The retro gaming scene is getting overcrowded these days and, after many years of retrogaming done for the most part by using emulators, it is now the time of compact, and fully licensed, real hardware.

The operation actually started many months ago, when the remake of classic original Nintendo was released, bundled with a selection of 30+ games (but with a single controller). The interesting thing is that Nintendo rebuilt and distributed differently shaped consoles according to their original market, so Japan actually got a cute remake of a console that we never saw in this part of the world.

The REAL, original Nintendo

I actually missed the first remake a year ago, so I decided to get the SuperNintendo Mini release, and I must admit that it looks awesome in my son’s room.

Most of all, playing together with my son games that were supposed to be long gone is definitely priceless, besides being a nice way to pass him our extensive video game knowledge thus preserving the memory of the past.

Donkey Kong Country!!!

Se here we were, browsing through the main menu in order to choose the right game to play together.

Here is a brief insight into what we did…

And here is the complete list of the games included in this release.

  1. I got a Retron5 myself here and i personally think that is the better product due to supporting carts and more systems.. that said, the NES and SNES mini’s has to be some of the best looking console remakes out there 🙂

  2. What that Beautiful, Original hard to recreate in a compact size. It is a work of art. Looks like a miniature, So cute! It is a good reproduction of the package.
    I did like were the minor title for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Do you know the “Nosferatu”? (It is very similar to the “Prince of Persia”)
    In this list, interested in the “Castlevania”.
    And, It is nice to “Donkey Kong” too. ^^

  3. EWJ1 shouldn’t be on this list, because the SNES version is just a gimped port of the Genesis version…same with MK1. Nobody decapitated anyone in the SNES version of MK1 either, because it was censored to shit…also Super Street Fighter is inherently better than Turbo, too bad Nintendo couldn’t get the Western version working on their Canoe emulator.

  4. So, who wants to help me? England, UK, 2002 (give or take), SNES (one assumes), and RPG overworld game (I think). The question is, what game did I use to play? Help me find my memory. I am half thinking of a ‘marketplace’ and half thinking of ‘open fields’, finding monsters along the way — but I was 6 at the time, lest we forget. Not sure if the game was A Link to the Past, Breath of Fire II, Secret of Mana, Soul Blazer, or something else! Anybody know which were known/unknown at that time and place?
