      I tried to like it, it got 10/10s up the ass, but I just didn't think it was good. DmC is so much better imho

      Need more Wii U ports, there's no reason for any of the Wii U exclusives not to come over.

        Well, Nintendoland woulnd't work very well without separate screens, although I suppose if some of those modes required multiple switches it could work. One of the best of the Wii U only games, indy darling Affordable Space Adventures, I can't see ever making the jump due to how it's structured.

          Yeah I don't expect them to port the games that are fundamentally dual-screen, but almost all the big ones don't use it or can easily be tweaked to remove it.

            Yeah, I don't recall anything that wouldn't be easily tweaked for Wonderful 101. The original Splatoon obviously could be added at some point down the line but I think that might be superfluous given Splatoon 2 already being out. I'd really like to see Pikmin 3 come over but I would settle for Pikmin 4. SM3DW almost didn't use anything (and the stupid blow into the mic could be changed to a button press). The HD Zelda remakes could use the old inventory method, as could Xenoblade Chronicles X. Captain Toad Treasure Tracker might require undocked mode to work or reworked control schemes for the cart levels, DKC:TF already would work as is, same with Smash Bros 4 and Yoshi's Woolly World. They've got to bring Super Mario Maker 2 to the Swtich, maybe include world makers and basically fuse the release with NSMB:Switch. Star Fox Zero would actually be a better game without the dual-screen bullshit they tried to pull there, and I don't recall anything for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.

        Super Mario 3D World and New Super Mario games would be awesome. But really more then anything they need to get a good online gaming system in place.

        Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is the important one that needs to happen. A+ game

        Bayonetta 2 is straight up the best game in its genre. Ninja Gaiden from 2004 had that spot until it came out
