it seems easy that they can release all the wii-U games on SWITCH
like zelda, mario kart

so why cant they do it the other way around?
I dont see any reason they cant do a dual release for metroid

Because Nintendo wants you to get a Switch. It's that simple.

Don’t expect it. Nintendo refuses to release a game for a system they killed off.
Even a 65-million year old dinosaur can't say no to something fun as gaming.

This.

That being said, I do think they will continue to release terrible games for years to come. ICYMI, Just Dance 2018 was released on Wii this year. Not Wii U , but the original Wii.

What I can tell you is that the Wii U is "out of print", meaning that they aren't going to be manufacturing any more of the consoles, so the consoles themselves are going to become increasingly rare...

Whether out of print consoles CAN still have video games released on them is something that I've personally never looked into, but even if that's possible, the games being released will and/or would be very limited compared to Switch titles being released.

Amazon disagrees with you on Just Dance 2018 being on Wii, but not the Wii U, as does Target, and Walmart.

That being said, U will no longer be supported by Nintendo directly with first party titles, other than maybe VC, and The U in general didn't even get the Lego game they used to get so the U is pretty much done with any type of major support.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure no game in the foreseeable future will be released on the Wii-U except for VC content.

It stinks seeing an end to a console that never met its stride, but that's how the Dreamcast felt too.

...

It'd be funny if we get something like what the Dreamcast scene had post-death with continued releases from niche groups that decided they wanted to port over some wacky arcade game.

I expect many more Wii U to Switch ports. Bayonetta 1 & 2 were just announced. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the top selling Switch game, so clearly there's a strong market for these ports.

There are rumours of the next Smash Bros. game being an enhanced port of the Wii U version as well.

We all know and waiting for that, that will be the real final nail for the WiiU, but that is OK, unless Snake is back, I really don't care

The only time I would buy a switch if they increase the battery life, start losing all that bs hype just like the Wiiu had when it first came out and Nintendo fans realizing all over again for the 6th time they got no games coming out, this has been the case since the SNES starting with them cancelling StarFox 2(and already finished game)

The only rumour about Smash 4 on Switch came from Laura Kate Dale and Emily Rogers.

And I just checked Wii U's eShop and there are a few games that were released this week so yes, it's still getting indie games and shovelware like Just Dance.
