After the success of the NES Classic Edition, this Christmas season will see the release of a SUPER Nintento Classic Edition! Sadly, I missed out on the NES Classic, but if the rumors of an SNES Classic prove true, I will definitely pick one up if the game selection looks good. With that said, thoughts turn to what games may or may not be included on the system. I know there are a lot of licensing issues with some games that keep them from being included, but for the sake of this post, I’m going to ignore all of that and just focus on the games I WISH were included on it, whether it could ever happen or not. At the end, be sure to drop a line in the comments section about what games YOU want to see included.
Super Mario World
I don’t know how you could release a mini SNES classic and not include the flag-ship game of the original console. Mario IS Nintendo, and Super Mario World was not just the flagship title, but one of the best games on the system. It’s a shoe-in.
Super Mario Kart
Another Mario title, and the last one I’m including in this list. I know there are plenty more great Mario based games on the system, but I never really got into them. Mario Kart on the other hand is a classic with a quite a pedigree in the world of gaming, and is my personal favorite racing game on the system.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
The Zelda franchise is synonymous with the Nintendo brand, and this game has a reputation as being one of the better incarnations of the game. I played it a few times, and really hope it’s included in the mini version so I can finally get to sit down and play all the way through it.
Mega Man X
Another icon of the Nintendo era was Mega Man, and any system looking to capitalize on its history needs to include a Mega Man title. I never played this Mega Man for some reason, but I always loved the various Mega Man games on the NES, so I’d like to see this included to relieve those days.
