The SNES had many of it’s best Franchises from the NES jump into the 16-bit generation, but many also never got the 16 bit treatment.  Which would you have like to see?

 

For my money I was always sad to see that Excitebike never recieved a REAL release.  So much fun to race and build your own courses!

Solar Jetman: Hunt for the Golden War(p)ship. See below for the mis-spelling, i have that version.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S…..n_Warpship

I remember it being tough as old boots back when i was no older then 7 years. Quality adventuring game with surprising amount of atmosphere and charm. The physics of the craft and jetman are spot on. The overalll plight and lonliness of the said Solar Jetman is felt throughout the game (as long as you survive) where you pilot a shuttle around cavernous planets, exploring, fighting off alien attackers, and collecting fuel and treasure that you’d take back to your mothership with a tracker beam. A snes release with save feature and all the spruced up bits would of been amazing.

Hmmm, not necessarily franchises on NES but I would love to have seen sequels of:

-Kid Icarus
-Karnov
-Rampage
-Werewolf (I suppose Wolf Child had to suffice…)
-Conquest of the Crystal Palace
-Monster Party (can you imagine a 16-bit version!)
-Heavy Barrel
-P.O.W.

And, I just thought of an actual NES franchise:

Ninja Gaiden!!!!! Like, a REAL 16-bit sequel. Not a comp, although I’ve always liked NG Trilogy. I know not everyone’s high on it, but I like it 🙂

Ahh ive just remembered a classy game that would of been nice to sample on the Snes. I know it came out for the Nes but i had the Amiga version. Shufflepuck Cafe. Anyone remember it? I think it could of been really good fun 2-player on the Snes.

How about that World Cup Soccer game, which had the characters from “River City Ransom” / “Street gangs” in it… I know the latter saw a Snes version, but from youtube, it doesnt seem half as much fun.. I had street gangs for the nes and loved it. But i was stupid many years ago and sold the system and all my boxed games for it.. I also had World Cup Soccer, those two games were hilarious. The facial expressions were really funny, and i loved eating food in Street Gangs watching the whole face chomp down on a burger!

Shufflepuck Cafe? Never heard of it. Sounds like a whopper of a game. Is it similar to Burger Time?

Oh yes!!! I remember seeing that game in a Nintendo Power magazine and wondered often about it in my childhood. I believe it’s one of the games that utilized the 4 player adapter. Never played it, but I did play and love River City Ransom. I wish River City Ransom came to the SNES (though I suspect it may have in Japan).

Yeah, World Cup Soccer used the 4 player adapter, but i dont think i had it. If you still have a nes, you need to find a copy. Ive even considered getting a nes again simply for this game alone. This and Streetgangs.

 

And River City Ransom, or Streetgangs as it was called in europe, saw a sequel or something on the Super Famicom. Here is what i suspect is a translated rom, since i dont think it saw a release outside japan. It doesnt really impress me half as much as the original Nes title. But it may be good, ive never played it.

If you have a X-box 360 or PS3, there is a downloadable game very similar to River City Ransom/ Street Gangs:

 

 

I played it and it’s a lot of fun, but difficult like old school games tend to be.

Oh yeah Scott Pilgrim is a throwback to the good old days of 2 player scrolling beat-’em-ups, but its super impressive. The animation and amazing soundtrack are highlights but the array of moves and things to do keep it interesting. I really enjoyed it when i played it on my mates 360.

Awesome game evil-grin The best opponent is easily Lexan Smythe-Worthington who sips his champagne throughout the match.

That looks interesting. Too bad it didn’t come to the NES.

Actually it did, though only in Japan which is why i never played the NES port. It would of been even more interesting to of seen a SNES version of this game. Oh well..

Wait, wasn’t there a Ninja Gaiden game for the SNES? I only recently found out about this, I think.

Well, there was Ninja Gaiden Trilogy, and a great game that I plan on reviewing called Hagane.

 

But the former is a fun, if butchered port, and the latter is more akin to Shinobi than Gaiden.

 

That said, If this is true, LET ME KNOW LoL!  I will buy it ASAP!

Like Mongunzoo said, there is Ninja Gaiden Trilogy, which is just a compilation of the three NES games. Shame too, because I would have loved to see a trilogy of new Ninja Gaiden games for the SNES.

Rescue: the Embassy Mission. Played that game back then but was a bit difficult.The store took it back and I got to pick another game. Talking about customer service :) Still left an impression after all these years. Would have loved to see a snes version of it
