It's been years and years, but Nintendo finally officially released the SNES game Star Fox 2, on their SNES emulator console called SNES Classic. Originally this game was going to be released on the SNES, back in the 1990s, but Nintendo ended up implementing most of its gameplay features in Star Fox 64 instead (N64 was released around the time that Star Fox 2 was to be released, so they decided against releasing any more SNES games).

Now though, after years of Nintendo seeing increased interest in classic games (in the form of illegal ROMs downloadable on the internet), and realizing they still have the copyright on these games so they still have every right to sell them (even though they are decades old), Nintendo finally decided to release some of its own retro console emulators (first NES Classic, and now SNES Classic) with builtin ROMs. And with the release of the SNES Classic, they for the first time ever have release the game Star Fox 2. It's the final release-version of the game too, not the beta version available on SNES ROM websites. Even the most complete version of the game available on the internet is still just one of the last beta versions of the game, not the release-version. So this is the first time ever that you will get to play Star Fox 2. They have been sitting on the game for around 2 decades now, and finally they are releasing it. It's LONG overdue, but at least Nintendo did release it. I'm considering buying SNES Classic, just for that one game alone.

Note that to Star Fox 2 is not actually selectable to start with. Like characters in Super Smash Bros, you need to unlock it. But what conditions do you need to meet to unlock it? Fortunately it's really easy. You just need to beat level 1 of Star Fox to unlock Star Fox 2.

Now it would be nice to see Nintendo give the same treatment to BS Zelda, and Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets. Though these games were released, they were only released in Japan, and never in a standard cartridge (only playable by receiving the game over your Satellaview system). They should be put on a system maybe called SFC Classic (Super Famicom Classic), that includes English translations of games never before released in the US, as well as games that have previously been released in the US but with translations that are completely accurate translations of the Japanese in-game text (no localization / censorship, for example in Zelda: A Link to the Past, the Book of Mudora is actually supposed to be called the Bible), and also keeping the Japanese titles (but with English translation) when they differ from the US titles (for example Zelda: Triforce of the Gods instead of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Rockman X instead of Megaman X).

You know what would be even better? If Star Fox 2 wasn't exclusive to a product that doesn't exist in sufficient quantity to meet demand.

Would have been great if Nintendo put it out on its own cart. I mean, if Capcom can re-issue SNES StreetFighter II...

Well... the Iam8bit re-issue of SNES Street Fighter II has a warning on it saying that it can cause the console to catch fire, so I don't think it's such a good idea...
