Axelay Gives Gamers Both Kinds of Shooters on Super Nintendo – Today in Retro Gaming – September 14th, 1992

Back in the day scrolling shooters were a dime a dozen.  To stand out from the crowd you had to have something unique in your shooter.  Just being a side or horizontal scroll shooter was not enough anymore.  Konami was, at this time, kicking butt with their other games- Castlevania IV, Contra III etc.  They […]

Enix Brings 7th Saga Stateside While Ignoring Gamer Pleas for Dragon Warrior 5 – Today in Retro Gaming – August 3rd, 1993

Who remembers the strong 8-Bit finale that Enix gave us as they wrote off the Nintendo Entertainment System?  They gave gamers ALL four Dragon Warrior games.  In Japan these games were called Dragon Quest- and in recent years Square Enix has resurrected them under that name on mobile platforms.  Anyhow, when the Super Nintendo came […]

Furry RPG is a New Super Nintendo Role Playing Game Currently in Development

New games for classic consoles are usually just hacks of previously released titles, occasionally we get an all new game.  Furry RPG is just that, a brand new game that will be powered by a Mode 7 heavy engine that is also all new.  Ramsis on the NESDev.com forums is the person handling this new […]

What Would Legend of Zelda- Wind Waker Look like on the Super Nintendo?

Recently we asked what would Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon look like on the Commodore 64.  This week we are asking, what would The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker look like on the Super Nintendo?  Thanks to a DeviantArt member, we don’t have to wonder what it might have looked like, we can see it.  […]

Konami Cracks the Belmont Whip in Super Castlevania IV on Super Nintendo- Today in History- December 4th, 1991

The Castlevania series is destined to go into the annals of gaming history as being an iconic series.  If video games crashed tomorrow, Castlevania games, in general, would be well regarded years to come.  Konami has not taken many chances with this franchise (I am ignoring the Nintendo 64) and played it fairly safe in […]

Bandit Gaming: F-Zero Ported to the Turbo Grafx-16, Called HuZERO

F-Zero, a series that started on the Super Nintendo has been a racing game that Nintendo pulls out of retirement from time to time to show off a new console or hand held.  Since this is a Nintendo branded game, it is obvious that F-Zero never hit any platforms other than ones manufactured by Nintendo […]

Happy 24th Birthday, Super Nintendo!

(The SNES is one year older than it was last year, so we updated our birthday tribute article, and by ‘updated’, we mean ‘changed a number in the title and re-posted it’. Come at us.) The hype was unreal. The tension was palpable. The gaming press couldn’t print information, rumor, speculation, and screenshots fast enough. […]

Contra III: The Alien Wars Leaps onto the SNES- Today in History: April 6th, 1992

When Nintendo launched the Super Nintendo fans rejoiced based on the hopes that 16-Bit updates of NES favorites would be coming soon.  This hope was kindled from the fact that Super Mario World was a pack-in cart (yeah, there was a time when systems came with games and TWO controllers).  While many NES classics did […]
