Splatoon 2 has been one of the most popular third person shooter games for the Nintendo Switch since July 2017. While Splatoon 2 is considered to be one of the hottest games for the Switch console there are some who believe that this game could have easily worked on the Nintendo Wii-U prior to the console’s discontinuation early in 2017.
However, the fact that Splatoon 2 is a Wii-U exclusive is one of the few things that contributes to the overall appeal of the game itself. Also, making Splatoon 2 an exclusive title for the Nintendo Switch makes the console itself more appealing to those who were fans of the original Splatoon for the Wii-U. While Splatoon 2 could have worked on the Wii-U in theory it’s better off being an exclusive title for the Nintendo Switch.
