The Nintendo Direct on September 4th brought some momentous news for longtime Nintendo fans. Subscribers to the Nintendo Switch Online service will have access not just to classic Nintendo Entertainment System games, but Super Nintendo Entertainment System games as well.
Twenty titles have been dropped, for free, into the eager laps of lucky Switch owners, including some absolutely essential releases.
Super Metroid is an atmospheric classic. Its Metroidvania formula often copied, seldom bettered in the 25 years since release. A Link To The Past is a milestone of the action RPG genre. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island is arguably the greatest platformer of all time.
With so much gaming goodness at once, it might seem greedy to ask for more - but who didn’t scan the list of titles and and feel a little disappointed that a personal favourite had been omitted?
So here are some SNES games we’d love to see come to Switch. Some included might not be possible due to various rights or licensing issues, but this is a wishlist - let’s not get bogged down in legalities.
