Ripped apart might be a better way to put it. In portable mode or on a Switch Lite they're replaced by touchscreen controls which would need new code. Playing on a TV and in tabletop mode uses motion controls but they'll have needed to modify them on the code side there as well because the Switch doesn't do motion controls the way the Wii did. So they've had to rework some pieces to get it running properly, but the game itself is being rendered via emulation.

Seems like the idea of Nintendo adding N64, Gamecube, and even Wii games to their Online service isn't as far fetched as people thought. That might be why this is a limited release, they'll add these games to their online service after this collection goes away. A little bit of a dump on people paying for it now if they do that.
It depends, if this emulator is based on their previous WiiU one, it might just be a string of tested titles left in (again). Personally, I doubt Nintendo will bring this to the Switch anytime soon in full force, I truly hope so, but their track record regarding the Switch support (as in services, not the games) is hilariously awful...

The games haven't been ported to the Switch, they're just running via an emulator the same way you can use an emulator on a PC to play the games.

Ah! I gotcha. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I appear to be lucky (sorry to those who haven't had their copy dispatched, I wish you all luck) as the funds have been taken from my account and my order now says awaiting dispatch from Nintendo's UK Store.

I have preloaded my digital copy and will keep my physical copy sealed and secure for future security when the eshop eventually closes down in the far future.
