I’ve always been a huge fan of Sid Meier’s Pirates! and the many ramakes. It’s seriously one of the BEST Nintendo games of all time. Since there hasn’t been a new addition to the franchise in a while, I am always on the lookout for a new possible successor. I think there might be a killer one on the way.
20,000 leagues above the sky is still in development so I can’t claim to have actually played it yet, but from the looks it may take the place as the spiritual successor to Pirates. Adding in some incredible graphics as well as the concept of flying and 3d movement, makes this game look awesome.
