[Let’s Talk] What are you playing? – April 2019

Posted on April 6, 2019 by (@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk

A new month rolled right on in this week. Now that we’re in April, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Are you trying out Yoshi’s Crafted World on Switch? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Your dream Nintendo x indie collaboration

Locky Mavo

It’s seems most people can only think of Sonic Mania-like collaborations (fangame-like), rather than crossover colabs like Cadance of Hyrule or completely new genre for series like Mario+Rabbids, which are more interesting, imo.

Like simply getting Metroidvania devs to make a Metroid game, or Fast RMX to make F-Zero (who have said they wouldn’t do it, even if offered). Wargroove devs to make Advanced Wars, etc. I don’t think Nintendo would give an Indie dev the go ahead to make a new entree to a series, save for maybe reviving a dead IP, like Ice Climbers, Star Tropics or Mach Rider (which could be a great idea).

But what about something different like a City Skylines X Mushroom Kingdom? Or a RTS Metroid game? I like the Shantae X Wario and Pit X Owlboy idea. Then there’s an idea with that 2D Splatoon mini game that never happened.


Wizard of Legend X Ness/Earthbound – Earthbound crew just running around the city slinging their powers in fast paced combat.

Yoku’s Island Express X Metroid – Walk and platform like Samus, and transform to a ball when pinballing.

Aaero X Starfox – Rhythm game with Starfox elements. I think even a reskin would work.

Overcooked X Pokemon – More like a pet grooming service concept as a party game.

Bastion X Splatoon – instead of the forming stages in Bastion, the stages are gradually drawn in Black and White and it’s your job to paint. Or squids painting everything in black and white and you need to take them out and paint the stages.

Smite/Arena of Valor X Fire Emblem/Valkyria Chronicles – I personally would prefer the top-down style of classic MOBA like LOL so that it differs from the 3D incarnations of Fire Emblem and Valkyria Chronicles


Get Suda51 to make a new famicom detective club and let him go nuts with it.
Also a La Mulana take on Metroid or Zelda would be cool, though maybe not strikingly different.

P.S. let me make a new marvelous

Lightning Star

Shantae X Wario Land

Honestly, WayForward and GoodFeel would be perfect to collaborate on such a game. Plus, the art styles of “Half Genie Hero” and “The Shake Dimension” work together so harmoniously.


hm.. Enter The Gungeon x Kid Icarus Uprising? Specifically uprising since that one’s thing was having so many weapons, so playing as Pit, Dark Pit, Magnus, Palutena, and/or Viridi.
