7. Kirby And The Rainbow Curse

HAL Laboratory,

Should it be allowed on the Switch: Yes

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse was unfortunately underappreciated due to the console it was on. It has a distinct clay art style and a unique gameplay gimmick where you must paint platforms for Kirby to roll around on.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a pretty great game, however, it is so linked to the Wii U's GamePad that many people don't think it could work on the Switch.

The thing is the game would work perfectly on a handheld Switch.

It's not like games haven't come to the Switch that allow you to play on the TV but are clearly made to be played portably. Super Mario Maker 2 is a nightmare to play on the TV but feels great in handheld mode.

Allow you to paint with your fingers in handheld mode but offer the right stick as a way of painting if the game is on the TV. Sorted.

It wouldn't be ideal playing the game on the TV but like with Super Mario Maker 2, people would quickly catch on that they should probably just play it portably.
