SNES Games That Should Come To The New Nintendo 3DS

By on

After last week?s Nintendo Direct presentation announced that SNES games would be coming to the New Nintendo 3DS, fans everywhere were ecstatic. Many fans consider the SNES to be one of the best game consoles of all time, filled with quality titles and 16-bit visuals that still hold up today.

March alone brings some quality SNES games to the handheld platform, with Super Mario World now available and Earthbound slated for a March 24 release. Of course, there are other titles that fans will want to see on the New 3DS eShop and this article will list a few of those games.

Super Star Wars Trilogy

At the time, these were the best Star Wars games, offering wonderful visuals and plenty of side scrolling action. Each game is based on a film from the original trilogy, with plenty of classic characters to use like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia.

The first game was recently re-released on the PS4. With Star Wars now more popular than ever, it would be great seeing these titles on the New 3DS eShop.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4: Turtles in Time

Many fans would argue that this is still the best game based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) and who could blame them? Turtles in Time had ridiculously fun beat-em-up gameplay and a two-player support, which made beating up Bepop and Rocksteady more fun.

Considering the lack of quality beat-em-ups in the modern age of gaming, it would be great seeing this title come to the handheld.


Considering how Microsoft purchased developer Rare some time ago, this might not be possible, which is a shame. Battletoads seemed like a TMNT rip-off, but ended up being one of the best games in the SNES library.

The game had some of the most over the top fighting moves, like headbutts turning into goat horns and kicks turning into big boots. It also has the best pause music of all time and would be fun to listen to on the New 3DS.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Before Paper Mario or the Mario and Luigi series, there was Super Mario RPG. The game was one of the premiere RPG titles of the system, offering detailed graphics and innovative battle mechanics that stayed true to the series platforming.

Developed by Final Fantasy developer Square Enix (then known as Square Software), Super Mario RPG has yet to get an official re-release. The game isn?t available in any platform?s eShop, which is why it should come to the New 3DS, since a lot of fans have missed this SNES RPG.
