Super Mario Galaxy Features for Wii

On: Wii

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.

AND PBLIVE, yes, Star Fox Adventure was a good game. I really liked it. I thought it was nice and colorful, and fun as well. If you could take out the part where you fly the ship at the end, the game would have been a 10...

More promise for the Wii, this is great news, Hey how about Sega Rally, or better yet, SHENMUE. Put the Shenmue series on Wii, and watch the units fly.

Pilot Wings series, Space Station Silicon Valley and Goldeneye on VC and a new Pilot Wings game.

A decent Star Fox game (though Adventure wasn't all that bad).

Pokemon Gold & Silver is the important one for me this year from Nintendo.

Mario and Zelda aside, I'd like to see a Lylat Wars sequel more than anything. It's absolutely perfect for Wii and motion sensing and I cannot believe Nintendo aren't working on something based on Starfox.

Lylat Wars was almost like a rail-shooter with a bit of added movement, your route was pre-defined, but you could still dodge stuff with analogue stick movement.

Wii controls would be the same but with the light gun rail-shooter style of shooting, aiming at the target with the wii remote. Shake the nunchuck in various directions to "do a barrel roll", a back flip, brake or "use the boost to chase" :laugh: whack view toggle on the c button, lasers on B, bombs on A, something special on Z... sorted.

Aside from my Lylat pipe dream, Galaxy 2 will sell systems and keep public interest in the game like Zelda wont, they might release Zelda this year as well, though. If they leave it to next year they might be releasing it at the end of a console's life again :P
