I think the next Nintendo Switch model should be able to play Wii U discs and 3DS cartridges. Do you agree? This way no one has to buy another Wii U for back up. It's just not like the good ol' days buying a duplicate console for super cheap anymore...especially with Nintendo now. Christ almighty, everything is even twice as expensive, because of scalpers.

I don’t see it happening. The Switch uses a different architectur compard to the U and the 3DS, and as such native backwards compatibility is not possible.
Rest in peace, beloved Wii Shop Channel.

All Nintendo has to do is make a damn accessory for the Switch that is similar to the Wii U gamepad for when the unit is docked so that I can play Splatoon 2 with a second screen map like I prefer, and they can resell Wii U games in the eshop for the Switch digitally like we all know Nintendo wants to do.

I feel they may eventually port several wii u and 3ds games to the switch. But emulating wii u I think would be out of the question for the switch until a serious hardware upgrade 4 or 5 years in the future.

The 3ds will be hard cause of a lack of two screens.

The only reason why the wii u could do ds games was because it had 2 screens.

Maybe the wii u gamepad will be made useable in the future for the switch and you'll get 3ds/ds games then but it would only be useable in docked mode.

I feel like if you want to play 3ds/ds games on the go you'll need to invest in a 3ds.

Also this topic should be on the switch board.

That sounds like a Switch U.
