Nearly 27 years ago, the world was given something that would redefine what it means to be a game. We’d get to walk the dinosaur, travel through Kong country, learn how to Shoryuken in the comfort of our own homes, and say “Fuzzy Pickles!” across a host of irreplaceable memories. All of this was on a super star of a system that grew from the foundation of its predecessor to improve the experience in every way. Greater graphics, iconic melodies, a smoother controller, and stories worth playing through again and again: these are what the SNES was all about.

We all love the Super Nintendo, maybe more than any system before or since. Some of us have played it since its release, others found it later. But all of us know better than to underestimate the undying legends of the Mana Tree, the Warring Triad and Castle Dracula. We’ve wished on our seven stars for a long time for something like this, and in just a few weeks we will have the Super NES Classic Edition in our hands to travel through these all once again. We’ll even have a new adventure through the Lylat System to give us that same sense of discovery and shared experience.

So in the lead up to this link to the past, we’ve decided to share our memories and stories with the games getting another chance to shine. For everyone who’s ever raced their way to victory in both a kart and an anti gravity racer, join us in our nostalgia and admiration. And if you wouldn’t know a Red Falcon from an Armored Armadillo, join us in looking forward to something Super.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
