Five Nintendo Games that Need a Reboot

Nintendo has given gamers many franchises to fall in love with over the years. Many of gaming’s classic and iconic titles, such as Super Mario Brothers and the Legend of Zelda, have been mostly due to the creative mind of Nintendo’s own Shigeru Miyamoto. Yet outside of the main popular games that Nintendo has been known for, a few names have been lost or forgotten in the tides of time. While a few have received some sort of re-envisioning or homage in other games, they were never truly given the lime light as much as any of the other popular first party titles from the Big N. These are games that need to be given another chance for success and brought back into the public consciousness with a fresh coat of paint. These are a few games Nintendo needs to give a proper reboot. (Earthbound, Star Fox 64 3D, Wario Land: Shake It!, Wave Race: Blue Storm, Wii, Wii U)

My choice would be F-ZeroGX....
... which is still an amazing game even today. Gorgeous racer on the Cube, especially when played in FullHD in Dolphin (although sadly often crashing).

Such a shame that the WiiU doesn't have backwards compatiility for Cube games.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who did not forget and is longing for another F-Zero.

Good list, could add some more like a new ice climbers game.

Good list right here. I especially want to see a new Star Fox sooner rather then later.

I agree with Earthbond, Star Fox & Wave Race. I would also add Star Tropics too.

Waverace is in my top 5 N64 games tbh never got into bluestorm the tracks wern't on par sadly enough with a game that was many years before it for me. If it ever was to geta reboot they need to get the feel off the game right again.

Not just the looks and musical score wasn't a track on blue storm that came close to Dolphin park. Well it was my fave till i came across this idiot. This can't count Surely ffs i got 30+ thousand the proper way ffs glitching mofo here :/.

1080 Snowboarding, FZero and Waverace... Simples!

Also, I know they rebooted Excitebike on the Wii but I think it needs a re-reboot into something similar to Trials Evolution - which is way more "exciting" than the ok but slightly underwhelming Wii racer.
