The Nintendo Sequels We're Still Desperately Missing 135

An anonymous reader writes "While the Wii U struggles, Nintendo's been raiding the archives and resurrecting some of its lesser known stars from yesteryear, including Chibi Robo, Steel Diver, and yes, Mario's oft-ignored brother himself — the company is going so far as to call 2013 the "year of Luigi". But as an article published today points out, there are still many more forgotten heroes in Nintendo's IP back catalogue. Series like Excitebike, Waveracer and 1080 used to be trusted to launch a new console, while NES classics like Ice Climber have all but been forgotten, alongside some of GameFreal's lesser known creations. Will they be enough to save Nintendo this generation?"

    Those seem fine. Some of the other titles mentioned here are more stale than piss.

    This is the XXIst century. People do not have a lot of time to invest in console games a lot of the time. So a shoot'em'up or boxing game sounds like a pretty good idea.

    Skies of Arcadia. I know it was originally a Dreamcast game and ported to Gamecube. I had it on my GC. That game was by far the most fun RPG (and probably video game) I've ever played.

    I'd also recommend remaking River City Ransom. I know there's been some remakes and some clones. But that game was special and deserves a proper remake.

All seems condemned in the long run to approximate a state akin to Gaussian noise. -- James Martin
