Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014

Posted by Nintendo Life Staff

Newcomers and some triumphant returns

If you cast your minds back to this time in 2013, it would have been tempting to wonder what games were coming for the rest of that year and into 2014. Long-term line-ups were a mystery, though educated guesses could be made, and then Nintendo blew away some of the obscuring smoke in a January Nintendo Direct. As the year wore on we regular broadcasts, and gradually more and more games were revealed. The end of the year even brought us confirmation of Hyrule Warriors, a Tecmo Koei spin-off that looks set to combine the Zelda and Dynasty Warriors franchises; we don't think many would have put a bet on that 12 months ago.

And so we can expect a similar year, as Nintendo will strategically hit us with announcements and reveals, with some to possibly sneak into 2014 and others to entice us ahead of 2015 arrivals. With that in mind, and considering Nintendo's ability to spring surprises, we've put together a list of 15 games we'd love to be announced this year. We include Wii U and 3DS, and would hope that at least some of these ideas appear — in some form — in a Nintendo Direct or E3 presentation this year; while we've had a bit of fun with these, we also think they're all feasible, albeit to varying degrees. We also want to know what you think, so there are plenty of polls for you to share your thoughts, too.

To be absolutely clear, however, these are game ideas or long-awaited games that the Nintendo Life editorial team hopes to see; there is no suggestion or insight to suggest any of these projects are in development or on the way. This is simply a wishlist.

With that said and without further ado, let's begin.

If you persisted to 100% completion in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption you will have seen an extended ending — we won't give it away (YouTube is the answer if you want to see it) but it suggests that the Prime saga isn't finished. While the Trilogy follows similar mechanics and ideas, a fourth entry in the franchise from Retro Studios could pursue additional gameplay ideas beyond the main first-person adventuring — moments of strategic control of Samus' ship on the GamePad, optional co-op that can be played single player (with AI), local or online, and perhaps cinematic moments and sequences that take cues from the core ideas seen in Nintendo Land's Metroid mini-game. This is a candidate for an ambitious, epic adventure to entice new audiences.

Metroid Dread has been rumoured for far too long, practically confirmed for DS in 2005 / 2006 before gradually disappearing; its existence isn't really in dispute, with persistent suggestions that a storyline is practically finished. A 2D Metroid on Nintendo's current handheld would be a delight, and we'd hope that concept work from Dread's early days can be revived and brought to life — a portable Metroid title is long overdue, and would add further diversity to the 3DS library.

While F-Zero GX was a fine game, it always hurt that Nintendo fans were never given the chance to play the arcade edition - AX - on their GameCube system (at least not officially or easily, anyway). With that in mind, we'd love to see a 3D remaster of this fantastic racer which not only includes all of the content from the domestic edition of the game, but also provides the unique coin-op experience, too; we know the 3DS can push visuals in the GameCube to Wii range. Online races and leaderboards? We'll take those those too, thanks very much.

No, that's not a typo, we're suggesting a Wii U eShop release for a new F-Zero HD title; this caused raging debate in the team. While the 3DS title above fits into the retail remake category, we feel that this franchise could be perfect for an eShop structure on the Wii U, and allow Nintendo to produce a new title with less financial risk. This would have new tracks and look fantastic, but be available at an initial budget price of $10-$15, with additional tracks and cup packs over a number of months to gradually bring the title towards a standard retail price and level of content. It's lower risk for Nintendo, tempts those unfamiliar with the series — it was last seen on GameCube, remember — and follows the increasingly common driving game model of adding content after day one. We'd go crazy for 30-player online multiplayer, too, as the visuals can be attractive without taxing the Wii U's processors too much, leaving room for dealing with all those racers on the track.

We may be wrong, naturally, but we think this is a no-brainer and likely to be on the cards. We've already had The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, and the release of both Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2 in a single, standard price set would give the popular Wii games another shot at the market. These games already look great — the same could be said for the original Wind Waker — but HD compilations are a chance to fill out a quiet release month with a little less effort.

Masahiro Sakurai is rather busy right now, but we'd love an announcement along these lines in 2014, perhaps with another team beginning work with Sakurai-san consulting. Kid Icarus: Uprising was terrific, but with the Wii U there's the possibility of utilising various control schemes to satisfy anyone — options of the GamePad or Wii Remote and Nunchuk — while the world of the 3DS title could be even more epic and visually impressive with the Wii U's capabilities. This would be a follow-up featuring Pit and Dark Pit working together — with optional co-op possibilities — that follows on from Uprising; a darker storyline with flashes of humour could pave the way for truly outstanding set-pieces.

Given the success of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, surely this is a given — the numerous rumours we've seen in the past year would certainly seem to suggest as much. While Ocarina of Time was a seminal title which already had plenty of fame (and fans) behind it, Majora's Mask is perhaps less renowned and therefore a more exciting candidate for re-release. The N64 original was released late in the life of the console, when many players had perhaps moved on to other formats. This is a title which deserves more attention, and we hope that Nintendo is already hard at work on porting it to the 3DS.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon was a 3DS highlight of 2013, and loose rumours have suggested a port onto the Wii U. We don't want a port, but a new game that brings the brothers together in the franchise. We love the Mario & Luigi handheld games, with Dream Team showing that Luigi doesn't have to play second fiddle, and think a charming adventure in the Mansion series would suit the Bros. nicely. The Wii U setup would easily support co-op, while a multiplayer mode could borrow plenty of asynchronous ideas from Luigi's Ghost Mansion in Nintendo Land.

Art Academy is all very well when it comes to touch-screen painting, but where's the love for Nintendo's original creative package? Released alongside the SNES mouse, this tool was surprisingly deep for the time, even allowing you to craft tunes. The Wii U GamePad would be the perfect way to replicate the mouse-driven interface, and Nintendo could even retrofit the game with the ability to publish content to Miiverse.

This seems inevitable. With the success of Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the 3DS, a Wii U entry could up the scale for cities, albeit quaint AC-style settings, with plenty of online interaction. The GamePad and its microphone are perfect for online socialising, too, with the Animal Crossing Plaza on Wii U hopefully representing an initial step towards a new title. This could do everything seen before in the series, and take features a notch further.

NES Remix has already proven the merit of ransacking Nintendo's back catalogue to create new and inventive gameplay ideas, and the logical progression is to move onto other classic formats - the most obvious being the SNES. Imagine Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Country, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and many other classic 16-bit titles, all mashed-up in a mini-game focused Wii U eShop download. While we're here, we'd also like to see GB Remix and GBC Remix on the 3DS eShop, too.

Rosalina has been getting a lot of exposure lately, appearing in Super Mario 3D World as an unlockable character and being confirmed as a fighter in the forthcoming Super Smash Bros. title for 3DS and Wii U. Sense a theme here? Surely Nintendo is looking into giving Rosalina her own outing, and we'd be willing to bet it's going to be a download title, possibly with a star-gazing focus. How about a puzzle title which uses the 3DS console's augmented reality capabilities to simulate looking through a telescope, gazing at the real night-sky in some activities? It could be a welcome, and educational, change of pace.

At last year's Eurogamer Expo in London, we noticed that the Star Fox 64 3D multiplayer mode went down very well with those that attended our StreetPass Zone and took part in the various challenges we had running. Taking the dog-fighting concept and expanding it feels like a no-brainer for us; cross-platform play on Wii U and 3DS would ensure a bountiful number of players, and the second-screen prowess of the GamePad could allow for some proper asymmetrical gameplay - one person per team could be assigned the role of commander, issuing orders, deploying item drops and generally overseeing the battle. While many would rather have a new single-player Star Fox, this would tide us over nicely for the time being and represent Nintendo's first online-only eShop game.

Fire Emblem might be one of Nintendo's hottest RPG franchises right now, but it's easy to forget that the series didn't make it to the west until 2003. The previous five entries have all remained Japan-only, but given the success of Awakening, could we possibly see Nintendo localising the games for release on the 3DS and/or Wii U eShops? We're willing to bet that many fans would also be willing to pay for all five titles — with modern tweaks and the additional option of Awakening's "Casual" mode — on a single 3DS game card, or a Wii U disc. You're sitting on a cash mountain, Nintendo!

The Paper Mario series is typically associated with lengthy RPG adventures, so we're suggesting a slightly more free-form, shorter quest. Taking some cues from Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! but being far superior, this would include a fun adventure where Mario and chums solve puzzles and take on challenges not with stickers, but by crafting Origami on the GamePad screen. While the main game would be structured and help gamers along as they master touch screen crafting — it would be like a puzzle game when forming shapes — a custom option could allow for new Origami shapes and models to be formed from scratch or begun from templates representing the Paper Mario universe. A true Virtual Paper adventure that could make great use of Miiverse, too.

Those are some of our ideas. We've left some big franchises out, we know, but have tried to capture ideas that we think would be enjoyable and have decent odds of being close to reality for announcements in 2014. We want to know what you'd love to see in 2014, however (Advance Wars has to be one, right?) so hit us up via the Contact Form — we'll pick some of the best ideas for a follow-up article.

In the meantime, let us know which of these ideas is your favourite in the poll below, and share your thoughts in the comments section.

I'm all for a Wii-u Animal Crossing, as long as it isn't as bad as City Folk.

Not that City Folk was terrible, its just, compare the content between the first Animal Crossing into Wild World, it was astounding how much they added to Wild World.

Then go from City Folk to New Leaf, the bar was raised again. I don't want another shallow game like City Folk, which felt like a port of wild world with better graphics. I want a full blown new game with a lot of NEW interesting features added.



Darren1986 said:

For all of these games to launch in 2014, is a little ambitious. But there are some great titles there that I would love to see. Ultimately, I think it has been way too long since we had a new Metroid title, and while Metroid Prime 4 may seem like a good idea, I think continuing on with the Prime storyline is a mistake. A game in the style of Metroid Prime but with a new antagonist and threat would be better. For now though, my choice is Metroid Dread. A sequel to Metroid Fusion has been something fans such as myself have been waiting for, for over 11 years.



Peach64 said:

Pretty interesting list! Of course it's a bit hard to tell wether I'd want a title just from a name, but I'd be certainly very interested in new Metroid, F-Zero and Star Fox games, and while I'm not normally a fan of HD ports and remakes, a Fire Emblem Anthology would be nice considering how expensive anything prior too Awakening is.

People always flame me and list eshop titles, 2nd party titles or 3rd party exclusives, but I really, REALLY want to see new IPs from Nintendo themselves. From EAD, from Miyamoto. Part of the excitement is seeing the new IPs emerge, during that early period where nobody wants to blow their big name IPs at a time when the user base is so small. Not everything sticks, but usually a good number of those early new IPs end up becoming huge across the life cycle of the generation.



CanisWolfred said:

Yeah. I think F-Zero AGX is the only one I can get behind. A lot of these series I'd like to see get an entry, but I don't agree with the ideas you've put out there, such as a strictly dogfighting star fox game, or a DLC-focused F-Zero.



Genesaur said:

I wouldn't want them to call it Metroid Prime 4, but of COURSE I'd buy it. I adore Metroid to no end. And F-Zero on Wii U is what that console has been (in my imagination) positively begging for. And Mario Paint? That and Pokémon Snap are pretty much the reasons why the Wii U should exist, in the first place.

Star Fox is kind of a given, if you ask me, as is Metroid Dread (fingers crossed, anyway). The latter in particular could really show off some impressive background layering with the stereoscopic 3D. Just imagining it, I think it'd be the most visually stunning 3D sidescroller - what, with all the various alien flora and fauna hanging out across four or more layers behind Samus... oh, man, I've got chills! Dem Morph Ball puzzles, yo.

Paper Mario doing an origami sorta thing sounds really neat. I wonder why they thought of stickers, first.

Mario & Luigi's Mansion would be a travesty! I couldn't accept Mario stealing Luigi's ghost-hunting thunder.



Dark-Luigi said:

Rosalina's Observatory
Paper Mario: Origami
Mario Paint
Mario & Luigi's Mansion
and Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection?! HEEEEEEELLLLLLLL YYEEEEEEESSSSS!!!!



ThomasBW84 said:

@Darren1986 What Anthony said, we're talking announcements here Just like the January 2013 comparison — the odd game arrived this year, with more than half the following year.



Extreeeme said:

I'd rather prefer:

  • Kirby U
  • 3D Donkey Kong U (Banjo-Kazooie style)
  • Pokemon U

And I'd just hate: more remakes and minigames.



