And as promised, Wu Hu Island makes it's third game appearance as a playable map in this game! We should have a character page for that island.

At this point I should just assume anything I enjoyed even a little bit on the N64 is making a comeback? Goemon wasn't too bad.

Is there any Nintendo franchise that people don't consider a 5-star all-time classic?

Well the original Kid Icarus is actually a piece of shit and a lot of people who played it know that and say it. 
Waverace maybe?

Sure. They just don't stay around for people to remember them.

Wave Race has one of the most rabid fans out there. Careful when dropping that name around the internet.....

So I guess the lesson is that Nintendo does listen: they just take 15 years to act on it. Seriously, what they showed off would have made sense 10 years ago :P

You take that back.... 
Hrm, perhaps Ice Climbers, the original Mario Bros (not super mario bros) mach rider (though i'd still love a sequel), Geist (though I personally really enjoyed what it was). There are some, but Nintendo has a pretty good record of excellence.
