New Star Fox
Definitely, definitely want this on Wii U. Co-operative offline and online play, traditional levels (akin to S64/LL). Upgrades/experience points perhaps. Tonnes more planets, different playable characters with varying attributes.
Zelda: Majora's Mask remake
Really gotten into this again recently, would be great on Wii U. Perhaps add bonus dungeons, few more side quests and decent cinematics. Shorter and sweeter to remake than other Zeldas methinks.
A separate four-player co-operative would actually be amazing. Split-screen? Each player takes on a form of Link and would have to solve puzzles, can be CPU controlled possibly. Think Four-Swords but with puzzles and combat that require each of the forms. Boom!
Pokémon Stadium/Snap hybrid
Would love an all-inclusive Pokémon package. Doubt Nintendo/GameFreak would do a full on 3D RPG, but another solid battle game, with loads of mini-games, online play and a separate Pokémon Snap feature would be ace.
Mario Kart U
Nintendo would be insane, absolutely insane not to release one so we know it's coming. But I'd like to see them really delve into fan-service and have at least 16 cups - 8 retro, 8 new, instead of the usual 4 new/4 old. There's so many Mario Kart titles now, so it's really needed!
The same great online play as in MK7, leaderboards, track editor. Money made!
Mega Man HD Anniversary
Hand drawn anthology of all the classic Mega Man games, redone musically/graphics in specatcular HD 2D. Nuff said. I'd be a Hard Man.
Soul Calibur V: Director's Cut
They took a huge dump over Soul Calibur with this one. Really disliked the roster, so if the Wii U got a port with more of the classic characters brought back (through the magic of resurrection), it would be fab.
Bring back the Yungsung/Hwang character type.
Not sure what you can really do with the Gamepad except some shortcut keys and a command list, though it would be useful!
Mario Party Anniversary
Though I haven't played MP9 yet, I dislike the concept. Bring back the tried-and-tested approach in an all-out anniversary edition. Would be amazing to have the best boards brought back (at least 30 in all), with a unified system (3 items per player, shops, duels/battle games) and the top mini-games from each (at least 150 mini games?). We're a generation ahead so it really has to go beyond 5/6 boards and a limited set of mini games. Now that Nintendo are handling it, possibly.
Spectator and online mode would be so good, but I honestly can't see it happening.
Art Academy U
I would be very surprised if Nintendo don't make this. Bring art to the living room, properly! THQ's efforts were average at best, and the U could do so much better. More tools, full HD rendering, share with U buddies, public (moderated) galleries, specator mode (see what friends are drawing), share replays. Export to JPG/BMP (come on!) and share on social networks.
Rival Schools 3
Brilliant Capcom fighting series that just died off with the Dreamcast. Only a few cameos here and there. Would be great to include full animé cinematics, hand-drawn characters and a solid online mode.
Dead or Alive
Why no Wii U? Hinted but still not official. The 3DS one was great, preferred it over Street Fighter as it's faster, more fluid and combos work far better. Online, full roster, great visuals. Easy!
Mario Galaxy 1&2 HD
Easy remake, buff up those textures and just pump out the love. Nintendo would insist on some tablet features. Maybe some touch-screen puzzles and enhancements. Might be tricky to perform the spin though (shaking the pad is good, but still fine to do from what I've tried).
Mario Tennis U
3DS one seemed like a right cop-out. Wii U one needs more than just basic tennis modes - a decent RPG campaign/Tennis town to wander about in, online play/tournaments and challenges. Spectator modes, tennis "ghosts" etc.
Final Fantasy VII
Can't see it happening somehow, but would be so good. Infact any FF for that matter would be ace - touch screen commands, map, etc. Dream setup!
Chrono Trigger Remake
No description needed. Even if 2D with hand-drawn sprites and painted backgrounds, count me in!
Sonic Adventure 3
Revised engine like Unleashed/Colours, with same great story mechanics and additional characters in Sonic Adventure. Online leaderboards/races would be wicked too.
Conduit 3/High Voltage shooter
They did really well on Wii from the tech they had available, so a follow-up or a new shooter completely would be awesome to see given the boost in specs. Touch control features, online play. Sweet stuff. Maybe hard to do traditional control and Wii Remote though, so the GamePad may just turn into a side accessory/computer thing.
Phoenix Wright Anniversary
First three games remade in HD, plus additional cases non-related to the main arc. Download perhaps?
Jump Ultimate All Stars U
Bung in all those favourite Jump manga stars into an HD brawler and you've sold the entire animé community. Make it so!
Grand Theft Auto V
A system seller I'm sure, but I doubt it somehow until Nintendo proove it viable. Dynamic map, online play, DLC missions. Rear view mirror? Sweet!
Why no Wii? Nintendo doesn't need to do hugely revolutionary things to make a decent game. Series really needs to be resurrected on Wii U - online play, tonnes of racers, jaw-breaking visuals and cheesy story. Do it!
Coders! Artists! Story writers! This would be the perfect tool to do so, even if released as some homebrew, would be awesome. Use Mii as characters? Building blocks to making simple games, depth to go further and learn coding fundamentals. Nintendo would create both educational/fun and add that bit more to a tricky industry to get into.
Marvel vs Capcom
My two favourites in one place? Wii got neglected, so Wii U must be possible. MvsC 4 or some expanded version of 3 would be ace. Some create-your-own-hero on the touch pad would be a neat exclusive feature.
Wave Race HD
Another that needs to return in full - spectacular scenery, online racers, course creator. Wii U GamePad with dynamic map showing buoy positions/shortcuts. Leaderboards and the like.
