Nin­tendo Ni Clas­sic Mini: M SNES

Nin­tendo, N cert 12

The Observer - The New Review - - RELEASES -

This is a retro-lover’s dream, com­bin­ing some of Nin­tendo’s best ef­forts into the same com­pact pack­age that proved so suc­cess­ful for last year’s NES mini. But the SNES it­er­a­tion is an im­prove­ment in ev­ery re­gard. The build qual­ity is just as ex­cel­lent but what el­e­vates it are the 21 games, plus the ad­di­tion of a sec­ond con­troller, es­sen­tial for Su­per Mario Kart. Cult favourites such as Se­cret of Mana and Earth­Bound fea­ture too, but Star Fox 2 is the head­line act. The 1995 game was never re­leased for fear of un­favourable com­par­i­son to PlayS­ta­tion ti­tles, so this is its first out­ing and it’s great. Even for those not struck by 1990s nos­tal­gia, the SNES Mini (RRP £69.99) is a worth­while pur­chase. Su­per Mario World , Su­per Metroid and Zelda are some of the best games ever made. Chris Dring
