In 2017, Capcom released Monster Hunter Stories, a game that many overlooked due simply to the fact it was tied to the dying Nintendo 3DS in the Switch Era. It had its flaws, mostly due to a seemingly random combat system that punished players for not knowing very specific patterns, as well as the Monster customization options essentially being locked away until the end game. Let’s not even mention the terrible 3DS resolution. Despite this, Monster Hunter Stories was modern Capcom‘s respectable first stab at the Pokemon clone genre.
Fortunately, the lower than expected sales of this first entry didn’t doom the spin-off to oblivion. Some fine tuning of the combat mechanics, a slightly more matured story, a more palatable art direction, and some HD graphics slapped on to boot, and Capcom would have a Pokemon clone capable of generating decent sales.

Continue reading Pokemon Direct Announced for Tomorrow
The Wii U was a clumsy machine with a poorly realized concept and sparse library. Nintendo’s ill conceived console only sold about 13 million units before it was put down to clear the way for the sleeker, sexier, and better selling Switch. While the library was small, the quality was top tier, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has shown Nintendo is not content with letting some of this generation’s best games fade to obscurity.
With that in mind, here are five great Wii U games that need Switch ports: Continue reading Top 5 Wii U games that need Switch ports
