Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is an upcoming game for the Switch and 3DS that you can play a demo of right now on both systems. It launches on July 13th but we know quite a bit about it already and from what we know it looks like a great Wii U port. Digital Foundry reviews the new Switch and 3DS demo and compares them to the original Wii U version. Some good news is that the Switch version ups the resolution from 720p => 1080p a really nice improvement. The Digital Foundry video mentioned that the Wii U capped most games as 720p as I figured they'd be 1080p but it seems the Switch is a much more powerful system.

Nintendo keeps brining the amazing Wii U ports and in this instance they also are bringing it to the 3DS. It's cool to see the 3DS keep being supported and Nintendo is talking about a possible successor to it. I'm open to a new DS but as with most things Nintendo, it's a surprising rumor to hear as I figured they'd be focusing on a Switch only future.

I'm hoping for more ports. At this point I want to eventually buy a Wii U but what I would prefer is not having the need to do so in order to play a handful of games.

When are you getting a switch, Jon?

Right so I think about this from time to time as I don’t have a switch yet but want one. Two scenarios where I’d pick one up. First is if they announce Mario Maker for this year. Second case is this Christmas.

So most likely this year? Neat!

Yep. I think that's a very likely possibility. I'm still super happy with the games I have and the 3DS has turned out to be a great system. In fact I think I could keep going for another year on just 3DS games I have yet to buy and the new stuff Nintendo is brining to it. After I got the Mega Man legacy collection 1 on 3DS it basically made it THE way I play Mega Man 2. I still play it on the NES Classic too but it's a bit easier to pull out the 3DS whenever.
