Yacht Club discusses what Nintendo franchise they'd like to work on

Yacht Club has been working on Shovel Knight for over 5 years now. That's an insane amount of time for a small team to spend on their debut game, but it's certainly worked out for them! Not surprisingly, the team has aspirations to work on some other titles as well. In an interview with Nintendo Force magazine, the team was asked what Nintendo properties they'd like to take a crack at. Yacht Club's Sean Velasco had this to say.

"...Rusty's Real Deal Baseball. I can't believe he wasn't in Smash. Other than that, I'd just love to hear what Nintendo would think we could do a good job on. I'd like to help them in whatever way we could."

Now that's an answer no one expected! With how skilled Yacht Club is, I think any franchise they'd tackle would be a a hit!

I'd love it if Nintendo handed them a character with potential, like Warioware Ashley or the Ice Climbers, and said, "Make a new series for this character." I think they could probably make something really good and bring a new franchise into existence.

Kid Icarus, please. Oh, I'd love to see them make a new 2D Kid Icarus.

If Retro has truly moved on from DKC. I say give these guys the DK IP. I need more Kong in my life.

So do I. And please bring back Kiddy Kong next time

I'm not sure if this was a joke or not, but I really, really want another game starring Rusty Slugger. Rusty's Real Deal Baseball was such a clever game and alot of the titles it delivered were addicting and a great use of the 3DS.

Rusty's Real Deal Baseball was a clever idea. The game has add-on mini games, and the player haggled with Rusty over the price. The game didn't coerce the player into buying the games, it didn't keep asking the player to purchase the games. Rusty's Real Deal Baseball didn't do any of that stuff. So the player got nice games at a price they haggled and work for.
