Crush 3D to Flatten Your 3DS

Sega to breathe new life into a PSP classic
Crush, a unique PSP puzzler/platformer from 2007, has been outed by the ESRB as heading to the 3DS as Crush 3D.
Crush was a critical success, if not a commercial one, which may give hope to those of you hoping that your favourite less-than-successful franchises might see the light of day once more. Sega's official description of the original Crush is as follows:
Play inside the mind of Danny, an insomniac, in this wacky puzzler. Manipulate the landscape of Danny's dreams from 2D to 3D and back again in order to help him conquer his impossible past. Every enemy and obstacle you overcome brings Danny closer to a full night's sleep.
The ESRB meanwhile describes Crush 3D as:
... a puzzle platformer in which players collect marbles to activate exits and complete each level. As players run and jump through each colourful environment, they can toggle between 2D and 3D perspectives to navigate platforms. Players' 'cartoony' character cries out and loses a life if he falls off tall platforms or is struck by roaming enemies (e.g., giant blocks, slugs). In some sequences, players can use large blocks or balls to squash giant cockroaches; defeated bugs emit large splashes of yellow liquid that stain the ground.
Suffice to say we've got a crush on this one. What niche or semi-niche games do you hope to see new life on the 3DS?
