Will there ever be a sequel for Sonic Mania?

When it comes down to popular 2D platform games that we have seen within the past couple of years Sonic Mania from August 2017 is a high profile title that instantly comes to mind. Sonic Mania has bee considered to be one of the best Sonic titles of the 10’s decade and it has been praised for its inclusion of gameplay & graphics that resembles the installments that were released during the Sega Genesis era from the early 90’s. If anything its hard to imagine a Sonic The Hedgehog video game that is not within the 16-bit format and seeing more entries similar to Sonic Mania would be something that many people would love to see in the near future. Shortly, after the Sonic Mania Plus expansion pack was added in July 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch many have wondered whether or not there would ever be a sequel to Sonic Mania somewhere down the line.

As it currently stands Sega has not made any announcements regarding a possible sequel to Sonic Mania. At this point Sonic Mania is almost two years old and is still considered to be new in the eyes of many people. If we do end up getting a Sonic Mania 2 game within the next few years there is no doubt that the announcement will turn many heads within the gaming world.

Would the Batman Arkham Collection be an attraction for the Nintendo Switch?

When it comes down to superhero based action-adventure video games one of the most popular Switch that that we have seen within the past decade is the Batman Arkham titles that were released between 2009-2015. Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment was on fire in the early 10’s with the its Batman games the popularity of the movies “Dark Night” and “The Dark Night Rises” definitely played a huge role on their successes as each title were huge attractions for consoles such as the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. As big as the trilogy of Batman games were during the first half of the decade some wonder whether or not they would be an attraction on the Nintendo Switch.

In theory, the Batman: Arkham Collection would be a huge success on the Nintendo Switch if Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment had any plans on bringing it to the Nintendo Switch. But at the same time the Batman Arkham Collection could also be overshadowed by first party games made by Nintendo such as Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, Super Mario Odessey, Zelda: Breath of the Wild and others. Also, adult-oriented games seem to shine more on consoles such as the PS4 and the Xbox One opposed to the Nintendo Switch which seems to target a younger audience.

Should Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door ported to the Nintendo Switch?

When we think about top RPG titles from the early 00’s that were on the Nintendo GameCube Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is one of the main titles that instantly comes to mind. Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door was initially released in July 2004. Since its release Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door Over 2.2 million units worldwide along with receiving praise from gaming websites such as IGN and GameSpot.

Also, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is probably the closest we are going to get to the original Super Mario RPG title in terms of creativity within the role playing particular genre of the series. As of right now it does not seem like Nintendo has any plans on making s new Mario RPG title for the Nintendo Switch. Bringing back the Mario RPG title from the Nintendo GameCube would definitely be something that many people would love to see in the future.

Could Final Fantasy Tactics A2 have worked on the Nintendo Wii?

When we think about popular Final Fantasy games that were available on handheld console Final Fantasy Tactics A2 is a title that comes to mind. Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was probably one of the best RPG title that Square Enix has ever made for the Nintendo DS. In fact there are some who would argue that Final Fantasy Tactics A2 could possibly have been more of a success if it was available for the Nintendo Wii back in the late 00’s.

While Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was filled interesting content and decent gameplay there are some who would argue that in terms of quality it was not quite on the same level as Final Fantasy Tactics Advance which came out in 2003. For whatever reason Square Enix decided not to make Final Fantasy games for home based Nintendo consoles back in the 00’s. It really makes you wonder whether or not if Final Fantasy Tactics A2 could have hade more success than it did if it was on the Nintendo Wii during 2007.

Should the Mega Drive Mini have the same price as the SNES Classic?

As of right now the SNES Classic is probably the most popular retro based game console in retail stores in various countries such as America, Japan along with the UK. When the SNES Classic was first released the console averaged around $79.99 as as pricing is concerned. Seeing that the original Mega Drive console was just as popular as the SNES in the early 90’s the mini version of this system should have a similar value. As of now there has not been too much talk about the pricing of the Mini Mega Drive console.

The pricing of the SNES Classic was fair in the eyes of many people since it was under $100 but slightly more than $59.99 which is generally the average cost of most new PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch games. It will be interesting to see how much the Nega Drive Mini will be priced at following its release later in 2018.

Could the original StarCraft game have worked on the Sega Dreamcast?

It’s hard to believe that the StarCraft series has been around since the late 90’s when the original game was released for systems such as the N64 and Microsoft Windows. However, one of the strangest things about the original StarCraft title was that it was never ported for the Sega Dreamcast or even the PS1 which definitely would have been better options as far as graphics and gameplay are both concerned. While the N64 was arguably more powerful than the PS1 the 128 bit Sega Dreamcast handled both 2D and 3D games better than the N64.

Also, the original StarCraft for the N64 is hardly ever mentioned since there were many 3D titles such as Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and others that overshadowed it during the late 90’s. While Dreamcast had some big games such as Sonic Adventure 1 & 2, Shemune, Crazy Taxi and others StarCraft May not have been overshadowed to the same extent as it was on the N64. The N64 was mainly built for 3D gameplay so having the original StarCraft game in the 64 bit console was somewhat questionable in the eyes of many people.

Should the Excitebike series make a return?

The original Excitebike game was one of the most well known titles for the Nintendo Entertainment System during the 80’s.  Since the 80’s the only real sequel that we have seen is Excitebike 64 which was released for the Nintendo 64 back in 2000.  When the original Excitebike game was released for the NES many people found it to be exciting yet very challenging.  Even though, Excitebike 64 looked and felt completely different from the original game many people would argue that trying to keep racers on their bikes was just as much of a challenge as ever. There were so many things about Excitebike 64 that added to the replay value of the game itself. 

The inclusion of at least 20 different tracks in season mode along with fun mini games and the ability to design your own custom track made Excitebike 64 over two times better than the original.  Since the development of Excitebike 64 many people have probably wondered why Left Field Productions never made a sequel for the Wii or Wii-U.  When Excitebike was released for the Nintendo 64 it managed to sell at least 2 million units worldwide.  If there was an Excitebike title for the Wii it could have sold at least one million units worldwide if the game developed the right way and was marketed properly.  It might be too late to get an Excitebike game for any Wii consoles but it’s not to late for the series to make a return to the Nintendo Switch.
