Punch-Out has gone by many names (Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out, Punch-Out Featuring Mr. Dream, or just Punch-Out!!) but it’s remained a perennial favorite since its debut in the arcades as an impressive two-screen machine. It hasn’t gotten many sequels since its NES port, but it did get a turn on the Super NES in the form of Super Punch-Out. The game was sold and marketed as a one-player experience, but it turns out it had a hidden two player mode this entire time.
Breath of Fire is one of the first JRPG games I ever played, right along with Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy IV. Pokemon was the game that got me into JRPGs, but I want to play something with a really engrossing story. Breath of Fire has an interesting story, characters, and…some translation errors, but will it live up to it’s very day as one of the greatest JRPGs out there?
You can now secure a copy of Ultimate Nintendo: Guide To The SNES Library on Kickstarter. What is that, exactly, you ask? Allow us to explain….
If you’ve been impatiently drumming your fingers on the desk, waiting for Nintendo to support something other than the NES in their Nintendo Switch Online service, we have excellent news: the wait may not be much longer. Data miner and modder KappucinoHeck did some poking in the NSO code and discovered a placeholder list of SNES games, which he proceeded to tweet:
Later this month, Mega Man Legacy Collection will be released for Nintendo Switch, featuring all ten mainline games in the Blue Bomber’s history. After that, in July, Mega Man X Legacy Collection will come out for all major consoles. You could collect Mega Man history that way, or you could go for the gusto…
Nintendo has been saying for a while that they intend to support the Nintendo 3DS for a while, including 2018 and beyond. When asked what they meant about that, they noted that they would be releasing more versions of the 3DS for players to get. At Gamescom 2017, a new version of the system was announced, with a catch.
Last October we reported that a prototype for Rayman on the SNES existed. The proto was from the very earliest days of development when Michel Ancel’s original platformer was intended to debut on the SNES-CD. This obviously didn’t happen, and the game would ultimately come out on the Playstation and Saturn instead.
Nintendo only announced the SNES Classic yesterday, but that hasn’t stopped eBay sellers from already listing the system online at more than double the retail price. Eurogamer reported that multiple sellers on the auction site have put their pre-orders up for sale, ranging in price from £180 to £300. Whilst most of the listings are around the £200, that is still more than double the £80 price that stores were selling the system at.
It looks like the Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 will be releasing at some point in the near future, as the bundle has been rated for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in South Korea. The ratings board entry reveals that this collection will include Mega Man 7 through 10, ensuring that all of the classic titles from the series are available on the latest consoles.
Back in 1992, Shigeru Miyamoto was interviewed by Famicom Tsuushin upon the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Now a full translation of that revealing interview is online thanks to the efforts of Shmuplations.com. Here are the five most interesting quotes pulled from out of time….
To give a little background, the Super NES had a fancy satellite service that allowed players to download games from space during designated time periods. The service was never sold outside of Japan, and many of the games that appeared on the service were never sold again in any form. This included a remix of Link to the Past, a 16-bit remake of the original Zelda game, a second SNES F-Zero featuring new tracks, and “Radical Dreamers,” a text adventure from Square that would eventually turn into Chrono Cross.
A developer has created an emulator for the Xbox One that allows users to play classic Nintendo games through the Edge browser. Nesbox works using ROMs uploaded via OneDrive to play files from the NES, SNES, Genesis, GameBoy, and GameBoy Advance.
