You have to port past games to Switch before they will even run.

Gamecube, Wii and Wii U used a PowerPC based CPU architecture and made bringing past games pretty easy, because they were all actually backwards compatible (even if Wii U didn’t expose that for GC it was still compatible) whereas the Switch uses an ARM based CPU so games need to be recompiled and other work done to make them run and run well.
