You'll get both I would assume. Switch is definitely getting a Mario Kart 9. 

Most people did not get a chance to play the Wii U version of Smash 4. 

I hope you're right, but they've never done more than one Mario Kart or more than one Smash on a system before. I wouldn't hold my breath.

I think the number of Smash fans who missed out on Smash 4 is much smaller than the number of Mario Kart fans who missed out on MK8.

MK8 and Smash 4 would be ports so this would still hold true even with a Mario Kart 9 and Smash 5 on Switch.

This is true but then again they never released a hybrid consoles until Switch so who knows.

Maybe it will be something like

2017-Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

2018-Smash Bros 4 Deluxe

2020-Mario Kart 9

2021-Smash Bros 5



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Im really disappointed if true, call me greedy but i want a new smash, new 2d mario thats not new, new Luigi mansion, new mario maker, mario strikes, pikmin, animal crossing, wii sports, 2d zelda, all before e3 haha wantgames no



Is there need for MK9 in switch, when the Wii u port sells like a brand new Mario kart game ? I don't think so!
Let Nintendo save it for switch successor.

At this point I dont think we will have two Smash Bros games on Switch. MK9 is possible because MK8D was released only few months after Switch launch so there is plenty of time for another game.

Hmmm, well even so they would still need a 'flagship' game which, outside of Smash perhaps, ports can't really fill in for. Seeing that we are still getting new games (Yoshi/Kirby, Labo), and that last year, really, we did get a good amount of ports anyways (MK8, Pokken), i don't think it'll be all that different. We still know next to nothing about this year's offerings past like May, as well.

Can't blame them for being so willing to port though, after seeing the sales it would be refusing what is really instant profit.

NSMB U+Luigi U ? Yesssssssssssss
3d world, Mario party 10, smash bros 4, super mario maker then and switch will have all wii u best/fun games with also portable gaming mode wow, hence I won't need to spend money for a used wiiu, save them for switch instead.
Nintendo port them too, I implore you!

If they are already wasting resources on the irrelevant tropical freeze, it's not a surprise to see Nintendo porting better and actually succesful games.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


I feel like there are going to be a lot of ports but at least we are getting a new Kirby and Yoshi this year. Fire Emblem too for those that enjoy that series.



I can think of other games that would have been better options for ports.

NSMBU is not one of them, they need to make it an amazing directors cut to get older gamers on board. I am sure they will get gamers who missed it though.

What about some directors cut ports of a bunch of Gamecube or Wii games? Doesn't have to be Wii U.

Skyward Sword comes to mind, and I am still waiting for a real BotW final cut. Such as adding islands in the sky or opening up the inaccessible areas, etc.

Gamecube almost had as many people as the Wii U miss out on its games. Let's get them over!
