Zelda, Mario, Kid Icarus, Star Wars and more.
Kid Icarus Returns
A remake of the vintage NES platformer has long been rumoured, and online chatter is rife with speculation that we might finally see something this year (although there are inevitably just as many claims that "it's been cancelled”.). Pit the Angel and his arrow-flinging adventures are probably a bit of a mystery to anyone who wasn't born in the 80s or earlier, but we still think he could have his place in the games market of 2009. Indeed, bringing back a classic character would be a good way for Nintendo to tap into gaming nostalgia while still providing something fresh - providing it was any good, naturally.
Details of Bethesda's mystery game
Thanks to the rampant success of Fallout 3, Bethesda is riding a massive wave at the moment. It's a great big wave, with lots of momentum and strange sealife hidden in its watery depths, and we'd like to see it carry the Wii along like an abandoned surfboard, cruising towards the Beach of Happy Fun Time. To be more precise, we want to know more about the mystery Wii game that marketing director Sean Brennan hinted at earlier this week while talking to Gamesindustry.biz. Brennan strongly suggested the product will be adult-themed in some way; Wez says he'll cry if it turns out to be a Fallout game - presumably from all three of his eyes.
