EVERY Forgotten Nintendo Franchises That DESERVE Switch Games in 2020

The Nintendo Switch has a ton of games and represents so many IP, but which ones are left? It turns out there are dozens of Nintendo franchises that have yet to appear on the Switch. This list will remind you of missing series such as F-Zero, Pikmin or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, and inform you on ones you may have also forgotten like Golden Sun, Fossil Fighters and Battle Clash. Parker lists out 37 of Nintendo’s Franchises and when they were last seen that have yet to appear on the Nintendo Switch & that we’ll hopefully see as 2020 Switch games & beyond. Let’s talk about it!

    The only 3rd person Metroid game ever made was Metroid Other M.

  2. TheRManProds on April 2, 2020 at 5:16 pm

    GOLDEN SUN 4 PLEASE!

  3. Trevor Grover on April 2, 2020 at 5:21 pm

    We should get a Switch Sports (basically Wii Sports). Nintendo isn’t taking advantage of their motion controls as much as they could.

  4. Ardis Jackson on April 2, 2020 at 5:22 pm

    See i like this alot unlike most youtubers. This channel gives spotlight to lesser known franchises.

  5. BLOCK on April 2, 2020 at 5:22 pm

    I would love to see more in depth videos about some of these. Some of my favorite vids are the more creative hypothetical ones

  6. mrusername09 on April 2, 2020 at 5:22 pm

    We need a new F-Zero. Just imagine an F-Zero game with modern graphics, and 30 player online racing. Or even make a video game about captain falcons career as a bounty Hunter

  7. XxCocohontas on April 2, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    I NEED MORE ACE ATTORNEY 🤬

  8. Calum Beag on April 2, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    F-zero meets Diddy Kong meets GTA? Adventure mode, track mode & free roam in mad futuristic city?

  9. Susy Sheep on April 2, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    Geist and doshin the giant are two gamecube ones theirs also fatal frame and eternal darkness which i dont know if their owned by nintendo

  10. Richard on April 2, 2020 at 5:28 pm

    Am I the only one who remembers StarTropics?

  11. TheRManProds on April 2, 2020 at 5:28 pm

    HOW ABOUT STAR FOX RACERS?!

  12. Se7en on April 2, 2020 at 5:32 pm

    This isn’t a dormant IP as much as an underrated/forgetten one, but I’d really like to see Code Name: S.T.E.A.M again. Yeah, it wasn’t the most groundbreaking turn-based tactics game but it was basically steampunk X-COM and I think that deserves another chance. Also, I feel it was kind of overshadowed by Splatoon as Nintendo’s hot new IP in 2015 so a sequel or even just a HD remake/port for Switch could give it a new lease of life.

  13. Huy Chu on April 2, 2020 at 5:32 pm

    Oh boy, advanced war … I miss the game, it was my best game on GBA.

  14. John Francis on April 2, 2020 at 5:34 pm

    never heard of custom robo or battle clash

  15. Darius Pryor on April 2, 2020 at 5:34 pm

    What if Tony Hawk Pro Skater came to the Switch?

  16. Matt92685 on April 2, 2020 at 5:34 pm

    Star tropics!

  17. Nelka Fernando on April 2, 2020 at 5:34 pm

    Advance wars

  18. Wii hat Mii on April 2, 2020 at 5:35 pm

    Why didn’t you mention Geist? An ego shooter with action adventure elements on the Gamecube.

    Also Starfox Adventures is it’s own franchise because it plays so different from the normal Starfox Games.

    Also worth mentioning: Odama, Donkey Konga, Disaster: Day of Crisis

  19. Jonathan Farah on April 2, 2020 at 5:35 pm

    Nintendo should just give these game series to other studios who would kill to work with Nintendo
    Imagine shinen(developer of fast) with F-zero, megapixel(developer of panzer dragoon remake) or Ubisoft with star fox, Capcom with Kid icarus, grezzo with golden sun remakes, team cherry or mercury steam with Metroid, and Toby fox with earthbound

  20. JustCallMeSchwick on April 2, 2020 at 5:37 pm

    Is it bad that I only clicked this because I know rhythm heaven is gonna be in here. That’s all I want. That and Paper Mario.

  21. JustCallMeSchwick on April 2, 2020 at 5:37 pm

    Pikmin is categorized as a RTS game

  22. Sarah Demko on April 2, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    Paper mario

  23. Broken Fiction on April 2, 2020 at 5:40 pm

    So, the Pokémon Direct reaction stream… It says that it’s a private video. Does that mean that I have to pay for it or something??

