Nintendo Bringing Back a Classic Franchise this Week?

By Jorge Ba-oh 30.09.2008 18

An interesting claim has circulated the web today that Nintendo will be showing off modern take on a classic franchise this week.

Gamekyo has taken a sidestep from the impending news of a new DS model and announced that Nintendo will be revealing a new game for Wii, but not any old or casual game malarkey Ė instead an old franchise that everyone is supposedly waiting for.

Kid Icarus? Pilotwings? Punch Out?

If Nintendo are to be showing off some new material this Thursday, (insert shock smiley here) what franchise do you feel will make the cut?

there are so many franchises that nintendo should consider bringing back.

waverace, 1080,(my opinion)

punch-out pilotwings and kid icarus. (like jb said)

with both the motion plus device (announced at e3) and the balance board it is possible to bring those franchises back.


Mario, Mega Man and Rayman FTW!!!

Angst Icarus confirmed for Brawl.

Nintendo really need to get their finger out and bring out a hell of a lot more games. We're sitting here with Animal Crossing, Pikmin 3 and Wii Music as the Nintendo games to look forward to.

Where's a decent Mario Party (not 8, as that was way too rushed)? A next-generation Mario Tennis? We need a load more games - there's a load of opportunity but we're not hearing anything of it at the moment.

By this time next year there really should at least be a new StarFox, F-Zero, 1080 etc - those games aren't as demanding as say, Mario or Zelda, so come on gawd dammit!

There's plenty of really good franchises that they could make a new game for, but they still haven't mentioned anything yet.

I'm hoping for a new Starfox, F-Zero, Donkey Kong, Pilotwings and a new Wave Race could be good too.

I sincerely hope that it is not Punch-Out...I find that game to be quite boring.

Bring on Kid Icarus!Smilie

Duck Hunt.

I am guessing Icarus or PunchOut Wii.

If it was PunchOut I don't see it being sold as a full game, unless Nintendo expand it so much it doesn't seem like PunchOut anymore.

Because of that I think it'd be a Wiiware game.

One of the sporty ones could work fairly well, like people have mentioned... 1080, Wave Race, Pilotwings - I'd certainly be interested in playing any of those.

Well they only had one game so technically not a franchise but...

Ice Climbers!!!!Smilie


It better be Kid Icarus

Bundle it with the Wii Zapper. 1,000,000,000,000,000,000+ sales

PUNCH OUT

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562