EarthboundBenjy said:

Metroid Prime is my second-favourite video game of all. Majora's Mask is my third-favourite.
I felt that KI:Uprising didn't work on a handheld - I would have stuck with it way longer if I was pointing a Wii Remote rather than awkwardly holding a 3DS.
Fire Emblem and Paper Mario are two of my favourite series ever, but strangely I already own both Awakening and Sticker Star but have yet to try either... I'm too busy with Bravely Default, I guess.
I have no interest in the F-zero or Starfox series at all. ...And I've had enough Animal Crossing to last me a lifetime, so that's also a no-go for me too.
Overall, I voted Majora 3D on the last poll.



ajcismo said:

Its not so much any game in particular, but I'm wishing 2014 brings systems like N64, Saturn, Dreamcast, and Gamecube to the VC.



cesardka said:

A little note for Fire Emblem: we already got the first game (Shadow Dragon) on west for DS and it was pretty mediocre. FE1, 2 and 3 are pretty weak. BUT of they deliver a Fire Emblem 4 & 5 remake (the very best games in this franchise), that would something. Godspeed, Sigurd...



Grumblevolcano said:

F-Zero AGX looks most interesting for me, F-Zero GX is one of my favourite Gamecube games but I never managed to find an AX machine.
All the ideas look rather neat apart from the DLC focused F-Zero UX. New DLC for games is great but I really don't like the current DLC structure for driving games like Forza.
What I'd really like is a Wii U HD version of Metroid Prime Hunters as I really disliked the control system for that game but apart from that is was great.



King47 said:

I just want path of radiance and radiant dawn on the wii u eshop. If they can manage to put them on the 3ds, I will but them for whatever price.



Einherjar said:

Are you kidding me NL ? O.o
Are you seriously thinking that this list would work without a "Hell Yeah !! to all of them" button ?
No seriously, the list is awesome and i sooo wish that some of them would become true



Rainpaw7 said:

A Pokemon game for the Wii U and Majora's Mask 3D would be awesome in my opinion... There are so many awesome games on this list though!



DreamOn said:

As thought-out as this list is I think Nintendo will have it beat after all of 2014s announcements are through. And that can't upset anyone



Bass_X0 said:

I'd like to see Mario Kart 2 on 3DS eShop. It would be Mario Kart 7 with the courses from Mario Kart 64 (the second Mario Kart game).

Fire Emblem Anthology should look and feel like Awakening, but with the first five games. The description above makes it sound like a compilation of translated but otherwise unaltered NES and SNES games.

I'd also like for Donkey Kong 3D Land and Wario 3D Land on 3DS. They would be sequels to Super Mario 3D Land but would also feel like 3D versions of the characters own games rather than being Super Mario 3D Land with different characters.

Pokémon Wave Race has you racing actual Pokemon in the water around a variety of actual locations from the games. Only Pokemon that know Surf are allowed and you can use three other moves from the main games to attack your opponents with. So basically Mario Kart crossed with Wave Race with Pokemon characters.



Linkstrikesback said:

Wow, Metroid Prime IV is winning the "favourite from this list" poll at the moment.

Shame it's not going to happen in 2014. Retro took 2 years to put out metroid prime 2 and that was when they already had everything left over from Metroid prime 1 ready to speed up development.

They can't possibly made a Metroid prime 4 properly in around a year after finishing DK Tropical freeze. (Though I would dearly love to be wrong)



NintyMan said:

Great list, I would buy most of them.
Games I would also like:
1. WarioWare 3DS (3DS)
2. Wario 3D Land (3DS)
3. A 3D Donkey Kong (Wii U)
4. Mario Party 10 (Wii U)



Gerbwmu said:

I really expect an SNES Remix but near the holidays of 2014 because NES Remix 2 will probably arrive around E3. I'd love some sort of Fire Emblem collection or even some VC releases but I won't hold my breath. Any and all games are welcome though.....never know what will be gems



Pj1 said:

A remake in HD of Super Mario 64 would be good. A SNES remix that sounds good too!!



Genesaur said:

I was gonna add this into my previous post, but it deserves a comment all its own.

GUYS, what if they released a new Custom Robo game, with online play and everything? Anyone who played the one on GameCube knows the sheer mind-blowing potential, here!



BestBuck15 said:

Where's Waverace U? I would love a new F Zero but for it to be released only on eshop and in installments sounds like a flipping nightmare. Here's an idea made the game and when it's finished release it on disc. I think Wii U user base is a little different than Wii user base. Only a little though.



Slapshot said:

I want to see more side titles released from Game Freak. Not really a sequel to HarmoKnight, but more frest eShop titles that offer us something unique and fun.

I know that the possibility of this happening is indeed quite high, but I want to see it nonetheless. A proper 3D sequel to Drill Dozer would be ace too!



NorthLightSuplx said:

I bought a Wii u just for the possibility of metroid in HD. I would love to play both Mario galaxy games using dual sticks and I am all for skyward sword with dual stick control.



Solid_Stannis said:

As much as it is is completely irrelevant to my interests, the fans deserve another Metroid Prime game. The N have got a good amount of franchises that they more or less, ignore.

Oh and a Rosalina game would literally give me cancer. She's already featured in a number of games she doesn't deserve to be in. I always found her unengaging and unrelatable.



komodo182 said:

Fire Emblem, Kirby platformer like Kirby's Dream Land, Golden Sun and Advance Wars Games would give Nintendo a lot of my money....also Earthbound too. Frankly, more SNES style rpg games would also make me more poor.



Zemus-DJ said:

Metriod Dread all the way!! Gimme that 2D side scrolling metriod I've been longing for with 3D depth and visuals Mmmmm ^.^ I grave Zelda MM as well <3



Deathgaze said:

  • Earthbound 2 (Mother 4)
  • The World Ends With You 2
  • HD Remaster pack of Illusions of Time, Terrigima and Soul Blazer

More RPGs, please.



GoombaJMR said:

TBH I wouldn't want a Paper Mario game like the Origami Idea stated above (which isn't bad, just doesn't seem good), and although it seems more paper-istic, I would rather prefer the next Paper Mario to play like the first and TTYD.
Imagine such a paper world in HD, adventuring around beautiful places and wonderful music



XCWarrior said:

This list is a microcosm of just how narrow minded Nintendo fans are right now. More than half of the options are remakes, compliations or just another sequel.

Also sad, based on poll results so far:
1) The #1 game is for a franchise that needed to change of direction after the first 3 games were made b/c they didn't sell well. (Metroid Prime)
2) The #2 want is a HD remake (Majora's Mask).
3) Almost all the other games just sound like basic sequels, nothing new to really excite the fan base and really sell new systems.

I want a new Star Fox, and I'm sure there are people who want F-Zero, but I also know there is about a .01% chance of that happening. The only other games I voted for were Kid Icarus on Wii U and SNES Remix. The rest of the games I really don't want to see.



Shiryu said:

I almost broke my mouse hitting "Yeah, Definitely!" on both F-Zero titles. I would still like to have a complete game on a Wii U disc. I know, I am old-school and sentimental like that for no logic reason any more.

I just noticed that I pretty much just hit "Yeah, Definitely!" on every title up there. Hope Nintendo is taking notes, there's a lot of my money I want to part with them if they let me.

I would also like to add a titles. Taking the open world approach of GTA, set on a futuristic, utopian wasteland, the player would be free to take on missions and go about his business. Players could team up and go online and perform even more dangerous missions kinda like "Monster Hunter". Yep that's right, my suggestion for a 2014 reboot:


Just think about it.



TourianTourist said:

Considering that Retro Studios should be behind it, Metroid Prime 4 in 2014 would be rushed. 2015 maybe. Though a new Metroid game for 3DS made by Sakamoto might be possible.

But Majora's Mask 3D for me, that's on top of my personal wish list.



Expa0 said:

  • A new 2D Metroid for 3DS
  • FZero for Wii U
  • A new Advance Wars for 3DS (With style similar to DoR and grand amounts of content like in Dual Strike)

These would be my top 3 dream Nintendo games.



baba_944 said:

For the other Sonic game "SEGA's" developing I want "Sonic Heroes 2". Keep the game play mechanics the same (I personally enjoyed it), improve on the controls, keep the teams at 4 and 3 characters each, keep the amazing music style, and use the same characters in the first game. I put this in because it was released on the "NINTENDO GAMECUBE" as well.



twistedbee said:

all this proved to me is that im willing to spend way too much money on video games... and i dont feel bad about that.



BertoFlyingFox said:

I would love to see a lot of these games actually take shape. Metroid Prime4 and StarFox being my most favorite wishlist titles up here.

I really hope developers try more concepts with the gamepad screen, and I hope to see a lot more asymmetrical gaming and dual-screen co-op in 2014. Come on Nintendo, you can do it!



XFsWorld said:

Uh....NL why did you do that to me! I'm getting excited over a game that may not make a return in awhile! [Kid Icarus Fallen ?] :/



Mr_3DS said:

I don't know why, but I've always liked the 2D Metroid games better than 3D...but I'm sure one on the Wii U would bring more people too it.



shigulicious said:

I understand the purpose of this article. All I really want to see right now is a concrete release date for "X".



Nintenjoe64 said:

I want MK8 to have every single retro track available on day one. Can't believe they've never tried to sell all of them as DLC packs!



GN004Nadleeh said:

how about a sequel to metroid fusion, i'd like to know what happens next. a pokemon game and a new horror game similar to eternal darkness or at least get the gamecube on virtual console. please



GraveLordXD said:

Metroid prime !!! But yeah I voted yes for all of them
I'd like to see Nintendo do a better job with the virtual console they keep releasing junk or games we already have on the Wii
Why not bring us games like star tropics, crystalis, battle of Olympus and such games that are gems and were never released on it yet???
Also GBA games to the 3ds and Wii u wtf?
N64, GameCube



Obito_Sigma said:

I had a hard time between Majora's Mask 3D and Metroid Prime IV, but I felt that a new release is more important that a 3D remake. I love the gameplay of Metroid Prime, and I hope that they start a new stoy line completely reborn. Paper Mario is one of the only Nintendo franchises that I have never even touched yet, and it may have been my choice if I played one of the games. There are just too many games out there.

Not too sure about a Metroid 2D platformer, since the only ones that I played were the original and Other M... AC City Life would have to have more content if it wants to play at home rather than on the go, whenever I like... ACNL was the first AC game I played, and I don't think that I could sit and play it at home... it'll be too repetitive and boring quickly.

Star Fox has a lot of potential and it hasn't had good games recently if you exclude Star Fox 64. It needs to be done correctly and it is possible. I wouldn't buy the Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection if it is just those two games with the price of Metroid Prime Trilogy. At least MP1 and MP2 in the Trilogy had the new playstyle. An HD remake of SMG and SMG2 is too soon and we would just be playing the same game using the same playstyle, the Wii Remote. I'd wait another generation. Finally, I'd like a Luigi's Mansion sequel sometime, but I wouldn't like Mario to be in it. Mario stars in far too many games, and Luigi finally has his own popular franchise that has not been a spoof or DLC of another game. Don't touch it, and give Luigi his spotlight for once.



AtlanteanMan said:

I like all of the writer's ideas, and would like to add a few (and I think this post will show that the answer to the Wii U's third-party support struggles AND the perceived decline of Japanese developers lies in the fact they're simply sitting on a MOUNTAIN of iconic, very much still-marketable franchises):

1) A Wii U (turn-based/strategic) Advanced Wars with a full campaign AND a fully featured multiplayer mode for up to four players (players would take turns holding the Wii U gamepad so the others couldn't see your moves in the "Fog of War"), perhaps even with the ability to create and share your own maps to extend the play value.

2) A full line of Sega Saturn HD remakes for the 3DS and the Virtual Console.

3) Sega franchises (pick from these and a LOT more):
a) Valkyria Chronicles sequel
b) Skies of Arcadia sequel
c) A story-based, offline Phantasy Star set back in the Algol Star System (which we haven't seen since PS IV on the GENESIS!).
d) Dragon Force (or a sequel)
e) ThunderForce (this is an awesome schmup series by Technosoft with rockin' music that would look AMAZING on either Wii U or 3DS).
f) Shenmue
g) LandStalker
h) Panzer Dragoon and/or a Panzer Dragoon Saga remake or sequel
i) Bug! for 3DS
j) A full HD remake of Shining Force III (all three Scenarios) for 3DS or WiiU; either one would be a SYSTEM-SELLER.
k) An all-new, old school turn-based tactical Shining Force for either 3DS or Wii U

4) And while we're on the theme of fellow Japanese developers:
a) LUNAR 3 by GameArts
b) A new Suikoden by Konami for Wii U AND 3DS
c) Shinobi X Ninja Gaiden (2D old school mechanics with gorgeous Wii U visuals) by Sega and Tecmo
d) An all-new, old school Contra for Wii U by Konami

5) Some Modern-era and WWII-era entries in the excellent Daisenryaku military turn-based Strategy series by SystemSoft for both 3DS and Wii U.

