Finally, Hines shared an interesting note on ports, remasters, and remakes. He acknowledged fan interest in things like Fallout 3 on Switch, but indicated that these types of projects are unlikely. That’s because it takes a lot of work to get older games working on new platforms, and teams are better off (and more interested in) focusing on new games instead of working with past releases.

I understand that, but I think for hugely popular older titles, Nintendo should kick in and fund those projects. New Vegas on the Switch, for example, would make butt loads of money.  

Would it though?  It would probably sell pretty well to people that hang out in gaming forums.  But, does that average Switch owner really care about playing that game?   How about the average Fallout fan... do they want to rebuy a game they finished years ago?  Do they even own a Switch?  Certainly some of them would buy it.  But, how many, really?

Skyrim worked out, it seems.  So, I guess it is possible that an older Fallout game could work on Switch as well.  But, I'd say Skyrim is on a bit of a higher level than Fallout New Vegas, or even Fallout 3, insofar as it is a modern classic. The Fallout games are bigtime, but I don't see any of them as Skyrim level, in terms of popularity and significance in gaming culture.
