The Super Famicom Mini has a different game lineup

I'm sufficiently sold on the SNES Classic, both because I have an inherent love of the console (it's my all-time favorite) and because Nintendo did a surprisingly good job with its software picks. Actually getting one, though? I'm expecting...

It should be easier to nab an SNES Classic

Today's announcement of the SNES Classic came attached with the obvious joke of "But no one will be able to get one." It's low-hanging fruit admittedly, but it's also deserved. Even Nintendo acknowledged that the NES Classic's production re...

SNES Classic loaded with Star Fox 2 launching this September

Well, it's really happening. If the NES Classic didn't appeal to you, then this one surely will draw you in. Nintendo confirmed on Twitter that a Super Nintendo Classic Edition (which means it'll be HDMI ready like its predecessor) is on th...

The Super Nintendo almost had banking software?!

This week, Destructoid's staff began voting on our 30 favorite Super Nintendo games in anticipation for the much-rumored SNES comeback. It's getting ugly and personal. One guy voted fourteen times for Ken Griffey Jr. We'll have the results ...

The Super Nintendo is next in line for a visual compendium

Bitmap Books has come out with several well-received visual compendiums before, but this latest one -- an unofficial "visual tribute" to the Super Nintendo and Super Famicom -- is particularly special to me. That's my all-time favorite game...

There's a happy ending for the missing SNES package

I'm sure we could all use some good news today. Last week we told you about a missing package containing somewhere around $10,000 worth of PAL format Super Nintendo (SNES) games. The package was on its way to archivist and game historian By...

Holy hell, you can kill the Big Boos in Super Mario World

The last time my mind was this blown by a piece of video game trivia, I had just learned that clouds and bushes in Super Mario Bros. were the same sprite, only recolored and masked with clever placement. As pointed out by Supper Mario Broth...

These Super Nintendo shoes have real buttons and a d-pad

Reworking the Air Jordan 4 with a stylish Super Nintendo aesthetic? Cool enough. Wait'll you see the backside, though. For this design, which will be available in super limited quantities, creator Freaker Sneaks took things a step further, ...

Rayman creators find rare Super Nintendo version

Rayman creators Frédéric Houde and Michel Ancel have stumbled upon an unreleased, unfinished Super Nintendo version of the platforming game previously thought to be lost forever. Somehow, it still works!

Stranger Things and Game of Thrones get the SNES treatment

I'll be the first to admit it, this story's a little strange. I'm pretty sure we've never posted anything from HalloweenCostumes.com before. Movies and TV shows tend not to have full console releases anymore, as the tie-in games we see toda...

Luigi's color came from graphical limitations

While it took Nintendo years to catch on to the fact, gamers have known for a long time that Luigi is the true lord and savior of gaming. He may play second fiddle to his brother, but we all prefer the slim, handsome scaredy cat over the ty...

 
 
 
 
 
SNES Disney speedruns photo

These Disney platformer speedruns bring back fond memories

Some of my favorite video games as a kid were based on Disney properties. You didn't even need to like the source material to appreciate them -- they were just plain good games. Tough, too. Back then, a typical rental often wouldn't cut it....

This pıoɹʇǝɯ ɹǝdns mod is pretty damn rad

There's no better time to talk about retro games than during AGDQ's recent runs, and Super Metroid is of course a classic. This crazy mod, dubbed the "perspective hack," shifts the entire camera around and flips the world on its ...

Review: Super Star Wars

I'm really surprised that Super Star Wars is getting a re-release in 2015. No, not because "it's old," but rather the fact that it's an exceedingly unforgiving retro game, which doesn't really gel with the hand-holding landscape of modern g...

Reminder: Super Star Wars comes out this week on PSN

As a reminder, Super Star Wars will hit the PSN this week (PS4 and Vita with Cross-Buy). It was part of a classic trilogy for the SNES, and was basically a re-telling of A New Hope, through the veil of an action platformer -- it w...

That Nintendo PlayStation works!

Real or fake, I was fascinated by that so-called Nintendo PlayStation. The system, a sort of Super Nintendo with a CD drive, was produced through a partnership with Sony but never saw a commercial release. The machines are exceedingly rare,...

Ys remains in the shadows even to this day, but I think it holds higher promise for a great new release than even those Final Fantasy But I think it has this success because it remains there, just giving us the best they can without having to rush
