[Let’s Talk] Potential SNES Mini games

Posted on April 22, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Let's Talk

A big rumor surfaced this week about Nintendo potentially creating a SNES Mini for release later this year. Whether or not that actually happens remains to be seen. But with the NES Classic Edition / NES Mini being such a big hit, the possibility is certainly there.

So let’s say that Nintendo does move forward with the SNES Mini. What games would you like to be included? Titles such as Super Mario World and Zelda: A Link to the Past would probably be safe bets. Are there any far out games you’d like to see though? What would be your dream lineup? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: April 2017 Nintendo Direct reactions

Locky Mavo

I liked it quite a lot. I like how they managed to fit it just enough info on all the, some unexpected, titles for 3DS and Switch and new hardware. I’m keen to play Splatoon 2’s hoard mode. ARMS was good too, but I think they dragged that vs match a little too long. Min Min looks pretty cool, but I was hoping to see at least 2 new characters, but least we know there’s more coming with those eagle-eyed “leaks”, though it was never in doubt. The 2v2 mode looked awesome too. Payday 2 was the biggest surprise imo, and it was good to finally hear hear about the last 3 Smash amiibo, they look great and all those release dates! June-July sounds like it’ll be a good time for Switch.
Overall, I think it was a good Direct, I expect at least 1 more before E3, and I think Nintendo’s E3 is going to be really good this year. Only 2 more months to go!


I actually liked how they showed Monopoly played with HD rumble acting as dice. In fact I liked the presentation of the smaller games. ARMS 2-on-2 makes thing very interesting.


Well they showed a few seconds of Garou: Mark of the Wolves during the Neo Geo segment, so that obviously means this was the greatest Direct ever.

I know I already brought this up before repeatedly, but seriously, that made my day. Portable Garou, hell yeah. Would be even better if it had online play and if there was a Joy Con with a real dpad I guess, but whatever, not going to let that diminish my enthusiasm.

Other stuff I liked was the new amiibos, especially the 2X Bayonetta/Cloud surprise, didn’t see that coming. And MM Link, gotta have that one too…

Ever Oasis was looking good, so did Sine Mora EX and Battle Chasers.

A release date for Culdcept Revolt was nice, looking forward to that.

They also managed to get me more interested in Arms than I was before, which I assume was their intent, so job well done. (Was already sold on Splatoon 2 thanks to the testfire, but getting to see more of that didn’t hurt either.)

Probably some other stuff I’m forgetting right now…

So all in all, I wasn’t expecting too much from this Direct due to the way they announced it, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. Well played Nintendo.

    The original Star Fox has never been released on the virtual console so that would be a great addition and… How about the finished but unreleased Star Fox 2?!?!?

  • Lolo

    We need the Donkey Kong Country Trilogy, and some of the platforming Kirby games.

    First games that come to mind are FFVI and Chrono Trigger of course… 🙂

    I’d also like to see SMT 1 and 2 on there but that will obviously never happen.

  • Vigilante_blade

    Sadly, it’s impossible to do this system justice with 30 games. I would potentially choose in no particular order:

    1. Super Mario RPG
    2. Lufia 2
    3. Donkey Kong Country 2
    4. Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World.
    5. F-Zero
    6. Super Mario Kart
    7. Yoshi’s Island.
    8. Chrono Trigger.
    9. Final Fantasy 6.
    10. Star Fox.
    11. Super Metroid
    12. Megaman X
    13. Super Castlevania IV
    14. Tetris Attack
    15. Contra III
    16. Earthbound
    17. Kirby Superstar
    18. Kirby’s Dream Course.
    19. Secret of Mana (But I’d rather Seiken Densetsu 3 translated)
    20. TMNT Turtles in time
    21. Zelda: A Link to the Past.
    22. Final Fantasy IV
    23. Donkey Kong Country
    24. Wild Guns
    25. Ogre battle
    26. Street Fighter 2
    27. Super Ghouls and Ghosts
    28. Super Punch Out!!
    29. Wario’s Woods
    30. Megaman X 3

    Bonus: Shaq Fu.

    • Aline Piroutek

      N64 will be easier to choose the 30 games. Does it have 30 relevant games?

      • Vigilante_blade

        Sure, it does.

        1. Zelda OOT
        2. Zelda MM
        3. Super Mario 64
        4. Super Smash Bros.
        5. F Zero X
        6. 1080 Snowboarding.
        7. Waverace.
        8. Mario Party 2
        9. Mario Kart 64
        10. Yoshi Story
        11. Paper Mario
        12. Star Fox 64
        13. Donkey Kong 64
        14. Mario Tennis
        15. Mario Golf
        16. Pokemon Stadium
        17. Ogre Battle 64
        18. Megaman 64
        19. Mischief Maker
        20. Mario Party 1
        21. Mario Party 3
        22. Pokemon Puzzle League.
        23. Pokemon Snap (hate it, but some would want it)
        24. Sin and Punishment
        25. One of the many Bomberman games
        26. Harvest Moon 64
        27. Kirby 64
        28. Worms armaggeddon
        29. Turok.
        30. Extreme G.

        Got some nice variety there. Heck, Animal Crossing 64 could even get in that action. Imagine that game localized. A good selling point.

