IGN reveals their top ten Wii U games (no Switch ports)

The team at IGN have tasked themselves with listing their favourite games from Nintendo’s previous console, the Wii U. The team decided not to include any Wii U games which have subsequently been ported to the current system, the Nintendo Switch, and they also decided not to include any original Wii games or Virtual Consoles game. So basically the criteria is only games made for the Wii U. You can view their top ten Wii U games in order down below.

“The Wii U probably won’t feature among the pantheon of Nintendo’s revered consoles, but this weird, middle step between console and handheld still has a collection of wonderful games. While many games have been already ported to Switch, there are still at least 10 very good reasons for picking up a Wii U today, including these games that either haven’t made it to other Nintendo systems or were wonderful enough to still be worth playing now. Here is our list of the Top 10 Wii U Games. A quick note: in addition to games already ported to the Switch, we won’t be covering Wii games or Virtual Console games in this list, too, as those would be separate lists entirely. Only games made for the Wii U meet the criteria. Now let’s jump in!”

  1. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
  2. Super Mario Maker
  3. Nintendo Land
  4. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
  5. Yoshi’s Woolly World
  6. Xenoblade Chronicles X
  7. NES Remix 1+2
  8. Splatoon
  9. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
  10. Affordable Space Adventures

  1. Yoshi didnt’t get ported because they immediately worked on the sequel which came to the Switch. Yet for some stupid reason didnt start the 3rd Yoshi immediately after the 2nd one was complete when they knew they could have with the sequel being evidence. Yet just decided not to do nothing for whatever dumb reason.
    I guess we’ll have to wait 15 years for the 3rd Yoshi.

          1. Also, the FB share counter shows 118. Since I didn’t share this article, that leaves us with a minimum of 119 and maximum of 126 persons who cared about this article.
