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

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.

Good list.

I'm especially interested in Metroid Prime IV, Animal Crossing (Wii U), and Paper Mario: Origami.

I want a Majora's Mask remake, but I'd personally prefer it on the Wii U.

If they remade Majoras Mask exclusively for the 3DS, I'd be pissed.

The key there is that it's cheap to do it on 3DS. They've already taken an N64 Zelda and brought it to the 3DS - with the low amount of detail on N64 games, the low poly count and extra artwork demand of bringing it to the 3DS instead of an HD console, the already-established workflow with devs who just did the same exact thing a few years ago... it's cheap.

"But they did it for Wind Waker on WiiU!" Yes, have you seen Wind Waker uprezzed on Dolphin? All they had to do was add a few more effects - that cel-shaded style made Wind Waker actually tolerable on an HD screen through a Gamecube. Yes, they added a bit more functionality, but just a bit. If they did MM for WiiU, though, they'd basically have to make entirely new graphics for it, alongside any added gameplay features. And Nintendo doesn't think they're going to magically have a huge install base on that thing.

None of those games, if in development, are coming out in 2014. Metroid Prime IV? Majora's Mask? Seriously? We would know about these games if THEY WHERE to launch in 2014.

PeteyMcPickle1563d ago

Nintendo is VERY good at keeping things to themselves. We didn't know about SM3DW till E3, and that came out the same year.

GhostTurtle1563d ago

True. Its just I put those games on a higher pedestal than 3DW. They wouldn't have done the same with SMG3 imo.

Seems like Nintendo just isn't in touch with it's fan base. Several of these games were asked for in 2013 too as well.

Don't ask why but i want new 3D ice climbers on wiiu.

TheVideoGamHer1563d ago

New, modern StarTropics please.

Nice pick. I played the crap out of the NES games.
