Is there anything left for Gameloft to Clone?

I've been looking back at all the games Gameloft has successfully cloned and was thinking, is there anything left. With there upcoming Uncharted clone, Shadow Guardian, it has left me curious to see what they plan to make next. With the exception of a Fallout or Fable clone, I got nothin. Maybe my brain is just having a slow day but what do you guys think is left for Gameloft to clone?

They haven't made a Zelda-like game, have they?

And by association, they haven't made an Okami one, either, but thank God, Jesus, and everything that is fluffy in the world for that. Let's hope they never try to clone that masterpiece.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Gameloft cannot produce enough horsepower to clone adaquately RDR, Mafia 2, or Just Cause. Their open-world engine is the weakest out of all engines that they use. I do not believe they will expend their library of cloned sandbox games.

Gears of War would be the most obvious choice.

Metal Gear

Devil May Cry

Mass Effect

Burnout or Midnight Club. And no, imo Asphalt is not a Burnout clone. Asphalt is not a clone of anything.

Star Craft. Gameloft has never produced internally a RTS, or at least not what i would call a high-end RTS. They only published Rogue Planet, they did not develop it.

Also Final Fantasy. Gameloft has never made a traditional turn-based RPG or JRPG. Dungeon Hunter is an action-RPG and is the only RPG-like game they've done.

Oblivion/Fallout. Aralon is getting a lot of pub and Gameloft could certainly take their crack at that. I imagine it would be fps though and not a tps, like Aralon and Ravensword.

If you're looking for something kinda out of left field, how about a Monster Hunter clone. Monster Hunter has a huge handheld support base. Not much a console following.

Fantasy Star Universe or some other MMORPG-like game, Gameloft has never made.
