Nintendo has done a great job of releasing a wide variety of excellent games on Switch, covering several key franchises. However, with an IP library as vast as Nintendo’s, it is no surprise that several series still have not received a brand new game on Switch. Series like Pikmin and Mario Kart have only received ports of their (admittedly excellent) Wii U titles, while IPs like Kid Icarus and Star Fox have not seen any release at all (unless you count Starlink for Star Fox). What Nintendo IP would you most like to see get its first brand new Switch game?
I need a brand new Pikmin title as soon as possible. Pikmin 3 Deluxe on Switch was excellent, but all it did was make me hungrier for a brand new experience. Over the course of the trilogy, Pikmin has quietly become one of Nintendo’s finest series, and I sincerely hope that we are able to continue watching it grow sooner rather than later. Ever since the quiet confirmation that Pikmin 4 was nearly done in 2015 (!)I’ve waited patiently, but by now I understand that something must have derailed that project. Hopefully, it can one day get back on track.
