Revival of the Lost Game Genres!

Postby photonblaze » Tue May 12, 2015 3:38 am

The similarities are insane!

-All 3 are revived game genres which were long lost.
-All 3 were revived by their original game creator.
-All 3 were created because of issues (Capcom not making a Mega Man game in ages, Rare being purchased by Microsoft and doing very little with the IP, The Konami/Kojima Incident + No Castlevania game in years.)
-Not to mention they are all being released on the following years!

So now the question is... what's next?
While Metal Gear Solid isn't a "lost genre," I do see Kojima making a spiritual successor.
But what else could be coming? What do you guys want to see spiritual successors of?

I couldn't disagree more on Mighty No. 9. 2D platformers are widespread, and it wasn't created because Inafune couldn't make Mega Man games- he had at least five in development before leaving.

Yeah, I kinda disagree with that sidescrollers are a lost genre. But these games are certainly big stars & seem to fulfill their spiritual purpose!
