With the NES Classic being so popular last year, it's not surprising to see Nintendo make a SNES Classic to follow it up. Here is a list of games for it, courtesy of IGN:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
- Donkey Kong Country
- Final Fantasy III
- Kirby Super Star
- Kirby’s Dream Course
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Mega Man X
- Secret of Mana
- Star Fox
- Star Fox 2
- Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
- Super Castlevania IV
- Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
- Super Mario World
- Super Metroid
- Super Punch-Out!!
- Yoshi’s Island
Star Fox fans should take special notice of this, as this includes star Fox 2, a never before released sequel to the first Star Fox game. That alone could help the SNES Classic be even more popular than the NES one, as this has a new game on it.
As for the other games, I think it has a good selection of them. Out of all of these, I've only played Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Mario Kart. I've kind of been interested in playing Earthbound and F-Zero, just to see what they are like. I've also watched Let's Plays of Yoshi's Island and Donkey Kong Country, so I wouldn't mind trying those games too.
Overall, I think this will be even more popular than the NES Classic, especially since it has a new game on it. I just hope that Nintendo makes enough for everyone to get a chance to get one.
What are your thoughts on the SNES Classic? Do you plan to get one?
