I'm sure it will. Plus with the eshop and all, it just makes it easier to add things from older systems.

Thanks for telling us that you don't own a Wii U.
Pro-Tip: Wii U has DS Virtual Console. And it's possible to play DS games on the gamepad.

I know trolling surely seems to be fun and insulting other board members seems to be fun as well for you.

On the other hand, call me when the Swotch sold 100 million of copies.
That will be only 2/3rds of what the DS sold.
And that's being pretty nice, because I mean Swotch meme says that it's portable and home console. So add Wii + DS together. That's over 250 million consoles sold. Call me when Swotch reached 200 millions.
Thank you. I doubt I will ever hear from you.

why would you use the DS as the point of reference? Interesting you chose that over the system in question, the 3DS.

Seems like you chose that as an argument point because you have no real argument. Why not choose 3DS + Wii U? That's a more apt choice seeing as it's replacing those two.

3DS sales by the end of its launch year (2011) wordwide was about 11 million
Switch's reportedly getting 10 by the end of this year.
It'll surpass Wii U lifetime sales by next year.

By console's end, I can easily see it surpassing 3DS' 60 or so million.

but we'll never hear back from you, because you made no real argument.

I own two Wii Us lol. Cat Mario and Pikmin 3 are some of my favorite games of all time.

I suggested a Switch 2 add a second screen. I don’t see what made you jump to this conclusion.

You don't like it but dedicated handhelds are dead after this generation. Nintendo made Switch and finally caved and made mobile games for a reason. Nintendo wouldn't be making games for a market that shrinks their own and a hybrid handheld platform if they intended to stay in the dedicated handheld market.

They have an insanely successful and long run but all good things eventually come to an end. This is another one of them.
This is GameFAQs. People here take great pride in ignoring common sense.
