For me it has got to be the next 2D Zelda. I'd like it to be less like the DS ones and something closer to Four Swords Adventures but with the focus being on single player. The last game that truly fit that for me was probably Minish Cap.
Whatever Retro's next game is. Whatever Sakurai's next game is. Whatever Next Level Games' next game is (assuming it's a Nintendo property).
As for games that have been confirmed but unseen, I'm curious what the imminent "Kirby 3DS Multiplayer Game" will be. Nintendo recently re-confirmed that it's coming this fall, and yet all we know about it is that it exists.
@J.K. Riki I'm very curious what they'll do with the next main Animal Crossing game. I felt a bit disappointed with New Leaf since it still seemed too familiar, so I'd really like a shakeup for the series like what you suggested. In particular, I'd like to see them expand on the multiplayer and community aspects of the game, since those two things are why I like the games. The minigame island in New Leaf was easily the best new feature, so I'd like to see more stuff in that path.
@nate38 So that 3DS Kirby does exist? I thought maybe it got confused with the new Switch game. Weird how it's only a few months out and we know nothing about it.
@Stephen In all seriousness, I'll probably start anticipating it once some actual information is shown.
@Mop it up Yeah, originally I thought the new Kirby 3DS game was morphed into the Switch project, as that also looked very multiplayer-focused. But when Kirby's Blowout Blast came out earlier this month, they reconfirmed Kirby 3DS coming this winter and Kirby Switch in 2018 via Miiverse. Which would be three mainline Kirby games in three years, kinda nuts.
I'm not sure how much they'll shake things up at this point, AC seems to be their most "marginally upgrade it and be done" series of all of them. But yeah, let's hope they come with some fresh ideas! Would be amazing to see a leap forward in the series, for sure. I'm not sure any of the games ever really did that. They all seem like just (good, fun) upgrades of the last one. Mario Galaxy to Mario Galaxy 2 vs. Mario 64 to Sunshine, for example.
Oh, and I must play a Bloodborne 2. Bloodborne has such a captivating world and premise that I feel you could get several of games' worth of content out of it before things get old. More monsters, more trick weapons, more cool costumes, better chalice dungeons, more twisted environments. A trilogy is definitely feasible, but at least a second game. I get the argument that a sequel isn't really necessary and may water things down or make he original feel less special, but I disagree. If the sequel takes enough of its own creative direction this shouldn't be a problem.
Fair enough! It definitely uh, "borrowed" a lot from the SNES classic, haha. And yeah, you can get *most* of the items straight away (with some rupee grinding)...the base-level, pro-dunk version of them, anyway. The rest of the items and the best versions of them are found later in the game.
Still, to each his own. Can't knock you for your preferred choice anyway; Minish Cap is pretty great.
