Should The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker be ported for the Nintendo Switch?

When it comes down to classic GameCube titles from the early 00’s that deserves to be re-released for the Nintendo Gamecube one of the few titles that instantly comes to mind is The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker game. Ever since, Wind Waker appeared on the Nintendo Gamecube between late 2002-early 2003 it managed to become one of the most popular action-adventure games ever made for that console. In fact, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker managed to reach over 3 million copies worldwide in sales. Also, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker was eventually ported for the Nintendo Wii-U back in 2013.

The HD version of Wind Waker was also praised by critics and went on to sell over 2.2 million units worldwide. Seeing that the Nintendo Switch is not backwards compatible with Wii-U games having another port for the hybrid console would be great. Not everyone got a chance to play the HD version of Wind Waker and its a classic from the Zelda series that long time fans would love to see on the Nintendo Switch next to Twilight Princess.

Will Super Mario Galaxy ever appear on the Nintendo Switch?

As many people might already know its been over 10 years since Super Mario Galaxy appeared on the Nintendo Wii back in November 2007. Super Mario Galaxy was probably the most popular 3D Mario game of the 2000’s decade and is a game that managed to reach over 12 million units worldwide in terms of sales. There is no question on whether or not Super Mario Galaxy deserves to be released for the Nintendo Switch. However, there has been no announcements or plans in relation to Super Mario Galaxy coming to the Switch console anytime in the near future.

After all, there is always the possibility that Super Mario Galaxy could be overshadowed by Super Mario Odessey which is one of the best selling Mario games of all time for the Nintendo Switch. To be quite honest Super Mario Galaxy is better off as a Wii exclusive but seeing on the Switch would be awesome despite the fact that its unlikely to ever happen.

Should Grand Theft Auto VI be saved for the PlayStation 5?

As many people know Gran Theft Auto V has been out since September 2013 and since then as become one of the most popular action adventure titles of the 10’s decade. Since its release five years ago Grand Theft Auto V has managed to become the second best selling game for the Xbox 360 by reaching over 17 million units worldwide in sales. Also, since the Fall of 2013 Grand Theft Auto V has been ported to multiple game such as the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 along with the Xbox One and has managed to sell over millions copies worldwide and has reportedly earned over $6 billion in revenue.

While Grand Theft Auto VI would be nice game to have for the PlayStation 4 it would probably be best if RockStar saves it for the PlayStation 5. However, seeing how Grand Theft Auto V was released for multiple game systems there is a good chance that Grand Theft Auto VI will appear on the PlayStation 4 along with the PlayStation 5 once the game has been officially announced RockStar Games. As of right now there is very little we know about Grand Theft Auto VI however we do know that it will be one of the most highly anticipated sequels to an action-adventure title in quite sometime.

Should there have been an Actraiser game for the N64?

When we think about popular side scrolling titles for the SNES that were popular in the early 90’s that never made to the N64 games such as the Actraiser series comes to mind. The two platform city building simulation titles known as Actraiser 1 & 2 developed by Quintet are seen as underrated classics that deserved re-releases but never received them. In fact, some would argue that Actraiser 1 & 2 were both unique titles among many others from the Super NES that made people want to purchase the console itself. The reason why Quintet never decided to make an Actraiser game for the Nintendo 64 is unknown.

Bit them again it would be pretty hard to picture what an Actraiser game would look like in 3D. Also, Nintendo was starting to lose ground to Sony’s PS1 during the console wars towards the mid 90’s and having an Actraiser game for the N64 could of been disastrous. An Actraiser game for the PS1 definitely could have worked in theory. However, there were so many big titles on the PS1 during the mid to late 90’s such as Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy VII & VIII and Gran Turismo that people in countries such as Japan and America that people were far more interested in during that time period. Bringing back the Actraiser on the Game Boy Advance during the early 00’s could have turned heads especially since some popular SNES were ported to the 32 bit console during that time period.

Double Dragon II: The Revenge (1988) vs Battletoads (1991) which game was more popular?

As many people know the beat em up genre was very popular back in the late 80’s and early 90’s within the gaming world. Both the Double Dragon and the Battletoads series comes to mind when people think about in relation to classics beat em up titles in relation to the NES. While Double Dragon II: The Revenge along with Battletoads are considered to be critically acclaimed beat em up games for the Nintendo Entertainment System they were both considered to be her difficult by those who played both titles back in the day. In terms of which title was more popular following their respective releases for the NES is one that is debatable among gamers.

While the NES Battletoads game arguably had better visuals in relation to stage design some would that Double Dragon II had certain features that made it standout even more. Certain things such as boss characters having their own theme music along with players having the chance to battle each other at the end of the game in co-op mode made Double Dragon Isi a memorable NES Classic. In terms of which beat em up was more popular on the NES most would probably give Double Dragon II the edge over Battletoads.

Could Chrono Trigger have been a major success on the Game Boy Advance?

When it comes down to big SNES RPG titles to never appear on the Game Boy Advance Chrono Trigger is definitely on top of many people’s list. Despite, the fact that Square Enix released RPG titles such such as Sword of Mana along Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls for what ever we never got to see a re-release or a sequel to Chrono Trigger back in the early 00’s. While its true that the Chrono series slowly started to decline following the release of Chrono Trigger back in 1995 there are still people who wanted to see a re-release of the game sometime between 2001-2005. If Square Enix has went with the decision to re-release Chrono Trigger for the GBA the game could of still been a huge attraction on the 32-bit handheld console.

While some might argue that the Pokémon series could of overshadowed Chrono Trigger in the early 00’s the game still would have been appealing to hardcore fans of the series while giving those who were unfamiliar with the game a chance to see what they missed on the SNES during the early 90’s. Chrono Trigger was one of the best 2D RPG titles that Square Enix has ever produced and was a game that definitely deserved to be on the Game Boy Advance during the early 2000’s.

Could Strider have been a huge success for the SNES?

When we think about really big games from the early 90’s that never made it to the SNES one of the many titles that comes to mind is Capcom’s Strider. As a platform title Strider was very fun to play in arcade centers following its initial release in 1989. Ever since, the game first appeared in arcade centers it received positive reviews from fans and critics alike and was ported for the Sega Genesis along with the Master System between 1990-1991. In fact, some would argue that Strider was probably the best platform title to never appear on the NES or the SNES during the early 90’s.

But then again Strider could have been overshadowed by the likes of Super Mario World, Mega Man X, Donkey Kong Country and many others. If anything having Strider as a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive exclusive contributed to the overall appeal of the game itself. Strider could have Berta success on the SNES but not to same extent that it was on the Genesis/ Mega Drive consoles.
