N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

Yesterday, we heard that Nintendo may be plotting an N64 Classic Edition. With the NES Classic Edition in the books and an SNES version on the way, this is hardly surprising. If the SNES Classic Edition sells well (and we all know it will), then Nintendo will almost certainly produce an N64 Classic Edition. With that in mind, here are eight games that I think should feature on such a retro console.

Super Mario Odyssey won’t have game over screens

With each new Super Mario game, Nintendo seems to focused on doing things differently than other games in the series.

This is how Super Mario Bros. would have play in the real world

Super Mario Bros has been used, abused, and repurposed for so many things, it's not really a surprise to hear about it being used in an augmented reality setting. In fact, we're more surprised it took this long for someone to do it. At least 28 year old developer Abhishek Singh can enjoy that fame for a while as news of his adventures spread far and wide. Yes, this is a somewhat modified version of the first level of Super Mario Bros if it had been something that happened in our real, 3D world.

Super Nintendo World’s main attraction will be Mario Kart

Super Nintendo World’s main attraction will be Mario Kart

It’s cool to be Nintendo again, in no small part thanks to the success of the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps it would have been a different story if the Switch became an embarrassment instead. Perhaps Nintendo would have shelved its plans for theme parks then. But since that gloomy scenario didn’t come to pass, it’s full steam ahead for the first Super Nintendo World. And, unsurprisingly, it will center around the company’s most iconic character and his crazy driving antics in Mario Kart.

Animal Crossing mobile delayed for Fire Emblem Heroes

Animal Crossing mobile delayed for Fire Emblem Heroes

Nintendo is doing something radically new and out of character: it is responding swiftly to trends. The Japanese gaming giant, notorious for its snail-paced reaction times, has just announced a slight change in its mobile game schedule. Perhaps seeing more profits to be made in somewhat more popular franchises, Nintendo is delaying the launch of the mobile version of its Animal Crossing game. Though disappointing, it’s for a good cause, as it will be focusing its resources on the Android launch of Super Mario Run in March and, more importantly, the launch of the Fire Emblem Heroes mobile game on Thursday.
