And with that every must have Wii U game has now been ported. I do wonder what they will rework those game pad sections into, maybe split screen. Nintendo did not own the IP then.

I would consider Super Mario 3D World a must-have, the game is vastly-underrated in how polished and varied it is in gameplay. Also, I never played Xenoblade Chronicles X, but I know it has its fans.

Pikmin 3 and Fatal Frame as well.

And the HD versions of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, but yeah, that's about it. I rushed to snap up a Wii U and some key games right near the end of its life cycle, but pretty much everything has been rendered obsolete at this point. Laughing

Not a fan of Platinum doing this but they are now freelancers or something. The asking price is at least low. The game is alright but nothing special. I only finished it and Astral Chain out of obligation as they are short-ish. A 6/10 to both.

Microsoft owns Scalebound IP for all that care, so who even knows what Platinum actually has that is 100% their own. Even Bayo got convoluted due to how her 2d and 3rd game got funded by Nintendo.

Game sold nearly 6 million copies that's not underrated.

Plus it didn't exactly break new ground being a sequel of a 3DS game that was much better.

Don't know why,as them using Kickstarter to fund it is much better then them spending money out of their own pocket and then potentially getting burned twice.

The fact that the game may very well hit all it's goals (weird as some of them are) shows that making the original game exclusive to the WiiU wasn't a good idea.

Underrated as far as Mario games go.

Yeah, it only had non-stop new gameplay options. Seriously, that's what happened, the developers just decided to let all their ideas be put in the game, and it makes the levels feel constantly fresh as new little gameplay tweaks are always showing up. Also, it's really doesn't feel like a sequel to Land to me, the environments are far more interesting (obvious since it's a console game over a handheld one, but still) and there's 4-player co-op.

Honestly 3D Land was pretty standard to me, just felt mostly like the New Mario Bros. game but in 3D, I wasn't impressed that much. I heard the post-game is where many say it picks up, but I wasn't feeling like playing through a game I'm only mildly enjoying just to "get to the good stuff".

While I would say Odyssey and Galaxy were better, I do think 3D World is far better than many give it credit especially those who didn't play it. That first trailer didn't help as the game just looked like New Mario Bros. but in 3D, but the 2nd trailer did a better job showing the wide variety of gameplay.

Also 3D World has Captain Toad levels which is a huge plus for me.

My first reaction to this news was "Wow, Platinum really is the Trigger of video game studios."

The former Super Best Friends pushed 101 for years as unanimously one of their favorite games of all time. If only I could be confident that I'd be able to appreciate it. Razz

I wouldn't go that far as at least 3D Land can stand on it's own whereas New Super Mario Bros DS feels like a much worse game after you play New Super Mario Bros. Wii......And then Nintendo kept making new NSMB games just further diluting both games.

Isn't it cheapened somewhat by the fact they made Captan Toad Treasure Tracker afterwards?

Personally I’d also like to see Switch ports of Star Fox Zero and Paper Mario Color Splash.