I'm sure I missed some great stuff; any you guys would like to add to this list in the hopes SOMEBODY with influence may be listening?

Ehh Prime 4 would be a step backwards and I really think it would be a shame for that to be the next Metroid game.

I'd rather full F-Zero and StarFox games for Wii U, but I understand the risk.

Your Wii discs of Super Mario Galaxy already play on your Wii U, so a collection seems redundant.

The 3DS remakes of F-Zero AX and Majora's Mask would be great!

"we feel that this franchise could be perfect for an eShop structure on the Wii U, and allow Nintendo to produce a new title with less financial risk. This would have new tracks and look fantastic, but be available at an initial budget price of $10-$15"

Going to disagree here. The asset creation is the most expensive and time consuming part of the development process, and this suggestion if only they make the shell of the game and add tracks as dlc later, just to keep costs under $20. The most expensive part of the process is the core of the game, engine, character models,backgrounds and asset creation. It would be almost as expensive as making a full game.. They would need to charge closer to a full retail price.

Creating new levels, tracks etc is the easy part of the development process...... More likely we would see the shell of the game 30-40$ and each additional track pack at 5 or $10. This is Nintendo they are experts at monetizing the development process.



Arminillo said:


Did you expect NL to make new IP's outta their butts to put on this list? Or think up the mechanics of a new game in a franchise? This is the best you can get with speculation.



GraveLordXD said:

@CaviarMeths anything would probably be a step forward compared to other m
If they do keep it the same style as other m I'd be happy as long as they fix the few serious issues that brought it down



N64ever said:

I'd like to see a new star fox adventures game but taking it to a much deeper story where we finally get to wander outside the Lylat system. I know assault gave us one level doing that but the ground mechanic in that game was very sloppy and doesn't really count as going outside the system.



HandheldGuru97 said:

I would LOVE to see a Wii U version of Animal Crossing, while I do think the series is better suited for handhelds I think it would be fantasic on the U. I'd also love a 2D Metroid on the 3DS that would be awesome (although I don't want a over saturation of 2D platformers on the 3DS this year so I could wait till 2015). Still a fine wish list will some of this happen??? Probably, but I won't get my hopes for everything on this list.



Goginho said:

Definitely like the idea of Luigi's Mansion asymmetric co-op. A 3D DK title would be perfect on the Wii U (and one on the 3DS too, making it all crisp, tight, colourful and charming and what not ). I also need a fresh new Star Fox game, one reminiscent to Star Fox 64. Sunshine 2 for the 3DS (spraying water in 3D, hello?), working around the two-analog requirement, like they did with Dark Moon. Some Wario games, a 2D and a 3D would be nice, as well as remastering Virtual Boy's Wario Land for the 3DS. Galaxy HD remake ..sure, why not, as long as it doesn't affect development time of any other games -new Mario games for that matter- and if it doesn't cost full price (make it both Galaxy 1 and 2 for 50). Rosalina should definitely have her own game, seeing as how she gained some credibility as of late. At least let us visit the Comet Observatory and space again in a Mario title soon. Toad Brigade puzzles from SM3DW as eShop title would be ideal. An exhilirating and amazing new IP arcade racer, able to compete against NFS and Gran Turismo. Waluigi needs a stand-alone game, preferably one that differs from the Mario, Luigi, and Wario games, having its own primary concept or unique game mechanic for that matter,
..and what is wrong with you people, where is your longing for creativity? Psht :/ saying no to the Mario Paint U idea, as well as Rosalina's Observatory. I'm ashamed -.- y'all prolly only want high-profile action games, pretty low if ya ask me
Personally, I hold nothing of the Metroid series, as I have no history with it, and thus I cannot say whether I really want a new Metroid game or not. Although it might be a helpful addition to the Nintendo library (seeing as how it is relatively desired, and it is Miyamoto's creation), it just doesn't appeal to me, so if a game does come out, I may give it a chance, which will determine if I'll give previous games a go or not.
So all in all, the more Marios, Luigis, Toads, Rosalinas, Zeldas, DKs, Star Fox, Warios, Waluigis...the better oh, and definitely MM 3D. Make it happen. That's my numero uno wish from this list. Go ahead and hate (if you even read this comment, and bother replying lol)!



PrincessEevee9 said:

The lack of a Pokémon console game on this list is silly. Instead of making another Metroid game that's unneeded Retro should continue working on revitalizing Donkey Kong, perhaps a true sequel to the Racing game. And no love for hoping they localize all those amazing JRPGs that have alluded us?



Doma said:

Nice feature, well done NL. Here's my response to all:

Metroid Prime IV (Wii U)
Surprisingly, i actually disagree. I believe the series has run its course. New IP (from Retro) or GTFO. Although, depending on the developer, i would want a new Metroid (just not interested prime again really). I put maybe.

Metroid Dread (3DS)
I have no idea why this hasn't happened yet...

F-Zero AGX (3DS)
That would be cool, i suppose. Would prefer a new game.

F-Zero UX (Wii U eShop)
Meh, i don't do eShop.

Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection (Wii U eShop)
HELL. NO! Mario rehashes (or just Mario in general) are among my LEAST wanted games ever atm. Give that IP a rest.

Kid Icarus: Fallen (Wii U)
Could be great. The controls prevented me from enjoying the 3ds game, so i shelved it early.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D (3DS)
Yeah, we all know this coming anyway. I've gotten bored of this series now tbh (didn't buy SW or ALBW yet), but i'll gladly take this since its the best 3d Zelda.

Mario & Luigi's Mansion (Wii U)
*(see my response to Galaxy HD)

Mario Paint (Wii U eShop)
Dunno. Mario's attachment would possibly put me off.

Animal Crossing: City Life (Wii U)
Irrelevant series to me nowadays. What seriously would this game do that warrants a new entry?.... Please stop rehashing this same thing repeatedly.

SNES Remix (Wii U eShop)
**(see my response to F-Zero UX)

Rosalina's Observatory (3DS eShop)
I may not care, but sure. Make a case for this character, beyond just shoehorning her into everything for the sake of it. She is nothing more than 'Peach's twin' to me right now.

Star Fox: Battle for Corneria (Wii U eShop & 3DS eShop)
This IP deserves more. 'Ambitious' and 'eShop title' can't be put in the same sentence.

Fire Emblem Anthology (3DS & Wii U)
HELL. YES! Give me all that goodness on the 3ds please.

Paper Mario: Origami (Wii U eShop)
Butchered series. Do not want anymore.

Apart from a few of those, Advance Wars on the 3ds need to happen, aswell. Cheers!



ningeek185 said:

Though I have to think that this wish list was a little bit far-fetched, I do like the idea of having a remix of SNES games. In my opinion, the SNES is the greatest for Nintendo classics. My fans include SMW, LTTP, SMRPG, All-Stars, Donkey Kong Country games, and a whole lot more.

Though I'm personally stuck with the SNES remix, I think the idea of making a package of Super Mario Galaxy games upgraded with Wii U style graphics and a touch of HD. Super Mario Galaxy is one of the best games I've ever played, and hearing that Nintendo isn't looking forward to making a third SMG would boost the sales of these two games. Rock on, Nintendo!



Fededx said:

I don't like the eShop releases, but Metroid Prime 4, Dread, LOZ MM 3D and SPECIALLY F-Zero AGX and Fire Emblem Anthology sound AMAZING! Would love all of those!



Sweet16 said:

I would most like for Nintendo to bring out Mother 4 but only with Shigesato Itoi at the helm. This is unlikely since, Itoi has said he would not make another one but stranger things have happened. However possibly even more than Mother 4, I would like to see Nintendo bring out Startropics 3.

Also, Majora's mask can't work on the 3DS because the save system (you have to play the game for a good while before you even CAN save) and three day time cycle is a terribly ill-fit for portable gaming and changing these elements would neuter much of the games uniqueness and tension. Why can't people see this?



NintyMan said:

The final poll is incredibly tough! Although I would buy most them, the vote for me was between Kid Icarus: Fallen and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, and I chose Kid Icarus. I'm a little surprised NL thought Kid Icarus would be a plausible announcement for this year, but there should be a Kid Icarus game for Wii U at some point, and it would look spectacular.



PikminWorld said:

I would want all of those haha! Though I feel Nintendo is building up to Super Mario Galaxy 3 than a HD collection what with all the themes of it in 3D World.



Mchl496 said:

My problem with continuations with The Metroid Prime trilogy is because its dragging along 3 video games worth of backstory. Drop the Prime part and just do a new Metroid game. It can still be by retro, but move on to new ideas and new concepts. For the 3ds Dread was supposedly rumored for a long time, I think its Metroid Dead now. Lets not start with pumping HD remakes. First Super Mario Galaxy had a side by side comparison to the new super Mario(on ign) and was shown to still look good. So you aren't getting a giant boost in terms of quality. As a fan of the F zero genre... They could make a retail game for 40 bucks because those games do not need to have mega worlds that take up gigs of data. I don't want a remake because if it doesn't sell then that means Nintendo blew their F Zero load. Kid Icarus should get a more traditional platformer. The last game was interesting but it was Japanese video game eye porn more then anything else. I think they could make a kid Icarus game in the vein of a 3rd person Metroid. Starfox is a given that it needs to be brought back. Luigi's mansion could use a proper Wii U sequel but you don't need to dump Mario into the name. Mario can join in but keep him second fiddle.



Kirk said:

Well there's definitely some great idea on that list.

Personally, I'd basically like to see them all.



Zach said:

Fantastic article. I look forward to the follow-up, Nintendo Games We'd Hate to See in 2014. My picks: Ice Climbers Prime, Yoshi's Cookie 3D, Balloon Fight U, Super Mario All-Stars Anniversary Edition Wii U Edition, Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon HD and Dr. Waluigi.



ToxieDogg said:

I'd be interested in eventually buying every single game on that list if they ever came to fruition. Some fantastic ideas there.




Mario AND Luigi's Mansion? Screw that. It's LUIGI'S Mansion. It's the green boy's thing, leave the fat man out of it.



gage_wolf said:

Wii U needs a surprise this year for sure, and it needs to be Metroid. Everything besides "X" and "Bayonetta 2" is pretty standard "every Nintendo system gets this iteration" category of game. As stoked as I am for Mario Kart and Smash they are both multiplayer focused. I would really like a new "deep" single player game from Nintendo this year that keeps me invested for more than an hour or so at a time (sorry Pikmin 3). Metroid needs to happen!!!



JadedGamer said:

I want these heavy hitting games on the 3ds like 3dland to be reinvented for the wiiu. With Nintendo more of the same isn't bad. This list looks awesome. And hope springs eternal. I do hope Luigi s mansion comes to wiiu. That only makes this year's line up better. Hoping this is the year of wiiu



larry_koopa said:

New Star Fox and new F-Zero for the Wii U please, and full-ledged retail releases too, not budget-sized versions with hardly any content. Nintendo has wonderful IPs that they're just sitting on, refusing to do anything with. Give Mario a rest for a couple of years and give something else a chance to shine. Excluding the 3D re-release, we have not gotten a good Star Fox game since 1997. Come on, Big N.

While I agree with most of the titles on this list, personally F-Zero and Star Fox are the only ones that I would buy day one.



TrueWiiMaster said:

While I love most of these ideas, I really don't want Mario invading Luigi's Mansion, or co-op corrupting Metroid. Both games thrive on being alone. In both Other M and Dark Moon, one common complaint was that, even though you're technically alone, communication with other characters negatively affected the atmosphere. I'm fine with multiplayer (as in Dark Moon, Metroid Prime Hunters, and Metroid Prime 2), or extra co-op missions, separate from the main campaign, but I want the meat of the games to remain solo. I also wouldn't want Paper Mario to become some random eshop game (not unlike the new Chibi Robo, which only makes me want a real Chibi Robo game). I want a real, full-fledged Paper Mario. And though I'd buy a Mario Galaxy HD Collection, I'd honestly prefer a Mario Sunshine HD remake.

That said, I'm looking forward to the surprises Nintendo has in store for this year. I hope there's another huge Nintendo Direct like last January.



