Building My Perfect SNES Classic: Part 6

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
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

Let’s continue with part 6!

Super Mario Kart

One of the most no-brainer choices for this, Super Mario Kart revolutionized racing games. I think that its been surpassed by others in the series, but the original is still a treat to go back to.

Super Bomberman 2

I remember this one fondly for its battle mode. We didn’t have the multi-tap, so we only played two-player battle mode. However, it was a blast (sorry). I know there were three in the Super Bomberman series, but this is the only one I played. If we could somehow incorporate a multi-tap into the SNES Classic, this would be perfect.

Tetris Attack

Hands-down my favourite puzzle game. It’s come back in many forms, such as Pokemon Puzzle League on the Nintendo 64 or Planet Puzzle League on the DS, but Tetris Attack on the Super Nintendo was the first and my favourite take on this brilliant puzzler. My brother and I will battle each other in this till the end of time, as its versus mode is perfect. Even the slowdown that occurred as things got too frenetic just made the game better, as it gave you a bit more time to think while acting as a sort of reminder of how awesome you are. Due to licensing, my gut says that its inclusion on a real SNES Classic is unlikely, but this is one that I will fight for if there’s a fight to be had to get it in there.

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
Super Metroid
Street Fighter II Turbo
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
NBA Live 95
Contra 3: The Alien Wars
Super Mario All-Stars
Disney’s Aladdin
Mortal Kombat II
Super Mario Kart
Super Bomberman 2
Tetris Attack