        I had an easier time making a like of N64 games than with Wii and Wii U honestly. And that is after removing all Rare games.

        • drearyworlds

          Ya forgot Castlevania 64!

          • Vigilante_blade

          • Vigilante_blade

            If they remade all of these games with an option to play without motion controls, I’d be okay with it. However, this is a list of games I personally find worthy.

            Monster Hunter Tri
            Mario Kart Wii
            Tatsunoko VS Capcom
            Dokapon Kingdom
            The Last Story
            No More Heroes 2
            Punchout Wii
            Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn
            Rune Factory Frontier
            Guilty Gear XRD
            Fortune Street

            … I can’t think of any other.

            If they took away motion inputs, it might be possible?

  • JasonBall

    If they can get the Super FX chip under control, StarFox and Yoshi’s Island are an instant buy for me. Other than that, EarthBound, TetrisxDrMario, FF 4 or 6, Dream Land 3 and Mario all Stars are the ones I’d want that aren’t already guaranteed.

  • FutureFox

    Throw in Mickey’s Magical Quest along with the usual classics and you might have something there.

  • ShadowDragoon

    i still own a SNES in perfect conditions along with a large collection of games, so i have no interest in a mini version.

  • I would be interested in see what games would be included. I never had a SNES, had a Genisis, so I would totally try and get one to make up for lost time. But I don’t know what it really has besides the obvious first party titles. I do love Super Punch Out however.

    I would say it’d be nice to have the Disney games (though would probably be impossible) but I heard that the Genisis versions were better. Super Star Wars would also most likely be a no go.

  • Aline Piroutek

    All special chip games, emulation of these games are trash when you know the original.
    1-Megaman X
    2-Chrono Trigger
    3-Final Fantasy VI
    4-Goofy Troop
    5-Top Gear
    6-Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles : Turtles in Time
    7-Gradius III
    8-Mighty Morphing Power Rangers The Movie
    9-Super Bomberman
    10-Donkey Kong Country
    11-The legend of Zelda : A Link to Past
    12-Super Mario World
    13-Super Mario Kart
    14-Super Castlevania IV
    15-Super Contra
    16-Kirby Super Star
    17-International Superstar Soccer
    18-Super Street Fighter II
    19-Super Ghouls and Ghosts
    21-Super Mario RPG
    22-Star Fox
    24-30 Add more SUPER titles and sequels like the awesome Megaman X3

  • Okay, so I’m fully aware that the following list is really just my fangirlish dream with no reality of actually happening (especially since a lot of these never made it outside of Japan in the SNES era). I don’t care. You asked me what games I’d like to see most, and here they are:

    1. Super Mario World
    2. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
    3. Super Mario RPG
    4. Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    5. Super Metroid
    6. Kirby Super Star
    7. Kirby’s Dream Course
    8. Castlevania: Dracula X
    9. Gradius 3
    10. Earthbound
    11. Donkey Kong Country
    12. Donkey Kong Country 2
    13. Tetris Attack
    14. Mega Man X
    15. Mega Man X2
    16. Mega Man X3
    17. Chrono Trigger
    18. Final Fantasy 4
    19. Final Fantasy 5
    20. Final Fantasy 6
    21. Secret of Mana
    22. Seiken Densetsu 3
    23. Illusion of Gaia
    24. Robotrek
    25. Lufia & the Fortress of Doom
    26. Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals
    27. Breath of Fire 2
    28. Dragon Quest 1&2
    29. Dragon Quest 3
    30. Dragon Quest 5

    Realistically speaking though, I would go out of my way for a Super NES Classic even if it only had like a small handful of these. It’s still one of my favorite consoles of all time and was full of timeless gems. I just know what I liked most. ^_^

    • Vigilante_blade

      You put Lufia 2 on there. You pass.

  • Invitado

    There’s a important point. If it had 30 games, wouldn’t cost 60 dollars, and I guess the price would be about 100 dollars (minimum), so if it real, it will have 15 games to cheap price

  • I hope it comes to fruition. I hope they do all the way up to a Gamecube Mini, especially if they intend to release GC VC for the Switch. ♥ Animal Crossing PG, and a new Animal Crossing on one hybrid-portable!? Yes, please!

    As for the SNES Mini? Third party galore, ya’ll. Both Breath of Fire games, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy, Earthbound (with unaltered localization!), Bahamut Lagoon (finally officialy translated), Gradius 3, Ogre Battle, Mega Man (esp X), Secret of Mana.

    I’m not interested in Lufia, but I know they’re cult classics.

  • drearyworlds

    Super Mario World
    Super Mario All-Stars
    Super Mario RPG

    Chrono Trigger
    Donkey Kong Country 1/2/3
    Super Ghouls and Ghosts

    Contra III
    Secret of Mana

    That’d be a solid lineup that would knock it out of the park for me.

    29. Super Punch-Out
    30. Super Street Fighter II

  • Ramon

    My cousin had an SNES and when I went over to his house I’d play with him, so a game that I would really like to see is Killer Instinct, that is one of my all time favorite games. Although I highly doubt it will happen since that a game on the XBONE right now.
