So we have smash bros, and the DLC for Mario Kart 8 has Link and we got F-Zero tracks.
But I want something in the 3D action/adventure/RPG? platforming area. Something where you can explore the colliding and crossover universes of Nintendo IPs where you can team up and beat levels based on the Mushroom Kingdom, Hyrule, Outer space, etc and mix and match characters and gameplay styles such as Link on a space pirate space station, Mario in Hyrule and Samus in the Mushroom Kingdom.
You could even add multiplayer and team up together, and even add third party DLC like Shadow Moses Island to the roster of levels at a later date.
I'd play the shit out of something that combined 3D platforms, action adventure with some RPG elements, all with characters and levels from different Nintendo IPs, as brawlers like smash have never been my favourite genre.
Any thoughts? Does anyone else want a new and different crossover IP than just smash?
Wave Race 64 was released in 1996 for the Nintendo 64 in Japan. In this racing game, developed by Nintendo EAD, ride your Kawasaki jet ski to victory against fierce rivals and tumultuous waves. This is one of the defining racing games of the Nintendo 64 as its impressive physics showed a new kind of experience that could only be possible with 3D game engines. With buoys to pass from either their right or left side and a power-up system rewarding skilful racers, it's a fun and fresh challenge to enjoy by yourself or with a friend.
Game Boy Gallery 2 was released in 1997 for the Game Boy in Japan. In this video game compilation/mini-game compilation, developed by Tose, each game is playable in its original '80s version and in a remastered version with advanced graphics, sound, and new gameplay. In Parachute catch the parachutists before they fall into the sea. In Helmet dodge the falling tools and head for the shed. In Chef juggle ingredients with your frying pan for as long as you can. In Vermin use your mallets to keep the moles and other critters at bay.

There's not a lot of Nintendo related lost media out there, but there's some things that are just completely gone or inaccessible.
For example, people have been looking hard for the [Slamfest '99](https://lostmediawiki.com/Super_Smash_Bros.Slamfest%2799_(lost_livestream_of_promotional_event_for_Nintendo_64_crossover_fighting_game;_1999)) livestream footage, and Dr. Mario World for mobile is completely unplayable now.
What's a piece of lost media you're interested in finding? Why?
