“Switch is not backward compatible with games designed for other systems, and is not currently compatible with controllers designed for other systems,”

“Support for certain controllers may be considered for a future update.“

When questioned about WIiU games eventually ported to Switch, he said that:
“In some cases, games from past systems may be re-released for the Nintendo Switch system as either enhanced or original versions”.
