to Sony? How about we simply stop buying all those "new" last-gen portstations and wait until the industry finally crashes and gets back to normal?

Last-gen porting is just one of the problems. The paid online scam is another problem.

That's *never* happened before until now, because it's dumb, stale, and disrespects those who supported the last console.

Yeah it has. Mario all stars for the snes? That was porting the nes's three biggest games.
