As Nintendo Switch announced, internal thought about further remastered titles for the switch. However, the company attaches great importance to adding new content to the original versions.
One of the most successful titles of the still quite young platform Switch is definitely “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe”, which was released at the end of April.
As the name suggests, we are dealing here with an implementation of the Wii U-Fun-Racers, which has been given various improvements and new content on Switch. Among them are the native 1080p resolution, a revised Battle mode or exclusive driver, which were not on the Wii U at the time.
As Reginald Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo of America, noted in a recent interview, Nintendo is definitely internally thinking about further remastered titles for Switch. These are a good way to make the best titles of the commercially unsuccessful Wii U accessible to a wider audience.
According to Reggie, Nintendo assumes that Switch will exceed the sales figures of the Wii U in the shortest possible time. If, however, further remasters like the recently announced “Pokémon Tekken DX” follow, these should necessarily be so-called “Definitive Editions”, which offer new content and technical improvements.
Which titles Nintendo has exactly in mind, did not want or could Reggie however betrayed.
