2D Mario. Another Rayman. Sequel to tropical freeze - with funky kong included. And another Pikmin would be my preferences.

As a platformer/puzzle enthusiast, if this happened, it couldn't be any more perfect.

Mine too, but with a side of Metroid Prime 4 and Tears of The Kingdom. Oh, and that Tropical Freeze sequel should bring back the Kremlings as the villains, ESPECIALLY King K. Rool.

I’m doubtful about a 2D Mario game (though it is time) since they are launching Kirby Return to Dreamland deluxe this month. But I am hopeful.

What do you mean by "another pikmin"? Another than the one that they already announced to release this year?

I want a Donkey Kong game more than any other game. I'm quite sad we've not had a new game in almost 10 years.

You and me both. I'm still pissed at Nintendo for forsaking Donkey Kong on his 40th anniversary.

I love Donkey Kong more than Mario. Yes, I said it. I spent countless hours playing Donkey Kong on Wii (with a mod so I don't have to shake) and Donkey Kong on Wii U. Dare I say it, my favorite game on Wii U? Even my sister plays Donkey Kong Country 1-3 on SNES better than anyone. It's my thing!

Get the Mario Odyssey team to make the next Donkey Kong game. Remake Donkey Kong 64, I don't know, give me more! :) I'm just crazy about that ape!

Whatever we get, I want the best music of any game on the system :) Keep up the tradition.

Mostly focused on games launching the next 5 months. Hmmm. Unless it's a bunch of third party games, this makes me think they've got some first party surprises releasing soon.

Could we be getting a 2D Mario game to coincide with the movie release???

Bucket list: 2D Mario launches alongside the movie, Metroid Prime remake this spring, Advance Wars this spring, more info on TotK and Pikmin 4, first look at Prime 4.

no new hardware? :(

I'll hold off and buy Tears of the Kingdom once I can buy it for the next hardware. I don't want to pay $100 CAD twice.

You have to announce new hardware so that you can announce backwards compatibility or not.

Zelda TotK and New Wave Race.

Wave Race and Donkey Kong would make me so happy.

People forget how awesome the Nintendo wave race games are. The modern skidoo type games are awful, they look like they might be the same but have none of the old quality.
