NEW 'Super Nintendo' game (Yes, Super Nintendo!) Game In Development for 2013

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.

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

AO1JMM1340d ago

There is more buzz because it is a new super nintendo game. A very old system in other words.

Gamer19821340d ago

They will never get $60 for a SNES game in this day and age though.

TruthbeTold1340d ago

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?

TAURUS-5551340d ago

im more excited to this super NES than the wii u.

IAmLee1340d ago

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..

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.

Skeptics were right...Games on Nintendo
systems are few and far between!

3GenGames1340d ago

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!

parkerpeters1341d ago

There is a thriving community of SNES devs out there making games on flashcarts. This is not news.

Temporary1340d ago

It's certainly news to me ... not all of us have the finger on that pulse like you my friend ...

Lord_Sloth1340d ago (Edited 1340d ago )

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

parkerpeters1340d ago

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.

Farsendor11340d ago

2 or 3 games released last your for the snes. its really not new

CouldHaveYelledUiiW1341d ago

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?"
