Top 10 Nintendo Games that Most Need an HD Remake

Picture this: all your old favorites, complete with the nostalgia of the good old days, but reimagined in dazzling high definition. Yes, we're talking about those classic Nintendo games you spent countless hours with, coming to life in an entirely new way. Imagine, those 8-bit graphics that once seemed so revolutionary, now replaced with vibrant, dynamic, and truly immersive visuals that make you feel like you're right there in the game.

So, what are the Nintendo games that most need an HD remake? We all have our favorites and hold some games closer to our hearts. The ones that kept us on the edge of our seat, our eyes glued to the screen, our hands clutching the controller in nervous excitement.
The Top Ten
1 Super Mario Sunshine

Add new playable characters, new levels, fix glitches, and update the graphics to HD, then I think it'd be a perfect remaster.

2 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Since Paper Mario has gone in its own direction with the series since Super Paper Mario, I think a Thousand-Year Door HD remaster would be the closest we get to the Paper Mario we all want. There is not much I want changed, but maybe adding another playable character like Paper Luigi so you could switch between Paper Luigi and Paper Mario. Other than that, changing the game any further would destroy it in my opinion.

3 Metroid Prime Trilogy

For GameCube standards, this game is pretty nice looking as it is, but to be remade in HD is another story. Everyone has wanted a Metroid game for years, and now Nintendo is finally creating Metroid Prime 4. Maybe to commemorate that game, they could remaster every one of the other Metroid Prime games to make them look extremely nice.

With the fourth one on its way, an HD Trilogy remake is not too far off. Since many Switch owners have probably not had the chance to play the Prime games, an HD remake can help them get up to speed and prepare for the fourth one. This would be similar to how they did it with Bayonetta by putting the 1st and 2nd games on Switch with the new 3rd game said to be on its way as well.

4 Donkey Kong 64

Donkey Kong 64 is a game that, to me, hasn't really aged well since release. The game is great, don't get me wrong, but I don't see myself coming back often. That's why I think Donkey Kong 64 should be remastered by updating the graphics and maybe adding some new Kongs to the D.K. Crew.

This is a great idea because it could bring back a lot of old D.K. characters like King K. Rool and Chunky Kong. I think this is a great opportunity that we can't miss!

5 Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Kirby 64 would be another N64 classic that could really use some HD improvements. Kirby 64's bright and colorful quality could run perfectly in HD and would be downright beautiful. Maybe there could be a new mode titled "Meta Knight 64: The Crystal Shards" where Meta Knight replaces Kirby.

I think this would be a great game to come to Switch and one of my first choices for a remaster.

6 Fire Emblem: Sword of Seals
7 Mother
8 Super Smash Bros. Melee

This game would be perfect for an HD remake. It's a great way for modern Nintendo fans to get into the classics, and one of them would be Melee. Things I would want are new characters, maybe one extra mode, online capability, and for glory matches.

However, I would prefer Nintendo to not mess with the game's design besides upgrading it to HD and to not mess with the game's physics. I think Melee should definitely be remade.

9 Pikmin

Like the Metroid Prime Trilogy, Pikmin already looks great for GameCube standards, but instead of just Pikmin 1 being remastered, I think both Pikmin 1 and 2 should be remastered all in one package. They could use the same engine from Pikmin 3 for this remake and maybe add more Pikmin to pluck and join on your adventure.

This is an opportunity that I'd love to see implemented.

10 Final Fantasy VI
The Contenders
11 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Now, I actually never played Skyward Sword. However, every other Zelda game has been remastered thus far except this one. I know a ton of people love this game and it would be great to see in HD.

My only doubt about this happening is because of Breath of the Wild being entirely different from the other Zelda games, but that doesn't mean we can't dream.

12 Chrono Trigger
13 Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
14 Mario Super Sluggers
15 Mario Power Tennis
16 Kirby: Planet Robobot
17 Kirby: Triple Deluxe
18 The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
19 Kirby's Epic Yarn
20 The Legend of Zelda
21 Yoshi's Woolly World
22 The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
23 Pokémon Emerald

Like Skyward Sword, I have never touched this game either, but since it's one of the most beloved Pokémon games out there, and since there have been no Pokémon remakes, I think Pokémon Emerald would be a great game to remaster.

I don't know what they could do outside of HD graphics and 3D gameplay, but you never know!
