By now there is no secret that the NES Classic Edition was a massive success, although its lifespan was very much on the short side. It sold out just as soon as it was made available and for months people had to hunt down, camp, or even pay a substantial amount of money to secure one. At the end of the day, Nintendo confirmed that it had been discontinued and hopes of getting one, for some, had dissipated.
Now, Eurogamer reports that Nintendo is hard at work on the NES Classic Mini predecessor, the SNES Mini:
That the SNES Mini is coming is hardly surprising. Which games will be included? Now, THAT is a debate worth having. When it comes to the SNES, there is no shortage of amazing games, having arguably the greatest software lineup on any given system. What could a 30 game roster look like on the SNES Mini? Let’s look:
- Super Mario World (or Super Mario All-Stars)
- Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars!
- Super Mario Kart
- Donkey Kong Country
- Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest
- Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble!
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Chrono Trigger
- Super Metroid
- Street Fighter II
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
- Super Castlevania IV
- Super Punch-Out!!
- Final Fantasy III
- Final Fantasy IV
- Secret of Mana
- Super Bomberman
- Star Fox
- Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
- Kirby Super Star
- Kirby’s Dream Land 3
- Earthworm Jim
- Mega Man X
- Mortal Kombat II
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
And many more after that. What games do you think should be included with the SNES Mini if it, like its predecessor, comes with 30 games?
