As well as boasting a treasure trove of original titles, it's no secret that the Nintendo Switch is something of a port machine, giving a number of fantastic Wii U games that were overlooked due to the console's poor performance. Alongside, you've got NES and SNES classics - for any gamer willing to shell out on the monthly subscription fee, that is.
Still, there are obvious gaps in the system's library. While some of the games on this list might seem like wishful thinking, the recent announcement of a sequel to Pokemon Snap 21 years after the original proves that anything is possible.
Indeed, a fair few of these games have been rumoured regularly, with fans still hoping for their official announcement in an imminent Nintendo Direct. Some are way overdue a re-release, being more obscure entries in popular franchises which would no doubt sell well while making certain NES titles more accessible to newer fans.
From one-off curios that deserve a bigger audience to re-releases which could potentially revive a dead franchise, here are just a handful of classic Nintendo games that need to come back.
10. The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle Of Ages, Oracle Of Seasons
While the Nintendo Switch port of the classic Legend Of Zelda GameBoy Color title, Link's Awakening DX (itself a port of Link's Awakening on the old school GameBoy), was well received by fans and critics alike, it seemed like something of a strange choice for a remake.
Consistently cited as one of the best titles in The Legend Of Zelda series, Link's Awakening is adored by fans, and many had already experienced the classic top-down adventure. The Switch port, as gorgeous as it is, didn't do much to appeal to gamers who had already played the title to the death, especially given Link's Awakening ubiquity within the franchise.
Instead, Nintendo should have re-released the often-overlooked Oracle Of Ages and Seasons, the only games designed specifically with the GameBoy Colour in mind. Utilising a Pokemon-style two-game system, each provided a unique adventure, and both are worth playing to get the full experience.
Each following their own parallel storylines, items obtained in Ages can be transferred to Seasons, and vice versa. What's more, each game focuses on distinct aspects of the Zelda series, with Seasons being more of a combat-oriented game while Ages hones its puzzle design.
Containing some of the more unique and memorable overworlds and dungeons of any 2D entry in the series, the lands of Holodrum and Labrynna are way overdue a revisit. The games should be bundled in one package, potentially deepening the inter-connectivity of the titles.
