What Nintendo franchise needs an upgrade?

Who doesn’t love the weekend? When mine comes around I usually like to pull out one of my classic gaming consoles and give them a whirl, much like Blake has been doing lately. This weekend during one such play session I popped in a game, closed the game-flap on my NES, and thought to myself, “Wow! Why hasn’t this game been released again!?”

What was that game you ask? StarTropics!

If you haven’t played StarTropics, you can grab it on the Virtual Console right now! Think of it as Zelda meets Adventure of Lolo meets a yo-yo.

Even though the game was never released in Japan, I think Nintendo had a hit back in 1990 and StarTropics deserves a revival. As many Infendo readers have pointed out in the comments, Nintendo has been too quick to re-release old games as of late; but seeing as how it has almost been two decades since the last Startropics title, I think it’s time for a new one!

Is it likely to happen? Probably not, but only e3 can tell!

What long lost Nintendo franchise do you think is most deserving of a re-boot?
