Though the 3D platformer genre is in decline, it's far from permanently dead.
It's time for a Donkey Kong Country but in 3D. Or a sequel to Donkey Kong 64. Nintendo can let Playtonic make it.....exclusive of course. ;p
That would be great! plus I've always wanted another like Mario 64. They could make awesome 3D platformers with the power of todays consoles they would be beautiful.
Any Platformer be Excellent with the power of todays consoles . Treasure and Wayforward would make awesome 3D Platformers.
Yuke Yuke trouble makers by Treasure was fantastic.
Ratchet & Clank '16 & Mirror's Edge: Catalyst were great 3D platformers this year
Ratchet was good, but I want more pure platformers. The first Jak is a good example, and it still holds up well to this day.
The Reboot R&C was too easy . All in all ok, wish it was exact copy of original first game with better Graphics .
I own a WiiU. Trust me, 3D platformers are still going strong. The only reason they are in decline is Sony and Microsoft all but gave up on them, knowing Nintendo owns this genre and any 'competition' fell way short. Also, I prefer the mix of 2D and 3D. It shouldn't all be just 3D.
Enlighten me on some great 3d platformers that have came out this year on the WiiU, i need some new games to pick up on my WiiU.
Did Microsoft ever have any 3D platforms exclusives?
@ sullynathan Kameo Elements of Power is the only one I can think of. Never really thought about it. I'm a multi console owner so I always have options. Edit: They might have more on the 360 due to indies last gen.
Were they ever gone ? XD
Ratchet & Clank (PS4) is amazing. Can't wait for Yooka Laylee
Don't tell Nintendo 3DS Fanboys that Platformers are on the decline, they sure have a lot of them. It's like JRPG's on PS Vita...there is no shortage. I have recently finished my hard-copy collection of them on Vita (which isn't all that many), Sly Collection, Sly Thieves in Time, Jak and Daxter, and just got Ratchet and Clank. I haven't even played a single one of them...mostly bought them for the kids, in which they haven't even played them because Minecraft on Xbox gets all their attention (not sure why myself).
