I hope for Kid Icarus, Sin and Punishment or Ice Climbers. Especially Ice Climbers. Wiimote as giant mallet > wiimote as lightsaber IMO.

I'll have to believe him. Matt C is the person who started the ridiculous Halo DS rumours, and then backed it up with a video.

It can't be Earthbound (or should I say Mother 2) as the latest entry was only released last year. Making Mother 4 would hardly be a resurrection (Mother 3 was already a resurrection anyway). Also Matt never said it was first party so it'll be hard to tell what it is until it's unveiled.

What about Balloon Fight? I'd rather just have Kid Icarus, it seems more likely anyways, thanks to Pit's complete redesign for Brawl.

One thing we do know, if it is from a big publisher paying for hype, it will get a great score here.

IGN is always spot on with these.

I personally think it will be Ogre Battle since we have had so many rumours recently, and the last 2 franchises to be ressurected (NiGHTS, Samba de' Amigo) were similiar hinted.

As for my hopes.

Well.

I wouold love to see a number of older games make their return.

But then again this is IGN...So when does Halo come out for the DS again?

They already proved that it existed.

The original Ice Climber was a piece of crap. I'm hoping for Kid Icarus.

I don't see how Kid Icarus could be considered a major classic. Minor...sure but it seemed to me not nearly as many kids talked about Kid Icarus as the other classics of the age.

Then again...he is in Brawl...

Meh.

you still don't seem to understand the definition of rehash. Just because Peach keeps getting kidnapped makes all the games the samE?

That should be it.

One of the first games announced for the revolution was a Donkey Kong game similiar to Donkey Kong 64.

That was back in 2005.

And no it's not DK Blast.

I think it might be Kid Icarus, Ogre Battle, Chrono Trigger (OMFG YES), Skies of Arcadia. As for other possbilities:

DK isn't dead. Besides, what's the point of hoping for a good DK game when Rare is gone ?

Pikmin isn't dead nor classic

Yoshi isn't dead.

Shigesato Itoi himself made clear that he has no plans for a new Mother game in the near future.

Kirby isn't dead.

Personally I was hoping for a quality 3rd party franchise, but Kid Icarus would be good too.

If its a classic franchise it probably means that it hasnt been done in 3D yet. In which case I can almost garentee you that its going to be PunchOut! becausea the relicened or retrademarked or soemthing like that the name.

I don't think it is Pikmin because I wouldn't consider that a classic franchise that needs to be resurrected since it had 2 games last generation on the GC.

I don't think it would be the Mother series cause Mother 3 was released in Japan no too long ago, so it's not like that is a dead franchise.

My three picks would be a Donkey Kong platformer, Punch Out, or Kid Icarus.

I personally think Nintendo has an excellent opportunity to break away from its colorful character mold with Kid Icarus. All they would have to do is drop the kid part and just call it Icarus where you would play as Pit all grown up. The game has an excellent story to where you could make it dark and epic.



This pic was when Kid Icarus was first rumored to be in development when the Wii was still known as the Revolution and before we even knew what the controller looked like. I think it would be an unsuspected but great move coming from Nintendo.

But I will enjoy the game no matter what art direction Nintendo decides to go in.
