Will The SNES Mini Become Reality? Here Are Six Games We Think Should Make The Cut:by

Anyone paying attention to gaming news in recent weeks will know that, surprisingly, Nintendo are making all kinds of waves in the media – they’ve not only offered news on their forthcoming Switch console in early 2017, but have also experienced colossal interest in their Nintendo Classic Mini, an HD relaunch of thirty original games produced for the company’s first home console in the mid-1980s. The hardware has been subject to selling out in stores across the US and in Europe, and is therefore seen to be a hit – leading many Nintendo fans to assume that it will only be a matter of time before the firm looks to create a similar relaunch for their second console, the Super Nintendo (or SNES).

There are no plans confirmed for such a system just yet – however, we think there are scores of ground-breaking titles for the SNES that are still playable today, and which will pull in just as much interest as the NES Mini’s line-up. Here are just a few games we think a SNES Classic Mini really shouldn’t be without.

Super Mario World

Widely regarded as possibly the finest 16-bit platform game of all time, Super Mario World took the original Mario games from the NES and made them bigger, brighter, and generally more exciting – this was the plumber’s first outing with Yoshi, and as a launch title for the SNES, it’s still regarded as one of its absolute finest, and most playable today.

F-Zero

While Nintendo haven’t shown much interest in the F-Zero series beyond nods in the Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart franchises in recent years, it can hardly be denied that the original F-Zero was an essential trailblazer for racing games in general. Using then-pioneering Mode 7 technology, this futuristic speedway sim offered blistering pace and challenging difficulty that can still provide a task to handle in 2016.

Super Metroid

Bounty hunter Samus Aran was one of the first female gaming protagonists, and her SNES adventure is still regarded by many to be her finest. Refining the run-and-shoot action of the NES original with impressive visuals, challenging level design and an adventure that would take gamers days on end to fight through back in the early 90s, it’s no surprise that Super Metroid remains one of the most sought-after – and valuable – SNES titles around.

The Legend of Zelda : A Link To The Past

While 1998’s The Ocarina of Time may still be regarded by gamers as Link’s finest foray into Hyrule, his SNES adventure continues to come a close second after all these years. A huge adventure in a top-down perspective, the third Zelda game set the benchmark for adventure RPGs everywhere in its easily-accessible interface and gameplay, along with a bevy of memorable moments, music and visuals.

Earthbound

Earthbound only recently made its way to European shores after several decades, and it was sorely missed – a supremely quirky slant on the RPG genre, Earthbound focuses on telling a story that is equal parts funny and unnerving – somewhat of a parody in some places of popular Japanese RPGs at the time, this is a game that has a devoted core of fans and Nintendo would be wise to do it justice on a SNES Mini.

Super Mario Kart

Returning to Mario for our last entry, where would we be without an entry from Mario Kart? This game-changing debut for the plumber’s racing franchise has been re-imagined and honed over the years to the point where it’s not considered a Nintendo console until there’s some form of Kart title in the line-up – and as it’s still fun to play with friends to this day, we think no SNES Mini would be without the first in the series in its arsenal.
