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...

The Super Nintendo is next in line for a visual compendium

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, ...

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...
