According to reporter & leaker Jeff Grubb & others. Twilight Princess HD & WW HD will "for sure" be shown at this next Nintendo direct in September. They also state that the heavily rumored Metroid Prime remaster probably will be shown at this direct as well.
If TP HD & WW HD end up receiving ports, those would be some of the last few Wii U games to finally get ported to Switch. The only games that I could think of that haven't received direct sequels or ports to Switch include Xenoblade Chronicles X, which surprised me that it hasn't got ported yet since it was a relatively big game that seemed to good to be trapped on the Wii U, but according to Monolith a port to Switch would be too expensive so there's a possibility it may never happen.
There's Star Fox Zero left but considering how it was poorly received sales wise & reviews wise I don't find it likely that Nintendo would care to port it, especially since Miyamoto, the one who led the project isn't really involved in developing games like that anymore so I don't think there would be anyone to push for it. Also Star Fox Zero was very gamepad centric so developing a port that was originally built with the Wii U Gamepad in mind might be too difficult for Nintendo to port it or have the willingness too, so its unlikely to receive a port. Same goes with other gamepad-centric games like Nintendo Land & Kirby & the Rainbow Curse.
Every other Wii U game at this point has either gotten ported, or received a sequel which would make a port pointless.
Before some people completely ignore this just cause it's just a "rumor", I could confirm that the leaker of this news Jeff Grubb been a very reliable leaker in the past, he exactly predicted which EA games would get ported to Switch before they were announced and leaked other stuff that turned out to be true. This is still a rumor but the person backing it has a very good track record and is a journalist for a big news website, so it's less likely he'll risk the credibility of the website to spread misinformation.
So what are your guys thoughts on this, if true are you excited? Do you guys think this rumor is true?
Tbh I was surprised these games haven't got ported yet as they were good remasters that suffered being on the Wii U, I'm happy they would finally be coming. I'm just confused about why only Prime 1 would get remastered and not the whole trilogy however since it wouldn't at all take much more time and resources to remaster the trilogy since it already was remastered for the Wii and costed only 20$ on the Wii U VC. If it was a remake of Prime 1 I'd understand but only a remaster of Prime 1 & not the other 2 games seems weird.
