The release of Bloodstained : Ritual of the Night and Mighty No. 9, may evolve the spirit once lost within Castlevania and Mega Man. I heavily look forward to their releases, but what about gaming series that haven't been in the current light? Will we ever get to see a fully fledged Metroid title by Nintendo? How about a new Jak and Daxter game? While it's nice to see Ratchet and Clank get rebooted, how many other games are more worthy? Not all dream sequels are happy however, with the release of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5, it shows how easy it is ruin what some people consider a classic gaming franchise.
All is not lost in this battle as we finally see the Final Fantasy VII remake finally in development and Shenmue 3 is actually a tangible idea. These ideas show that if enough work is put into a reboot, almost anything is possible. It may be entirely possible that developers simply don't want to take a risk on past franchises.
In our opinion we'd like to see a new Legend of Dragoon , Castlevania or Mega Man game made for next generation consoles. If done properly, these games could not only be successful , but may even return the series to its once popular state.
