14. Star Fox 2 Is Finally Coming Out...22 Years After It Was Cancelled

Jaws dropped worldwide when it was revealed that Star Fox 2, a game that was originally intended for release on the SNES back in 1995 before being cancelled, would finally be available to the public as part of the upcoming SNES Classic Edition.

Even stranger is that Nintendo didn't bother to inform the game's original team about the inclusion, with Star Fox 2 programmer Dylan Cuthbert calling the announcement a "big fantastic surprise", but at least he seemed genuinely happy that the game would now be getting an official release.

Star Fox 2 was actually completed before being shelved due to the imminent release of the N64, and has been available in ROM form for years, but come September, fans will finally get to play it legally for the first time. How utterly, wonderfully bizarre.
