The GameCube has become a fan favorite in the decades since its release, despite it being less than successful during its time. A variety of cherished games found a home within the system, some of which have been ported to Switch. During a recent investor Q&A, CEO Shuntaro Furukawa responded to questions about Nintendo Switch Online; while avoiding a question about a 3DS app, he did answer a question about playing GameCube software on Switch.

“Among the titles released for Nintendo GameCube, the HD versions of Pikmin 1 and Pikmin 2 (digital version) just recently became available on June 22 for Nintendo Switch. We value your request and opinion on this topic,” said Furukawa.

In addition to the mentioned Pikmin HD versions, Nintendo also released a remastered edition of Metroid Prime earlier this year. Additionally, Bandai Namco unveiled a remaster of Tales of Symphonia, and they have plans to release a collection featuring the two Baten Kaitos games later this year. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker at least got an HD remaster on Wii U, but games like Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door have yet to be offered on any other Nintendo platform.
