See, I've been inspired to make this topic because lately, whatever new 3D platformer game I've tried to get into, it just doesn't seem to satisfy me. It's missing something. A Hat In Time is the perfect example of a great modern 3D Platformer in my opinion and I hope to see a sequel of some kind soon.

Alright, so onto the list. Can be 2D stuff as well.

Well, there's a bunch for me seeing as I'm such a fan of the genre. I think realistically I'd like to see another 3D Rayman game. (The games are great as 2D sidescrollers but being 3D once again would just change things up a little.

I'd love to see another Sly Raccoon game. Thieves in Time was fantastic...it's time for another one!

This last one's a mixture of both 2D & 3D. I know it'll probably never happen but some kind of a reboot of the Klonoa games. I've only ever played the Wii game and while it's not my favourite, it is fun.

Well Nintendo is always worth mentioning. Realistically I can only hope for the Galaxy games to get Switch remasters.

For new from Nintendo, a few things I just didn't enjoy about Super Mario Odyssey, it's the first big budget 3D Mario game I didn't really click with since Sunshine. Hope the team behind Odyssey goes in a different direction. Something with more focus on core platforming.

On another note would like a Tearaway 2, or a spiritual successor to Tearaway. However I know Media Molecule are busy with Dreams, and look to be for a longtime. Shame, it's probably my favorite game by the studio. Dreams in way at the bottom.

One of the Klonoa games will likely get a Switch remaster in the near future from Namco; they've done one for Mr Driller and Katamari. Both fantastic ports may I add! A new entry for any of these is unlikely, I assume Namco is testing what IPs are still relevant in 2020, and making some easy money.

Banjo-Kazooie without a doubt. There is so much fanfare for that franchise I'll never understand why Microsoft is ignoring all of it. Even if they just give it the Spyro/Crash treatment and do a remake of the original 2 games, I guarantee it would sell like hotcakes.

Yeah. That'd be a good excuse for me to play them from the beginning. I only ever played one of the games on the GBA.

I want a new Sands of Time style Prince of Persia. Still my all time favorite 3D platformer.

Also, would it kill Sega to make a new Sonic as good as Colors/Generations?

If you have an Xbox the current HD Remasters honestly hold up pretty well on their own if you're interested. But yeah, it would be fantastic to get a full on remake.

Banjo for sure but if you don't want to wait and you have a PC, check out Jiggies of Time. It is a Banjo Kazooie Game set in Ocarina of Time's world and it is really something

Croc and Jak and Daxter are the biggest ones that come to mind. Banjo or Conker would bee cool. Another 3D Donkey Kong would be fun too.

I'd be curious to see a more modern take on the Jak series without the godawful, frustrating controls and mission design of 2 and 3.

Rayman hasn't gone but it would be nice to see a transition back to 3D.

If you've got an Xbox the modern HD Remasters really preserve up pretty properly on their very own if you're fascinated to find the List of Best Blenders to Make Powder 2020. But yeah, it would be notable to get a full on remake. See here more detail https://blendinggadgets.com/best-blender-to-make-powder/
