  • Hey Famiboards, Episode 4 of the Famiboards Discussion Club is now live! WestEgg, Irene, and VolcanicDynamo discuss Princess Peach: Showtime, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, F-Zero 99, and the rest of the September Nintendo Direct! Check it out here!

Discussion What game do you most want to see a re-release from Nintendo?

The Golden Sun series. I feel like they should remake the first two games, pack ‘em together and then remake Dark Dawn, but literally make it more akin to the first two games.

Seeing the Direct and just how many great games are coming out of the Nintendo archives had me thinking this question.

Coming up soon we have games like Super Mario RPG, Another Code, Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Luigi's Mansion 2, and Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door all making their grand return.

What else do you all really want to see make a comeback?

For me, there's one game that stands out above the rest. Where the HELL is Diddy Kong Racing?! I would be so incredibly hyped just to have the game on NSO so I can play it online. Or to even see a proper remake of the original version of the game that has never been available again since N64. (We don't talk about the DS version which removed our boys Banjo and Conker)

I never fully played Diddy Kong Racing, so I’d give it a try as a remake!

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn. Loved those games.
Wooord! I enjoyed Path of Radiance a lot! Never got to play Radiant Dawn.
  • For Frog the Bell Tolls (1:1 remake in Link's Awakening engine)
  • The Case Files of Kyle Hyde (expanded remakes of Hotel Dusk & Last Window)
  • Star Fox 00 (Zero port+, reworked for single screen rail shooting & dogfighting)
id like to see more collections and more straight ports like Pikmin 1+2 HD. there's merit in reserving the original games and art styles, at higher resolutions, rather than asset remaking everything with a different art style

would love to see a star fox collection for instance. 64 does not need another remake, just put 64 and 643DS into a collection and up the resolution
All of them as full remakes:

Frog the Bells Toll For
Mole Mania
Sin & Punishment Dual remakes
Tomato Adventure
The Last Story
Archaic Sealed Heat
Chibi Robo 1
Starfox Assault
Starfox Adventure
Magical Vacation dual remakes

Which one I want the most? The Frog, of course.
It’s a tough choice between Kirby Air Ride and Kid Icarus: Uprising for me… I need City Trial and Dark vs. Light on a modern Nintendo console!!
It was a TTYD remake/remaster by a large margin.
Next is Paper Mario 64.
Then Oracles in the style of Link's Awakening.
Finally, a Super Metroid remaster/remake with modern controls.
Metroid Prime 2 and 3
Galaxy 2
Xenoblade Chronicles X
F-Zero GX

Kinda basic, but there you go.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles X
  • Sin and Punishment: Star Successor
  • The Last Story
  • Kid Icarus: Uprising
  • F-Zero GX (likelier than ever since F-Zero 99)
  • Mischief Makers (published by Nintendo in the West, this counts!)
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  • Metroid Prime 2 and 3 (very likely)
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2
  • Pandora's Tower

Totally not THAT unreasonable, right Nintendo???
I would pay more money than I'd care to admit for a Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link remake
Metroid prime 2/3 followed by Xenoblade X. I'll be happy with a simple remaster on prime but I want a XC DE situation for X.
Wind Waker. It's crazy that we got Tokyo Mirage Sessions yet Wind Waker is absent.

Heck if Zelda got the amount of releases the Mario franchise gets, they could have put every single mainline title on the Switch like 5 times by now.
Pokemon Colosseum and XD

They're like the last major thing left from my Gamecube days that haven't been ported/remade/remastered to Switch already.
I'd love to have those in HD with Home Compatability..... and when they eventually also release the GBA games through NSO, we can get the complete Gen 3 experience in a more convinent way.
Came to post these, glad somebody else beat me to it. These two being centred around double battles makes them my favourite Pokémon games to play through even today. So many opportunities to use Pokémon that get ignored in the main games but have really cool niches in doubles (Plusle my beloved). I still wish we’d get another Orre game or a game centred around doubles but I lost hope ages ago..

But yes, I’d even pay full price for ports of these.
Off the top of my head:

  • Permanent Eshop rerelease of Mario Sunshine
  • OG Luigi's Mansion 1
  • Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (I feel like they might wanna just wait and make a remake instead though)
  • Smash Bros Melee
  • Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
  • Mario Power Tennis
  • F-Zero GX

  • Permanent Eshop rerelease of Mario Galaxy
  • Mario Galaxy 2
  • Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (Again, Same as PoR, we might need to wait for a remake imo)

  • Ocarina of Time 3d
  • Majoras Mask 3d
  • Fire Emblem Awakening
  • Fire Emblem Fates (Ideally all three routes in a single package - it's literally impossible to play Revelation now thanks to the eshop shutdown lol)
  • Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  • Mario 3d Land
  • Zelda: Link Between Worlds
  • Metroid: Samus Returns
  • Kid Icarus: Uprising
100th individual who will say Xenoblade X here. Really incredible that the game's one of the very few that remains stuck on the Wii U lol

I would preferably want it for Super Ultra Big 4K Switch Deluxe Up 2 Titan Fonseca, though. Just some touches here and there and you would have legitimately one of the best looking games on the new system right from the get go.
Star Fox Zero and Devil's Third

I think a double pack of Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn is definitely happening down the line. Thought about it literally yesterday.
Nothing new in my desires but

Kid Icarus Uprising
Last Story
Golden Sun

All because they’re some of my favorite games from Nintendo’s past I’d love to play again but also in hopes that if they get ported/remastered/rereleased/whatever that we see continuation of those series
