Building My Perfect SNES Classic: Part 9

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
Part 6
Part 7

Let’s continue with part 9!

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong’s Quest

Not talked about nearly as much as its predecessor, Donkey Kong Country 2 is clearly the best of the Super Nintendo games in the series. Better level design and Dixie’s floating ability make for a game that played as well as it looked.

Tetris & Dr. Mario

I know I’m cheating again. But how can you turn down this mash-up of two of the best puzzle games of all-tie?

Killer Instinct

Originally designed for arcade versions of Nintendo 64 hardware, the SNES port of Killer Instinct managed to retain the quarter-munching thrills of the source material. Who wouldn’t want another crack at landing an ultra combo on Cinder?

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
Star Fox
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time
Chrono Trigger
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
Mega Man X
Illusion of Gaia
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong’s Quest
Tetris & Dr. Mario
Killer Instinct
