Wii Sports is as vital to Nintendo's history as Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon, and yet it is criminally absent from the Switch.

Wii Sports is the best-selling console exclusive, and fourth highest selling game of all time just behind Tetris, Grand Theft Auto 5, and Minecraft. It's responsible for putting Nintendo front-and-center in mainstream media, and helping catapult the Wii's sales ahead of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There is no denying Wii Sports' importance to Nintendo's success, and yet it's been missing for nearly a decade.

With the exception of the haphazard release of Wii Sports Club for the Wii U, Wii Sports' legacy is slipping to the sands of time, which all more offensive when considering all the pieces to give it life are on the Nintendo Switch.

Join Kurt Indovina, as he traces back Wii Sports' impact on culture, its importance to Nintendo's success, and how the game holds up 15 years later.
