Wii U had so many great games that no one played, simply because no one had a Wii U. They do deserve a second chance. I, for one, got really happy that Bayonetta 2 (aka "the best hack'n slash ever") will have the chance to reach a broader audience. Although I do wish Nintendo gave a discount on remasters for people who had the original Wii U versions... It would be a great way of thanking the fans who supported them even in one of their worst moments.

* Wii U has about 15-20 games really worth playing.

Those games will most likely find their way to Switch and should, as they are good games that I would recommend anyone trying out.

They aren't porting trash games.....these are of good quality. There is a difference.

What!? That is freaking great!!!! I really loved this game back in the day and was so pissed the Remake got changed and then eventually canceled. This is such great news that it’s the original. Will definitely get the plat for it.


Capcom's Old Game Engine Seemingly To Blame For Certain Releases Skipping Xbox

“Capcom has no pipeline for porting older MT Framework titles to Xbox's modern ERA system, which makes it more expensive to deliver the same titles than it would porting them to PlayStation 4, Switch, or PC.”

did MS just stop supporting MT framework all together? I get that its not supported for Series (same with PS5) but the PS4 and XBO supported it. So, its just odd that there is a PS4 version (which would subsequently run on PS5 via BC) but not an XBO to do the same.

Unless there was some update applied to both XBO/Series that no longer make it compatible and only existing titles are it. I'm getting it for Switch anyways so I'm good. I have the other collections on there and I like to keep things together.

Xbox one moved from XDK to GDK (same SDK used for Xbox series). PS4 didn’t change.

MT was an XDK engine. Capcom would need to port it.

But fanboys will try to convince you it’s just because capcom doesn’t want to release games on xbox despite their next big game coming to gamepass day 1…

Again....Capcom's game that's coming to Gamepass next month is not a "Big" game, one of the very reasons it's releasing on Gamepass day one. It's a new ip, an i.p. that Capcom doesn't know if it's going to sell well another reason why it's on Gamepass. Capcom's next "Big" game is Monster Hunter Wild & that's not coming to Gamepass.


Was Metroid Prime 4 Running on Switch 2?

IGN asked tech experts Digital Foundry to analyse the Metroid Prime 4 gameplay footage to get the definitive answer.

If this is the original Switch, I can only imagine how good it will look on the Switch 2. You know if the game is launching in 2025, there will be both a Switch & Switch 2 version!

They are using the same engine they used to do the MP remaster. I was kind of hoping they do 2 & 3 in the same engine before releasing 4.

Of course it is. 🙄 Nothing about that trailer screamed not possible on the Switch. They took what they learned from the Ptime Switch port and improved upon it. This is the results.

i did notice that nothing at the xbox event had a sign that said, the footage was captured from an xbox

they both mysteriously left this information out

Nothing at the PS showcase had that sign either because they didn’t have any games 😂😂

Welcoming xbox game studios to Playstation and Nintendo family, damn why xbox got no exclusives? XD XD

Its not really that amazing looking in any of scenes. Its great, and looks like a switch game with a 10 years matured engine from the last prime release. Nothing more, and that's fine.
