Five other N64 classics that could thrive on 3DS

Postby Ali_ » 29 Aug 2012, 18:28

Waverace and Blast Corps for sure. I'd also love to see a retextured and defogged Body Harvest. 1080 has been bettered, though not by the new SSX, which I found a completely vanilla experience. SSX3 still remains the series' pinnacle. And F-Zero X just never did it for me. Wipeout, by that point, had long overtaken it's inspiration.

Agree with all apart from snowboard 1080. Altho my main concern for f-zero is wether the circle pad would be responsive enough. I always feel it to be a little too stiff.
I would like to see Pilotwings 64 too. I just couldn't get on with Pilotwings resort, good game but just wasnt really pilotwings for me.
Pokemon snap would be great with built in cameras but isn't something similar already being done with the AR scanner thingy out in october time?
Maybe a remake of the original Sin and Punishment? yes the original jap version is on wii vc and sequel is on wii but with graphics overhauled and re-tweaked and with popularity of kid icarus it could be work.

Conker's Bad Fur Day

Be next to impossible though, for the obvious reasons.

F zero would be amazing on 3ds the visuals would work well. A 3rd party 64 classic game that would be kool would be resident evil 2, bring it.

I would love and be in agreement for Blast Corps and F-Zero X but throw in Conkers, Goldeneye and Jet Force Gemini and I'm sold. Still debating if I get a 3DS for Zelda alone, as I absolutely loved OOT and MM but one or two classics as mentioned and some new innovative ip's and would get over a Vita.

I'm glad to see 1080 Snowboarding made the list, as it was definitely one of my favourite N64 games. With its elegant visuals and physics it felt like the snow-based twin of Waverace 64, except with even more demanding and realistic handling. The devs really nailed the feeling of racing on different types of snow, ranging from fresh and soft powdery snow to hardened icy surfaces. SSX on the PS2 was also a fun game, but much more unrealistic, plastic and loud.

Blast Corps is another excellent choice, although it would need even more polishing up today than it needed at the time of release. Waverace in 3D would of course be sweet and the same goes for Pilotwings 64, which I would choose before Pokemon Snap.

I was a little disappointed by F-Zero X after the jaw-dropping original F-Zero on the SNES so I could give my final remake slot to another title. But which one? The N64's library isn't that wide. A faithful remake of Goldeneye (with Pierce Brosnan as Bond) could really benefit from dual-analogue sticks, which the 3DS doesn't have without the awkward add-on. Banjo-Kazooie already has a remake on XBLA, as does Perfect Dark... Starfox 64 is available on the 3DS. As great as Mario 64 is, I don't necessarily need a remake, having played it so much. I think the original and quirky Space Station Silicon Valley gets my final vote.

Waverace would be a must have, Nintendo would be better updating & releasing these types of games than the crappy black & white game/watch & gameboy games that are twenty odd years old.

many of those titles could do with an update but i'd pay limbs / relatives for blastdozer / blastcorps on wii u or 3ds, i feel the others might be better getting a "hd makeover" rather than 3d, pokemon snap would go really well with the wii u gamepad.

As if Nintendo has the balls to release a game which requires you to purposely destroy buildings

I wouldn't buy any of those N64 games redone in 3d on 3DS, they had there time at least Zelda is a massive game with hours of gameplay.
I would love a new version of F Zero on 3DS though and puzzled why it hasn't happened yet. I would maybe consider 3DS versions of those other games if they were brand new, then again maybe not Pokimon lol
