I'm going to let that last one from before go one more night. If no one can guess it, I suppose I'll get some points.
The company who made this game doesn't drift into this genre very often. In fact, they added their company name to the title of the game itself! The same company worked with Nintendo on one of their major franchises last generation for the Wii. The end result was very controversial.
Here's three new ones to further tide you over. I'll give you a little hint for #3; it's early concept art of the game, but the character is virtually identical to one that made it into the final game. Good luck!
Ah, just when I thought I was going to get some points! XD The Qu and Nester are all right!
Nester: 21 The Qu: 16 YL: 14 8bit: 4
Hint for the remaining game: It was the first console exclusive installment of the franchise, and it would be well over a decade for a true sequel to be made. The lead character has seen a bit of a resurrection as of late, appearing in a few crossover titles in the last five years.
