Retro Ported to Modern Systems

 

 

Cordova, TN; March 7, in the year of our Lord 2016--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is putting a little twist on an existing trend. What is that existing trend? Retro video games being put on home consoles. Too many retro video games are put on modern home consoles and hand helds in the despised digital download format. What about the physical format? It does not take a company much time, work or effort to burn one of their old ROMs onto a disc. They could even use the retro art from the original video game. Can you think of some retro games that could be ported to modern systems in the physical format? Maybe even sold for five to ten dollars each at retail.

Super Mario RPG The Legend of the Seven Stars is a Super NES video game that could easily be ported over to the Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS. Phantasy Star II from the Genesis could easily be ported over to the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PS Vita, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. I personally would love to see both of those games ported over to modern consoles in the physical copy format. Imagine a retro area at retail where these games are very reasonably priced. A straight port of the retro game would cost the companies nothing. It is not like we are asking them to redesign, and remodel these older classic video games. Just a retro physical game to a physical port. If they can port them to digital downloads, then they can burn them on a disc and/or cartridge easily.

Can you think of any other retro video games that could easily be ported over to modern day systems in the physical format? What about the original Legend of Zelda NES video game? The sequel Zelda II: The Adventure of Link could be included as a surprise bonus Easter Egg. The same thing could be done with Shining Force, and Shining Force II. Or have a trilogy and include Shining in the Darkness. Do you think this is an unrealistic idea? Capcom recently released Mega Man Legacy Collection. That physical copy contains Mega Man, Mega Man 2, Mega Man 3, Mega Man 4, Mega Man 5, and Mega Man 6. That is six Mega Man video games on one cartridge and disc. Sega has released compilation discs of numerous Genesis games in the past. There are Activision Collections, Atari 2600 Collections, Rare Collection, and more. I would love to see more of it, especially with the recent uptick in physical copies.
