The Super NT, a little console by Analogue chock-full of SNES games, comes with a cool little surprise. Super Turrican: Director’s Cut will be released for the first time. This is the complete, original, untrimmed version of the Super Turrican released in 1993, and the Director’s Cut is 50% larger in file size. Analogue’s Christoper Taber says it has “a new level with new music, more enemies, better sound effects and graphics and even a new way to use the beam weapon.”
For those who haven’t heard, the Super NT is a reimagining of the SNES. It’s described as “the definitive way to explore Nintendo’s 16-bit era” and is compatible with the 2,200+ SNES and Super Famicom game cartridge library.
Whether you played Turrican in your youth or not, it is bound to be a new experience.

DidYouKnowGaming? and Unseen64 published a video today investigating a number of Nintendo-related pitches. Some were previously known, while others are entirely new.
One interesting pitch is tied to Retro Studios. In mid-2007 or so, following the end of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption’s development, a very small team within the company pitched a revival of Kid Icarus. It was supposedly led by Jason Behr, a veteran designer at Retro.

A couple of decades later, Star Fox 2 finally made its debut on the Super NES Classic Edition. Famitsu decided to ask Nintendo how the release happened. In an interview with Famitsu, Kazuhiro Maruyama, Takao Shimizu, and Kazuyoshi Nishi explained the situation.
