Earlier today, rumors were circulating over the possibility that Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door could be coming to the Nintendo 3DS. Fake or not, it was pretty convincing, and it brings up some great questions over what classic games Nintendo should actually port to their popular handheld.

If you're like me, The Thousand-Year Door is probably all you'll ever ask for, but a certain hope always comes that we get something unique or forgotten like Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario Sunshine, or Pokémon Snap.

The trend of the gaming industry is headed toward a future where gaming is influenced by virtual reality. Companies such as Valve, Oculus, and Sony are all taking a swing at their own VR devices, all set to release within the next year.

After rumors of Hideo Kojima leaving Konami hit the news last week, people became concerned over the development of Silent Hills and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Many fans of Kojima's work were irritated to find out that Konami removed his name from the marketing of Metal Gear Solid V. A recent trailer promoting the game's limited edition watch reveals "A Hideo Kojima Game" is back above the Metal Gear Solid V logo. It is very possible that this trailer was produced before the falling out between Kojima and Konami, but considering Konami removed his name from other sources yet left his name here could imply that there has been some sort of agreement between the two parties.

Rumors are nothing more than rumors, and should always be taken with a grain of salt. That said, it appears that Reddit has caught wind of an upcoming new remake for Nintendo 3DS: Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
