  3. Honestly, why own a Wii U now that the Switch is getting the best ports?
I have a Wii U. Have had one since Oct 2014? Great console and all. I now own a Switch as of Nov 2017. With all these announcements of improved ports, is there any redeeming factor in owning a Wii U for what is the dwindling number of Wii U exclusive games (that haven't been announced for Switch!) ?

Super Smash Bros Wii U is a most definitely in the works for Switch. I would say Xenoblade Chronicles X is a good candidate as well.

Maybe if they have a Wii U then there's much of a reason to get a system that has 60% of games they already played

I'm only mad at the ports that add much more than just a new skin or a small optional mode.

MK8D... Pokken... looking at the both of you...

Hyrule Warriors too (though to be fair, after getting my anger out on that one, I understand they're just doing a "Game of the Year" edition like you see on Steam some times, dohoho).

Because the Switch sucks, and it's laziness to port Wii U games over to the Switch.

Maybe, but if the Switch already surpassed Wii U sales in less than a year (that the Wii U had 4 years to do), Nintendo would be smart to port their best titles just on the huge install base alone.
