Topic: Nintendo should hire Bluepoint or Tantalus to release HD portable remakes of the greatest Wii and GameCube games (Wii Sports Resort, Nintendo Land, Mario Galaxy, Metroid Trilogy, FZero)

While Nintendo is busy making new titles for the Switch, they should get HD remakes of amazing games that we are dying to play on the go for Switch. The game design and the assets are done. They could contract this work out to any competent dev looking for work. How amazing would it be if we get HD remakes of all the great Nintendo games in all of their franchises (Kirby, Metroid, Mario, Star Fox, etc.) Get them running at high resolutions with 60 fps with upgraded textures and redone 2d artwork.

I want Nintendo to focus on making new games. But there's already a drought. Why not hire Tantalus or Bluepoint to remake some of the greatest Nintendo games for the first Nintendo portable capable of running them? It would fill out the release calender, be fairly cheap to do and wouldn't take away anything from Nintendo's own development efforts.

My picks would be...

Wii Sports Resort + Wii Sports + Nintendo Land Party Pak - The greatest party games ever made packaged together into the greatest party collection of all time. Who could pass that up?

Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 - These games would look absolutely amazing with a HD remake. And being able to play them on the go would be a long time dream come true for me. Wii Sports and Wii Sports Plus - These games are the most successful party games of all time and literally made the Wii a smash hit. I would love to see them remade with 1080p assets to take advantage of Rumble Plus for nostalgia reasons. I know I would love to play this with 1080p assets and advanced motion and advanced rumble the next time I have family or friends over.

Metroid Prime Trilogy HD Remake - One of gamings all time greatest trilogies remade in HD and available to play on the go. This would be an instant hit.

F-Zero GX HD + Wave Race HD + Excitebots HD - Yes Mario Kart is amazing but Nintendo has neglected it's other three amazing racers. Releasing this in HD and on the go would bring high speed, high action racing to a new generation of youth while also enabling us old fogeys to enjoy them again.

Again, it would take absolutely nothing away from Nintendo's development time to remake these classics and release them onto the Switch, the first portable truly home console in history. All the assets are done and they could hire any competent developer over to do the porting work. The revenue these games would generate would easily overcome the modest costs to make these remakes. It would automatically plug any downtime in between releases and for many of us who long dreamed of playing these titles on the go, this would be a memorable addition.

What titles would you want remade?




I can't be the only one here dying to play Pikmin on the go on the first portable capable of doing so.



@Wikoogle I agree with you - it would be cool to see these games remastered instead of just be virtual console games. I lost interest in nintendo after the wii. I was excited and bought zelda at launch of the wii but I saw a demo of the ps3 and got that and enjoyed the jump in graphics and the mature content. God of war, batman arkham series, uncharted etc. I loved nintendo games but I hated the crappy wii motes the fact they needed batteries and most of the time when you pointed them at a tv they would jump around like a raver at a skrillex concert.



HD remakes have been wildly successful for Nintendo. I vote they remake ALL Mario / Zelda / Kirby games in HD, . Imagine Mario All-Stars, 64, Sunshine, Galaxy, Skyward Sword all remade in HD.

Look at Windwaker HD and Twilight Princess HD. Its like printing money.

While their at it, give me every single Mario Kart track ever remastered in HD !!

I would rather see a sequel to Wii Sports, similarly to how Wii Sports Club was handled. Hell, I wouldn't mind a port of Wii Sports Club on Switch (though it will need to be rebranded so that the "Wii" name is dropped). Baseball and Golf won't be quite the same though due to the Joy-Cons being so small and there no longer being a Gamepad (it would be much too expensive to use a second Switch unit to fulfil that function, but a man can dream).

An affiliate link to a Link in need is an affiliate Link indeed.

Yes, a new Wii sports would be amazing. But I want it to have all the old sports too. Can't be Wii sports without bowling, tennis and golf.
