It’s no secret that Switch has nabbed a large chunk of Wii U’s biggest titles such as Mario Kart 8, Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3D World and many, many more…but there’s still a number of games that remain exclusive to Wii U. We didn’t just want to highlight any old games though, these 13 are legitimately fantastic and we hope to see some of them join the likes of Bayonetta 2 in the series of ports to Switch.

These range from obvious choices such as Xenoblade Chronicles X to lesser known gems like Project Zero: Maiden of Blackwater. Wii U may not have been Nintendo’s most popular machine but that doesn’t devalue how good some of its games were, numerous titles have lived a successful second life on the Switch (Mario Kart 8 ranking as the Switch’s best selling game).

We are however excluding games that have essentially been replaced by similar iterations on Switch. These include Splatoon, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Mario Maker.

Have you played any of the games mentioned in this video and are there any other Wii U games you still have an attachment to?

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation?
