The Nintendo Switch has and continues to flaunt its prowess regarding the first-party lineup that is currently available on the near three year-old console. And while titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey shine bright for the exclusive roster of games, other commercial success projects have been derived from the preceding Wii U.

Games like Mario Kart 8 branded with the ‘Deluxe’ alias, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe are some that have already released on the newer hardware from Nintendo. Not to mention upcoming re-releases like Xenoblade Chronicles and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Nintendo is clearly cashing in on titles that did not receive the proper attention they deserved on the previous console.

Even more, it was reported recently that Nintendo still plans to bring even more Wii U titles to the Switch in the coming future. According to known Nintendo insider Emily Rogers, she discloses that Nintendo plans to release even more games to occupy the annual release calendar.

My only concern about 2020 is that Nintendo might lean a little too hard on re-releases of older stuff as a crutch to fill out their calendar. Nintendo has already officially announced Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and Xenoblade Chronicles 1 remaster/remake for this year. I can also confirm that Nintendo has (at least) two more unannounced Wii U ports. They are not difficult to guess because there aren’t many Wii U games left to port.

Rogers then goes on to clarify even more regarding Nintendo’s intentions for marketing the upcoming Animal Crossing title: suggesting that the company will focus all energy on new Horizons for the first segment of 2020 and follow suit with the two unannounced ports alongside other scheduled releases. Stating that Nintendo prefers to drop the bigger titles in the latter of the year, it is best to expect these anonymous titles before Q3 2020.

Emily Rogers has proven time and time again to know the infrastructure of Nintendo along with reassuring anticipating fans when exactly certain projects will arrive. Last year, Rogers shared that the then-approaching Nintendo Direct was pushed instead for a later showing in the first week of September, which she later proven to be right.

What do you think these two returning Wii U titles might be coming to the Nintendo Switch?