James1993 said:

Thank you Nintendo Life staff for this post it was a nice surprise.
For me personally the no.1 announcement from Nintendo from this list , just has to be Snes Remix, the 16 - bit era and gaming in the 1990`s is forever the best decade in gaming for me. What a wonderful, beautiful and precious list of possible announcements from Nintendo this year or in the future. This list is gold and heavenly. I hope to see Nintendo boost the sales for the Nintendo Wii U, and of course wish Nintendo as much success as possible, with the Nintendo Wii U. Sony, Nintendo and Sega are kings of the gaming industry. I voted "definitely yes" for every title except Animal Crossing City life, simply because I have never even played any simulation game, although I would definitely buy and play Pilotwings and it`s series. So for Animal Crossing City Life I voted "maybe, I would need to know more first", I would say in person "maybe not but I would definitely play Pilotwings and it`s series", I would say in my case, for example if some one was to ask me would you buy............, if it was released? then of course as a loyal,faithful and die-hard Nintendo Fan my reply would be " yes, of course I would you don`t even have to ask me" in a good manner of course, without sounding impolite at all. What a marvelous list.



Therrus said:

I'd kill for Majora's Mask for the 3DS!
Nah not really but I'd love to have it and same with a Metroid for general more for the 3DS! Maybe Pokemon Z? =)



Kingface said:

These ideas are really good and I like the format, the voting options etc.

I'd definitely want an Mario RPG game for Wii U, either another Paper Mario game, something in the vain of the Mario & Luigi series, or both.

Another game I'd absolutely love is a Mario Golf game for the Wii U. I know one is happening for the 3DS and I'm sure it'll be great, but I remember Toadstool Tour looking absolutely incredible for its time as well as playing great as always. I'd love the multiple colours for characters to come back too.

Most of the ideas interest me but the only one that definitely doesn't interest me, despite how much I love the games and the Mario series in general, is the Galaxy HD collection. I just think it's completely unnecessary and the last thing they should be considering is doing HD versions of Wii games.



Beta said:

A new entry for Kid Icarus would be freakin' epic! 8D I would also love a sequel to The Wonderful 101, my game of last year right there. Also, having that Origami Mario on the Wii U would be sweet. I mean, imagine such an art-style with beautiful scenery, that would be great.



Joetherocker said:

I'd like a Star Fox game that plays like 64, but with all the enemies replaced with Star Fox Adventures discs.



JLMan said:

Personnally, I'd buy a Goldeneye remake on the 3DS. Or a Perfect Dark remake, with online and local play and enhanced graphics (just keep. However, Rare is working for Microsoft at the moment.



ricklongo said:

I'd really like to see a Luigi's Mansion for Wii U, but PLEASE keep Mario away from it (as a playable character, that is). Luigi has the exact character and demeanor needed for that series. Don't ruin it! (Plus, Mario could be given a break himself for a while anyway.)

I'd love a new F-Zero, but as a retail release, please.

Kid Icarus Wii U would be a day one buy for me, as would a new Fire Emblem in either console and a 2D Metroid (not a FPS person).

I'd really like to see a collect-a-thon revival. There are some indies trying to do just that (A Hat in Time and Lobodestroyo spring to mind), but it would be great if Nintendo itself jumped in.

And, well, never gonna happen, but I really want a new Earthbound. The VC release should at least make Nintendo higher-ups stop and think about it, no?



mystman12 said:

What? Where's Kirby Air Ride 2! Well, I sent an email for the follow up article, I sent it to general inquiries, is that right?



Emaan said:

I'd love to see F-Zero and Metroid on Wii U some day. I also would buy a Wii U eShop Mario Paint instantly, that would be amazing.



Gorlokk said:

In my opinion, F-Zero should stay on consoles, because the 3DS, especially with 3D on, will definitely NOT get a good framerate, and if there's on on Wii U, well, I'd hope Nintendo would advertise it more and give it a physical release.

Mario & Luigi's Mansion MIGHT be interesting if done right, but I can't help but wonder why one would take Luigi's only full fledged game and add in Mario.

Animal Crossing in HD with GamePad capabilities? That sounds amazing! I can't believe that there were so many people that voted "Nah" for that one, and yet more people voted "Yes" for a crappy snes mini game compilation.

Rosalina's Observatory... Rosalina's got enough fame at the moment. I would definitely NOT buy a game focused on her. She already got a spot in Smash, is that not enough?

Star Fox has potential, but I'd rather a full retail release.

Fire Emblem Anthology is 100% yes from me

Personally, if there's one game that I would absolutely LOVE for Nintendo to make, it'd probably be something EarthBound related, although, since Itoi seems to be done with those games, that's nothing more than a dream.



larry_koopa said:


Not at all. I'm not a huge fan of either of the Galaxy games. I find them more tedious than enjoyable. Give me the 3D Land/World design any day over Galaxy.



ULTRA-64 said:

@RCMADIAX I noticed that, would have been my number two choice behind a Wii u Luigi 's mansion game. It's weird they haunt revisited the WAVE RACE ip, even as a New 'sports resort' style mini game for Wii u, they always had the water physics looking soo good it seems an obvious fusion of old and new branding.



Spleetal said:

I've been dying to play a metroid game, I havent played any before and havent gotten around to getting one so a Metroid game on Wii U would be awesome. I would like Animal Crossing: "City Life" but they just released one for 3DS, If they had a way to have your character swtich between games whenever I'd be interested. Although if not I'd still like to play and focus on New Leaf for now



MrWalkieTalkie said:

I really want:

A new IP
A Kirby RPG
A Pokemon Fighting Game (like Tekken or Street Fighter)
Pokemon Snap U
Kid Icarus Uprising Sequel
An Excitebots for Wii U
Wario World U
Metroid 3D
Wario Land 3D
Wario Ware 3D
Starfox U
Chibi-Robo U
3D Donkey Kong game for Wii U
Super Mario Sunshine HD



unrandomsam said:

You could play F Zero AX officially. Just had to be pretty good at GX.

It is unfortunate the wheel that is supported by GX isn't that good.



GuSolarFlare said:

lol Mario & Luigi's Mansion, as if the man in green needed to lose the only game he doesn't share the spotlight with Mario(Super Luigi U and Dr.Luigi don't count, even IF Mario isn't there as I don't have a WiiU I don't know, they are Luigi versions of Mario games)



Funny_Moblin said:

I am almost sure Sakurai will make a Majora's Mask remake. HOWEVER---I am nervous as I type, because I don't want this to come out to the 3DS. I want it for the Wii U. Just watch the fan made trailer and you'll see what I mean.

The dark mood is better suited with better graphics. And the musical would be such good quality.



James1993 said:

I forgot to mention the Virtual Console services!. Nintendo could Super Mario World 2: Yoshi`s Island still be possibly released for any of the Nintendo Virtual Console services? will there be any more re-released titles for the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console? thank you very much Nintendo.



ToadFan said:

I like pretty much all of these except I think that Luigi's Mansion should be Luigi's own series and not have Mario in the mix. Nevertheless, I would love to see a Luigi's Mansion 3 on Wii U.



AdanVC said:

Seriously, I was crying while reading this article because I imagine all of this games in real life and knowing none of them are real is so sad omg . Nintendo has so MANY damn awesome franchises that practically covers all the best game genres. I don't understand why they have Starfox or F-Zero frozen for so many years... But I'm still have a little hope... a tiny bit of hope telling me that soon we would see some of those forgotten franchises alive.

What I consider it could be the most realistic game right now is a new 2D Side-Scrolling Metroid for 3DS just like Super Metroid or the ones on GBA but with 3DS graphics of course. I read months ago that when Nintendo release new hardware the first year or two are just to establish momentum by releasing all of their major franchises that sell a lot first (New Super Mario Bros Series, Zelda, Pokémon and 3D Mario) and once the console reaches a certain good amount of sales it's when they literally "take the liberty" to create games of those forgotten franchises and well, in the case of the 3DS, it's a pretty damn good established handheld console already so that's why I see higher the possibility to see a brand new Metroid there, a Majora's Mask remake and maybe, even a F-Zero game.



Mecha_Boo said:

Im all for a new Luigi's Mansion, but making it Mario & Luigi's Mansion? that idea makes me sick. thats basically turning it back into a mario game instead of luigi's only franchise to himself. please try again with the idea for Luigi's Mansion 3



Prof_Elvin_Gadd said:

I voted yes to all the games you mentioned, although some of the ideas behind them I disagree with. Namely adding Mario to LUIGI'S SERIES!!!! So much no. No. No. Also, if there is going to be an HD Star Fox for Wii U, it better be a full blown game. None of this nonsense multiplayer mess you mention . Multiplayer can and should be an extra in the game, no doubt, but just strictly multiplayer is a bad idea.



B3ND3R said:

Skies of Arcadia U (Or 3DS), Star Fox U (in the vein of 64, or even Assault), Fire Emblem U, Pokemon U (Stadium styled with the ability to transfer your character and pokemon from x and y? Or just a regular game.. Either sounds good), Sin and Punishment U, and F-zero UX are all on my dream game list



dumedum said:

The Mario and Luigi idea is terrible. You want to take Luigi's only franchise and actually have Mario join in busting ghosts. That's cruel and unnecessary.



Knux said:

I would buy most of those games. I think that All-Stars 2 (with Super Mario 64, Sunshine, and the Galaxy games) and a Rosalina spin-off as a platformer instead would be better ideas.

But I really think that realistically the only one that we will see this year is a Metroid game for the 3DS.



LittleIrves said:

I would buy almost all of those games. (Probably pass on Majora 3D, 'cause I just played it on Wii VC.) Paper Mario Origami makes a lot of sense, and origami is so hot right now! I loved Sticker Star and don't see why that game gets so much hate. Also: Metroid Dread. Please please become real, real soon.

The list just goes to show how much potential Nintendo IPs have in the future (and why new IP is less important than many think, since they have so much relatively untapped, familiar and popular characters already.)



bizcuthammer said:

I love the franchises shown, but i dont really want the next Paper Mario, Star Fox and F-Zero games to be $15 eshop experiences. Also, while they are my favorite games of all time, i dont want an HD remake of the Galaxy games even half as much as i want a sequel to them, whether its Galaxy 3 or Mario 64-2 or whatever. I'd still buy HD Galaxies, but i dont think we need that now with WiiU able to play the original games anyway.

Metroid Prime 4 needs to happen, but Retro will take 3 years to make it like always with their games, so i dont expect to hear about it for some time. It'll probably hit in late 2016 or so. Metroid Dread, on the other hand, needs to happen ASAP. With the 3DS' underwhelming 2014 lineup, this game would help tremendously.

Also, a co-op Luigi's Mansion game on WiiU would be a dream come true, especially if the two players could be in different areas of the mansion at once, and if they went back to the open exploration style of the first game instead of the mission structure of Dark Moon. One player using the GamePad screen while the other uses the tv. I'd buy that for sure.

Not sure how i'd feel about WiiU Animal Crossing. The online features would have to improve substantially and there would have to be some pretty compelling changes made to the series beyond just making an HD port of New Leaf like City Folk was to Wild World. Animal Crossing just seems to work better on handhelds anyway, like a lot of Nintendo's games do these days.



TwilightAngel said:

great list but i would love earthbound to make a return and metriod teaser ever came out the wiiu will sell like crazy.



unrandomsam said:

Actually I would quite like New Super Mario Bros 3 (If they take into account what they are saying about doing the same thing they did with Zelda to other franchises. Make it 60fps make sure it has the variety and length of Super Mario World and the level design and difficulty of Super Mario Bros 3.



SavoirFaire said:

I'd like them to take the smash brothers roster and turn it into a beat 'em up game, along the lines of those x-men or avengers 4 player beat 'em ups. I know we all like beating each other up in ssb, but it'd be fun to work together against a common for, and with all those franchises, there are plenty of foes!



James1993 said:

@Zach You wouldn`t "hate" to see another re-release of Super Mario all-Stars, you mean you wouldn`t want another re-release for Super Mario All-Stars for obvious reasons. Nintendo Wouldn`t see any need in re-releasing another anniversary version of Super Mario All-Stars anyway.Especially since the 30th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros series Will not be until 2015. "New Super Mario All-Stars" would be a great possible release.



vattodev said:

Great article, please tweet this to Nintendo of America after a few weeks of votes.



retro_player_22 said:

A new F-Zero for Wii U and/or 3DS would be awesome but both had to be physical title and both must not be port of one another otherwise I won't be buying it.



GalacticMario28 said:

I definitely support Majora's Mask 3D. Aside from that, I think I'd like to see a new IP, specifically an RPG. I like how the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series turned out, so I'd like the new series to take some inspiration from the battle systems in those games. I'm not a fan of RPGs where you can just button-mash your way to victory; I like more strategic battles.
Edit: I just thought of something else: a remake of Yoshi's Story with an additional difficulty level in which you have to earn a certain number of points from eating fruits in order to clear a stage. This would force players to be much more careful about which fruits they eat, making the game more of a challenge. I think this should be limited to an optional difficulty level, though, so those who really like the original game the way it is can still play the game the way they remember it.



