Who wants to dust off their old Super Nintendo? Bust out the old TV adapter and pick up a corded controller. It's been almost 15 years since the last cartridge was made for the 16 bit system.
I play Tetris attack semi-regularly on my old SNES. I'll at least have to check this out.
JUST BOUGHT RETRO PORTABLE the system is awesome enable you to connect to your HD tv im playing SNES contra alien war 3 goood lord REAL arcade gaming is back. im able to play Contra Gradius R-type Battletoad/double dragon G-Darius DARIUS TWINS RUFF'N'TUFF etc....... i'll pass on first person shooter now.
Never knew about g-darius in the nintendo days. That is however one of my favorite games for the ps1. Those boss battles were the most epic to date at the time.
May just have to dust off the SNES Emulator! I still play Star Fox and Street Fighter 2 on my SNES EMu every now and then!
wow i cant believe there's actually more buzz for a super nintendo game than for a wii u game, but super nintendo is a better system and its getting more support than wii u
There is more buzz because it is a new super nintendo game. A very old system in other words.
They will never get $60 for a SNES game in this day and age though.
Well there are only something like 600 copies being made, so I assume the price is just as much a collector's price as anything else. Not to mention that for developers of this level, their skill level may mean that they actually had to put A LOT of hours into this, and the price point was created as a direct reflection of that. Who knows?
im more excited to this super NES than the wii u.
It's so ironic... I've been sat here saying they need to make a SNES game in 2013 and then they do... Pretty sure some crafty sod at nintendo has bugged my room..
"Feb 28, 2012 6:00 PM" Everything about this article is trolling us. 450 degrees for a Kotaku post from last year that has incorrect information in it to begin with. Benjaminkno... for shame
Finally a new game! Been waiting for a while now...
Skeptics were right...Games on Nintendo systems are few and far between!
Since last year! Last SNES game released: 2012. Last NES game released: 2013. You should check out Homebrew for the systems, there's tons of new content being released for NES. Not so much SNES but that may be changing. :) And the prices are usually about $35 per copy, maybe a bit more or less. Depends on the hardware, really. I'm an NES homebrewer BTW, hence why I am in to this stuff. :) But yeah there's some great games, I'd recommend checking them all out. Lots of great free ROMS of new games, just keep looking!
There is a thriving community of SNES devs out there making games on flashcarts. This is not news.
It's certainly news to me ... not all of us have the finger on that pulse like you my friend ...
This just in: Titanic sank! I kid, I kid. Seriously though, people have been doing this for so many years now you don't have to keep a "finger on the pulse" to know it. XXXD
I understand that some people aren't aware of niche developers, like those developing for SNES, NES, and Dreamcast, but they are out there, and there are a lot of them (well maybe fewer for dreamcast, but still) The point is, Kotaku does not do their research. There are quite a few people still developing for the SNES because it is easy and fun to develop for. Again, it is a niche market, so it is not expected that many people know about it, but a gaming "journalist" for Kotaku should, especially if it is the basis for their article.
2 or 3 games released last your for the snes. its really not new
LOL We need a New System Tab. Seems N4G got rid of the Super Nintendo tab too soon. "Why are you Posting Super Nintendo Info on a WiiU Tab?"
Because it's Kotaku.
Hahaha Best Comment Ever
wow, i bet now a days, it isnt to difficult or expensive to develop a game that looks like this, and theyre selling it for 60 bucks with no competition, pretty smart
Time to dust off my old Super Famicom.
I sold mine for weed money back in the early 90's :( Oh well, got a Wii U now so I can at least play some virtual console games. Maybe I'll find a stoner to sell me their SNES for $20 so I can play this game. Seems every pot-head has a "retro" system at their home, but no modern systems.
Haha I keep all my old systems, Still have my Master System, MD/Genesis, PS1 and PS2 as well. I just think they're good to have around as I like the old games and I don't want to re-buy the new re-released versions if I already have the original versions.
like someone give a "¤"#
I dusted mine off recently - amazed at how yellow it's gotten!
hehe mine isn't that bad, just the bit around the Super Famicom logo and the controller ports have gone yellow, the rest is still the normal colour.
The Phantom Pain is Atari 2600 exclusive !!
Pointless. Just make a game for PC...any modern computer can do the equivalent of a SNES game. And then you have 100000x the potential customers. And don't tell me that the point is nostalgia. You can have nostalgia for an old school style game on any platform.
Your statement makes me question your credentials as a gamer. The SNES is the greatest console in existence, and if someone wants to make a game for it, I say all the power to them.
You question my "credentials" because you misread my comment as if it were a shot at the SNES or someone's "right" to make a game for it (as fanatics always word it when they think something is under fire). What, do you think a game being on a platform where everyone can enjoy it does NOT trump making a game on a cart to cash in on nostalgia? You can question my credentials as a SNES fanboy, because I'm not one, but not as a sensible gamer.
I didn't misread your comment. You took a jab with your usual sarcastic style at people who want to make a SNES cartridge and told them they should put it on PC. You don't care that they may not want to put it on PC, or if they are specifically targeting people who still have a SNES (like collectors for example), or if they are doing it just to stand out among the hundreds of devs that make stuff for the PC. You made a crack, a bad one at that, plain and simple.
