14. Star Fox 2 (2017)
When the news broke of Nintendo launching the SNES classic, the news of an official release for Star Fox 2 nearly twenty-five years after its intended release was Nintendo’s big marketing push for this product.
The game has been somewhat accessible amongst the Emulator community, with incomplete ROMs circulating the internet for many years, but we’re all curious as to what the finished product will be like. Whilst having superior 3D graphics, animation and frame rate to the original Star Fox, the game was cancelled due to the impending release of the PlayStation/Saturn whose 3D games made the technology of the SuperFX chip look entirely dated. With the N64 on the horizon, the decision was made to shelve the project entirely.
For those who have played the incomplete version, there will be massive optimism that the game will be finished strongly by Nintendo and thus a new ‘classic’ will officially enter into the SNES library, that again so few people will have enjoyed before. No doubt that the hype behind this new game justifies its entry so high amongst our list.
