That seems like a gross exaggeration. If I recall, the first year or so of the 8th Gen consoles was cluttered with far more ports than the Switch has been receiving. I also wouldnt particularly call XCX ancient. It came out in 2014 and a lot of people missed out on it due to not bothering to buy a Wii U. 

But Im sure you will be glad to know that Monolith Soft has just begun a new project, so you dont have to worry about not having new games to play.

When it comes to ports, anything multiple years old is pretty much ancient. And I dunno about that, even if we disregard the tsunami of ancient indies, there's MK8D, Pokken, Tropical Freeze, Skyrim, Bayo 1 + 2, Diablo 3, Dark Souls, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad, NSMBUD, LA Noire, LEGO City, Monster Hunter Generations, Rayman Legends, Street Fighter II, RE Revelations 1 + 2...

Imagine if all the resources and manpower spent on that multitude of games had  instead been invested in creating fresh new content.

To me, disliking third party ports is just odd ... that's pretty much out of Nintendo's control, and a couple of those games (like Monster Hunter, or even better Rayman) don't really have a viable alternative for them. 

Nintendo games I can at least understand, because while they eat up almost no resources, Nintendo probably does change their release schedule around them (example being that if there was no Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, we'd probably already be getting a Mario Kart 9 by next year).
