As many people know that Hyperkin SupaBoy S is almost like the Nintendo Switch version of the SNES.  The cool thing about the Hyperkin SupaBoy S is the fact that people can play any SNES game from the 90’s on it.  But when it comes down to popularity the Hyperkin SupaBoy S is not really on the same level as the PS Vita which definitely has better graphics and gameplay as far as 3D titles are concerned.  But when it comes down to PlayStation Vita titles there aren’t too many that can be compared those of the SNES as far as popularity is concerned.  While the PS Vita has better quality as far as graphics are concerned the replay value of many of the Vita games are not quite as high as the classics for the SNES such as Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Mega Man X and many others.

However, the Hyperkin SupaBoy S not sold nearly as many units worldwide as PS Vita especially considering the fact that its basically a hybrid version of the SNES.  In terms of which  console is better between the PS Vita and the Hyperkin SupaBoy S really depends on how each game system is looked at.  If we are talking about sales and quality the PS Vita would probably be considered a better game console.  But if we are talking about actual games for each console then the Hyperkin SupaBoy S would might have the slight advantage over the PS Vita depending on who you ask.

Could Kingdom Hearts II have worked on the Nintendo Gamecube in the mid 00’s?

When it comes down to RPG titles of 00’s Kingdom Hearts II was probably one of the most popular games of the decade.   Kingdom Hearts II was released for both the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3 between 2005-2006 and was the third game in the series following the release of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories which came out in the Fall of 2004.  Ever since the original version of Kingdom Hearts II was released for the PlayStation 2 the game had managed to sell over 4 million units worldwide on that console alone while reaching over one million on the PlayStation 3.

In terms of whether or not Kingdom Hearts II would have worked on the Nintendo GameCube is debatable.  After all, the relationship between Square Enix and Nintendo was still a bit rocky following the fallout the two entities had back in the 90’s involving the N64.  As far as graphics and gameplay are concerned many argue that Kingdom Hearts II could have definitely worked on the Nintendo Gamecube.  However, its questionable on whether or not a GameCube port of Kingdom Hearts II could have sold as much as the PS2 version of the game considering how popular the console was throughout the entire decade.  If anything Kingdom Hearts II being released exclusively for PlayStation consoles is what helped the game out in terms of sales.

Should there have been an Earthbound game for the N64?

When it comes down to popular RPG titles on the Nintendo based consoles Earthbound  was arguably one of the most popular titles within its genre during the 16 bit era of gaming.  For many years one of the biggest questions that many people in the gaming world had in regards to the Earthbound series is about circumstances involving the cancellation of Earthbound 64.  As many people know Earthbound 64 was originally supposed to released for the 64 Disk Drive in the late 90’s but for some reason it didn’t work.    As a result HAL Laboratory and Ape Inc eventually started developing the cartridge version Earthbound 64 before it was ultimately cancelled in 2000.

While many people are bummed about the fact that Earthbound 64 got cancelled in 2000 it could have been for the best in the long run.  While seeing a 3D Earthbound game would have been cool between 1999-2000 the development team had reportedly struggled throughout the who process of making the game.  Besides the use of 2D graphics and gameplay is what drew people to the Earthbound series to begin with back in 1994.  If the development team for Earthbound 64 did not feel comfortable about what the final product would look like then the game could have been a complete disaster overall if it was still released.

Will Mega Man 11 have more success than Mighty No. 9?

When Level 5 Comcept and Inti Creates developed and released Mighty No.9 back in 2016 the gaming world had believed that the game was the closest thing that we were going to get to in relation to another Mega Man game.  After all, Mighty No. 9 did have nice 2D gameplay with 3D graphics along with the fact that the game had utilized the Unreal Engine.  Despite, how cool Mighty No. 9 looked at first glance the game was criticized by many people for a variety of different reasons.  However, looking at graphics of Capcom’s Mega Man 11 some people can make the argument that the game looks similar to that of Mighty No. 9.

The idea of having  a 2D gameplay with 3D graphics was also  something that Sega has tried with the Sonic the Hedgehog 4 back in 2010.  While Sonic the Hedgehog series is mainly known for its 2D 16 bit gameplay on the Sega Genesis which made it popular to begin with Sonic 4 was not considered to be nearly as popular as its predecessor Sonic 3 in terms of quality and sales.  Looking at Mega Man 11 some can easily argue that Capcom can easily make the same mistake that the developers for Mighty No. 9 did when its comes down to gameplay.  However, Capcom rarely fails to disappoint when it comes down to Mega Man games along with the fact that the world has been waiting to see a sequel to Mega Man 10 since 2010.

Is Gran Turismo Sport the best racing game of the year?

When we think about racing games of 2017 one of the many games that stand out is Gran Turismo Sport which many people have been waiting to since Gran Turismo 6 which was released in 2013.  In terms of sales Gran Turismo Sport reported has managed to reach over 982,000 units within its first week.  Even though, Gran Turismo is a good racing game and has done great in sales there are still who are die hard fans of Forza Motorsport 7 and Project Cars 2 and feel one of those games should hold the title for being the best racing game of the year.

In terms of quality some can make the argument that Forza Motorsport 7 is just as good a Gran Turismo Sport.  However, Gran Turismo Sport was probably the most anticipated racing game of the past few years.  When it comes down to certain aspects of the Gran Tursimo Sport such as the total car count there are some people who are bewildered by the fact that game has less than 200 cars.   Not only has Polyphony Digital reduced the total car count from it predecessor Gran Turimso 6 which included over 1100 vehicles but it seems like Project Cars 2 and Forza Motorsport 7 has more cars than their respective predecessors.  Despite, the lack of cars included in Gran Turismo Sport in comparison to other games the sales for the game were impressive and has already managed to reach over one million units worldwide since its release in October 2017.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is probably one of the most anticipated fighting games of 2018.  Just about everything in Dragon Ball FighterZ looks impressive including the gameplay, graphics along with the roster of characters.   This game is expected to be released in January 2018 for the PS4, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.  However, there hasn’t been anything said about Dragon Ball FighterZ being included on the Nintendo Switch.  Having a game like Dragon Ball FighterZ on  a hybrid console like the Nintendo Switch would be something that would immediately arouse the interest of many people who currently own the game system.

While some might argue that the quality in terms of graphics for the Nintendo Switch would not be on the same level as the PS4 or the Xbox One would be very rare to have a crossover fighting title like Dragon Ball FighterZ on a game system that could also be utilized as a handheld console.  Also, when it comes down to crossover fighting games in general we don’t get a chance to see enough of them on Nintendo based consoles.

Should Sonic and the Secret Rings be ported for the Nintendo Switch?

Sonic and the Secret Rings

Sometimes its almost hard to believe that Sonic and the Secret Rings was released ten years ago on the Nintendo Wii.  When it comes down to 3D Sonic titles of the 00’s Sonic and the Secret Rings was probably one of the best.  Some people would probably put Sonic and the Secret Rings behind Sonic Adventure 2 & Sonic Colors as far as best 3D titles in the series are concerned.  Even since Sonic and the Secret Rings was released back in Spring 2007 the game has managed to sell over 2 million copies worldwide on the Nintendo Wii.

As popular as the game was Sonic and the Secret Rings was never ported for the Nintendo Wii-U in the early 10’s.  Since we never got Sonic and the Secret Rings on the Wii-U there are some would like to see this 3D platform title on the Nintendo Switch.  However, Sonic and the Secret Rings is not as popular as it was when it was first released in the late 00’s.  Plus, we have games like Sonic Mania which many people like more than a majority of 3D titles in the Sonic series.
