Kinda like Lemmings. Me like; I've always loved Lemmings. Granted I knew it was similar to Lemmings but I've never seen it in action until now. Its not quite the same, though, because instead of having the characters on screen build things you're closing up hazards yourself. Personally I still prefer Lemmings to this but it does look cool.

I remember playing the first Mario vs DK a while back after reading it was the sequel to Donkey Kong GB. Was kinda disappointed, but it wasn't bad.

 

DKGB is all around one of the best platformers I've ever played though, so yeah when do we get a Virtual Console release of that? I mean, we already got boatloads of Mario stuff on Wii U's eShop, might as well add one of the best ones while we're going with that. :v

Honestly I'd like to see how it's play if they moved it out of 2D.

 

They've been able to do that with every franchise they have, they could do it with MvsDK

I second this, actualy it would be cool if they did it with the DKjr and DK3 styles as well.... I mean I had considered doing a for fun concept project about redoing the classic games with improved gameplay.... but perhaps maybe I could mess around with a concept or two of turning the original 3 DK games into 3D style gameplay

 

 

only problem with doing it with DKvs Mario is making it something more than just a constrained version of normal 3-D mario games, on the other hand DKjr and DK3 could create something quite interesting

Well if we're talking the original DKGB and the first MvsDK, you're basically asking for Mario 64 as a puzzle game. Isn't that where almost all of his parkour abilities originated at?

Yeahhh Kirby doesn't work well in 3D, guys. Remember Kirby's Air Ride City Trial when you don't have anything to ride on? Well, imagine a Kirby game just like that...

 

It would probably never work.

That's not even a remotely fair comparison. If we were to follow this logic I could just point to Sonic R and Sonic Riders as evidence to why a Sonic 3D platformer could never possibly work. They're games built for racing, of course they don't fucking control properly as traditional platformers.

Basically this, plus the fact that in air ride you would only want to get off in city trial just to mess around (and maybe do some precise exploring). As for if 3D would work in a kirby game, im not sure.

Did Kirby Air Ride even control properly as a racer? I only played it once, but I remember fighting the controls more than F-Zero X on the pipelines.

Yeah, it depends on which air ride you pick though (they all have different positives and negatives) and it had a simple enough control scheme that you could play it with one hand while drinking some pepsi.

I actually imagined a Kirby game made in a similar style to Super Mario 3D World would work really well. They move around the exact same speed as Kirby characters would; now pretty much just take that kind of level design / feel, introduce Kirby's mechanics and make the controls more beat-em-up centric and there you go. Kirby game.

Air Ride actually controlled pretty nice. Some vehicles steered really badly but that was because they had a steep learning curve to them. Most from what I remember actually controlled alright enough, though.
 
And yeah, like ZX said, it was a one-button game so it was really simple to get grips with at least for me, although that made it suffer from SA2 Syndrome (drift, charge boost, hold for a jump all on the same button). At least that didn't interfere enough to make it play badly.

You got a point there. But what I'm saying is, like Sonic R, the 3D platforming didn't work too great in those games. Although I really like Azookara's idea of making a Kirby game which is similar to the Super Mario 3D games. And now that I think about it, one of the games HAL was working on years ago was going to be a Kirby 3D platformer! Lookie

You... you don't know how devastated this game's cancellation makes me feel.

 

And without Sakurai's involvement? Whoa, HAL, what are you guys on.
