Someone left a SNES switched on for 20 years to preserve a save file

Back during the days of the Game Boy and SNES, games would save progress using a small on-board battery. It was great at the time, however, unfortunately, those things only have a limited lifespan, and in the last few years they’ve be...   read

Super Nintendo Chalmers is the best thing I've seen all month

Custom consoles are one of my favorite things in the gaming world, and this one is no exception. User rori3 shared his creation with an ominous post on reddit, noting that he had "Just finished [his] White Elephant Gift." It's none oth...   read

Prescription for Sleep: Lullabies of Mana is a beautiful Secret of Mana tribute

[Disclosure: Scarlet Moon Productions' Jayson Napolitano used to write for Destructoid.] Secret of Mana is one of those games that really means a lot to me. It wasn't just because I had so much fun with the co-op function with a g...   read

The concept for Chrono Trigger came about from a trip to the United States

I had played RPGs before it, but Chrono Trigger was probably the first time that I sat down and became immersed in something for days on end. Having borrowed it from a friend I didn't run into the "rental" problem I had with some othe...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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,...   read

This Super Nintendo brightened my day

I just love how the colors play off each other in this cheerful Super Nintendo redesign based on Super Mario All-Stars. It's so sleek! That cute art from the cover really pops, too. My Super Nintendo is also yellow, but that's only because ...   read

Star Wars Battlefront looks so good as a 16-bit game

Enjoying that Battlefront beta? It seems like plenty of people are thrilled to play in a Star Wars universe that looks as good as this one does. Bear with me here, but Battlefront has a pleasant charm to it if you strip away...   read

The Homebrew Launcher comes to 3DS, despite Nintendo trying to stop it

Homebrew has become a bit of a Hydra for Nintendo recently. They pulled down IronFall due to an exploit which allowed non-approved software to be run on the 3DS, and in response almost the same exploit has now also been released for the Yo...   read

Someone made a fully-explorable HTML5 map for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

This was a pretty random thing to find, but thanks to a reader I've now fully explored the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past map multiple times over this morning. It's hosted over at Jadsdsengine and runs on HTML5, so you can br...   read

Chiptuner team elix make the Super Nintendo do things I never thought it could

There's nothing that quite replicates the gritty '90s synth of the Super Nintendo's Sony SPC700 sound chip. Electronic dance music team elix, consisting of cTrix and ferris, have developed a music track creator, so that chiptuning for the ...   read

This Kaizo Mario World speedrun stresses me out

Demon's Crest, one of the most rare SNES games to date, is coming to the Virtual Console

One of my biggest regrets is not buying Demon's Crest as a kid. I rented it at least twice and beat it multiple times -- as soon as I was done with one playthrough, I started the next one. It's easily one of the best platformers I've e...   read
