Series that began in the 80s that should be on the 3DS

Nintendo handhelds are famous for attracting some of the best series from throughout gaming and even creating some new series that began on these systems (Golden Sun, Pokemon)

So what are some of your favorite series that began in the 1980s that you would like to see on the 3DS? This can include series that have already been on the 3DS, like Kid Icarus, or games that haven't made it to the 3DS yet, like Gauntlet.

Even if the series hasn't made another game in decades they can still be part of the list, as long the series had their first game between 1980 to 1989

I'd personally like to see a Metroid game and a Final Fantasy game (an RPG preferably)

I think Bravely Default is the closest we have to a Final Fantasy, at least a classic one. Sadly.

I wouldn't mind seeing the first several Final Fantasy games as VC options.

I am always a sucker for Double Dragon though. . .

Maybe Paperboy? Spyhunter?

I'm all about sequels. I want the following series' to have new games. Balloon Fight (more like Balloon Kid), Metroid, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Castlevania (one that doesn't suck), Section-Z, Mega Man, Contra, Ys, Super Mario Bros. 2 (yes a sequel to SMB2US), Final Fantasy (something in the main series), Ninja Gaiden (original series only), The Magic of Scheherazade, and Super Mario Land (like the original with some vehicles). I have many other things I want but they started 90's and later.

cool topic. The Etrian Odyssey series started on the DS as well and is a throwback to Wizardry style games, very retro.

as far as game series goes I'd like FF, DQ and the retro Megaman (bringing 9 and 10 to the eshop and continuing the series) to come.
