Not so much a genre as an IP. I've said for a while that Naughty Dog would be perfect for a full effort Bond game.
Beyond that, Klei can keep acing every genre they touch. Looking forward to their upcoming RPG.
What's their upcoming RPG?
Wouldn't a Bond game work best as an FPS like GoldenEye, and has Naughty Dog ever even done an FPS? I don't think they'd do another fighting after Way of The Warrior flopped.
WayForward Technologies has done a lot of great Metroidvania games (most of them Shantae), they proved with Contra 4 they can do run and gun-style games, and platformers when they did DuckTales Remastered. I'd like to see if WayForward can try their hands at an open-world game, even though the genre is very crowded.
I'm a Team Ninja gamer all the way. I've always wanted to see them open up the library of characters available in the DoA franchise. I would love to see an espionage title with Christie as the main character including Bayman and Leon. A wrestling game (which has been stale for decades) starring Bass and Tina with Lisa. Possibly a Ninja Gaiden world with Kasumi and Ayane as the stars and Hayate and Hayabusa as guest playables.
I just think the execution of both franchises are as fluid and responsive as the best of them. I don't know what engine they use but whatever it is, it's phenomenal.
There's so much potential with those characters. I'd also like to see a hack n slash Scorpion title where he hunts down Sub Zero
That'd be awesome! Like a spiritual successor to Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. :)
