According to Nintendo of America's President Reggie Fils-Aime, however, Nintendo does have grand plans for reviving retro games via the Switch Online subscription service. In a chat with Kotaku, he said it would be "the place" to be for nostalgic experiences:

An early screening for the movie was held recently, despite the film still actually being in its post-production process, and initial murmurings suggest that this could actually be something rather special.

Creating technologies for every title.
US software developer Niantic might be best known for nowadays, but this wasn't always the case. Before the company shot to fame with its recent mobile sensation, it was focused on its own augmented reality game Ingress. With GO now nearly two-and-a-half years into its lifespan, Niantic has been able to return some of its focus to its own IP. Yesterday, it launched Ingress Prime - a rework of the original game built on lessons from Pokémon GO.
The team at Niantic is now hoping some of the features in the newer version of Ingress can be implemented into GO eventually. According to Eurogamer, one feature that would be appreciated is the new prestige system. Once players hit the level cap in Ingress Prime, they can now roll back to level one and gain unspecified "unique benefits" - with their prestige status also reflected to other players.

Thinking about it logically, of course there wouldn't be a single version of the Switch. The DS-style consoles, for example, had plenty of upgrades and designs where smaller bits and bobs were improved upon.
