I think that the delay with Nintendo's Virtual Console service to the Nintendo Switch is quite a tactical one. Not only does this allow the gamers and the press alike to concentrate and focus on new hardware but it allows the Switch to stand on its own two feet for the meantime to get it's own identity.
With that said, we all know some sort of subscription gaming service is coming later this year. An interesting factor with this is that Nintendo are finally editing some of their classics to incorporate online play.
I am just trying to think of a handful of games that would be good online.
Pick a couple of games and explain why you think that they'll be great online!
Dr Mario /Tetris
These puzzlers are well-known IP's in their own right. Now newer iterations of these games have incorporated online play into their core games but I wonder if people would prefer to stick to the originals. If this could be as addictive as Tetris DS then I can't see why not and I really wonder how many people actually picked up Dr Luigi anyway??
Ubisoft's brilliant racing game came with a variety of mini games and multiplayer modes. The 'soccer' mode to this game would trounce Rocket League any day! A fantastic game and something I have not seen released on any of the various marketplaces.
Super Mario Kart
The game that started it all, furious action in two player, this game is perhaps less forgiving than more recent Mario Kart's, yes, you may get a Star if you are in 8th place but if you are too far behind its a bit too late. This game could be really grueling if all 8 racers were superb racers. They could also add each unique item to the player. I've always wanted to shit magical cupcakes that make players shrink!
I could name a few other Nintendo racers I really want but I'd rather hear what other people have got to say on those franchises.
P.S I think this could be my first new thread since 2012! :O
