Wii U has the option to open the last 8 software titles you played thanks to QuickStart menu. That may be coming over to switch so I am hoping. Or hopefully they improve Wii U quick start cuz it was the best update they made to be able to jump right into software after turning on Wii U.
Wii U is dead. The only thing Nintendo is going to do for Wii U is release Zelda BoW… months after it is released for Switch.
