In recent years, Nintendo developed a number of games under the 2.5D concept. These are titles that are completely modeled in 3D, but the gameplay functions primarily in two dimensions. That’s not the only definition of the term, though let’s stick to that.

The 2.5D style is a great way to bring back a lot of classic games from Nintendo’s huge catalog of hits. Personally speaking, there are two games in specific that I consider the best 2.5D creations from Nintendo: Metroid Dread and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Both are amazing in a lot of aspects, and in today’s video, I discuss how well they explore the many possibilities provided by 2.5D. You can check out the video down below.
