I should have also mentioned Capcom in that, as they have been quite faithful to VC as well.

One company I wish was more giving in terms of VC would be Square Enix.

There was a pretty sweet FFIII remake on Ouya. I think it was a slightly updated version of DS game, but it was pretty cool. I can imagine Square Enix throwing it on because it is an easy port. (Ouya is Tegra)

In terms of niche franchises, I would love Rygar to get resurrected somehow. I also really want another Ghosts 'n Goblins game. I'd love to see the classic Midway arcade games get used somehow (I think TimeWarner has the rights) on the Switch, particularly Wizard of Wor and Robotron. And I'd like Disney to do something with Tron across all media, including video games.

Awwwwyeah Robotron! No joke, Robotron 64 is my favourite title for the N64. Really, really wanted Assault Android Cactus to be similar but its weird battery system had you playing that game in a very different way than how I prefered to play Robotron.

This is a total pie-in-the-sky dream, but I'm still recovering from a Civilization 6 addiction and I would kill for a 4X style game on the Switch.

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

This thread makes me remember our Excitebike x Wave Race crossover: ExciteBoats.

Anything less than that will be disaapoint.

Awwwwyeah Robotron! No joke, Robotron 64 is my favourite title for the N64. Really, really wanted Assault Android Cactus to be similar but its weird battery system had you playing that game in a very different way than how I prefered to play Robotron.

I checked out some game play videos of Robotron 64 last night and it looked like a lot of fun.

Robotron: 2084 felt like a successor to Wizard of Wor and Bezerk, all three of which gave off a strong horror vibe. Wizard of Wor was more of a fantasy/sci-fi mash-up, but Robotron and Bezerk were dystopian obviously. WoWand Bezerk had great voice synthesizer work which was a big part of creating that atmosphere. Robotron added that fast paced gameplay with great controls.

Midway Arcade has an interesting UI and tries to capture the cacophony of sounds a room full of arcade cabinets makes. I definitively take the time to move through the virtual space to listen to the hum rather than just accessing the games directly from the menu. I would love to see what they could do with a Switch. This is probably the answer to Kairon's question: arcade collections. A Midway Arcade, or anything similar,  that has individual save states for each game would get really excited.

I would also like an Excite game, but the game that would excite the (only)est me would be a Faxanadu sequel.

Rogue Galaxy 2. I'm pretty sure Sony owns that franchise which makes it literally impossible for it to come to switch but the point still stands.

After playing it for several hours on PC, I think the perfect home for Stardew Valley would be the Switch.

When they cancelled the WiiU version a could months back, they announced plans to release the game for Switch so it should be coming out this year.
