I was just saying to my friends a couple weeks ago that the old classic games should be revived and kept up to date. Games like Archon, Defender, Galaxian, Qix. These and others are great games that I’d like to see updated versions of. And by updated versions, I mean the same game, same gameplay, just better graphics and sound. I know that some games like Defender have been remade, but frankly, they’re not good. The developer played with the formula, changing the great gameplay. Tsk tsk. These games deserve better. These old gaming classics should be perpetually on the shelves, always available with the latest graphics. They’re just too good for this generation to miss.
Well, Nintendo plans to do just that for the downloadable games on the Revolution. Nintendo company president Satoru Iwata says:
“We are doing several experiments, including working with the original Super Mario Bros., with the new technology,” Iwata said. “The game itself and the gameplay shall be identical, but the look will be different — it’s possible that with Revolution we may be able to see the old games with new looks.”
He didn’t say what form the upgrades will take, but I think this is a great idea. Great games deserve to live on.
