Nintendo might not have plans to bring Virtual Console to Switch, but that doesn’t mean somebody else won’t. In light of new details about how Nintendo Switch Online will work and the company’s plans to bring NES games to the handheld via a subscription service, at least one hacker and longtime Nintendo fan is trying…
Behold: A 1982 Montgomery Ward boombox that reels cassette tape and translates invisible signals broadcast over the air into rad tunes. Okay, that’s not exactly bleeding-edge tech. But, it has one thing other boomboxes haven’t got: a working SNES Classic inside.
Today from 10am to 6pm Pacific (1pm-9pm Eastern), Kirk and I will be streaming video games. We’ll be speedrunning Super Mario World, killing bosses in Mega Man X, and trying to figure out if Red Dead Redemption is a good enough real-life version of Westworld.
Secret of Mana is a broken game that I will always love. Playing through the recent remake forced me to reckon with why that is.
Nintendo has sold 4 million SNES Classics worldwide, it said today. Its president confirmed that it will bring back NES Classic this year and sell it alongside SNES Classic “as an opportunity to garner interest in Nintendo Switch from those who have not interacted with video games in a long time, or ever.”
When the Nintendo Classic Mini Super Famicom was announced for Japan earlier this year, there was one glaring omission: Mother 2 (Earthbound in the West). Nintendo recently explained to Famitsu why this is.
The SNES Classic hacking scene isn’t all about adding more games to Nintendo’s latest retro console. It’s also about adding pretty custom borders to really make those extra games pop.
Watch Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi and Square Enix artist Kazuko Shibuya drink some wine and play around on the SNES Classic. The stream is apparently the first episode in a series of let’s plays by Mistwalker looking back at past games Sakaguchi and others have worked on.
The Super Nintendo Classic has been out only a week and already there are videos circulating about how to add your own games. Like the NES Classic before it, this new retro device seems prime for emulation, and progress is moving very fast.
One, sixty-four, zero, two. That’s the order of release for Nintendo’s Star Fox series, and it’s the order that I’ve now played them. Star Fox Adventures and Command turned up in the middle, if we’re also counting releases with subtitles instead of numbers.
The Super Famicom Mini comes with 21 games pre-loaded, including the never before released Star Fox 2. But if you could add one game to it, what would it be?
Yesterday on Twitch, we spent some time getting nostalgic all up on the SNES Classic. If you missed it, you can catch the whole stream right here.
The bad news is the chances of snagging a Super Nintendo Classic at retails are pretty slim right now, and auction site eBay is probably your best bet if you want it ‘right now.’ The good news? The average price of a SNES Classic on eBay is only $164, $80 less than the NES Classic in the days after its launch.
The SNES Classic is finally out. Whether you got one, already had a Raspberry Pi, or decided to give into the hype and go secure an original SNES through Craigslist instead, you should probably take a moment to bask in the awesomeness of the console’s best speedruns.
The SNES is old. As much as I love the first Mario Kart, going back and loading up the Mode 7 graphics of Bowser Castle 1 feels quaint. A series of interviews with Nintendo developers from that era though serves as a good reminder of just how advanced the technology was at the time.
While we’ve reviewed the North American SNES Classic already, let’s not forget that those of us living in Japan, Europe and Australasia have gotten a slightly different console.
Nintendo’s absurdly anticipated SNES Classic console launched today, but somebody’s already ripped Star Fox 2 to a handful of original SNES cartridges, listed them on places like eBay and Etsy, and sold them.
One might expect, after the Great SNES Classic Pre-Order Debacle of 2017, that launch day would be a disaster. But it actually seems to have gone pretty well. You might not be able to just stroll into a store and snag one of the slick, limited-edition retro consoles, but it seems like people who put in a bit of extra…
It’s Super Nintendo Classic day, which means it is time for us to crack open the console, take a long hard look at the list of games that comes with it, and RANK THEM ALL.
The Super Nintendo Classic is a miniature blast of nostalgia, a sleekly packaged piece of hardware that will transport you back to the days of Dunkaroos and denim jackets. Although one could certainly complain about some of the choices Nintendo has made here, this is a mostly great package that highlights how well the…
