GameZone's Louis Bedigian takes a look at three iconic Nintendo characters, their evolution over the years, and how they could be improved upon before their next inevitable release.
Donkey Kong - We'll see in just a month!
Why not just give Nintendo your bank account?
stop trollin. its cumbersome to read comments with no real relevance.
Metroid keeps getting worse and worse.
That is a very good article :)
LOL @ "their inevitable release." In a way it's fun for these franchises to continue on, but in another way it'd be nice to see more new IPs and fewer rehashes of old licenses.
good article. these games are classics, always will be.
I hope team ninja keeps on making metroids from here on out. The only things the last game lacked was story and HD even though it didn't lack in those depts. It just something they could work on.
I want Nintendo to develop console Metroids again. And use R&D1 (whatever they're called now)
Pft, Nintendo doesn't need help with their franchises. Useless article xD
The next Donkey Kong game should use the Wii Vitality Sensor. When the player's pulse spikes, the game makes Donkey Kong stop for some bananas and refreshments or a bathroom break. Interactivity at its finest.
Why fix what ain't broken?
Of course, the best ideas can be ruined by poor implementation.
Much as I love these series, Nintendo needs to try and find other potential ideas and give them a chance. As much as I like Mario, Samus and Kirby, I've seen them for years, all the way from the beginning of my gaming hobby in the late eighties to now. A new Star Fox game wouldn't hurt though. Unlikely, it might just be remakes from here on out for that series. But a gamer can still dream for the first series he loved...
