10 Games That Must be Ported to 3DS and Vita
Who would have thought buying a Nintendo 3DS or a Playstation Vita would be such a disappointment? Sure, the systems are fun, but with such a thin content library and scarce third-party support, it’s never been more difficult to get a great game on the go.
With the wait for that one of a kind game on both heldhelds seemingly never ending, Review Fix lists 10 games that should be ported over to the 3DS and Vita.
10: Champions: Norrath: This was a Playstation 2 classic and considering how mediocre Dungeon Hunter Alliance is, this game would satisfy the need for a fantastic action/RPG on the Vita.
9: Pokemon: Red/Blue: This would be a smart port just for the fact that it would be great to exchange Pokemon from the original games with all of the new games on the DS and eventually the 3DS. With some touch-screen functionality added, this could be a nice modern spin on the classic.
8: NHL 13: The game wasn’t announced for either system and that’s a shame. Considering how solid FIFA is on the Vita, owners of that system are being robbed. As far as the 3DS goes, a decent sport game period would be a huge plus to the system.
7: Darkstalkers: Games like Blazblue and Marvel vs. Capcom look fantastic on the Vita. Considering how beautiful this game was on the Playstation in the mid-90s, it would be a perfect fit.
6: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night: This game would work well on either system. For the 3DS, some type of touch-screen options would make it stand out even more. For the Vita, a straight port at a reduced price would sell like hotcakes.
5: Wild Arms: A forgotten classic on the PSone. With a lack of RPGs on the Vita, again, this just makes sense. With Sony Computer Entertainment owning the rights to the title, it wouldn’t require much work either.
4: Super Mario RPG: Arguably the greatest Mario game ever created, it deserves an introduction to a generation of gamers who have never experienced it.
3: Ico: Another forgotten game that, at a reduced price on the Vita, would serve as a more than adequate time killer.
2: Max Payne Collection: With the success of the third game in the series, a Vita port of the first two games would introduce these old-school gems to a brand new audience. Seeing how they’ve been ported to the iPad, a Vita version wouldn’t be a chore.
1: Twisted Metal: How is there not a Twisted Metal game on the Vita? Doesn’t make sense.