LegendaryQ said:

A lot of interesting ideas. Not a big fan of the Paper Mario Origami idea, since my thought that the best thing Nintendo could do with that series is go back to the likes of TTYD or the original. Or heck, I'd even take another Super Paper Mario-style deal.



gloom said:

Does anyone remember that teaser for an upcoming Wii U pokemon game? It was at an X&Y event and it showed I think Blaziken and Lucario about to fight... I still wonder what that game could be or why we haven't heard to much about it since



miletich3 said:

Metroid Dread needs to be the follow up to Metroid Fusion. And MPIV... WTF?!

Compared to Paper Mario Origami, I suggest an HD remake of Paper Mario 64.



sagen said:

I think Metroid Dread should continue the story of the Metroid prime trilogy. I think the console trilogy should remain a trilogy.



Zero_Revolution said:

The majority of these games interest me, Nintendo really needs to get on these ideas for some new games. They'd earn so much money from me and other people...

For Mario and Luigi's Mansion, I feel like part of what makes Luigi's Mansion so great is that it is a game starring Luigi, rather than Mario taking over his spot. Yeah, there were some games starring him for Year of Luigi, but it was only for one year.



AJWolfTill said:

For the Luigi's mansion game it would be far better to have Peach, Daisy, Toad or Yoshi playable instead of Mario. Mario is all about jumping and is fearless the other characters are more flexible in personality. Also Galaxy HD would frustrate me, fantastic games but very recent and already stunning.
I could see a star fox game using the Uprising level structure.
Submitting my grand idea via contact form : D

I think F-Zero (and Maybe Star Fox.) would work great as a free-to-play experience on Wii U. It's obvious Nintendo has lost faith in that the series would sell, and much like Wii Sports Club if they used the pushed sleep-mode download most everyone with a Wii U would try it. And, if it's good (Unlike Wii Sports Club.) People would purchase the additional content. I'd prefer one of these two series over Steel Diver, And they could make worthwhile DLC for them. With F-Zero getting vehicle and race track packs, and Star Fox with mission packs. If they did it right and grabbed people's attention I see no reason why they couldn't make awesome retail entries in either series.



WingedSnagret said:

I think Pokemon Stadium/Pokemon Snap sequels should be in that list.

But in any case it'd be great if any of the concepts came to be for real. (I'd especially love Kid Icarus: Fallen).



TanookiTales said:

Rather than all of these eshop releases of games like Star Fox and Paper Mario, why not just make full fledged games? We would love a new Star Fox, and although the origami concept sounds interesting, I really would like a Paper Mario that is more like TTYD or the original. And really, as beautiful it would look, we do NOT need a re-release of the SMG games. It's just too recent. I would take a full fledged game from the "Super Mario Something" series over the galaxy games any day. We need to see some new ideas.



JaxonH said:

Who's the 1% that said they're not interested in any of those games? And are actually members of this website.... really lol? Let's be honest here- I'd buy every one of those games and come back begging for more.

Metroid Prime 4 will almost certainly happen. Or a spiritual successor. Either way, we're getting a Metroid on Wii U, so no worries there. And you already know a Metroid will be coming to 3DS. Might be Dread, might not. Either way, it's coming.

As much as I'd die to see a new F-Zero, I've accepted it's absence. Besides, FAST Racing Neo looks like it will easily fit the bill- surely that's the next-best thing. Besides, I have the AX Cup unlocked in F-Zero GX. Yeah, that's how I roll.

Galaxy HD Collection? Oh yeah. But if it never happens, that's fine. Galaxy 1 and 2 look pretty great when playing through the Wii U.

Kid Icarus game on Wii U? That's what's up. Dual analogue controls. This would actually be my most wanted game after Metroid and F-Zero. But we're getting a Metroid on Wii U and 3DS, and FAST will take the place of F-Zero. I don't think we'll get a Kid Icarus on Wii U though.

And as for the rest, these are all some really great ideas. I gotta hand it to the staff.



justinluey said:

I voted "Yeah, Definitely!" to every game on the list. Great list, and I'm sure we'll see a couple of them this year.



R-Moss said:

Fire Emblem: Awakening IS the WORST in the whole series. If they release the other games, people will see how bad Awakening is.



DerpSandwich said:

I think the list is really great except for Star Fox and Paper Mario. With so many disappointing releases for these IP's over the years, I think we need grand new experiences for each rather than eShop titles. Star Fox needs to be a graphically awesome action-packed shooter with incredible set pieces, and Paper Mario needs to be a content-rich RPG adventure like it used to be.



sketchturner said:

Metroid Dread would be my #1 choice if it were on the WiiU.
Also, as much as I love the Prime Trilogy, I'd much rather see a game in the style of Other M, just with some of the flaws addressed.



lacaras4 said:

Another thing I want to see is DLC for NES Remix, normally I'm not huge on DLC, but NES Remix is the perfect game for it.



BJWanlund said:

There isn't much I don't want to see. But an anthology of the NES / SNES Fire Emblem games we didn't get in the West? I'm SO there with bells on.



Pichubby said:

@Shiryu That sounds really good, actually. If they could somehow tie it in with another franchise (don't know how), it would be great.



FullbringIchigo said:

a Wii U Pokemon game, full blown RPG just like the handhelds

also a proper Star Fox game not a multiplayer game



kingston589 said:

I dont know if anyone has mentioned this but instead of mario in a new mansion game, lets have daisy, waluigi, nabbit, or E gad playable instead



MetroidMasher17 said:

I'd kill for any kind of new Metroid. Other M was released far too long ago and wasn't particularly spectacular.



Nik-Davies said:

I've never played a Metroid game or F-Zero game, as much as I really want to, so I'd definitely buy Metroid: Prime IV, Metroid: Dread, F-Zero AGX and F-Zero UX.

I also never got to experience the Super Mario Galaxy games due to insufficient funds, so I'd definitely buy HD ports of them.

I loved Kid Icarus: Uprising, so Kid Icarus: Fallen is another must buy.

I've never played The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask before and I've been loving all the Zelda games I've played recently, so bring it on.

I was a little disappointed with Luigi's Mansion 2 due to it's repetitiveness, but I think I would almost definitely give Mario & Luigi's Mansion a shot.

I have enjoyed New Art Academy on the 3DS, so I would consider Mario Paint, however, I would need more info.

I would definitely get Animal Crossing on the Wii U as I've got every one since Wild World. I just hope it wouldn't be as bland and boring as City Folk was.

I haven't picked up NES Remix, so I doubt I would pick up SNES Remix, so that's a pass from me.

I would need more information on Rosalina's Observatory, but maybe, if the price was right.

I've never experienced a Starfox game, so Starfox: Battle for Corneria is an absolute yes.

I loved Fire Emblem: Awakening and am very interested in the rest of the franchise. So I would definitely consider picking up the Fire Emblem: Anthology.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star was my first Paper Mario game, and that was so bad that it's really thrown my judgement on the series. I would consider Paper Mario: Origami, but I would need more info.

A brilliant list, if I'm being honest.



hYdeks said:

that list just showed basicly more of the same games Nintendo usually releases, I want a new IP from Nintendo, and I want it to be for the Mature gamer. Your good at family and kids games, now lets see if Nintendo can handle a more mature style of game...

So far, Monolith's X game is the only thing of big interest to me coming out this year.



Scissors said:

Yes to Luigi's Mansion 3, and a big no to Mario & Luigi's Mansion this is Luigi's series don't take that away from him.



seronja said:

this list is insanse well done! xD the only game's i'm not interested in here is mario paint, cause i'm not into art games & Mario & Luigi's mansion because i really didn't like luigi's mansion 2... also i would love to see donkey kong 64 3D, operation rainfall HD collection, metroid prime trilogy + other m HD collection & no more heroes HD collection



Ash_Anne said:

I would like to see a good platformer like Banjo Kazooie or Crash Bandicoot. I've been replaying those lately and I really miss good platformers. I would also buy a new Star Fox or Fire Emblem day one. I love both of those series.



Luffymcduck said:

F-Zero on WiiU just has to happen. GX is one of the best games ever and it needs a worthy sequel.



MeWario said:

What more could possibly be done with the Luigi's Mansion franchise? I loved Luigi's Mansion 2 but felt by the end of it that I was done with it. There's not much else they can do with it. I hope Nintendo lets it be the last Luigi's Mansion, atleast for another 10 years.



SecondServing said:

1: No more Zelda remakes
2: No more Mario games in general after MK8
3: Definitely a New Metroid game on Wii U
4: Definitely a New Starfox game on Wii U
5: I personally would love a full blown Kid Icarus game on Wii U
6:New IPs should be a priority
7: EarthBound sequel on any system would be AMAZING
8: Team up with Silicon Knights to do an Eternal Darkness 2
9: Get more mature older audience exclusives on Wii U



Doma said:

@hydeks Well, other than Metroid, F-Zero and Starfox, you’d be right. I do agree though - A new mature IP is required from them at this point (from Retro). Without that, i can't even begin to take that console seriously. Nintendo seem so set on just reproducing the same games over and over.

@enderboy221 Wow, that website is pure garbage. There's no credible source whatsoever... Plus, i'm sure the forecast was 9 mil (LOL), not 6.8.



sleepinglion said:

Hey, guys. Would you be willing to compose a list of Virtual Console titles you'd enjoy seeing this year? Some, like Pilotwings 64 and the original StarFox, have yet to see a VC release on any Nintendo system. We're still waiting for GBA and N64 support. And Gamecube titles. But at least the 3DS is tackling Genesis hits.



supadude20 said:

I would like Origami and Super mario galaxy most. I really like the idea of every thing being all paper and cute-sy (says the FPS gamer) and I didn't get to play much of the first mario game.



MasterGraveheart said:

Aw, c'mon, guys. Luigi's Mansion is Luigi's own series. At least call it "Luigi & Mario's Mansion."

I propose Pokémon Universe for the Wii U, which would have 'mon exclusive by region... in the real world, encouraging international trading.

Japan/Australia: Kanto/Johto
United States: Sinnoh/Unova
Europe: Hoenn/Kalos

Same map, same story, just different 'Mon to capture in-game.



allav866 said:

I would've voted yes on Paper Mario, but the concept provided for it is worse than Sticker Star's. I just want the original Paper Mario gameplay to return, with Star Points, levelling up, cooking, badges, and a plot as good as Thosand Year Door, or even Super Paper Mario.



Sweet16 said:

@Doma you've missed my point. Making the quick save feature more convenient will domesticate a game who's idiosyncrasies should be preserved.



Swiket said:

After naming Sticker Star the best 3DS game of 2012, NintendoLife seems to really like the idea of Paper Mario games that aren't RPGs...



MrCarptainer said:

I would honestly rather another Animal crossing for the 3DS, which the Animal Crossing series, in my opinion, is more suited to. Like the need to play anytime anywhere sorta thing.



Doma said:

@Sweet16 I don't think it would be so damaging.

Anyway, as a remake of a console game, people should expect to play it as one. Even if the save system isn't altered at all, it shouldn't really matter.



Williaint said:

@Doma Thanks - I'm stealing organizational system, or list. (I Actually, I agree with most):
Metroid Prime IV (Wii U)
I thought the series was finished... I can't decided which idea is worse, this or Majora's Mask 3D, or Rosalina's Observatory...
I think Retro could (should) be better used working on other things like:
Metroid Dread (3DS)
"I have no idea why this hasn't happened yet..." --Doma Neither do I! I even remember there being rumours about it!
F-Zero AGX (3DS)
An F-Zero 3DS game that would link to the Wii U would be quite Nifty.
F-Zero UX (Wii U eShop)
I think making it a simple eShop game seems sort of... well, a simplifying of the series... Custom cars, and a link with the tentative 3DS version may make it worth it...
Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection (Wii U eShop)
"HELL. NO!" --Doma The Only reason this would be acceptable would be if they released SMG3 along with it...
Kid Icarus: Fallen (Wii U)
Could be great. The controls prevented me from enjoying the 3ds game, so i shelved it early.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D (3DS)
Although it hasn't been officially confirmed, This probably will be coming. Since I don't like the game, I'd leave it; I don't care, either way.
Mario & Luigi's Mansion (Wii U)
Although I wouldn't mind a Mario Game where your weapons are E.Gad's Gadgets... It might be better to change the game so it isn't just some mansions.
Mario Paint (Wii U eShop)
I had a LOT of fun with the original Mario Paint. If it was similar to the forgotten Mario Artist, and allowed game modifications... that might be a seller.
Animal Crossing: City Life (Wii U)
As mentioned previously, Something new — Not City Life. I suppose it could be more "Sim" ish...
SNES Remix (Wii U eShop)
It just kind of seems like you are milking the series... I'm not really against it, though. I'd rather have a SNES Re-launch, with a lot of SNES games launched into the Wii U e-shop.
Rosalina's Observatory (3DS eShop)
It's not a great idea; might as well make Pokemon Safari Zone Pictures (Pokemon Snap U?)— It would sell better.
Star Fox: Battle for Corneria (Wii U eShop & 3DS eShop)
the description makes me think... "Star Fox Multiplayer + Dynasty warriors"
Fire Emblem Anthology (3DS & Wii U)
I'm not a fan of Anthologies... but, I haven't played many Fire Emblem games...
Paper Mario: Origami (Wii U eShop)
I liked the Paper Mario Series, it was pretty original. Now... it's much less so. The title isn't bad, suiting the series, but you may as well bring back the Wonderful 101, and make them paper. The idea just doesn't sound that fun. Almost as boring as Rosalina's Observatory.



