Classic SNES Dream List

Classic SNES Dream List

Nintendo recently announced the upcoming release of Nintendo’s Classic NES.  If you haven’t heard about it, read about it here.  It’s going for the cheap price of $60 and has 30 NES games preloaded on it.  We definitely plan on getting at least one among us here at Popped.  (Sega followed suit a week later and is boasting 80 games.  They’re going for quantity over quality though in our opinion).  However, on last Tuesday’s show (available on our Patreon now!), we discussed which games we’d want to see on the Classic SNES.  No, we don’t have some secret information from Nintendo (but we will gladly listen to any secrets they want to tell), but we know this Classic NES will be a hit, so a Classic SNES has to follow, right?  So here’s our list of games we would want to see on the Classic SNES.

Super Mario World

Super Mario RPG


Donkey Kong Country

Mario Kart

Super Metroid


F Zero

Mega Man X

Mortal Kombat 2

Final Fantasy 3


Super Street Fighter 2

Sim City

Chrono Trigger

Super Bomberman


TMNT 4: Turtles in Time

Earthworm Jim

Mario Paint


That’s only 20 though.  If we could get it to 30, what would be YOUR picks?

    For my list, I used a few rules to make it more “realistic” in terms of what Nintendo could actually do because of licensing issues. So, no pro sports titles (Ken Griffey Jr. Presents MLB or NBA Jam); no IP now owned by Sony or Microsoft (Lemmings, Killer Instinct); no licensed TV, movie, or comic book characters (Spider-Man and Venom); nothing needing a special peripheral (Mario Paint). Here’s what I came up with.

    Chrono Trigger
    Contra III: The Alien Wars
    Donkey Kong Country
    Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest
    Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble!
    Earthworm Jim
    Final Fantasy IV
    Final Fantasy VI
    Final Fight
    Gradius III
    Kirby Super Star
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Mega Man X
    Star Fox
    Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers
    Super Castlevania IV
    Super Ghouls’n Ghosts
    Super Mario All-Stars
    Super Mario Kart
    Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
    Super Mario World
    Super Metroid
    Super R-Type
    Tetris & Dr. Mario
    Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
    Wing Commander
    Yoshi’s Island
