Although there will be no more Nintendo games after Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to be released on the Wii U, we will still be seeing some of those Wii U classics make their way to the Nintendo Switch. The aforementioned Breath of the Wild will be a launch title on the Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 will have a “Deluxe” version released on Switch later on.

There are talks of other Wii U games coming over to the Switch, among them Smash Bros. and others like Splatoon 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 were previously believed to be ports but were confirmed to be full-fledge sequels.  Let us know what Wii U games would you like to be ported over to the Switch and how you feld about the Wii U experience over the last 4 years.
