Switch Has 3 Times As Many Games as Wii U Did At This Point - And They're Better

http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2018/02/06/switch-has-three-times-as-many-games-as-wii-u-did-at-this-point-and-theyre-better

In any case, the data is clear: Compared to the Wii U, and even the wildly successful Wii, all indicators are that the Switch is massively outperforming its predecessors both in terms of quality and quantity of games. And that can only be a very good thing for Nintendo and gamers alike.

 


Numbers count only games listed on Metacritics. Eshop and digital games without a review are not included. (for all platforms)

 

Much more on link.

3 times as much? That's impressive and I think it's fair to say that Switch owners don't have to worry about content anymore. I guess the real question now is why were there so few games on the Wii U?

Well from obvious reasons, Nintendo suported Wii U and 3DS in same time, Wii U wasn't dev friendly, and start selling very bad only few months after launch.

Game development splited with 3DS

First time with HD development

Poor sales to justify a better support

Wii U was made to appease AAA third parties. Switch was made to appease the market.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

And people like Josh Thomas from the youtube channel Nintendo Beyond still claim the Wii had a much better first year in terms of games than the Switch lol. Some people are so full of themselves that they can't see reality anymore.

The number of Wii games seems low

It's for this exact reason youtube has an unsubscribe button!



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Yes, it was. That's why Wii U was so messed up.

Gullible Nintendo didn't realize that AAA third parties are all talk and had no real intentions to support a Nintendo console.
