Games that you'd like to see in other style?

With the announcement of Metroid Dread and the anticipation for Metroid Prime 4, it got me thinking that Nintendo is the company that has different styles for many franchise. They have 2D Mario and 3D Mario, 2D Zelda and 3D Zelda, 2D Metroid and 3D/FPS Metroid, etc.

They have also done many games with completely different art styles, graphics, genre or gameplay. For example: Super Mario RPG, New Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Odyssey. Also, there's Kirby games which have had different art styles in each iteration, etc.

So then I ask, which game or franchise would you like to see in a different style/perspective/genre?

I'll start:
- A 3D 3PV of Metroid, with very high detailed graphics (ala Final Fantasy, Halo, etc) I don't know if it'd work, but I would love If they came up with a clever idea that's also fun.

- Legend of Zelda as a souls like game (without the difficulty, come on, it's Zelda).

I know these are uninspired ideas, but I'm more interested in reading your ideas and what you guys have in mind.

Just one rule: This is not about a game turning into something else completely, like F-Zero becoming a fighting game. It's supposed to maintain its core identity but in a different style, genre or new gameplay ideas.

What are your choices?

With yakuza turning into a turn based rpg game and after the release of persona 5 strikers, I say the persona series should turn into an action RPG with SMT being the turn based game

A lot of third person shooters placed into a TB strategy game like Gears did very well and a lot of TB strategy games turn into 3rd person action games. One series that comes to mind is Shadowrun. Shame license seems to be held by HB who has done phenomenal job in TB, but there is so much potential with this series.

A final fantasy but in the style of Uncharted, action combat and exploration. Then I saw that FF Origin gameplay and I don’t think I want it anymore.

Star Fox as either a Mass Effect-style choice-driven RPG (plus space fights/escort missions/etc.) with the Landmaster as your Mako OR a Battlefield clone by DICE. I would have said Battlefront 2, but they've shown they don't know how to do those, IMO.

I think Halo has the potential to have hack n slash and open-world rpg spin-offs, and maybe even some stealth based games, that would be cool.

A think a little tounge in check with Lego Nintendo games would be interesting since they are already making toys with them As and adult I’ve never played a Lego game but I would for Nintendo lol

Gears 6 but with more horror elements like the first one. Gears 5 played itself like a Ratchet & Clank spray & pray shooter.

3D Street Fighter - Tekken-style with massive movelists for every character and no magic (except maybe for finishing moves).

So not like Akuma in Tekken 7 who still mostly plays like a 2D character.

I'd like to see a Pokemon game change its style to be a game with ambition, passion and effort put into it.
With jaw dropping graphics, sound and a game that shuts the fuck up and let's you go out into the world explore without very little interruptions.

In other words the opposite to what they've given.

I wouldn't say in another style but I would like to use street fighter characters in an action adventure game. Like Chun li for example in an action game going after shadowloo in a 3d world.

I would like street fighter to go into either the 3d style of tekken or guilty gear, both are okay.

I did want zeld in a princess mononoke ghibli style ,but breath of the wild is the closest we'll probably get.

I would like a new digimon world game that has the gameplay world of like pillars of eternity. This game's style reminded me more of the ps1 digimon world but with the camera pulled further back.

That reminds me that I wanted an ff game in the style of pillars of eternity but with the camera slightly closer to the characters similar to like the ps1 games.

For some odd reason I keep of thinking of devil may cry and a rhythm game.

A Final Fantasy that looks like Amano's art would be neat.

An ambitious pokemon game

I'd love a 3rd person Metroid, its a bummer that team ninja made it seem like a bad idea with Other M.

Rockstar Cowboy bebop style game.

A Metal Gear Battle Royal

An open world cel shaded sonic game; with no humans.

Final Fantasy 6, Chrono trigger and Golden Sun in that HD2D style.

Final Fantasy 9 remake.

I'm ready for a new art style in Legend of Zelda.

We've had this cell-shaded art style for quite a few games (Windwaker, Skyward Sword, BotW 1&2) and although there are subtle differences between each games art style it's time for something new.

Jim.
Every game should have skill tree and gears drop with unique stats .
No.

you would get devs abusing that behind MTX

I would like to see a Diablo style game but set in the Aliens world. Instead of wizards mages etc you would get different class of marines. But weapons /ammo drops etc and multiplayer action.

like Alien Breed evolution. But more in-depth gameplay I dunno.

Fire Emblem as a Soul Calibur like fighter, only for its characters to go there and leave the fuck out of Smash once and for all

A Halo WRPG.

A street fighter JRPG.

A Soul Calibur 3rd person action game, but with massive scale musou-like army battles.

A new Colony Wars game but a WRPG (a la Mass Effect), but with traditional Colony Wars space ship flight and combat missions.

A Warhawk sequel but single player, as a 3rd person action game but with full RTS mechanics for base building and all-out war---think Battlezone II but in a Warhawk skin.
