Topic: Are we about to get a flood of remakes on 3DS?

Posts 1 to 17 of 17


Fire Emblem Echoes is a remake of Gaiden.
There is a rumor of Super Star Saga being remade for 3DS.
Many are speculating that the new multi-player Kirby game will be a remake of Kirby and the Amazing Mirror.

If all of these turn out to be true then a good chunk of Nintendo's first party output on 3DS will be remakes this year. It almost seems as if all of the 3DS teams who finished games in 2016 were told to make a quick turn around game for 3DS in order to help with the 2017 line-up.

FE Fates team goes on to make Echoes.
Paper Jam team moves on to Super Star Saga DX
Planet Robobot Team moves on the Kirby multiplayer title

Add to that the fact that both Ever Oasis and Hey! Pikmin were made by contract studios and think the big picture is that most (90%) of Nintendo's internal talent is committed to Switch development and the rest of their 3DS output will be churned out as cheaply as possible.

I do not mind remakes at all, but it does not look good for 3DS getting any more big, original games from Nintendo. Even if Pokémon Stars is on 3DS it will be a variation on Sun/Moon which was cheap and quick to turn around.



Nope because the 3DS is dead.

I wouldn't be against it.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

Also should mention the remakes of Deep Strange Journey and Radiant Historia.

Personally, I would be totally cool with Nintendo remaking Zelda: The Minish Cap using the Link Between Worlds engine.



Honestly, I'd love this just because Nintendo can spend more time working on Switch releases than keeping a years-old system alive with brand-new and exciting releases.

@Joeynator3000, don't laugh as it very well could happen. Nintendo might make it for both systems, the only difference having a better Resolution. I'm hoping for a reveal this week.

I love to draw. That's pretty cool, I guess.


Probably a few "smaller" remakes, big scale remakes I believe will go to the Switch

Nintendo Rules
NES Classic Edition Owner
Come on Reggie, Give us Mother 3!
Keyblade Wielder and Jedi
History is cool


These are the remakes that sho'uld come- Twilight Princess, Windwaker, other titles that would be nice including Splatoon! Anybody else remember that April Fool's joke? But seriously these should come to New 3ds.

Please look yourself in the face and slap yourself for saying a stupid thing.

I'm not what to post, but something should pop up here eventually.


You're forgetting Fire Emblem Warriors which is coming to the Switch and the New 3DS. It isn't a remake either.

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Gold and Ultra Sun.


@-_- Why? The only games we have on there is Hey Pikmin, Ever Oasis and Miitopia.

Can't complain when Europe didn't get either game.

Maybe you'd be happier if the Americas finally got Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland? And I'm only half-joking because that's a legitimately good game.

What a beautiful signature.

Twitter, not like there's anything interesting on there


I don't think we'll get a flood, but there will be low budget projects. They won't kill the 3DS just yet, when they have a 60+ million install base and the Switch still has supply problems.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Xenoblade Chronicles 2
