I just wanna say I’m glad LEGO SW: The Skywalker Saga is coming out, since that’s a remake I’ve wanted for ages. Hopefully Harry Potter and Indiana Jones get the same treatment.
Zelda needs to learn to do proper remakes. The only remakes its done so far are OoT, MM, and LA, all of which added little to no new features, making 99% of the difference purely graphical. They need to take a page from Pokemon (which actually has a problem of too many remakes and should’ve stopped after HG/SS) and actually add meaningful new content to their remakes. Here’s a few I’d like to see.
The NES Games: A two-in-one package that reimagines both games as a single one with the different gameplay styles blended together. For example, the entire map from Zelda II is explorable, but at the scale of Zelda I. since the Triforces of Wisdom and Courage are split, the Triforce of Power should be too, allowing for an additional 8 dungeons or so. Towns would be explored from top-down instead of sidescrolling. The plot from the manuals would be directly incorporated into the game through the addition of important NPCs and events. The game would start with Link living in a village just south of the starting screen of Zelda I. Oh and no lives, obviously.
The Oracle Games: The games themselves wouldn’t change all that much (although maybe they should, since I was unimpressed with what I played of OoS), with the main addition being the fabled third entry Oracle of Secrets. No clue what it’d be about, but in terms of gameplay focus, if in’s game focuses on combat, and Nayru’s on puzzles, I think Farore’s ought to revolve around exploration, which conveniently fits the series’s recent direction towards an open-world and non-linearity.
New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo DS) for the Nintendo Switch.
Too soon, man. Most of us are still recovering from the oversaturation of the NSMB series.
