    1. Agreed, if this had Chrono Trigger, it would be absolutely perfect.

  2. I don't know why, but the fact that they're releasing Star Fox 2 on this thing makes me absolutely livid. But, I won't get into it here.

    It's nice to see Mega Man X on there. Kind of odd that Mega Man 7 isn't, though... but I imagine that's because Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is on its way. Can't really complain about the selection of games, otherwise. Those are more-or-less ones I'd pick, despite my diverse tastes.

    1. Corretion: I was livid... at first. But! If the version of Star Fox 2 is the Winter CES '95 version with its rogue-light elements, vastly superior galaxy map and text interface and whatnot... I will be ecstatic!

      But, I'm also not holding my breath on that one...

  3. A very good collection of the best of the best, but I must agree that not having Chrono Trigger is a crime against the gaming gods. XD

  6. As much as I love Megaman X I've played it so much I would have hoped for X 2 and/or 3

  7. As much as I love Mega Man X, I have to say... I'm not nearly as interested in that game's inclusion as I am in Star Fox 2 finally seeing the light of day. That, along with the first Star Fox finally getting a re-release.

  8. They could of easily added a few more to make 30 games! Arkanoid, Chrono Trigger, DKC2 2, DKC 3, Final Fantasy 2, MegaMan X2, MegaMan X3, Super Bomberman 2, & Tetris Attack just for an example :/

    1. The US version is too good looking! Love the Grey, Purple, & Lavander!

    2. It's clearly Urple and Light Urple.

    3. I look forward to seeing the SF2 ROM getting dumped and seeing exactly what is different in this version(if at all). Also, seeing what games the emulator supports. Maybe not X2 and X3. Maybe a real Multitap will work with this and SoM will be playable with 3 people.

  11. I hope it can use cartridges, because if it can't like the NES classic, I'll pass.
    (Sees Star Fox 2)
    ...
    Well... may be worth for a new pair of controllers?

  12. As much as I love Mega Man X, I'm more interested in the addition of the Super FX titles, especially Star Fox 2. I am, however, looking forward to seeing this get modded, just like the NES Classic Edition. That way, other games can be added, maybe even Rockman & Forte.

  13. Got a preorder in for it on the Amazon uk site. The listing was taken off now...

    1. Same. It's worth it considering this will probably be in short supply in the U.S.

  14. I'm upset about the lack of games like Donkey Kong Country 2, Demon's Crest, Breath of Fire 2, Super Bomberman, and especially Chrono Trigger, but MMX is my favourite game of all time so I'm glad kiddos will get a chance to experience it, along with FF6, Earthbound, Yoshi's Island, Super Castlevania 4, Kirby Super Star, LttP, and SMRPG.

  15. ...Whoops. I didn't think my comment would appear twice. Then again, I did say something slightly different the second time.

  16. For everyone wishing Nintendo would have put more games on it,you do realize that you will probably be able to easily mod it to put whatever games on it that you like,right?

  17. So, I checked the list of games that the Japanese version will have, and once again, the U.S. doesn't get a re-release of Panel de Pon in any fashion; not even as Tetris Attack. Why does this game keep getting ignored so much? It's a similar situation with the first Contra/Probotector for the NES.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well frankly, the Japanese version is getting the short end of the stick imo, Mystical Ninja is cool and should be in all versions imo, but no Super Castlevania IV is a huge pile of suck. And I'd take Super Punch-Out and Kirby's Dream Course over Super Soccer and Tetris Attack any day of the week.

    On the bright side, the lesser offering should make the Japanese version easier to get than the others.