  24. XxCocohontas on April 2, 2020 at 5:40 pm

    Lmaoo yesss style savvy! Lol never played a 3ds but that’s the game i would’ve gotten with new leaf 😭 and rhythms heaven too!

  25. Lifeless!doesgames on April 2, 2020 at 5:42 pm

    Mine will definitely be pikmin, the games where so fun and having a pikmin 4 on the switch, I would buy it immediatly

  26. TBD 101 on April 2, 2020 at 5:44 pm

    9:21 oh yeah, Mother 3, my favourite game from 2016!

  27. Irie Island Gaming on April 2, 2020 at 5:44 pm

    They did say that two unannounced wii u ports are coming..hopefully one is Pikmin! Def would love that franchise to come to switch! Also the paper mario or mario & luigi series!

  28. Bite on April 2, 2020 at 5:46 pm

    You forgot that Mario Sports Mix on the Wii is a sudo-sequel to Hoops.

  29. John Francis on April 2, 2020 at 5:47 pm

    Strikers FTW

  30. Regshow1 on April 2, 2020 at 5:47 pm

    7:43 boy do I have news for you 👀

  31. Kyle Silverthorn on April 2, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    Glory of Heracles?

  32. bikosiaris on April 2, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    You forgot Startropics and the Mario & Luigi series. Also it would be cool if we get a new Donkey Kong game!

  33. jose cabrera on April 2, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    this was extremely well put together. short, sweet, and to the point. you just earned a sub.

  34. Bite on April 2, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    Super Mario Strikers 2 needs to happen, although I feel like if there is a powerful "Switch 2" they’d save this as one of the games to show off it’s prowess using it’s crazy art style to the max.

  35. TheRManProds on April 2, 2020 at 5:52 pm

    YES GOLDEN SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Skullstar Productions on April 2, 2020 at 5:52 pm

    I’d absolutely love to see a new Star Fox or Advance Wars title! I’d also happily watch any videos you make on those franchises.

  37. Adrock 99 on April 2, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    You forgot Fossil Fighters.

  38. Wii hat Mii on April 2, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    Kid Icarus was once a Metroidvania. I like that they brought the universe back but I don’t like rail shooters so much. I would rather play a real Kid Icarus and also a Starfox game with the spirit of Starfox Adventures. It was so beautiful. Nintendo needs more semi open world action adventures in the style of the older 3D Zelda games I miss so much.

    I also want to have F-Zero back and I’m always asking myself what they could do with the Geist IP these days.

  39. FanatixFour on April 2, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    What forgotten Nintendo franchise(s) do you hope come to Switch in the future?

    I mean, is pikmin really a forgotten series? sure its been a few years since pikmin 3 came out, and then they made they hey pikmin game, but i think they probably are going to come out with more games, hopefully centered around the group from the 3rd game since i feel like they could do some coop story mode stuff with them, and i think if they added olimar and louie back in, they could have them as playable characters you can choose, If only because i feel like their story is either done or doesnt need too much more left that could be made into another game. Ik it sounds like i’m treating them like their characters are done and they retired but, they already rebuilt a ship, collected recycle and other various treasures to repay a dept, and went to another planet because of the same thing (if i’m remembering the 3rd game correctly). If i’m being honest, as much as i love the first 2 games and could replay them over and over a ton of times, i’d like to see charlie’s crew be utilized more and hopefully not treated as side characters or background characters like compile heart did to most of the characters from their games that arent the main characters or the series villains.

  41. Gizensha Fox on April 2, 2020 at 5:56 pm

    "What genre is Pikmin" – Real Time Strategy. A quirky RTS, for sure, but the quirkiness is basically what was needed to get that genre functional outside of the mouse/keyboard control schemes that PC gets and prior attempts at putting RTS on console failed to successfully emulate.

  42. lee76 on April 2, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    Third party but would like a new Jet Force Gemini, great game on the N64.

  43. brick boy3800 on April 2, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    I think they have Pokemon Mystery Dungeon on switch now

  44. Jay Ross on April 2, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    👏RE👏MAKE👏MOTHER

  45. Pedro Hdez on April 2, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    Tetris Attack / panel de pon / planet puzzle league

  46. XxCocohontas on April 2, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    Lol ofc pikmin is the thumbnail

  47. TheRManProds on April 2, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    CUSTOM ROBO TOO!

  48. Matt92685 on April 2, 2020 at 6:09 pm
