- Wario 3D platformer where Mario is the endboss
- Mario Kart where new characters and courses are added like in Smash Bros.
- Have classic Nintendo characters like Luigi or Kirby live as villagers in Animal Crossing
- A proper console Nintendogs with deep progression and tons of activities
- Wave Race 3 and 1080 Snowboarding 3 with online leveling systems and leaderboards
- Battalion Wars 3 with online versus modes
- Wii Sports 2 with online modes (can use joycons, wii sports resort counts as a spin-off)
- Revive and give Golden Sun a console treatment
- Star Fox Adventure 2 developed by the Breath of the Wild team
- Anything F-Zero
- Excitebike with online made by the Mario Kart team

You know what, I think they've kinda nailed their model with Switch being able to go from a tv screen to the palm of your hand (not quite), i don't think they need to change much... a few new IPs might be nice, something a tad more serious... a Metroid Prime reboot? with no 'emotional scenes'? XP

A peach game where she saves Mario.

edit: I’ve heard of the DS game but I heard it was middling and/or half-hearted.

The SMB2 universe has established she has a similar moveset to Mario so I was thinking maybe she could star in a game series and do cool fun heroic stuff. Toad has treasure tracking and Luigi has Mansion ghost busting.

They should do one game where aliens massacre mario&friends and stop to make those games.

Then make 15TFlops console, get bankcrupted because they are one hit miracle of mario, and Sony would buy their remains.



But yeah, I wish there would be a room for 3rd console, now they just hide on handheld space as they know they dont have real games to compete with.

Gamecube 2 with similar variety of more dark&mature games. (And reasonable prices, not this 500% profit bullshit with shitty hardware they like to do)

ADVANCE WARS
Battalion Wars is Advance Wars on consoles, it's the same franchise, but it would be cool to see a proper 2D Advance Wars on consoles. The handheld nature of Switch would be perfect for it. Dual Strike is god-tier.

Allow nVidia to use ampere cores in the next switch sense they'd cost less, use less battery and be far more powerful than die shrinking Maxwell again or reproducing Volta, which is the more likely scenario.

Allow us to have our old VC games be playable on the switch.

Let us migrate games from Wii U instead of forcing us to rebuy everything.

Proper online.

Powerful hardware.

Games with different prices.

Adult clothing. Shirts with very subtle Nintendo logos. Hats that don't have MARIO written on them in size 60 font. Every time I go to Nintendo World in NYC it's all garish kids gear, even the adult sized stuff. I'd like Nintendo clothing designed for the older demographic.

Battalion Wars is more a real-time action spin-off but I wouldn't mind a new Battalion Wars either. A new Advance Wars doesn't have to be 2D (although I would totally be fine with that), I just want that kind of turn-based strategy on the Switch. Yes, I am aware of Tiny Metal...but it kinda feels like a more clunky, less well thought through designed game. But it's alright.
Ironically, I had this experience as well with Iron Harvest, a Company of Heroes-clone with a cool setting....but it plays worse than Company of Heroes and the maps aren't as interesting.

Give the ports a rest and develop some new games.

OP's post almost made me cry btw. Such wasted potential in all those franchises, and instead they just milk the poor plumber time after time.
