Nintendo Classic Mini SNES Comes With A Little Piece Of Lost History

Most of the games that come with the Classic Mini SNES, you’ll remember fondly from your youth (if you’re old enough). There’s one though that you most certainly won’t remember, because it never came out. That game is Star Fox 2. The game was completed and ready for release back in 1995, but with the N64 close to launch, Nintendo decided to can Star Fox 2, and the world had to wait another two years for a new Star Fox game – Star Fox 64, or Lylat Wars, depending on where you’re from.

You can now play this lost episode in the Star Fox saga and it’s fair to say that what was cutting edge in 1995 doesn’t stand up to close scrutiny in 2017. However, it’s a nice inclusion if one for the curiosity value.
