Maybe it was a matter of time, but that isn't important -- what is important is that you guys called it. Chrono Trigger is headed to the DS (and we wouldn't be surprised to see something Snatcher-related for the DS eventually), and that makes last year's celebration of the age of remakes a success.
Which, of course, means we need to do the whole thing again, and that means we have to turn to you, gentle readers. We need all-new games to explore for their remakeability, so open up. Let us know what you might like to see, with the exceptions of Snatcher, Super Smash Bros., Abe's Oddysee, and of course, Chrono Trigger. We'll make a new poll from your suggestions, so get to suggesting. Remakes, ports, and re-imaginings of titles are all fair game. Tell us what you'd play!

Secret Of Mana, and especially its sequel Seiken Densetsu 3.

I second all of those!

I suggest the best of the best ... Earthbound.
It is a so good RGP.

EarthBound. Obviously. Just look at my screen name. Everdred ftw!

EarthBound clearly is THE game that Nintendo needs to be releasing right now for SOMETHING, and for the DS would be awesome. You could have town maps and menus on one screen and the general movement map on the other, and swap them as necessary.
It seems a no-brainer... so WHY Nintendo haven't you re-released EarthBound? :/

Super Metroid, Secret of Evermore, Shadowrun...
I wonder if they could do a Super Gameboy port, so you could plug your old Gameboy games into the slot and play via the SGB software? ;)

I'll second the call for Secret of Mana. I frickin' love that game. The sequel was pretty good as well, but the orignal was played through so many times that it's a bit more special to me. What they need to do is add wireless multiplayer for it to tuly rock.
It might also be interesting to use the bottom screen for selecting magic in a way that doesn't interrupt the flow of the game. Might mess up the balance of the game though - there were many times when going into the ring menus was a way to stop and think about strategy - especially when playing in multiplayer mode.
While we're on the subject of SNES games, I'll throw in Rock n Roll racing. Probably alone on that one though!

How about Kirby Superstars? It's got awesome gameplay and could work nicely with 2-player WiFi co-op. :-3

There was actually a blurb here on KSS for DS...
And an article on gamasutra, too, with a release date of Sept 29th.
7-03-2008 @ 9:51AM
Kirby Superstar is already coming. Somtime this year, I believe.

Last week I had a 2 hour long conversation about how it would be perfect if they released Chrono Trigger and Terranigma on the DS. Half way there so far...
7-03-2008 @ 8:58AM
Oh, I'd love to see a new Kid Icarus, Earthbound and maybe even a new-looking Tales of Phantasia. I loved that one. Or how about a Wii remake of Link's Awakening or the Oracle series (Zelda)?

1. a direct port of Super Mario RPG
2. a DS port of all three DKC games. I'm sure they could all fit onto one cartridge.

I agree 100% on both counts.
In addition to that, Paper Mario would be great. I know there was a rumor about that coming out, but it hasn't been officiated yet.

Earthbound, Secret of Mana, Secret of Mana 2 (I would love a us release after so long and there is that DS game based on Secret of Mana 2), Ogre Battle 64, Bahamut Lagoon (I would love a US release at last), Paper Mario, Any Fire Emblem (we are getting one so why not more), Donkey Kong 64, Earthbound 2 (again a US release would be awesome), Robin Hood Legend of Sherwood (great mac game would work well on DS), Lufia 2 (best non square SNES rpg)
7-03-2008 @ 4:58PM
Earthbound 2?... You mean mother 3? Mother 1 was never released in the US and Mother 2 came over as Earthbound. Mother 3 was the newest one on the GBA.
7-03-2008 @ 9:30AM
Oh, almost forgot..
The LucasArts adventures of course!
Monkey Island 1 and 2, Zak McCracken and Loom should at least be possible on the DS, maybe even Indiana Jones and Day Of The Tentacle.
7-03-2008 @ 10:31PM
Yep I would love to play Loom on my DS... I could with ScummVM but I can't seem to find the audio files in the game disc... pretty much pointless playing it without the sounds :(

Update the art and port the Ultima series
