We look into the future to see what Nintendo has in store for gamers in 2008.
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's Visionary Top 5 series. 2007 has been an amazing year for gamers - some say the best ever. Will 2008 be able to match it? VideoGamer.com gazed into the crystal ball to find out what gaming's greatest minds have in store for us next year. Today we predict what Nintendo will be blessing us with in 2008... Merry Christmas!
Nintendo's big first-party Christmas 2008 title will be... Donkey Kong
That's right. We said Donkey Kong. And we're not talking about some rubbish mini-game led title either. We're talking about a fully fledged Donkey Kong title - a true sequel to the last proper Donkey Kong on N64. Of course it won't be made by Rare, who are currently owned by Microsoft. So perhaps Nintendo could keep this one in house. But what's clear is that Nintendo needs some gamers' games for next year, like 2007's Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Super Mario Galaxy and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. And we here at VideoGamer.com reckon it'll be a Donkey Kong Xmas 2008.
