There is a handful of incredible game series that need to be played by as many people as possible. I’ve compiled a list of series I believe deserve to have ports or remastered collections on Nintendo Switch. Let’s jump in!

The Legend of Zelda Collection

In recent years, many game developers have gotten frowned upon due to the number of HD remakes hitting the market, and to a degree, HD remakes are still a little out of hand. However, The Legend of Zelda is an exceptional franchise that consists of some of the best titles in the history of gaming. Thanks to the enhanced power of the Switch in comparison to 3DS, it’s more feasible that we’ll see GameCube and Wii games (and anything older) running on the console/handheld-hybrid, with no technical difficulties. Heck, after seeing the gorgeous Breath of the Wild on the platform, I believe any previous Nintendo game could run on Switch (motion and touch games as well). The main reason why I want The Legend of Zelda collection is because Nintendo has released so many remakes/remasters over the years, it’d be awesome to have all of those enhanced versions on one platform.

Games in the collection:

The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (with GBA enhanced visuals), The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (3DS remake/remaster), The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (3DS remake/remaster), The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (Wii U HD Remake), The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii U HD Remaster), The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (with added traditional control options), The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Unlikely games in the collection:

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (with added DX features), The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (with added analog functionality), The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (with added analog functionality)

Super Mario Collection

The Mario series is undeniably one of the most iconic franchises in history. Yes, we’ve all bought many of these games multiple times already. But how about one last time, eh? Now that our purchases are finally tied to an account system, I’m willing to buy every Mario games one last time, and hope that they last more than just a few years. Similar to the Zelda series, Nintendo has released various iterations of some Mario titles, so it would be awesome to have the definitive versions of every Mario game in one place.

Games in the collection:

Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64 (with DS bonus content), Super Mario Sunshine, New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. U, Super Mario 3D World

Unlikely games in the collection:

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, New Super Luigi U

Mass Effect Collection

Considered by many as the best gaming trilogy of all-time, it’s pretty insane that we haven’t seen remakes/remasters of the Mass Effect games on any current generation consoles. Leading up to the launch of Mass Effect: Andromeda, EA and BioWare confirmed they had no plans to bring the trilogy to PS4 and Xbox One, as they were set on looking to the future. However, since Andromeda launched, EA went back on that by saying the trilogy is “most likely on the way”. So all we can do is hope the trilogy finds its way to current platforms, including Nintendo Switch.

Games in the collection:

Mass Effect (including all DLC content), Mass Effect 2 (including all DLC content), Mass Effect 3 (including all DLC content)

Unlikely games in the collection:

Mass Effect: Infiltrator