Intrepid said:

No Advance Wars? We need a new game already; last one came out in 2008. I would prefer a Days of Ruin sequel to the regular series though, because I feel Black Hole invading for a 4th time is just unoriginal.

Paper Mario: Origami seems like the next logical step for a series based on paper, but with origami instead of flat characters, the game may as well just be a non-Paper Mario 3D platformer to begin with.



16bitdave said:

A lot of these would be great. For some odd reason I want a new Mario Golf game. I love the GBA version.



May_Nyan said:

Why are so many things that would be retail games put as eshop games on this list.
That annoyed me.



Webby-sama said:

Don't want to go through and do an entry for everything but:

Yes to new Star Fox, anything Rosalina, FE Anthology, and Majora's Mask 3D just because I like having all these digital LoZ games on my LoZ XL.

No to Mario in Luigi's mansions, Galaxy remakes or remasters or redoings of any kind, and a lot of the thought that going eShop tier instead of retail tier would be better.

Indifference to Metroid and F-Zero and Animal Crossing. I'd play F-Zero but I've never been big on Metroid and Animal Crossing just is not for me. Also to Mario Paint and SNES remix.

Aside from that though, Virtual Console expansion on the 3DS (add SNES and GBA games please) and Wii U would be great. Would like to see something on a new Advance Wars as well. Seems a bit too obvious to say new titles not sequels or remakes or whatever would be great. Maybe a game where a person goes around doing what is considered necessary to solve a particular problem that affects some group of people.



Williaint said:

@Intrepid I would like to see a new Advance Wars game, as well. They have been kinda getting a bit Over the top with powers... I don't think they need to expand on those. A larger game would be awesome, and an option for online play would be excellent. The Wii U could be a great Platform for an advance Wars Game. Having both 3DS and Wii U versions would be even better.



Johnny12 said:

i voted for Rosalinas observatory because ill want Nintendo to make more games with Rosalina in it. Done.....



IsawYoshi said:

Personally after seeing that fan made youtube trailer for Majoras Mask HD the idea of a 3ds remake ain't tempting anymore.



GearsOfWarU said:

Speaking only for Wii U the games I want to see the most in 2014/2015 are .................... Kid Icarus U , Metroid U , Star Fox U & Luigi Mansion U are the Nintendo Games I want to play !!!! Brand New HD Adventures on my Nintendo Wii U console .... I would also love a New Castlevania Wii U & Ghost N Goblins Wii U from Konami & Capcom respectively!!!



LastLife said:

This list is amazing. I would absolutely love to see every single one of these titles. Personally, I would love to see a new Metroid Prime Hunters game the most. I had a blast with the original on DS, and the unique playable characters made it one of the most enjoyable FPS online multiplayer games I've ever played, on any system. I really think they could make a best-seller if they made a new entry to the series on 3DS (or even Wii U).

Also, Mario Paint was one of the most influential video games of my childhood. I remember being excited to come home and spend hours painting, making music, and making my own animations on the SNES with the little mouse pad. With all these touch screen systems Nintendo has had success with, I'm amazed that Mario Paint hasn't made a huge comeback already.



unrandomsam said:

Something totally different. (Luigi's Mansion / Animal Crossing) that is the last time they did anything that wasn't just an improved version of something that existed that I was bothered for.



boynerdrambling said:

Please, no more ports or remakes. New games from long dorminant series and new ips need to come first. I can see the follwing getting announced eventually for the wii u :
New metroid that wont be a prime game
Paper mario
Pokemon stadium.
And id love to see new entries on the kid icarus, golden sun, fire emblem, star fox and f zero games as well, but i doubt the last two are coming any time soon



ultimate321 said:

Aw man i was hoping you guys would have included paper luigi. That was such a missed opportunity for the year of luigi. Ever since luigi told me hisnstory in thousand year door ive been wanting a paper luigi game damnit!Luigi fans unite!



mamp said:

Will ideas only be taken if they're posted right here or do we have to contact you? Anyways a lot of great choices personally I want Metroid Prime just cuz Metroid is my favorite nintendo series, also if it had an amazing online multiplayer that'd be amazing.



Senate_Guard said:

Man, so many great possibilities!

I hope to see even a few of these come to be.

My top 5 on this list would be:

-Metroid Prime 4 (would love to see the Prime saga continue, as its my favorite game trilogy of all time! With Prime 3 being my favorite game of all time!)

-Metroid Dread (A 2D entry has been long overdue. It'd be great to see what Samus is up to after Fusion's events all these years later!)

-Star Fox: Battle For Corneria (although I don't know about it being strictly dog-fighting, I like substance.)

-F-Zero UX (I'd personally prefer playing an epic racing title in full HD, than on a small screen.)

-Mario & Luigi's Mansion (I could see it being be a great co-op focused sequel. Plus we wouldn't have to wait another decade for Luigi to go ghost-hunting once again!)



TheRealThanos said:

Can't believe Majora's Mask trumps F-Zero UX. What are these people smoking? Majora's Mask wasn't that good.
I have a few doubts about the validity of the votes as well. Most of the answers were "Yeah! Definitely" and I don't know if that is because of the software drought, fanboyism or actual, objective choices...
Also, why isn't Excite Truck U on this list? Talk about a great arcade racer...
And don't even get me started on 1080° U...



Nico07 said:

I would seriously purchase all of these... except maybe Animal Crossing. My bank account wouldn't like it but with what has been announced and even if a quarter of these came about I would buy them. Even Mario Paint U would be a promising nostalgia trip. I loved it back on the SNES with it's Paint game and fun mini-games with musical elements as well, it was a blast. I just can't understand why Majora's Mask 3D hasn't been released, it just seems logical.



Onelife1luv1kng said:

I'd very much prefer Nintendo to please stop making and reselling old school 80/90 retro games, its call next generation for a reason so make next generation games its that the pro controller more on games, not everyone likes the gamepad...feels like a DS XXXXL instead of a console, Wii u is destroying itself that's why hour fan base is losing to Sony and Microsoft with these poor donkey indie titles that we are played and completed 20 years ago



FJOJR said:

I'd love Mario Party Anthology (eshop Wii U & 3DS) in which you can play any board, mini game & character from the tons of MP games remastered in HD/3D. Could be free to play with users purchasing boards & minigames.



Nico07 said:

@TheRealThanos Majora's Mask was good, but the Wii U and 3DS could definitely use a F-Zero or Star Fox entry (yes, I know the 3DS had Star Fox 64). But it has been since the Gamecube that either franchise has been touched, which is a shame.



LztheQuack said:

@Onelife1luv1kng Well I'd like to see the PS4 and XBO do more than repeat the last generation. Give me an example of a game that's not a big shooter, open RPG, or even a sequel for that matter



tripunktoj said:

I am unsure, maybe even reluctant, to see download-only entries on old classic Nintendo series, that's the main reason I voted "maybe" on great ideas like F-Zero UX, Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection, Rosalina's Observatory, StarFox: Battle for Corneria and Paper Mario: Origami (and the reason why it was easy for me to pick Metroid Prime IV as the best, if they were all full retail releases Id have trouble picking between F-Zero UX and StarFox: Battle for Corneria). Even if they were relatively new Nintendo series like SNES Remix, Id prefer to wait a little over a year and get it for free as a club.nintendo reward, or if Im lucky get a retail release of the game (Im looking at you Wii Sports Club). The only big and definitive No, was Animal Crossing: City Life, I just don't like feeling obliged to play daily or at determined times, and the practical impossibility to complete 100% a game.



Skyfox2000 said:

Metroid Prime IV & Dread - Sure ill buy it haven't played one since the Hunters Demo on DS.
F-Zero UGX& AX- Never Played But I will buy it.
Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection- Yes We Need This Collection Remastered in 1080p, A Luigi Storyline, Wii U Pro Controller Support, Online Co-op, DLC Galaxies Would Make Me Very Happy.
Kid Icarus Fallen- Yeah But Touch Controls Should be a option, and Online Multiplayer like in Uprising.
Majoras Mask 3D- YES!!! It Wouldn't Take Long To Devlop This Considering Wind Waker HD Just Took 6 Months. And a 2DS BUNDLE to give me a reason to buy a 2DS.
Mario&Luigi's Mansion- No I would just want a Simple Port of Dark Moon and a eShop release of Luigi's Mansion We Do Not Need Mario in this Game for Co-op Maybe Blue Toad or if were lucky Nabbit.
Mario Paint- Sure release it for them Miiverse Artists.
Animal Crossing City Life- I Need To experience a Animal Crossing Title Didn't Get To Play New Leaf.
SNES Remix- I Still Have NES Remix to Pick Up Word of Advice Nintendo if You release this Lower the Price from $6:99-8:99.
Rosalina's Observatory: No Not For Me Not interested in an Educational Game Not Into it But it Should be a Nintendog Style Game Where you Play With a Luma.
Fire Emblem Anthology- Havent Played Fire Emblem But I would pick up a Antology
Paper Mario Origami- Yes We Need a Paper Mario Game Like The Thousand Year Door Not Like Super Paper Mario Where it's a Platformer or Sticker Star Witch Gets Boring For Me After World 2. Just Think of How Pretty it Would Look



unrandomsam said:

@TheRealThanos I would rather have Excite Truck than Mario Kart (Unlike most). Incidently Fzero GX and All Stars Racing Transformed I both like much more. (Both Sega).



TheRealThanos said:

@unrandomsam Maybe we should wait and see until it's actually released, unless you REALLY don't like the series. And ehm... skipped the whole boob subject under the other article, aye?



Mr-X9000 said:

personally i would kill to see a sequel or reamake of mach rider for the wii u and 3ds with gta style open world and stuff!!
and a remake of mario is missing and marios time machine that ARE NOT EDUCATIONAL!!!
are any games on this list real?



Zodiak13 said:

@Skyfox2000 Yeah, but than there will be no chance of fullfillment, just dissapointment. At least these titles have a smigen of a chance.



Onelife1luv1kng said:

@DarkwingLz man I own all 3 systems and I have all exclusive titles for each, my only problem is this I know the Wii u is a far better system(my opinion) it brings to the table what the Xbox and ps4 can't, yes it lacks multiplayer but honestly the Wii u just has so much potential to be a better system I just which it would deliever.... ps4 and Xbox 1 are turning into strickly MMO online games and movies I don't enjoy either system better then the Wii u andi I'm a hardcore gamer, god of war/ gears of war/ uncharted, etc been there done that its getting, most of those system eexclusive get boring...and yet I'm still after a year enjoying the Wii u



Onelife1luv1kng said:

I'm ready for the new Zelda U or whatever their going to name it, I'm ready for a new Kirby, I'm ready for a new metriod, but more importantly I'm ready for them all to run 1080p and be an actual next gen looking title



Onelife1luv1kng said:

@Skyfox2000 yeah it does, I totally agree...bit at the same time all gamers are different, I didn't buy my Wii u to play games that I completed 10/15 years ago, I just think its extremely easy to port retro games to any system with that being said after the 2 minute port over they should actually put in more efforts and give the Wii u fans what it deserve- 1080p next gen gaming indies/ arcade productions



unrandomsam said:

@Onelife1luv1kng What is hardcore (It used to mean a level of dedicated I would never have. i.e already playing Monster Hunter IV as an import and already knows more about it than exists on the internet regardless of the problems with not being able to understand the text. Owns all consoles Jap and one other region. Anything you could ever need to know they already know it). One credit Arcade games that most people couldn't finish with unlimited credits.



QuickSilver88 said:

@AtlanteanMan I like your list more than the OPs......

Yes yes and yes to Advance wars on WiiU but I would like it on 3DS as well with game save share form campaign and then cross play wifi multiplayer. of my faorite series but mostly been on Sony other than the DS strategy game....still nothing meaningful since ps2 era.....i would take a new game in any system.

