Games That Should Make A Comeback On The Wii U

Whenever a new console makes it’s appearance, the question of what games people would like to see inevitably comes up. Especially when you talk about a company like Nintendo that has a long history of successful games behind it. There is almost no force as powerful in gaming as nostalgia and people enjoy seeing classics return either in tribute or updated with modern technology. With the success of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD the question of what other games should make a triumphant return on the Wii U should be asked.


The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

This list is in no particular order which is why I had to start off with The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Really the cult hit of the Zelda franchise if we’re being honest. I remember playing the game when it came out and frankly it frightened me a little. That moon was creepy. Regardless, while The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time revitalized the series by giving us an open Hyrule to explore and a wide 3D landscape, Majora’s Mask sent the franchise on a darker path give fans a world that we weren’t used to in a Zelda game.

F-Zero GX

I love a good racing game and I have fond memories of F-Zero GX. The best part about the game was never the vehicles, mainly because they weren’t real, no you played  because of the tracks and the speed. There’s no stopping you from blazing on a track that isn’t limited to the city streets, instead there are sharp twists and turns and when you find yourself driving upside down with the world flashing by it’s hard not to get sucked into the feel of competition.

With today’s graphics we can only imagine how amazing a new F-Zero GX would look and hopefully Nintendo would consider giving us a racing game that wasn’t just Mario Kart. And let’s face it, who doesn’t want to see Captain Falcon make a true comeback in the series that made him famous.

Star Fox 64

Or any Star Fox really.  My heart goes out to the fans of this pretty much abandoned series. At least Metroid fans have a better chance of seeing the series make a showing on the Wii U because those who love Star Fox have pretty much given up on seeing the intrepid hero outside of Super Smash Bros. But I humbly ask Nintendo to consider bringing the space traveling explorer back for another go.

Fans would go crazy if they found out that this classic was getting an HD remake. If you thought that Windwaker HD was popular what till you see the reaction that would happen online if Nintendo announced a remake of Star Fox 64.


Super Mario 64

I remember the first time I played Super Mario 64 and like Ocarina of Time the game blew my mind. The colors and the 3D graphics were beyond any game that I had ever played at that point in my life. For many Nintendo fans Super Mario 64 is the prime example of what a Mario team can do when they really try and it would be amazing to see it get a fresh coat of paint.


Super Mario Galaxy

Honestly I was a little afraid at what would happen if I dared to leave this game off of the list. Luckily Super Mario Galaxy deserves all the love and acclaim that it gets. Just looking at video of it reminds me of how amazing the game looked and a shiny HD remix would make things even better. The gameplay is not only solid but outstanding and one of the best Mario games you could ever play.

And that’s it, my list of some of my personal favorite choices for games to make a comeback on the Wii U. You might disagree with me, or you might have your own ideas of what belongs here. Whatever the case maybe, feel free to comment below because who knows there’s always a chance that it could happen.

    I will go out on a limb to say that I enjoyed Star Fox: Assault quite a bit. On that note, I pray the day we see StarFox revisited comes soon, I adore that universe. A part of me seriously doubts that we’ll see the Mario Galaxies result in anything more than a duology akin to what 3D Land and World currently represent. I imagine we’ll probably be seeing a “Super Mario Universe” that’s a spiritual successor at best, the U emphasized. 😉
