[Shut up and take my money!] SNES Mini. Or my 2017 Christmas gift

Sega Does what Nintendo don’t. But what happens when Nintendo strikes twice before you can even try to counterattack?

Ok, I know, it’s not the news of the day anymore. Don’t think I’m living in an uiniverse delayed of one month. However looking at my shiny SNES every night before going to sleep (it’s standing along with all the  other consoles and games just in front of the bed 🙂 ) makes me think  about this news, still unconfirmed (in Nintendo style).

After the immense success of the NES Mini, even if its promotion was a sort of pleasure and pain, suddenly Nintendo decided to discontinue their NES replica. Then, a few days after, the wish a lot  of dreamers expressed months ago, namely the hope that NES Mini were only the first of a series of new micro consoles, became true (kind of).

Even though Nintendo still hasn’t confirmed nor denied this conjecture, it looks like this Christmas on the shelves we’ll have a new retro replica, this time based on the SNES, maybe the most important console ever released by the japanese firm.

This Mini craze could be very proficient for Nintendo, considering the fact that NES Mini, even with its availability problems and the quick discontinuation after a few months, proved to be a success probably even bigger that what they thought in Japan, selling 2,3 million units, an incredible number for a replica of a 30 years old console. If you consider that GameCube sold slightly more than 20 million units and was on shelves for 9 years, well…do the math!

Since there’s nothing official, at the moment all the hype is just a speculation but we want to dream a bit about this mysterious item. Assuming that it will feature 30 built-in games, as it was for NES Mini, I would like to ask to all of you what games should be mandatory. I wrote down a list only of 10 so you’re free to add your own picks.

  1. Super Mario World
  2. Super Mario Kart
  3. Super Metroid
  4. Donkey Kong Country
  5. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior
  6. Super Ghouls and Ghosts
  7. Breath of Fire
  8. Earthbound
  9. Super R-Type
  10. Final Fantasy VI

Something missing? Whrite down in the comments section the games you think that deserve to be featured in thre SNES mini, I hope we can arrive to 30! 🙂
