What games from older Nintendo consoles do you want to see reborn

#1 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4758 posts) -

So with Kid Icarus: Uprising breathing some new life into that franchise, I was thinking about other games from Nintendo's past that I'd like to see given the same treatment. Not necessarily just Nintendo's own games, though. Personally I'd like to see Mischief Makers given the stereoscopic treatment, that was a fun 2D platformer!

Jet Force Gemini.

A true sequel to Star Fox 64. Not the crap we've been getting since that game came out.

#4 Posted by 71Ranchero (2772 posts) -

Virtual Boy Wario Land.

Blaster Master. There's so many things they could do with that game nowadays. Although depending on what happened to Sunsoft, the licensing situation might end up putting it on another console

I don't. I want to see something new.

Perhaps a 3D competitive reimagining of Balloon Fight?

Battletoads

We have been getting new titles. Xenoblade ring a bell?

It's good to have both, don't you think? Besides, you can still get something new within the same franchise: Uprising is nothing like the original Kid Icarus.

Kid Icarus.

...oh, wait. I guess nothing then.

#12 Posted by bonafide (35 posts) -

Not neccesarily one of Nintendo's own games so I dunno if this 100% counts anymore, but I'd kill to see a new Banjo Kazooie game. The first and second ones were my childhood.

I also love the Wario Land suggestion above.

Balloon Fight and StarTropics as always, gogogogogo Nintendo.

I want to know what they would do with Ice Climbers.

For the 3DS? That's news to me.

Oh 3DS. In that case, Kid Icarus is practically new at this point given that it plays nothing like its predecessors. The gameplay is all new, and I imagine that there are a lot of people playing Uprising that never played the earlier games.

Yeah, I'm going to say that old game revivals are kind of worthless and Nintendo's development umbrella has such amazingly creative people that I really want to see Nintendo start pumping out new stuff.

But if I have to take a re-imagining...

Gargoyles Quest was a pretty awesome side-scrolling platformer for the Gameboy that apparently had a couple of sequels (I had no idea), but could make for an interesting revival.

I'd also like to see them make a new Donkey Kong game in the style of the Gameboy title. I'm sure I've mentioned this on the site before... and also mentioned that the "spirtual successors" of the Minis games aren't remotely the same.

When we inevitably see a new Castlevania title (astounds me we haven't heard anything on the 3DS front), I want it to be in the style of Castlevania 3 and no more of this Metroidvania, "we've done this a million times and none of them actually compare to Symphony of the Night" crap. Although I do love the Sorrow series to death (and played them before playing Symphony), I'm just sick of that formula. No, not even Order of Ecclasia counts. It was kind of a hybrid of the two styles, and I think it failed on both ends. Not popular opinion, I know... a lot of people adored that game. I didn't.

I think we are over due for a new Castlevania. 

#19 Posted by Galiant (2193 posts) -
@Hailinel Well, the topic is in the 3DS forums so that's what I assumed we were talking about - and Kid Icarus was what sparked the entire topic. So besides that, yeah, I'd still like to see something new.

See if games like Xenoblade actually DID come for the 3DS no one would be complaining. But alas, I can't quite take the Wii on a bus.

  • New eShop Pokémon Pinball.
  • Yoshi's Island (or Wii U I could get down with that)
  • Donkey Kong

Yes, definitely this (just as long as there's an option to turn the red greyscale).

I dont think it would be too much work for them to color the sprites. This game deserves it anyways. Its one of the best Mario games ever made but nobody has ever played it.

I *was* going to say this. It's a game I obviously missed out on, and one of two games from the VirtualBoy I think look great (though they didn't necessarily use the 3D to its potential) and want to play. The other is Mario Clash.

#29 Posted by awadnin (275 posts) -

I want this on my 3DS.

#30 Posted by Morrow (1829 posts) -

Games like Secret of Mana or Terranigma with todays graphics. Oh yeah...

You saying you wouldn't get excited for a Nester's Funky Bowling revival? Get outta here!

I own that game and believe it or not I still play it. Its not terrible.

For the record, I think VBWL makes great use of 3D.

Earthbound

Also wasn't there a thread about this a month ago? I think I said Star Tropics in that one. Fucking fuck!

Gyromite...

Conkers Bad Fur Day.

That will never happen though, so Pokemon Puzzle League?

#36 Posted by 49th (2758 posts) -

I'd like to see a new 2D Metroid game and a new 2D Castlevania for 3DS. Those type of games are perfect on handhelds for me, I love them.

I'm definitely saying that.
