It wasn’t too long ago that one of the prototypes for the SNES-CD system, otherwise known as the Nintendo Playstation, were discovered. Shortly after, the BIOS files for the system were dumped (basically, the operating system that would have made it run). There were no games released for it, of course, so that left the homebrew community to fill in the gaps.
Super Boss Gaiden isn’t the first SNES-CD game to be created by the fans, but it’s the most elaborate (and interesting) one to date. You play as the CEO of Sony, furious that the SNES-CD and its BIOS files are now out in the wild. You’re so angry that you decide to wreck the entire company with your own fists, and there the game begins.
Presumably Super Boss Gaiden would boot on an SNES-CD, but with only one surviving machine, there’s no way to tell for sure. Fortunately it was made in two formats and the first of these will work with any SNES emulator.
Super Boss Gaiden can be downloaded here, or if you don’t feel like playing right now, you can view the first 13 minutes of it in the video below…..
