Feature: Potential Switch Port Round-Up – The Wii U Games That Haven’t Come To Switch

Back in January we asked you in a poll which games you’d most like to see return from Nintendo’s previous console generation for an encore on Switch. Since then, we’ve seen just one game from that selection make the generation jump: The Wonderful 101: Remastered.

It’s easy to believe that Switch has already picked Wii U’s carcass clean, but that isn’t the case. If you’re like us and eager for more people to get their hands on treasures from the Wii U years – or you missed out on them yourself and want to sample them on Switch – there are several juicy morsels waiting to be devoured and we’ve rounded them up for you

Below you will find the big name Wii U games that haven’t made their way to Switch along with a score based on ‘Switch Port Probability’. Some have been rumoured, others remain pipe dreams, and others are probably best left alone.

So, let’s take a look at the last Wii U games standing, and consider which ones are most likely to come to Switch.

A fun, if flawed, game on the Wii U, we wouldn’t mind seeing a streamlined Deluxe port of this. It would be a different game on Switch thanks to its use of the GamePad and controls which, for some, proved tricky to master. Still, Switch is lacking in the Star Fox department, and if there’s a first-party game on this list that could really benefit from a second pass, it’s probably this one.

Switch Port Probability: 4.9/10 – From Nintendo’s perspective, we’re not convinced the company sees sufficient appetite for another Star Fox game, and heavy hitters from the Mario and Zelda series on this list would surely be ahead of Star Fox Zero in the Switch port queue. Not impossible, certainly, but improbable.

We’d love to see this Wii U remaster come to Switch in Deluxe form, and bonus points if it arrived with an optional toggle to switch between the lovely, vibrant bloom lighting of the HD version and the ‘flatter’ but equally lovely visuals of the GameCube original. We like both, and the ability to swap between each style would be grand.

Switch Port Probability: 6/10 – Same as above, really. The more people who can access this, the better.
