As many people know Mario Kart 7 was a game that was released exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS back in 2011. Since its release Mario Kart 7 has been seen as one of the best games within its series and actually did surprisingly well in relation to sales. In fact Mario Kart 7 was the best selling game for the Nintendo 3DS and has managed to sell over 17 million copies worldwide since its release towards the start of the decade. If you walk in some stores line Best Buy you will see that the game is still available in retail which actually surprising to many pet especially considering the fact that the Nintendo 3DS is starting to lose its value due to the popularity of the Nintendo Switch.
While Mario Kart 7 was not quite as big as its 2014 successor Mario Kart 8 in relation to mainstream popularity its still considered to be one of the best racing games that Nintendo has made that was never released on a home based console. For those who have not played Mario Kart 7 the game is worth checking out and would be somewhat of an attraction in the year 2019.
As many people know the PS1 Classic has not achieved the same level of success following its release in December 2018 that the SNES Classic did following its release back in September 2017. There are many people in the gaming world who say that the lack of success that the PS1 Classic has so far is due to the selection of retro games used in the collection. While the titles such as Final Fantasy VII, Resident Evil, Twisted Metal, Tekken 3 and others are featured in the PS1 Classic games like Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot were absent which was something that many people were bummed out. Also, the 3D graphics of the PS1 Classic are far less superior than what we have today for the PlayStation 4 and it would have made more sense for Sony to make HD remakes of each game instead.
However, the fact that we even got to see a PS1 Classic at all is something that is really cool and would make a great collectors item for those who are huge fans of retro gaming in general. The PS1 Classic serves its purpose in relation to nostalgia in bringing people back to the mid 90’s with 20 different 32-bit titles that are hard to find in used game stores in this day and age and that something that would be enough to make gamers want to purchase Sony’s retro based console.
As far as upcoming releases for the PlayStation 4 is concerned there are so many cool titles that people are looking forward to seeing. Also, it was recently Ann that the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection which was published by NIS America and released for the Nintendo Switch back in November 2018 will soon be available on the PS4. For those who own a PS4 you will have the opportunity to enjoy several such as Crystalis, Ikari Warriors I & II, Psycho Solider, Alpha Mission, Vanguard and many more SNK favorites that were popular back in the 80’s. The SNK Collection contains at least 20 classic titles and is something that would definitely be an attraction on the PlayStation 4 owners who are huge fans of retro gaming in general.
As it currently stands the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is set to appear on the PlayStation 4 this upcoming March and will be one of the many high profile titles to look forward to one that console. It will be interesting to see how popular the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection becomes on the PS4 in the near future.
As many people know Master Blaster was among one of the NES that was recently announced for a release on the Nintendo Switch Online Shop on January 16th. Master Blaster will be available on the Nintendo Switch Online Shop alongside Zelda II: Adventure of Link another game that were released back in the 80’s. For those who do not Master Blaster was a run and gun platform title that was originally came out in 1988 and since then has spawned a series of sequels throughout the 90’s, 00’s and the 10’s decade on various different consoles.
Blaster Master for the NES was considered to be one of the best Metroidvania titles of time and is considered to be one the most memorable games late 80’s. There is no question that Master Blaster will definitely be an attraction on the Nintendo Switch Online Shop alongside Zelda II: Adventure of Link but we are still unsure about what the prices for both games are going to be.
As many people know it was confirmed back in 2018 that multiple Final Fantasy games were set to appear on the Nintendo Switch sometime this year. In fact Final Fantasy X/X-2 was one of those games that has been confirmed for this year and it has been recently revealed that its set to appear on the Nintendo Switch on April 16th. For those who do not know Final Fantasy X/X-2 are two popular RPG titles that appeared on the PlayStation 2 back in the early 00’s before the remastered versions of both games appeared on the PlayStation 3 & PlayStation 4 between 2013-2015.
Back in the 00’s nobody ever thought that we were ever going to see Final Fantasy X/X-2 on a Nintendo console. This is especially exciting since the Nintendo Switch is definitely in need of more solid RPG’s and with Final Fantasy X/X-2 are titles that will probably become one of the big attractions on the hybrid console throughout 2019. It will be interesting to see how popular Final Fantasy X-X-2 becomes on the Nintendo Switch as we progress throughout 2019.
As many people may already know the SupaBoy S is retro based a game system that does not get talked about as much these dats as it should. For those who do not know the SupaBoy S is pretty much the 90’s version of the modern day Nintendo Switch but only with the 16-bit SNES. If a console like the SupaBoy S was released back in the early 90’s opposes to the original SNES game system that we got back in 1990 it could have been groundbreaking. In fact, if Nintendo made a game system like the SupaBoy S back in the early 90’s it could have definitely been more of an attraction than the Sega Genesis. But then again the development and release of the SupaBoy S would probably defeat the purpose of owning a Game Boy back the early 90’s.
What made Nintendo’s Game Boy system an attraction was the fact that it was a handheld console. As far as quality was concerned there was no question that Game Boy was inferior compared to the SNES and that also would have been the case with if SupaBoy S was released 28 years ago. The release of a SupaBoy S console back in the 90’s would probably be as popular as what we have right now in relation to the Nintendo Switch.
As far as underrated fighting games from the past are concerned allot of people know that the Street Fighter EX series was underrated. The Street Fighter EX games that were released between 1996-2000 were not quite as popular as the 2D titles that Capcom released within the SF series but they were definitely interesting. Since the Street Fighter EX series it seems like we have never seen 3D games within Capcom’s legendary franchise since then and its something that the company will most likely never do again. As far as Capcom making HD remakes of the Street Fighter EX games are concerned it seems like something that will ever happen.In fact, most people enjoy the more recent games within the series such as Street Fighter V and are looking forward to seeing titles such as Tekken X Street Fighter in the future. The Street Fighter EX de should be left in the past as some of the most popular 3D fighting games of its time during the mid to late 90’s.