Sega baffles me with their overall decisions...they have just bailed on so many great franchises.....Skies of Arcadia 2 would be awesome. Shenmue was the model for sandbox adventure games and had a pretty solid fighting system. The would need to do either a 1/2 HD remake or do a mini movie to get most players up to date on the story.

While making the rpg wish list how about Tales of Symph HD remake comes to WiIU as afterall both games were Nintendo system developed and I another big wish is Baten Katos III as a card battling rpg using gamepad would be awesome.



Minotaurgamer said:

Any Metroid without Sakamoto's "maternal instinct" stuff will be welcomed. Keep that creep out of it.
I doubt Animal crossing will go to consoles. It has proven that it works better on portables, just like pokemon.
A Paint Mario U sounds useselss with the art academy app in there.
I have yet to understand the fascination fanboys have with Majora's mask. It's pretty much the black sheep of the zelda games. Not, Zelda 2 it isn't. People actuyally cared about that game but nobody did with MM. It's completly anti-zelda and has an annoying time-based gameplay that hindered what made zelda great.
Most of the games you mention, I know they are made up but, seriouslu, they sound way to dumb to even consider them (Paper mario origami? wth?).



123akis said:

all these games would be AWESOME!! but... here's a list of games i either don't want or not sure about it:

  • Super mario galaxy HD collection - would be nice but it's only been since 2010 since it's been released (2) don't want a remake yet
  • Mario paint - we've already got a drawing application which is art academy
  • Fire emblem - I don't like fire emblem awakening demo very much so i probably won't like this


yoshi5852 said:

HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Manaphy2007 said:

i wanna see a remake of all three mother games for 3ds and to be released worldwide. also an hd remake of the baten kaitos 1+2, eternal darkness and DK 64

Either One:

  • Fortune Street Promoted

Franklin said:

Great job, Nintendo should take a look at this article.

But I'd like to add Advance Wars!



SphericalCrusher said:

Great read! Very interesting game ideas! (Pass this onto Nintendo )

Metroid Prime 4 and Majora's Mask 3D are my top two, but I think I would buy almost every single one of those without even a second glance.



Mascarpino said:

I think Prime IV, Metroid Dread, Kid Icarus: Fallen, and Majora's Mask 3D would be the best that I'd definitely get. All of them sound like amazing games.

Also, I want Miyamoto's new franchise this year. I can't wait!!!



steamhare said:

I was just thinking how much I enjoyed the Metroid Prime series today (the music, specifically), and the release of a worthy sequel would be stellar.



NightmareXIV said:

I'm tired of remakes meant to fill time I want to see more Wii U Zelda. Although I would buy Majora's mask 3D, and I'm kind of skeptical of The idea of Mario with his sticky gloved paws all over Luigi's mansion a franchise that I hold to higher standards than what typical Mario games offer, and I would definatelly get a Kid Icarus game.



SnackBox said:

I think personally, when Nintendo has more time they would do a Wii U remake of Majora's Mask instead of the 3DS. It could be done very well and nobody wants to be pushed for time when you're half way through a dungeon and your 3DS starts blinking red...and you're on a road trip.



marakassi said:

Mario & Luigi's Mansion! (Wii U)
Haunted mansion, co-op, HD, Gamepad - Just brilliant!



the_beaver said:

I think there are some series that should stay in handhelds and nobody would complain (Animal Crossing, Pokemon, Kirby, Yoshi,...). WiiU needs more HUGE projects, like X or FE x SMT. And there are some series that would rather be released on WiiU, like Metroid (although a 2D entry would fit in the 3DS), F-Zero, Wave Race/1080 or Starfox. Also a damn new IP would be awesome as well, a harcore-targeted one please.
Therefore, I would see gladly happening a new Metroid (not neccesary a Prime sequel), Starfox, F-Zero, Kid Icarus, and Paper Mario (more like TTYD) entries, and neither in e-shop, if possible.
With this and the new Zelda (TP style, please!), I'd be happy with Nintendo for a long time
Btw, as far as 3rd parties are concerned, I'd seriously love to see some sequels in WiiU as well, and it's not totally insane, I guess: The Last Story 2 (this is EXACTLY what the WiiU needs), Little King Story 2, Zombi U 2, and Red Steel 3 (yes, I enjoyed the second part, I see big potential there). If we can dream...
Great list, by the way! Although I can't share some ideas XD, like the Mario's Mansion one, Galaxy HD, or too many e-shop releases...

Metroid IV en F-Zero UX!
Mario & Luigi's mansion sounds great too. Loved Luigi's mansion on GC and i'm going to buy LM2 on 3DS.



Shambo said:

Less eshop-only, more retail! As for a next Luigi's Mansion: I think it should remain Luigi's own series, but be turned into a ghost town or something. But whatever happens, I have quite some faith in Nintendo. If some of their larger franchises at the very least get an announcement this year, LoZ MM gets its 3DS remake, and they manage to pleasantly surprise me a couple of times (and all announced Wii U and 3DS games get released), it'll be yet another great year!



Nintygek said:

The official Line-up for WiiU an 3DS is so exciting that my interest in a PS4/XboxOne is dying quickly. If they would ad a couple of the above mentioned games then WiiU would have the better games. Nintendo has enough games to keep me happy all year long!



luke88 said:

Okay guys and girls, who are the 1% that voted "I don't like any of them." Confess and explain yourselves.



BAGBOY said:

I don't know why the hell Nintendo keeps ignoring metroid, f-zero, star fox, mother, ice climbers, among other ips. I love mario and zelda, but it would be awesome if they announced something related to those franchises, not everything has to be related with the italian plumber or the hylian warrior; well, at least they revived donkey kong and kid icarus, IT'S SOMETHING.



BAGBOY said:

@Shambo I agree, mario is the star of several games, let luigi have his own series, or at least rename it LUIGI AND MARIO'S MANSION, since the man in green is the star.



luke88 said:

@Skyfox2000 Yes I'd like to see a third party list too please Nintendo life, please include a sequel to gta chinatown wars, of some sort, for 3DS. That announcement could really help maintain momentum.



TreesenHauser said:

Every game on this list is potentially a great idea. With that being said, I think I would immediately chuck my wallet at my screen if a new Star Fox game gets announced for Wii U. I've been waiting for a new Star Fox game since Assault for GameCube. Throw us a new Star Fox title for Wii U, and maybe give us a timed release of Star Fox 64 on the Wii U Virtual Console, and watch the money trickle in.



MetalKingShield said:

A big "Yes" from me to all the Metroid, Zelda and F-Zero ones, especially Metroid Dread. The 3DS needs a 2D Metroid - it's been too long since Fusion and Zero Mission.



WaveGhoul said:

I'd 'yeah' everything except Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem. Also, the lack of Punch-Out!! is truly disturbing.

Oh, and the next Luigi's Mansion on Wii U in 3rd or first person using the wii remote plus/pointer controls as the vacume would be amazing I wasn't the biggest fan of Luigi's Mansion 2, i thought it was pretty decent, but extremely tedious and lacking in challenge.



atomicjuicer said:

The only thing missing from Metroid other m was isolation.
Everything else was cool.

I do not want some angry donkey military "bounty hunting" murderer with gross/super violent themes.

Keep it as an exploration game and don't get bogged down in Samus herself. Make it about the worlds she visits and invest everything in the environments not the story. The gamer makes their own story.
Please watch the profanity — TBD



atomicjuicer said:

I want Metroid but I don't want a super dark dread game.

The isolation is the gamers chance to meditate alone. Not kill everything that moves and be constantly under attack by bad guys.



micPL said:

Nice list, but I will add Sin and Punishment 3, new Ogre Battle game, new 1080, Wave Race and Excite are also welcome



Yasume said:

I like how they (aside from Animal Crossing Wii U) all have 0% chance of seeing a 2014 release, if ever. Face the truth or not, but 2014 is going to be a lackluster year for Nintendo.



Jazzer94 said:

Yeah not really into your ideas for F-Zero and StarFox I would prefer physical full games then hollow shell e-shop games with dlc to pad out the package, Paper Mario should go back to the traditional formula (where battles actually mattered I'm looking at you PMSS) the rest were fine.
edit: does SMG 1 & 2 really need HD remakes when copies can be brought very easily for very little plus the games still look fine, I would only be okay with this if both were bundled for 30-40 pounds I don't want Nintendo to become to dependent on remakes.



DRL said:

Thank you for mentioning StarTropics, @Sweet16. There's little that I want more than to see that series make a comeback. So many interesting possibilities for a rebirth on the 3DS or Wii U.



xwolf7 said:

Rather than Metroid Prime 4, I prefer the main timeline series I mean I want to see Metroid 5 for the Wii U.



Ben_Rage_V2 said:

I honestly think Animal Crossing Wii U would sell better than any of the games mentioned on the list. With an emphasis on social features it could be the killer app the Wii U needs. As long as Nintendo builds the game from the ground up, or at the very least add enough new features to make it distinctive from its 3DS cousin, I think it would be very successful. And I wouldn't mind more HD remakes either. Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Skyward Sword, Xenoblade Chronicles, heck I wouldn't mind a porting of the Resident Evil 4 HD with the option for Wiimote and Nunchuck, which is still the best way to play that game.

Some of the other games on the list I don't want to see until Wii U is in better shape. Metroid and F-Zero would be wonderful, but those games are not traditionally games that sell. Although Luigi's Mansion Wii U seems like a no-brainer to me. Whether the games announced are on the list or not, I look forward to all the amazing content of 2014. Nintendo platforms are still my prefered way to play video games.



Ben_Rage_V2 said:

@Jowy you are a genius. I would buy that hd pack in a second. Submit your application to Nintendo right now, because I want you working there. HD Remaster pack of Illusions of TIme, Terrigima and Soul Blazer? Brilliant I say.



New_3DaSh_XL said:

Don't mind the fact it's called the Metroid Prime Trilogy.

Also, that Kid Icarus: Fallen name, that was so completely original.



Gerbwmu said:

Games I'd like to see in 2014 (none of which will happen) New Tecmo Bowl U, Mario Golf U, New Turok, New Time Splitters, No More Hero's 3, New Golden Sun, NES Conflict on VC, SNES Ken Griffey Jr Baseball on VC, Eternal Darkness HD remake, a Civilization ype game for U and 3DS, the original Tetris on VC



Gerbwmu said:

@Yasume - there is no truth in your stating an opinion....from my perspective, Nintendo is going to have a great year. Mario Kart, Project C.A.R.S. Boyonette 2, & Lego Movie. Not too mention possibly "X", & FE vs SMT. Also I'm interested in Watch Dogs, Solar Pier, Fast Racing Neo & the possibility of GC and N64 gems making their way to the VC. So Maybe lackluster for you.....but not enough time to enjoy it all for me.



TheRealThanos said:


"Also, the lack of Punch-Out!! is truly disturbing. "

Hardly. It already had a remake on Wii, and it was actually quite an entertaining game. But games that didn't appear on Wii need to have a go now, and F-Zero, Star Fox, Wave Race and 1080° are but a few that really do need a new game.
@Gerbwmu That would be 'Bayonetta 2' and 'Pier Solar', my friend.



JuanitoShet said:

I'm in favor of ALL of these concepts. Particularly Metroid Prime 4 (though I don't own a Wii U and have only played part of the original Prime), Fire Emblem: Anthology (since I've never played a Fire Emblem title, though I'm keeping awakening in my 3DS wish list and getting it somewhere down the line), and F-Zero AGX (since my life has much lacked F-Zero goodness; I can't seem to find 'em used in my swapmeet trips.)

Also, that Rosalina mini-game sounds interesting, as does... I'd be ranting even more if I kept going, so I'll just say I like all of these ideas. Some more than others, but all regardless.



Mandalore said:

A remake of a 14 year old game in more demand than almost everything other than Metroid Prime 4? No wonder series like F-Zero and Star Fox are pretty much dead. :/

An eShop F-Zero is a nice idea, gives fans the new game they're desperate for without requiring a huge development budget. And why not throw in some NFC figurines for each ship too, allow extra customisation like Pokemon Rumble U.



Nintendo_Ninja said:

Great list. The only game I definitely wouldn't buy is Super Mario Galaxy HD collection, because I already have both for Wii. Also, games like Paper Mario Origami would have to be actual games, not small E-Shop games. I have nothing against the E-shop, but every one of these games could be bigger and better than a small E-shop game. And the next Animal Crossing would need a better name.



