Well I bought my WiiU back in 2013 and played the games I wanted on it when they came out then and until I got a Switch. If they come out on the Switch again I’m not buying them again because I already played them.

Wii u can play over 10 zelda games, switch can only play 1. Wii u can play 6 mario kart games while switch has 1. Wii u can play 4 mario party’s while switch has 0. Wii u has 6 donkey kong games while switch is only going to get 1 later this spring. Wii u has 5 3d marios, switch 1, 10 2d marios, switch 1. Wii u has 9 metroids, switch currently has 0 but will get a whole 1 in the ‘near’ future. Wii u can play 11 pokemon games switch has 1 so far.

As a person who just purchased a WiiU , im asking myself the same thing.
So far VC Is keeping me from regretting my decision.

Why did you buy it when it's been obvious for a while Ninty was porting everything over?
thank you for reading my post

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


I can agree with this. Also because I don't like the Switch hardware. That is the number one reason why I don't have one, and even if I did I would not re-purchase ports of games that I already have on the Wii U for that console. The only thing that would make me buy a Switch is a lot of must play games available for it that I can't play anywhere else. So far there is only one of those, and that is Splatoon 2. Which is not enough.

I got WiiU on launch day. There are only a few first party not ported yet, Like NSMBU, NSLB, Captain Toad, Pikmin, Star Fox, NES Remix 1 and 2, and a few others. I don't regret buying it, and it makes sense to port as much as they can. These games obviously did not reach there potential due to WiiUs poor sales. You do not have to purchase them again. The WiiU can still play Wii games which the Switch can't, and it still has Wiiware which Switch wont.

There is no sense complaining about it, let other people have a chance to play and enjoy these games that they would of not of played before.
I own Tandy,2600,NES,NESv2,GB,SNES,GBC,N64,GBA,SP, NGC,DS,DSL,XL,Wii,3DS,3DSXL,WiiU,NS,SMS,SMS2,SG,SG2,GG, SCD,S32X,SS,SDC,PS1,PS2,XBox,360,XO and PC

My 1st reason for choosing a Wii U over a Switch is still intact-Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy & Super Mario 3D World as compared with just Super Mario Odyssey. 2nd reason, games like Bayonetta 2(still exclusive to Wii U as of 1/13/18, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, Yoshi's Woolly World, Pikmin 3 & others. 3rd reason-plays all Wii games.

S***, I'm happy to have my Wii U. If anything changes-no big deal, I've still got a great system.

Actually the switch version removed content. You can no longer make custom lobbies in ranked so rip anyone wanting to play 200cc ranked without having to grind out hundreds of races first
