The Magic Kingdom is home to many great franchises we’ve all grown to love throughout the years, but that love hasn’t been reciprocated for Nintendo Switch owners. All we have is the uninspired Tsum Tsum party game, yet another LEGO title, and a collection of two classic games; that’s not enough! Here are some Disney games we’d love to see make a splash on the Nintendo Switch.
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX
A dearly beloved series from Square Enix, Kingdom Hearts, has not made it to our wonderful Nintendo handheld, and the 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX compilation would be a great candidate. Xbox fans have very recently been greeted to the six Kingdom Hearts games included in the package: Kingdom Hearts, Re: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 2, Birth By Sleep, 358/2 Days, and Re: Coded. And this Sanctuary of action-RPG bliss should be taken on the go with the Switch! Featuring worlds of Disney films from different eras, Sora, Donald, and Goofy thwart the darkness and go on epic adventures. What’s in store is an epic story, a thrilling combat system, and a bizarre but well done mix of Final Fantasy and the House of Mouse.
2D Platformer Disney Games
It’s purplexing how Disney’s recent animated catalog of movies haven’t received platformer adaptations yet, Tangled especially. Sean Shaptow, the Senior VP of Games and Interactive Experiences from Disney said that the company wants to “to tap into the power of creatives across the industry” at the 2020 D.I.C.E Summit.
I’d love to see a talented studio like Yacht Club Games or WayForward take on Disney properties like CAPCOM once did. Imagine a Tangled platformer with a hair whip mechanic. She can swing onto trees and other objects, jump across the scenic landscape of Corona, and use her pan as a weapon against enemies. It’s ripe for a platforming game. I hope that someone at last sees the light.
A new Disney Infinity game without the figures
Disney Infinity was cool. Creating levels with a robust in-game system, playing in a sandbox, and having Buzz Lightyear fight Darth Vader made your inner child’s dreams come true. It was a cool concept dragged down by the toys-to-life genre.
While the figures hung dry on store shelves, creativity sparked online with new levels to play every day, and each of the level packs made up for the lack of tie-in games we used to see in the PS1 and PS2 era. Disney even made a Marvel fighting game in the vein of Power Stone.
It would be cool if they brought back this idea without the figures; they could just update it with downloadable content and new levels based on recently released movies. Disney Infinity’s online servers have shut down, so it would be nice to see another developer take on the property and bring back this brilliant idea.
Marvel vs. Capcom 4
Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite was a disaster in terms of fan feedback and the poor sales the game received during the height of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s popularity.
However, with CAPCOM’s recent string of successes like Devil May Cry V and Resident Evil 2, perhaps they could get the series back on track. With Disney now owning Fox, it would be certain that the X-Men would be back in the fold as Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 once fully featured them.
While a Versus game hasn’t hit a Nintendo platform since 2008’s Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, we’d love to see a Marvel vs. game hit the Switch. With a new coat of paint, a fast paced combat system, and a more cartoony look, Marvel vs. Capcom 4 could win back the hearts of fans around the world, if done right. I’m ready to get taken for a ride.
