HD Remakes I want Nintendo to make

HD Remakes done right...

So a while back Nintendo announced an HD Remake of Wind Waker, a game I've always wanted them to remake and holy crap did it look awesome:

Wind Waker HD

                             It was really thanks to the Almighty Helix fossil for WWHD...

It was one of the games I wanted to see in HD and Nintendo redid this game, they really love me. I still think is the best remake ever, next to Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver. But then I was wondering, what more games would I love to see get the HD treatment? Well that's where I come in, and I thought about which games would benefit from an HD facelift because Nintendo seems to be doing HD Remakes the right way. Well here are the Nintendo games I think would benefit from an HD Remake...,Fr,De,Es,It)-9.jpg

Star Fox Adventures/Assault HD: Nintendo doesn't want to give us a new Star Fox game, so why not remake one if not both of these? I would say Star Fox 643D but how many times do we need to see that one? I know it's the best one but we reccently saw a remake of that one. Plus I'm sure not that many people know those, heck these games could find a new audience with the newer gen and if they sell well it might give a sign to Nintendo to make a new Star Fox game. Plus Assault had a fun multiplayer mode, imagine if they gave that an online mode? That would be sweet. Plus both of these games look good, even today, especially Adventures, now imagine in HD?



Super Mario 64: You'll be seeing alot of Mario here. This is basically the one game that showed you how it's done, how to make a 3D platformer, it's the best platformer. Of it's time. Right now it's highly regarded as the best of the 3D Mario games but here's the problem: the controls are dated by today's standards. They came out with a remake in 2004, that was 10 years ago and I thought it was a great remake, it was my favorite remake at the time. But the problem was that Super Mario 64 was built along the analog stick, the DS didn't have any. While I appreciate the new graphics and new playable characters, the game lacked the analog movement. It's been 10 years since Super Mario 64, I think it's about time it got the HD treatment, with modern control, but keep the content from the DS version.



F-Zero GX: This is my favorite F-Zero title and the best one to date. It's one if not, the fastest game ever. The only nitpick I have is the music, it was fine but I preffered F-Zero X's metal styled music. It's a really great game, infact it still looks really good today. But since Nintendo doesn't want anything to do with F-Zero, why not remake this one? It would look really good in HD, plus if they add online that would be cool.

Metroid Prime Trilogy: I think the Metroid Prime Trilogy is my favorite sci-fi trilogy, it's just so good, alot of people loved 1, thought 2, was okay, and 3 was better than 2. I like 3 more because that one was really fun and added alot of cool new things. Those games look really good and not alot of people have the Trilogy collection, so remaking this would be cool. Plus with Miiverse, those friend voucher thingy's would be improved. It would even look really good in HD plus they could add the scanning on the gamepad, this series has alot of potential on the Wii U.


Twilight Princess

LoZ: Twilight Princess: This one is tied with Wind Waker as my favorite Zelda games in the series. Wind Waker HD looked so good in HD and one game that might benefit from an HD remake it's this one. The game almost looks like an HD game already so I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to remake, Nintendo even said they were experimenting with this one in HD so there must be an alpha or beta build of it in HD at Nintendo. Give it all the gamepad functions WWHD had and improve the graphics.

Super Mario Galaxy 1&2: I love both of these games equally for different reasons but what if they got an HD re-release? I know they are pretty reccent so who knows? The games already look good enough but I'd rebuy them.


Super Mario Sunshine: This one is the 3D Mario game everyone has at the bottom, the one that is liked the least. I loved it, I thought it was an awesome game and it was the reason I needed a Gamecube. I don't understand all the hate it got, it was a pretty great game. It really nailed the feel of being at a tropical resort and this is the closest we'll get to Mario platforming in a city in the Mushroom Kingdoom or in Mario's world. Like I said alot of people hated the game for reasons I still can't comprehend, but remaking it in HD would be awesome. The game had a cel-shaded style to it, so it wouldn't be too hard. Plus Pinna Park and Ricco Harbor kicked ass, especially Corona Mountain and it's theme.

So what games do you want Nintendo to remake? Thanks for reading and later.

I really want to see Nintendo remake 64 on the Galaxy engine, or an updated one that uses the graphical prowess of Wii U. Love the levels, but man the controls have aged horribly. Might not be a bad idea for 2016 with its 10 year anniversary. Also would love to see a Galaxy HD collection and wouldn't mind Zelda or Prime in HD

Same here, the game is great but the controls are terrible now, and I think they made it worse on the DS. It would require alot of effort but it would be awesome if they redid it. And I think it would be it's 20th anniversary if it came out in 1996, 10th anniversary if we're talking about the DS remake. I'd love those too.

Couldn't agree more with your selections, specially Starfox and F - Zero, my mind is finding it hard to stray from a Majora's Mask 3d remake though

Captain N

I'd love Star Fox and F-Zero too but we'll have to wait for a while. And I'm guessing we'll see MM3DS at Nintendo's Drect thing.

Those are all really good ideas!  How about adding Kirby 64 HD to the mix?  The original was fun, but graphically it looked like butt.

Thanks I knew  as missing one game, Kirby 64 would be neat to see again remade in HD. And Maybe Kirby's Aire Ride.

Cary Woodham

Not 'maybe.'  DEFINITELY Kirby Air Ride!

Captain N

06/08/2014 at 09:04 PM

Unless they made a sequel! But yeah, that game was really fun.

Prime 2 is awesome.

I agree here with Star Fox and Twilight Princess. I imagine that the latter in HD would look like Demon and/or Dark Souls in the darker parts.

Captain N

Alot of people think MP2 is just okay, I don't know since I never beat it. And good point, it could look like Demon/Dark Souls because that's the vibe I get from Twilight Princess' artstyle.

I concur with most of this. I dunno that I'd say Sunshine has a cel-shaded look, but I sure did love the game.

Cool. I know, it just had this distinct style to it that made it look kinda cel-shaded.

Yeah, I know what you mean, although to me it looked more like a watercolor painting in a few places.

A New Star Fox Game and F-Zero is absolutely needed.

A HD remake of TLoZ: MM, Viewtiful Joe and not that it'll ever happen but MGS: Twin Snakes.

Captain N

06/08/2014 at 09:03 PM

They are but Nintendo l being Nintendo afterall :/ I'd love to see remakes of those games too and who knows, maybe we'll see Twin Snakes at some point.

Pikmin 1 and 2 would be nice. Also Paper Mario Thousand Year Door, although it's pretty much perfect as is. . . Oh yea, and Diddy Kong Racing. That could have really big environments with a lot more detail than the N64 version.


06/09/2014 at 07:59 AM

I'm playing through Super Mario Galaxy for the first time at the moment and really enjoying it. Saying that though, for me, it's too recent to warrant a HD re-release. If they're gonna give anything a HD facelift, I'd rather it be something more old school. If it was my decision, I'd say Pokemon Snap!

An HD remake of Super Mario Sunshine would be so cool, that's for sure.