Zero_Revolution said:

With the Galaxy HD Collection, why not combine the two games into one? Galaxy 2 felt basically like DLC to the original, almost as though they were one game before. They could just use one hub world and be able to access the Galaxies from both games. (in a different order so it's from easiest to hardest with levels from both games being in only one)



TheRealThanos said:

@Zero_Revolution WAY too soon for a Mario Galaxy HD collection. Just play the originals on your Wii U. Makes them look slightly prettier as well. Remakes should be reserved for older games from older systems, such as Dreamcast remakes on Xbox 360 recently. Case in point: although it was a good remake in the end, some might say that even Wind Waker was a bit too soon. Then again, supposedly it was sort of a director's cut...



aaronsullivan said:

I want Metroid Dread more than Prime because it's time for another more sidescroller oriented Metroid. Still, I want both.

Also, Kid Icarus needs a boost. That property has great potential and it feels like a new IP not just a classic reborn. Nintendo should capitalize on it. Sadly, It missed the prime time of 3DS. Maybe SSB will get him some attention back on it again. Wii U version would be great of course.

Want to discuss much longer, but no time...



NightmareXIV said:

I think Animal Crossing works best on handhelds, and I really want them to do harder games something to give me a challenge. i'm not talking ridiculous impossible challenge, but something to make me feel like I achieved something in the end.



TheMagus said:

What we really need is another real Paper Mario RPG game. Seriously, we do not need another game like Sticker Star that pretends to be paper mario but removes all of the great RPG elements!



Ben_Rage_V2 said:

@Jowy Yeah, it was a genuine response. Too bad we live in a world where compliments are construed as sarcasm, but I can't blame you. The trolls make it difficult (but not impossible) to have a civilized discussion. I happen to be a huge fan of the SNES era of RPG's and just you mentioning those games sent a wave of nostalgia through me.



BlackStar9000 said:

@baba_944 That game was an abortion to videogames and the beginning of terrible Sonic Games with Sonic 06 being the Worst Sonic game EVER! I like generations and colors a lot though



ZettaToad said:

I wouldn't want another overly gimmicky Paper Mario, like the suggested Origami might turn out to be, but an old-fashioned Paper Mario game, with partners, badges, and a good story. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door came at in 2004; I think we're due for another normal Paper Mario.



BAGBOY said:

@R-Moss I played path of radiance and radiant dawn, which were mediocre at best in gameplay terms, also shadow dragon was a piece of crap, so awakening being the worst ever? I simply laugh at your comment.



baba_944 said:

I personally love the game. Here how's the 3D games go for me:

"Sonic Adventure" A fantastic game with an amazing Chao Garden, open world hubs, story line, and game play.

"Sonic Adventure 2" The game play is terrible. I don't see the praise. Once I heard that there was a sequel I thought it had improved on "Sonic Adventure" by adding more animals for Chao, more hub worlds, and more characters. They did 1/3 right. I love the music and story, it just the game play I can't stand.

"Sonic Heroes": I loved the game. The theme songs for the characters is awesome, sans one ("Team Dark") and some cheesy ("Team "Sonic"). I personally have no troubles with the game play except for lousy controls (I have it on "Playstation 2" yet I don't get glitches that you people say you get). And the background music; especially "Frog Forest".

"Shadow The Hedgehog": I love the branching story lines and amazing characters and plot twists throughout the game. I have yet to beat it so don't spoil it for me.

"Sonic Unleashed" ("Playstation 2"): I usually hate beat-em-up's, not really my thing, but for this game I'll make an exception. The night stages are fantastic, yet slow, but Sonic did get his anger out at night from Robotnik. The day time stages put Sonic into a relaxation and carefree mode.

I haven't played "Sonic Generations" or "Sonic Colors", but "Sonic Monopoly" spoiled "Sonic Generations" for me by revealing the final villain's boss name.



KingMike said:

Fire Emblem:
Shadow Dragon was a remake of the first Fire Emblem. There was also a DS remake of Mystery of the Emblem (FE3), but it only got released in Japan because Nintendo decided to effectively retire the DS early.
I'd like to see Fire Emblem Gaiden (FE2), if only to see what a game similar to Shining Force would be (some say Shining Force copied FEG, but they were actually released only a week apart in Japan).



FilmerNgameR said:

LOL I just want Sonic Adventure 3 and Shadow the Hedgehog 2 I know their not Nintendo games but the gameplay in Sonic Generations really proved to me that Sonic Team has the potential to make THE PERFECT MODERN SONIC GAME with a good story too.



jesao said:

Really enjoyed reading through that - some great ideas in there. With a lineup like that in 2014 I think we'd see the Wii U / 3DS comfortably ahead of all rivals (well, ok, the 3DS is anyway)



plunkettmonster said:

Wow the last question asking which game I wanted to most see released was a hard choice, most of the ones on the list I want to see come to life. After careful consideration I would have to say Metroid IV for the Wii U would have me running to the store the fast to pick up. Great list though Nintendo Life.



alLabouTandroiD said:

The only ones where i voted "Yeah, Definitely!" are Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection and Fire Emblem Anthology.
I really loved the Galaxy games so playing them again with a fresh coat of paint would be nice. If nothing else is added i can't see me paying more than 25€ for such a release though, so that one might have to wait quite a bit if it gets released.
The Fire Emblem games I'd mostly buy to support the localisation of more Japanese games. And if they'd go the remake route they'd have most of the work done already work since, well ... Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

I don't wanna give Ninty a free ride with these other games since there's always something that can go wrong. So yes, i have to know they really are good before i'd consider buying 'em.
That said Metroid Dread and a Wii U Kid Icarus game that expands on Uprising and also adds Wiimote + Nunchuck controls sound beyond epic.
Majora's Mask 3D could get me with a mode thast gets rid of the time-limit since that's the thing that always made me quit the game early on so far.
It's the question if Mario & Luigi's Mansion would work since these games draw much of their appeal from the isolation. I could see an asynchronuos game where two players are mandatory, but i don't think that would be much of a wise business decision.
Star Fox: Battle for Corneria is a great idea, but i'm not sure how many of us Nintendians would be interested in a multiplayer-only title.
And Paper Mario: Origami would be a huge risk. I think fans of that series are yearning for a return to something as close to the The Thousand Year's Door as possible. If now after the very lukewarmly received Super Paper Mario and Sticker Star you've got another game that doesn't really wow people you could very well destroy that series for years to come.
Your idea for F-Zero UX sounds good though. If you appeal to the enthusiasts first and then go all out with a full release for the general public you might get all of them to have the same tracks. I'd really hate if online players were seperated by how able or willing they are to purchase DLC.



AlexSora89 said:

The best thing would be a "Super Mario Galaxy 1+2 = 3D" for the 3DS. Just hire the DKCR3D guys and they can cram everything into the cartridge!



AlbertoC said:

Rosalina's Observatory... Interesting concept, an AR planetarium. Sadly, it would need better hardware, given that the 3DS cameras are low resolution and have very low light sensibility.

@AlexSora89 "Super Mario Galaxy 1+2 = 3D" for the 3DS.
Wowzers... Does that mean that... Half life 3 is confirmed? XD



KnightOfNothing said:

@R-Moss Is saying some blasphemous things right now. Awakening was bad? Pfft, please. 99% of people who have played Awakening loved it or liked it because of the sheer fact its a great game. Worst in the series? HA! Someone kill me, I cant stop laughing!



Ultra64 said:

Voted YES! on everything besides Mario Paint & Roslina puzzle. Those seem like a waste of man power that can be used towards these other fantasy titles.



toastyc12 said:

my thoughts:

metroid prime 4: great, but lets follow the prime trilogy with a new timeline of events. Otherwise, anything metroid will be at the top of my list.

Dread: Heres my idea for a 3ds metroid: That team that made zelda ALBW? GENIUS. i want to see a sidescroller that resembles Super Metroid, but overhaul it in the same fashion that LTTP was.

Fzero: Give us one big blockbuster hit from this franchise. you can take the GX, AX levels, but expand on them, push the wii U to the limit, and give it tovus in 1080P. Sega may not house the development team that delivered us GX, but I know they can do it!

mario galaxy collection:Id rather pass on collections, unless they made these two games play as one large game. dont give us a menu to pck separate games like the metroid prime trilogy was

mario paint would be great if it was developed specifically for the wii u, and not just a port. give us new tools, and more features expanding on the basic animation capability of the first game

mario and luigis mansion: no.

majoras mask and kid icarus seem great.

snes remix, this was probably wgat got me the most excited. the banner mock up felt very nostalgic.

starfox:this series needs a bit more love than just an eshop title! but ill take whatever may come.

Some more ideas I came up with

An enhanced Panel de Pon on Wii U. I know intelligent systems doesnt want to bring their forest faeries over to the west coast (though a new art style would do quite well for them), but I dont want another pokemon themed one! At LEAST give it to us as Tetris Attack 2. this would be great for the eshop.

Another great eshop puzzle game? puyo puyo! c'mon, Sonic Team!

Heres a franchise to think about. Startropics. the two games that were released here on the NES were a hit. these would be a great game to relaunch as a 3Ds action RPG. itld even look great with ALBW's graphic engine (though My first image of this game came to me by walking around on my new leaf island at night). combine the first two games, remove the 90's references with something that is a bit more... timeless. expand beyond the events of the second game, and give it a three-act trilogy feel. sold!

CING may no longer be with us, but i'd love for someone to pick up their IP's, and give us that much wanted connection story between Hotel Dusk and Trace Memory. the wii U would be a great platform to base its puzzles on as well. find those devs!

theres a lot of other possibilities, but im not strictly aligned to these franchises, moreso their playstyles. whatever comes, im betting im not going to be disappointed!



Yuu_tan97 said:

I'm really hoping for a Avlon Code sequel, if not a 3D Remake, I for one think it deserves it, it lacked mechanics and had a lot of room for improvement on the Original DS, which I believe can be done with the 3DS

Also perhaps Z.O.E near the end of the year? Might be getting my hopes up too high though >w<



Lameborghini said:

Aside the Metroids and Animal Crossing, this would be my wishlist for Nintendo:

1. Pokemon Snap (Wii U)
2. Mario Sunshine HD (Wii U)
3. Wave Race (Wii U)
4. Donkey Kong Wii U (DK 64 style)



JubilifeRival said:

MAJORA'S MASK 3DS!!!!!!!!!!
I don't own a Wii U but I answered as if I did. I'm not interested in Metroid.



Cia said:

It should not be called METROID PRIME IV! And it will not, since the trilogy ended the story and it would make zero sense to return to it. I would want to see a new first- person Metroid game, but it should have a different name...

Seriously, this is almost as visionary as Twilight Princess 2, or Super Mario 64 2. I'll tell you, we'll never see those games (thank god).



donkeykong64 said:

I would absolutely love to see some Rareware inspired games for the Wii U. Those n64 games hold a special place in this guys' heart.



Marioblkops said:

A Metro is FPS would be Awesome! But man Nintendo needs some other games no revolved around Mario, Zelda, and others. Don't get me wrong, there is a need and want for these games but come on. We need games from third party support. Give us Tiger Woods, Madden, Nascar, nor COD games. Nintendo needs to reach out to all styles of gamers.



Doge said:

all these ideas are a little too much too take in. but hey you missed a spot, oh it kinda looks like... SUPER MARIO GALAXY THREE?
God, I NEED anther 3D mario, but with the story kind of, more (better) power ups (no animal suits please). Gravity effects... you know what im gettin' at. WHO'S WITH ME?! (BTW i DON'T want another "Super 3D Whatever" i want galaxy... I WANT SUPER MARIO UNIVERSE.or...whatever works.



Bolt_Strike said:

Metroid Prime 4 needs to happen badly, the gameplay immediately benefits from the Gamepad. Scan Visor/Command Visor controls, anyone?

I guess Star Fox U should too, the idea of having one player command the battle with the Gamepad is really neat. But I'm not as interested in the Star Fox series. Yet.



mike_intv said:

I can't believe Mario Paint did not rank as highly as some other games. The gamepad seems to be made for that game.



Dudemario89 said:

All of them. Definitely Rosalina's Observetory and Mario Paint.....Any game that is super mario.....LULZ



KaoruxChan said:

The games that i would really love to flipping see! Is:
1st. Style Savvy 3
2. A Witch's tale 2!
3. Okage Shadow King for the 3ds if they can!
4. Hatsune Miku Project Diva 3ds version but come to america! And other States!
5. Precure 3ds game to america and other states!!
6. Pretty Rythm! I wanna have it on america and other states!
7. Powerpuff Girls Z again but in america for the 3ds or ds! But please make it like the game boy ones which you can choose them and fight baddies!
And 8. Powerpuff Girls / Adventure Time! For 3ds and Ds!

Please!! I really want these to come back and 3'rd ones!! ; ^ ;!!
