The Wii U is officially dead. I’ll always remember the console for having some of my favorite games all held on a single platform, so for this ? block my answer is pretty obvious. Currently we have one confirmed Wii U remaster heading to Switch in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We have yet to know how well the game fully translates with the new characters, modes, and potential tracks, but if we’re being honest… Mario Kart 8 was already one of the best entries in the series, and thus the deluxe version on Switch is most likely fantastic as well.
Still, should the boat stop there? Instead of remaster Splatoon, we got a highly anticipated sequel in Splatoon 2, but there are some games that appeared on Wii U that could simply be brought over. There is one more Wii U game heading to Switch as well, that being Lego City Undercover, but we as of yet don’t know if that is a remaster or really a straight port. Given how fantastic that game is and how little run it got with the Wii U install base, I think it could see a nice second life on Switch either way.
However, the question still remains. Forget porting, should the Nintendo Switch see more and more Wii U games remastered for it?
