Side-Scrolling Platformers: How the Nintendo Wii Reinvigorated a Forgotten Genre

Gamnesia: At the time of the 64’s rise to fame, side-scrolling came to be considered as a limitation of gaming in the past, rather than a genre of its own. With the Wii console Nintendo had proven that side-scrolling platformers are truly a whole genre that can provide a unique and entertaining experience even today, in the world of 3D and HD.

With modern 3D graphical sprites moving in 2D or even sometimes 2.5D landscapes,Nintendo has used the Wii to reinvigorate the once forgotten genre. Let’s look back at some of the major Wii titles that contributed to the resurgence of side-scrolling platformers. (Nintendo, Wii)
