    They technically probably can so long as the gnc controller adapter works on it. My concern with the emulator is some games on the system used the analog controls of the shoulder buttons. So I'm wondering if they are going to kinda of make it so that functionality doesnt exist in the game and its just going to be as if you pressed the button down all the way or are they going to try to make this a gc controller only feature...IF this happens anyway.
    High Enough

    If you haven't seen this before you may have questions...

    If it emulates the Wii U will it be compatible with the Gamepad?

    Highly unlikely, Nintendo went out of their way to make sure most of the Wii/ Wii U accessories didn't work on the Switch.
    The Wii Motes are a No Go. The Hori Pokken Pad is a exception to this how ever, mostly to keep cost down for Porting Pokken.

    Inb4 Nintendo releases the “Switch Wavebird Classic...and it’s a limited release that’s impossible to find/expensive as hell beyond it’s initial launch.
    ...Because Nintendo.

    In downer news apparently Kirby: Star Allies is a 30fps game, resolution on tv seems to be 900p or maybe a little lower (864p?)

    Never will happen. If anything they release the Game Cube Adapter like they did for Smash and have extremely limited releases of a Switch Branded Game Cube Controllers.

    Or Just get a Pro Controller and be done with it.

    I used to keep saying it's a hybrid fighting game...until the very game creator himself said it wasn't...well shit...I gave up there. Having said that, I still like to play fighting game style with stamina mode and no items.

    I never played often with a whole party of 4 much less 8 in Wii U. Hence why I don't see it myself as a party game. I usually was 1on 1

    @Million or anyone else interested. I just dl'ed the demo for Aeterno Blade. Side scroller, Stylish-ARPG. The character models are early Dreamcast style of polygons but the story and characters are straight to the point. Art style is early 90s anime rpg Record of Lodoss War type. Cool so far. Not a day one for me but a definite pick up sometime down the line.

    Walmart is saying that I’ll get Bayonetta 1+2 on the 15th.

    That’s swell.

    Dude. We used to have some epic battles with Melee back in the day. We'd be all shroomin and making rules like giant mode with only super mushrooms in Fourside and shit like that. Crazy fun times.

    Picked up Mercenaries Saga. Not too thrilled about the choppiness of the movement (at least for the first game, not sure about the others), but seems all right so far. Looks Tactics Ogre-ish, and even has some of its mechanics, like MP regen.

    We did that shit too... We had a whole setup where we would do free for all with items, and the top two would fight it out one on one no items, and that winner would determine the rules for the next free for all and we'd rotate like that all night.

    Smash is so fun with multiple players. Had my cousin and his kids over during Christmas and we got to play Smash 4 eight players. Hilarious fun.

    Only way I would play Smash now other than some practice is by Multiplayer.

    I wonder what Hijinks they establish for a Switch version of Smash?

    Some of the Wii U's best games have either already been ported (Mario Kart 8, Pokkén, DK Tropical Freeze, Bayo games), or have sequels already on the Switch (Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2). Unless you love Mario Maker there's no point in holding on to the Wii U.

    There are still a few gems on the Wii U that are still worth playing but yeah, I gotta agree. The reasons for keeping the Wii U around are dwindling by the day

    Can't sideline my Wii U until both Sin and Punishments come out and Mario Maker. Playing a little bit of Twilight Princess HD here and there too.

    I need Bayo with those Joy Cons and yes, I'll probably play those on Wii U at some point this week before my Switch version arrives.

    On another note, I'm hoping DMCV is being delayed to add a Switch version and the HD Collection comes to the Switch. I need all the Stylish Action I can get on this bad boy.

    Nah, I personally still use my Wii U... mainly for Wii games , VC titles I own and Netflix / Crunchyroll.

    That touch screen fast forward or rewind feature will be missed.
