"We ask for your thoughts on how you would like to see Gamecube titles come to the Wii U. Would you prefer straight, cheaper ports onto the Virtual Console, or would you prefer an HD remake similar to Wind Waker HD?" -- Nintendo Enthusiast.
Both, I would like to see some games like Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion get an HD Remake, and others Like Mario Party and such just get VC release. Those types of games do not really need to look prettier.
Agreed. Bring the biggest name games to hd, and the rest as vc ports. HD remakes take a very good amount of time to do.
Seems like the best way to handle things to me.
Considering the CPU is backwards compatible with Broadway (wii) and Gekko (gamecube) I don't know why it's not completely backwards compatible. But my guess is they wanted to do JD remakes of many of those GameCube games after seeing the success of them on other platforms.
GotHD exactly. good call
If Luigis Mansion got a HD remake I would want them to add more rooms and stuff. I would love it if they added a third and maybe forth mode after you complete your second play through with the mansion mirrored. Maybe one with peach trying to rescue Mario instead with other cameos. I'd rather Nintendo release a HD Dark Moon for the Wii U....the sequel should of been on consoles to begin with.
I'm sure I heard a rumour a while back Dark Moon was being ported by Next Level Games. Sure they'll announce it in the next Direct or so if it's legit.
Well hopefully thats true, I really think the Wii U should of had Luigis Mansion 2 as a launch game like the Gamecube. It's not really a game suited to handhelds in my opinion, people have been asking for a sequel for years and when it comes it's only on handhelds.
I agree with you there. I liked DM, but gave up after the second mansion as prefer to play games on a TV (and Gamepad!)
Tbh id rather have an expanded luigis mansion. Dark moon was good, but the level structure was all disjointed because it was made to be played in segments on a portable. The original is like this one sitting, no load times exploration heavy game and dark moon is pretty much structured like a platformer. I like both but for a console i'd prefer 1.
@Concertoine I guess they could make an actual sequel to the game which is like the first game. It's called Luigis Mansion Dark Moon in Japan, no mention of the number 2 to imply that it's direct sequel, I suppose they could do what they did for the Super Mario Bros games and just have it different to the rest of the world. Like Luigis Mansion 2 for the Wii U.
Both!? Now there's practical... Virtual Console for me, because most Gamecube games - certainly the one you would want to play today - still stand up well visually, if of course you aren't a self-proclaimed "hardcore". The penchant for HD remakes is getting beyond a joke now.
So you can't see a game like Eternal Darkness as an HD remake? Updated visuals and controls would make that game even better.
true. I really hope nintendo gives some gamecube and N64 games an HD upgrade then bring those games to the gamePad. They dont have to go over board like they did with Windwaker 1080p HD, but yea. waiting for the day the gamepad goes cLoud.
A combination of both, release them as HD remakes, but release them physically and on the VC. I've seen Youtube videos of Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion etc being played on Dolphin emulators in HD and they look incredible. The Wii U could really benefit from having more remakes like The Windwaker. They should also add some extras as an incentive.
I mean, if it's an either or scenario that you are supposing, then i'd rather have HD remakes, but i don't want dev time and resources used to basically make a digital HD library of the top Gamecube games.
No, only VC console releases. I' sick of those HD re-releases.
I would play them anyway. If the game can benefit from a HD remake, go ahead and do it, just don't abuse the strategy. If anything, it would be nice to see them at the VC.
Bring back Rouge Squadron
I need more Rogue Squadron in my life, and it makes me cry when I think what happened to Factor 5. That's the kind of thing Nintendo need to use their billions for, saving amazing developers!
If they're gonna release em again might as well make it better.
GC to Wii U VC and N64 to 3DS VC.
I don't feel the need to buy or play games I originally played 20+ years ago... However, I would sink £££s into N64 and GCN games I missed the first time around, even more if they were HD remakes. I'd also enjoy a SNES Remix more than NES Remix!
An official HD Metroid Prime 1 and 2 would be great. Fzero GX with added online play would be great! It would do me until a proper sequel :D
Gamecube games still hold up very well. I think HD remakes would an unnecessary waste of resources.
I'd prefer VC, but both is fine I guess. The only issues are games that use the analog triggers...
not time, money and resources wasted on bringing old games back.
What a dumb comment from someone who clearly doesn't have a Wii u. the Wii u has games with more games to come this year, in fact Wii U has the best line up of games this year than any other console. so adding some retro stuff to Wii u can only be a good thing. try again troll. Lol
true, im one of the vast majority who doesnt own a wiiu. why? because it has no games. people dont buy a next gen console to play gamecube games. we want new games. wiiu is a sales disaster (and a disaster for having minimal games to play) so nintendo need to get busy getting those NEW games out. not scraping the old barrels out.
Sunshine HD (already confirmed a 3D mario is already in Development hopefully like this ish?) Enternal Darkness HD (plus the spiritual successor) Pokemon Colosseum (the first NOT the second) HD (plus a game similar to it) Luigi's Mansion HD (plus a proper sequel) all the rest can be on Virtual Console.* I just hope an Animal Crossing is announced soon bringing the excellence of New Leaf to the big screen. *Disclaimer: this is my opinion and only include a few games.
I thought the 3D Mario game ended up being 3D World. I was also hoping it'd be like SM:Sunshine aswell.
Im surprised nobody has mentioned bringing Paper Mario TTYD to either VC or HD remake.
I would buy an HD remake of F-Zero with online mp. Also I think WiiU F-Zero should be open world like NFS with circuits available as well. You can add Rogue Squadron to that list too.
So I suppose it's ok for Microsoft to churn out remakes of fable, far cry and halo 2 but yeah that's ok, even tho the games ain't a patch on half of nintendo's back catalogue... Jog On! As for no games on a wii u you soulless cretin I guess you missed the zelda remake alongside brand spanking new games like pikmin 3 lego city undercover new 3d mario world, donkey kong in barely a few weeks and a new mario kart over the coming months, seriously some people just chat utter shite!
They might not be to all peoples tastes but call me crazy but I thought pikmin was a game, but I suppose lego and mario must be real, clearly not a game in this crazy fools opinion, get back on Cod/battlefield assassins creed or some yearly churned out turd! Preferably on Xbox as I'll completely miss you on ps3/4 wii u yippie!
Both. HD remakes for the more illustrious titles, and virtual console for the rest.
Both. But gamecubes biggest games like the re games, metroid, Mario sunshine, should all get hd releases. I still play those awesome games on my GameCube.
I'd much prefer reboots or enhanced versions. Nintendo's games are similar enough to old ones, may aswell redo the games with better graphics etc.
Games I missed first time around Majora's Mask, Eternal Darkness and Star Fox. I would love to play enhanced versions on Wii U.
VC yes. Not HD. Too much time can make HD reskins seem awkward or out of place.
Bah whatever...just give me some freaking GC games already...HD or not, I don't care! JUST BRING THEM!! QUIT WAITING!!! WE WANT THEM!!!
All should be sold on the store with a higher res like 720p. Shouldn't be hard to force a higher res if it already emulates the games I wouldn't think, they are two gens old. I'd only want a few HD remakes but they would be better off in HD collections vs reselling each game. Baten Kaitos 1/2, Zelda TP/SS, Fire Emble POR/RD, and Metroid Prime collection (maybe Other M also). Xenoblade and The Last Story are both worthy of remakes as they were doing to much for the wii to handle and so damn amazing. Also add in button emulation for offscreen wii games. Why can't I use the tablet controller to play Xenoblade when it allows controller input? Odd design decision there.
