Fantasy draft: "It would be great on the Switch"

If you've listened to anybody talk about video games over the past year, you've probably heard the sentiment: this would be great on the Switch.

So, if you could fantasy draft five games onto the Switch, what wold they be? It's a fantasy, so no limitations here. Exclusives and games that probably couldn't run on the Switch are open here. Let's also assume these Switch ports contain all updates and DLC to date.

  • Burnout Paradise Remastered
  • XCOM 2
  • The Sims 4
  • No Man's Sky
  • Super Mario Maker

That Radiant Historia rerelease. Or basically anything scheduled to release on the 3DS when the Switch is already a thing.

Also Persona 5. And 4. And 3.

And Doom. Old Doom. The Doom 3 BFG Edition would be cool, actually, because then I could have all the Dooms in one nice portable package.

EDIT: Someone mentioned Tokyo Mirage Session below here and I really second that.

Hat in Time, Shadow of Mordor/War without all the Shadow Wars "Please buy our microtransactions" nonsense, Witcher trilogy, Arkham Knight, Stories: The Path of Destinies.

Oh and Persona 3 so I can actually play it.

Considering they seem to be doing every 1st party Wii U exclusive, every time there is a Nintendo Direct, I wait on the edge of my seat for them to announce Tokyo Mirage Sessions for Switch.

Xcom is on Android and runs fine.

And hell yes Diablo 3. Hook it to my veins.

Monster Hunter World. Bring it, Lang. *looks at his copy of borderlands 2 for Vita, weeps*

Mass Effect Thrillogy (though I guess that well's poisoned now for most)

Pretty much any 7th generation game should feasibly be fine on the Switch; that they ever actually make it there is a different story I suppose. In terms of power Switch > Wii U and Wii U > PS3 / 360. Which means we should backport DOOM 2016 on the PS3 / 360. And refrigerators.

Every game so I can stop hearing the phrase or variation on the phrase "Oh man how great would this be on Switch....".

As my 360 is drawing it's last and there's no Xbox One on the horizon for me; if a few of the Live Arcade games that didn't make it to Steam were out it would be nice. In fact, if anything goes, Crackdown, RDR, the Orange Box and Halo 3 would make my train journeys that much more pleasant too.

OP, just a guess, have you been listening to All Fantasy Everything lately?

A Giantbomb app, or at least an internet browser.

Hell yeah. I view everything in terms of fantasy draft now.

Is there a Monkey Ball on the Switch? If not, then that. Would work well by tilting the tablet, imo.

Xcom series for sure (Haven't played 2 yet but one is a must)

Pokemon series (I don't mean to just list series but the entire series should be on this too)

Geometry Wars Evolved

Zero Escape (also a series)

Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1-4

I boxed up my Wii U before finishing Tokyo Mirage Sessions, which is a fine game that I wish supported off-TV play. It's good enough that I'd be shocked if it never made the jump to Switch.

@hatking: It's a damn good podcast. I spent Friday daydreaming about doing a proper E3 draft on these forums. Because I don't want to think about work at work.

@personandstuff: I love it. I definitely support all fantasy drafts now. My buddy gave me the recommendation late last year, and I'm addicted. I've been thinking about going back to the episodes I've missed.

If they put Persona 5 on the Switch I'd have literally no reason to buy a ps4.

Level-5 recently put out a statememt saying they wanna put out pretty much all their 3DS franchises on Switch, but since this is a fantasy draft I'd like them to take that further. Ni No Kuni 2, anyone?

NEW 2D Zelda

NEW Majora's Mask style Zelda utilizing the tech of BotW with a rad new game changing twist, but on a relatively quick development cycle.

NEW Paper Mario/Mario and Luigi/Mario RPG. A worthy successor to the Thousand Year Door.

NEW Animal Crossing

Psychonauts 2
