        It was a genesis, snes, and I thiiink turbografx title.. I could be wrong on the last one lol. I do remember the genesis port came with a comic book and the cover art scared me lol

        1. I dont think it was on the turbo graphics but it was on pc, best console version was on genesis, is so funny and scary that have ben thinking about this game and then this news apears.

          1. If anyone takes offence to a movie done by Sasha Baron Kohen (Or however you spell his name) I will just sit here and Lol my head off at them XD

    1. Ocarina 3D was a perfect example of a Remake. Remakes need to be like that. not those stupid HD collections. Although they should be offered digitally for cheap.

      There is a difference between a Remake and a Uprezzed port lol…. Imagine F-Zero GX getting the windwaker reborn treatment ? oh mannn…

        1. F-zero GX is one of the hardest and most satisfying games ever. Its ”super hardcore” if you will.

          And GX was agorgeous Gamecube game running at Nintendo’s trademark 60 Frames per second. But I would love to see it HD with overhauled graphics and tweeked gameplay.

          I’m gunna put my money on that being released at some stage in the same manor Windwaker is , and it will have online play.

            1. fatal frame hd collection 1,2,3,4 nintendo owns it, if they dont do it their dumb, they own it now, sometimes i hate nintendo, the wii u better make up for the shitty wii, and their not bring anything good over bullshit

      All I remember is that it was a genesis and Snes title and the cover art is kinda creepy lol. If you google “Flashback Genesis game” it should bring up a wiki article :D

  1. Sounds good to me, the more the merrier for the eshop! Also I thought I’ll throw this out as well, Wii U first party games will eventually be able to run 1080p native, The launch window is only 720p with 60fps because those are launch titles. This is Nintendo we’re talking about, they know the hardware from the back of the head, left and right. Wouldn’t surprise me if the upcoming 3D Mario will be 1080p Native at 60fps.

    1. Whilst the wiiu is more than capable , I think Nintendo will mainly opt for 720p with good AA at 60FPS ? Why because they can do more graphically , and the difference between native 720p and native 1080p is hard to notice unless you’re a geek.

      I will take Graphics and performance over just being 1080p just for the sake of it.

      You might be right , but they can make their games look even more impressive at 720p… And ofcourse everything is upscaled to 1080p anyway.

    2. Agreed, it’s just a matter of developers getting used to the hardware and exploiting it to its full potential.
      Off-topic but…do you have a MiiVerse account with that username? Think I may have stumbled across a few of your drawings if that’s the case ;)

  2. I own this for my Sega Genesis.
    Great game… At least it used to be! :p

    You know how it is sometimes, fond memories, then you go back and are like, WTH?! ;)

    1. Haha, true. I picked up Kid Icarus for the nes because I remember playing the shit out of that game when I was a kid. This time was a little different, Think I jumped a couple of times and shot an arrow and I was done.

  3. It’s like today Nintendo opened up a small door, and every game from the past, present and future is walking through onto the Wii U. This is too much, we need a break Sickr and Alba to take in all of today’s goodness; that began with the nintendo direct this morning.

        1. I know right, coming from a few months ago when nothing they did interested me. I’m using my 3DS again (They better hurry up and release fire emblem -_- ) And will be buying a Wii U within the next month or two.

  4. I have a non trolling question for you all

    Do any of you males on here has kids with different women and never married either?

  5. One of my SNES favorites. Great graphics and I liked that tree climbing in the first part of the game. Looks like another fine addition to my Wii U :)

  7. Oh man I’d love to see this. I wonder if the walking/running mechanic would be changed tho? It was one the qualities that added to the difficulty in game play back in the day.

    If this is real…..good bloody show!
