The lights are on
Power Member - Level 9
The upcoming release of the Wii-U is something I've been looking forward to for a while. While I'm not the biggest fan of the controller, at least it's not motion controls, and no matter what happens, Nintendo will still make amazing games. However, I'm not here to talk about the Wii-U's power or its name. I'm here to tell you what games I think Nintendo should put on the Wii-U, and what changes they should make to the franchise.
The Legend of Zelda
The Legend of Zelda is an amazing series, and I have no doubt that the Wii-U's installment will be as exceptional as ever. With its great gameplay and amazing worlds, I'm sure it won't disappoint.
Improvements that should be made:
I'm trusting you on this one, Nintendo. You can make Mario games that are amazing, and nothing I could say could possibly to their level of awesomeness justice.
Star Fox 64 was a great game, putting you in the cockpit of an Arwing. Star Fox Assault was another game in the series that I liked, with its 3rd person shooter style with vehicles for you to drive. If they kept up that style, they really couldn't do much wrong
Pokémon Stadium Revolution
I wasn't a very big part of any gaming community when Pokémon Battle Revolution came out, so I don't know how warm a reception it got, but I think that the game was great. While it was more of an extension of the 4th Generation games, the graphics style honestly looked better than some of the visuals on the more powerful systems. Supplement this with the Wii-U's graphics, and add some of my favorite aspects of the old Pokémon Stadium games, and you've made me a customer.
What I really want is a hybrid between the old Pokémon Stadium games and the newer Pokémon Battle Revolution. The aspects I would put in from each game are these:
Super Smash Bros.
Because there's little to change about SSB besides some minor gripes, I'm just going to include the characters I think should make an appearance.
Metroid Prime was a pretty great game series, and while the Other M was met with mixed feelings, that wouldn't stop Nintendo from making another great installment into the series.
The Path of the Cubone
This game would be AMAZING! It would feature you as a Cubone on its way to avenge the death of its mother and wipe out Team Rocket. It takes place at the same time as RBY, and you storm several Team Rocket hideouts throughout Kanto that Red missed, and give Team Rocket a huge whipping. The only downside: due to the extreme power of the main character you might find the game a little easy most of the time, even at extreme difficulty.
A New IP
I believe in Nintendo. Their games have always been great, and I love all their series. However, I really want to see a new IP. I want to see something fresh that show just what Nintendo's got. In my opinion, they're the best developers out there, and I place my trust in them to make a new game series worth playing.
No matter what Nintendo throws at us with the Wii-U, I'll be waiting impatiently to play my heart out. And my lungs, and quite possibly every organ in my body.
Good ideas, and I'll wait until I can try out the Wii U at a friend's house or there are some absolutely home-run deal closers released. Meaning, there needs to be a Paper Mario, Pokemon Colosseum follow up, and Pikmin 3 needs to come out as soon as possible.
Also, make the games look awesome. HD, but Wii textures doesn't cut it *Looks at NSMB's 2"
I see nintendo making every one of these games for the Wii U. I agree that they need a new IP also.
I like all your ideas... but I've only ever played Nintendo stuff a little. Always have really enjoyed their games though, and I'm probably going to switch to a Wii-U. People may say what they want about Nintendo rehashing their franchises, but at least they actually release exclusives. *Cough* Microsoft *Cough*
On a side note, Wii-U will support the classic controller, the one that came with 007. So I'm thinking more stuff can be done using that instead of the motion controller. Hopefully.
Great compilation here, I hope your expectations are met with this system! And yes, King Boo would be freaking amazing for Super Smash Brothers.
I agree with most of these, especially a hybrid of Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Battle Revolution. The rental system is a must have.
