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.

Retroman632d ago

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.

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.

Ratchet & Clank (PS4) is amazing. Can't wait for Yooka Laylee
