Which mascot would you most like to see return?

Post by The Laird » Sat Dec 23, 2017 8:46 pm

With the triumphant return of Sonic to form, the incredibly surprising return of Bubsy, the Crash Bandicoot collection and the excellent new Wonder Boy games what are the characters and mascots that you would most like to see return?

Personally I would love to see Atari bring back Bentley Bear for a new game on the Atari Box.

Cool Spot.

I know he is the dot from the 7up logo but I really enjoyed the game at the time.

The Ice Climbers.

I don't know much about them to be honest and I wouldn't care to play the NES game. But I think Nintendo could use them in some interesting ways and ride the popularity of Super Smash Bros to kick start a 'new' franchise as they did with Kid Icarus.

I'd like another Sparkster game. Rocket Knight wasn't too bad a follow up but there were elements I wasn't huge on.

James Pond needs a proper mapped video game in the vein of Operation Starfish.

I remember they tried to reboot James Pond but the Kickstarter failed big time

Conker.

No tie ins to stuff like Project Spark, no "young Conker" in that Hololens game, just a true sequel to Bad Fur Day. Enough of the false hopes and imposters....

You’ll have to get the spectrum next, the Oliver brothers are said to be making a new dizzy game for it.

The more I think about this the more I think this is a brilliant idea. They’re certainly a unique concept. I’d love to see what a modern day reboot could bring.
