Building My Perfect SNES Classic: Part 2

Shortly after my hype subsided from the announcement of the NES Classic, my immediate thought was, “What if Nintendo makes an SNES Classic?!” That system has a special spot in my heart for being a critical part of my gaming life as a 90s kid. It also doesn’t hurt that the games on this console are some of the greatest of all-time.

In this 10-part series, I’ll highlight three games that I would like to see in a hypothetical SNES Classic.

Part 1

Let’s continue with part 2!

Donkey Kong Country

At the dawn of the PlayStation era, Donkey Kong Country stunned the world with visuals that looked better than anything that the next generation of consoles could output. It may not have the same oomph graphically in modern times, but the game still looks great, features a timeless soundtrack and is still a lot of fun to play.

Super Punch-Out!!

Rarely held in the same regard as its predecessor, I actually think that Super Punch-Out!! is the apex of the series. Bold graphics and a deeper combat engine make for a thrilling arcade boxing game. The only thing it’s missing is Mike Tyson, but I’ll gladly let him slide for an overall better game.

X-Men Mutant Apocalypse

Take the X-Men license. Now put them in a Mega Man X style action platformer and give them Street Fighter style special move inputs. The end result is X-Men Mutant Apocalypse. I love all three of those things and this game is still a joy to play. Not sure why it’s fallen off the radar for most, but it’s certainly one worth revisiting.

In summary, the games on this list so far are:

Super Mario World
NHL 94
Donkey Kong Country
Super Punch-Out!!
X-Men Mutant Apocalypse
