    Don't see myself playing it unless it's a controller game, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Didn't realize Nintendo had a newer Yoshi game, but it looks like it's for the Wii U. Too bad, looked really neat. :/

    There was a good Monster Hunter on it, but if you played any more recent opus you'll likely not like it too much.

    Not a fan of RPGs or anything turn-based, which pretty much means Japanese titles are probably a no-go. BTW, I loathed Monster Hunter World. Just played it for the Game Pass Quests. If it was more action & adventure with no RPG I probably would have liked it.

    Anyway, this will mainly be the kids system. Wife will probably test it out(Zelda & Animal Crossing), but I don't expect to play on it at all.

    So I guess Xenoblade Chronicles is right out? ;)

    No multiplats means no Lego games? Kirby’s Epic Yarn might be good for young kids, and it’s 2 player. Maybe try Boom Blox / Boom Blox Bash Party, Order Up!, Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection, We Ski / We Ski & Snowboard, or Zack & Wiki. Did Pikmin start out on the Wii?

    Bomberman Land seems to include a classic Bomberman game.

    when your wife tried zelda botw, also try it yourself. Its more "action adventure" than "RPG"

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Kids can play Lego games on any of our Xbox systems. I own quite a few of them already. And yeah, Xenoblade Chronicles is out.

    Your others are good. I think Kirby & Boom Blox would be cool for the kids. Doubt kids would go for pinball though. As for Pikmin, 1 & 2 originally started on Gamecube. They were ported to Wii but as digital games, but didn't release Pikmin 3 until Wii U. :/

    BTW Zelda BOTW is a Wii U & Switch game.

    Looks like a Wii U might still be in order.
