Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U port begging (on Switch)

I'm gonna use this thread to port beg for Wii Fit U.

See ya



Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?

Ports never hurt a system. Ever.

What does hurt the Switch is if Nintendo doesn't continue supporting it with new games. That's it.

Yes, I want to beg that too, also Wii Sports Resort HD



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

I'll port beg all I want. I missed out. Theres money in it. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is going to sell because of it.

Pretty much this, I also don't believe that Nintendo should stop salvaging software from the WiiU which didn't sell as well as it could have for the sake of pleasing those who bought a WiiU and feel annoyed that it's good games are being made use out of, what is the harm in it if Nintendo want to get extra sales (500k copies of MK8 in the first week in the US I think) from software they've already worked on and just have to shift from one machine to the next the cost and time required to move that software forwards would be miniscule in comparison to building a game from scratch.

Just think of it like this are Nintendo really going to leave software which didn't sell to rot on the WiiU or if their customers would buy it should they not profit from the demand for it? Jez, the thing is, if Nintendo don't listen to their customers and bring them games people want from the past (virtual console GC games) then there is uproar that they're not giving the fans what they want... but if they port some games from the wiiu that is sacrilege because people should be punished for having the common sense to see that console was doomed from the get go? Sorry but no company is turning down money to make you feel better about purchasing a lemon.



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

I already own every game I wanted to play on Wii U (except Fatal Frame V, I hate digital-only releases) so I won't buy a Switch for ports of its games, but I don't mind their existence either. If there is people willing to pay $ 60 for games I've been playing for the last three years and Nintendo wants to use that to fill the gaping holes in Switch's first year's lineup, then it works for both parties involved.

That's the thing at the end of the day isn't it? If the ports come out and they don't interest you, that's grand and doesn't effect you really, just let other people buy what they want and worry about yourself.

In some ways I'm jealous that you got to play the games on the WiiU a few years ago but in another way I'm happy to have them on the Switch and have passed one generation of Nintendo machines, maybe one day I'll buy a wiiu just for completionist sake but otherwise I'm grand I think.

That would be amazing to port over, and think about it, if you put the Switch on the ground you could use the touch screen as a balance board for it, you're already half way to a functional port on the Switch!

Exactly, the only valid complaint that I can think of from a Wii U owner standpoint is if you decided to buy a Switch too soon and now feel that the only 'must have' games on the console are games that you already own and don't want to buy again, thus ending with a new console and nothing to play on it. But then again, that's ultimately your own fault.

And using my thread does what exactly? Lol. I highly doubt anyone from Nintendo is coming to vgchartz and if you think that's gonna undermine my thread or me, it's not going to.

If the Wii U was doomed from the get go they should have pulled the plug right after launch. Instead they told people they would salvage it. So yes, they should keep Wii U games on the Wii U for at least 10 years even if they lose money that way because to do otherwise would be to sh*t on their customers. It's not enough that they destroyed their reputation making a piece of sh*t like the WIi U was, they have to make it even more sh*t by porting the few redeeming games it had to another system, making it worthless. Sony GUARANTEES that any Playstation home console is a worthwhile purchase, so does Microsoft. Clearly Nintendo is no longer a reputable company, just another piece of sh*t company like Atari that does not stand for quality anymore.



As someone who owned a wii u and honestly enjoyed some of the games, I hope that they bring ports of the best over. Why? Because of the new portability. I honestly don't have the energy to keep using my wii u and I really want games like bayonetta on the go. Not on;y that but I know that it is easy for nintendo to get a 3rd party to do the port which means all the new games coming up won't be shafted. As long as Nintendo doesn't think they only have to port wii u games I'm fine, which is clearly not happening because of Arms, Spla2on Xeno 2, Odyssey, FE warriors ect. Not to mention that there are some wii u games that I don't have and I rather get on switch instead
