Back to game info

Nintendo's second half of 2008 is looking pretty barren for new releases at the moment, but that's sure to change. Nintendo US boss Reggie Fils-Aime has said that Wii-owners can expect "a big game for the holiday" and we're sure that game and more will be revealed at E3 in July. With that in mind we've put together the Top 10: Nintendo games we'd love to see on Wii. Sure, we won't get them all this year, but there's no harm in thinking ahead.

10. Donkey Kong

Let's admit it, Donkey Kong 64 wasn't nearly as good as it could have been. Rare delivered a great looking Nintendo 64 game that featured some great platforming gameplay, but there was far too much collecting and at points the difficulty spikes were hard to take. Since DK64 we've had some less than spectacular releases, including the awful Donkey Kong Jet Race on the Wii. With Mario Galaxy being the only true 3D platformer of note in recent years, there's plenty of room for another classic Nintendo series to make a comeback. We just hope we don't have to collect as much stuff.

9. Pikmin

Pikmin might not have the AAA status of the likes of Mario, Zelda and Metroid, but its two GameCube games proved to be among the best on the console. Pikmin's simple RTS gameplay seems like a great fit for the Wii Remote and the Wii's improved online service should allow for some online multiplayer. The key to making a great Wii Pikmin will be how the controls are worked into the gameplay and what new elements they bring to the table. It's been a while since Pikmin 2, but fans will want more than a straightforward follow-up.

I actually thought star fox adventures was pretty cool. Maybe add a bit more flying, but the story felt deeper when fox was out of the cockpit.

It is happening. Whether it is going to be a MMO game or not is another story (although my money is on it not being MMO).

All I want is a proper Starfox and Snowboard Kids and I'll be happy.

I'd love Animal Crossing on Wii too. But I'm not sure if it will happen. I've ALWAYS thought it would, but no so long back, Nintendo said that they had no plans to release any MMO's on the Wii anytime soon. But I bet they will release it eventually :D

I would like to see Wario Land to make a debut on the Wii, as that would be sure kick ass!!! Starfox FTW!!! as that's even more of a kick ass game, also throw in online gaming for StarFox that would be sweet.

Oops. Thanks for the correction. Namco was partially behind the arcade hardware, so that's the reason for our confusion.

DEFINITELY a Kid Icarus game! A Starfox game would also be cool.

I think that for established franchises, this is a good list. But it needs a new one that's supposed to be on the way, i.e. Disaster: Day of Crisis.
