Most of these games are literal classics in the gaming medium, with titles like Punch-Out!!, Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros are important cornerstones of gaming history.

While the Donkey Kong and Punch-Out!! series are currently stuck in limbo, Mario has been having a ball with two incredible modern releases back-to-back. From Super Mario Odyssey to Bowser’s Fury.

Nintendo has also been revisiting their past franchises lately with Metroid fans finally getting some love with Metroid Dread and Pikmin 4 in development.
