This is a list of the 5 games I want announced most at Nintendo’s upcoming e3 presentation.
5. Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 HD or Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
I know what your thinking, not another port. Yes, a Mario galaxy 1 and 2 HD or Skyward Sword HD would in fact be yet another port, but these games are different. First off, they are much better then most of the WiiU ports we have seen come to the system (even the great ones like Bayonetta 1 and 2, DKC Tropical Freeze, and Mario kart 8). I mean they are literally some of the best games ever made. Second off, they would look beautiful in Hd. From Galaxy’s gorgeous environments to Skyward sword’s colorful watercolor cel shade. Getting to play these games in portable fashion just adds to the joy that these games already deliver, (although SS might have some problems like forcing you to play in tabletop mode due to the motion controls) and using the joy cons for motion control in both games would feel natural.
4. A NEW Super Smash Bros.
This one is a bit of a cheat as smash for switch has already been announced, but we don’t actually know if this a new game or a port of smash for wiiu. I’m hoping for a brand spanking new smash game with new mechanics, stages, modes etc. I’ve gotten all the playtime I want on Smash 4 and even though my favorite character Ness would probably get nerfed, its for the better that smash 5 is brand new, and not a port. As for what I think will happen is up in the air. The game’s creator Masahiro Sakurai always likes to make something new, but (in the graphics department at least) there isn’t much more the Switch can do when it comes to evolving Smash 4, so the game could also be like a half sequel. Like, maybe same graphics and maybe even mechanics as smash 4, but new modes, stages, characters, and more to make it feel like a sequel. Of course, it could also just be a port of smash wiiu. When asked recently about whether the game is new or not, Bill Trinen of Nintendo just said ‘stay tuned’. This worries me a bit that the game might just be an enhanced port and not new, but we will see. Fingers crossed!
3. Mother 3
Mother 3 or Earthbound 2 or whatever they would call it I don’t care, just bring mother 3 to the west Nintendo! Mother 3 has been out in Japan for 12 years now still with no western release, and every Mother fan out there is still waiting patiently. I personally was never a big fan of the Mother series growing up, but I recently played and beat both Earthbound Beginnings (Mother 1), and Earthbound (Mother 2), and I loved them. Well I liked Mother 1 and loved Mother 2. Such weird and quirky, but extremely addictive games, I now fully understand why this series has such a huge fanbase. I’m now one of those fans, and I along with everyone else REALLY want them to bring over Mother 3. Will they bring it over though? The chances are 50-50. The recent announcement that the switch will have no virtual console really hurts the chances, but rumors have been floating around for a few years now that they plan on translating it. Not only that, but Mother 1 was brought over in 2015 (after it original japanese 1988 release!), and Earthbound (which was a rare grab despite being a worldwide release) has been ported to various systems these past few years. There is still hope. C,mon Reggie give us Mother 3! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CePk795Xum4
2. Pikmin 4
This is technically cheating too since Pikmin 4 has been confirmed in the past to be in development, but we have seen nothing of it yet and the platform its being made for hasn’t been revealed either (although I think we can all take a good guess as to what system it will release for). Pikmin 4 would be great because we haven’t seen a REAL pikmin game in about 5 years and pikmin 3 was fantastic. The new visuals and pikmin really made the game a joy to play, and the controls felt great. It was a bit to short though, and that is another reason I want Pikmin 4, the more pikmin the better. They are just very adorbs (as some people would say), and just lighten up your day no matter what mood your in.
- Animal Crossing Now my most wanted game, an animal crossing for switch. This one is pretty self-explanatory. So here are just 5 quick reasons I want it. 1. Animal crossing is great. 2. Animal crossing amiibo festival on wiiu was a stupid party game so we need a new real animal crossing game. 3. It’s been 6 years since the last real animal crossing came out so we are due for a new game. 4. It would look awesome in HD. 5. It would work great with the switch’s hybrid nature. Please Nintendo bring animal crossing. Even if that is all you show please bring us a new animal crossing.
So there you have it, 5 games I want Nintendo to reveal at this years e3. Unfortunately, there is a good chance that not one of these games is announced. I’m honestly expecting more new announcements to be like Kid Icarus, star fox racing, and like a wave race or something, believe it or not. But Nintendo is always hard to predict so fingers crossed!
