Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa has revealed that the company continues to have plans to bring over more Nintendo 3DS franchises to the Nintendo Switch platform. The primary reason is that Nintendo wishes to convey the appeal of the recently released Nintendo Switch Lite. We have already had a few Nintendo 3DS franchises on the Nintendo Switch platform with Brain Training coming, but of course, we are all clamouring for a sequel to the excellent 3DS exclusive, Kid Icarus Uprising.

  1. Please give Grezzo another chance with Ever Oasis Nintendo. That game was so good and the main reason it sold so poorly was because it was overshadowed by the release of the Switch.

  2. WOO-HOO!!!

    In all seriousness, I love this approach.
    I’ve seen that they have re-released the original Yokai Watch for the Nintendo Switch and it made me think; “I wonder what other 3DS titles they plan to port to the Switch? I’d totally love Kid Icarus: Uprising, Luigi’s Mansion (1 & 2), and The Legend of Zelda OoT 3D and MM 3D (hopefully with improvements) on the Switch”.

  3. Oh god please don’t. At this rate by the end of 2020 the Switch is basically a Wii U and 3DS games dumpster with a few original titles here are and there.

    Rehashing stuff that look old gen makes the Switch look like a weak console and that can only support retro games and ports from 10 years ago.

    Nintendo should focus their efforts making an even greater line up of NEW games rather than remakes/ports.

    1. He didn’t say “we’re thinking of making 3DS ports”, he said “we want to bring 3DS franchises to the Switch”. Bringing a franchise to the Switch could still be new games. Plus 3DS games are very low poly, so any game that would be put on the Switch from the 3DS would be a remake instead of a port. Just look at the graphical leap from Dark Moon to LM3

  4. Some HD remasters would be nice. However, there are certain games I’d rather see remakes of than remasters & not just pertaining to 3DS games, either. Namely the Zelda games. Maybe Link’s Awakening is the first of several handheld Zelda games getting console remakes? I’d love to return to the DS ones & not have to deal with those cramp inducing stylus controls; same goes for Kid Icarus Uprising. Maybe even release Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, & Spirit Tracks as a set since the latter two act as sequels to Wind Waker. In fact, I’d love to see a new cutscene in Phantom Hourglass showing Link, Tetra, & the pirates landing on the land that would become New Hyrule (I still hate that name as Hyrule should stay dead in that timeline, along with Ganondorf, but whatever.) & meeting the Lokomo people.
