Nintendo dropped a double-whammy yesterday, announcing the Super NES Classic and confirming that one of the included games is Star Fox 2, the unreleased sequel to the best-selling original.

As you'll know if you've consulted our definitive feature on the topic, Star Fox 2 was supposed to be released in 1995 but Nintendo decided against it at the last moment. With the arrival of the Super NES Classic this much-hyped game is finally getting a proper release - and Nintendo has gone as far as to create official box art for it.


You know what would be really amazing? If Nintendo actually released this as a proper Super Famicom cartridge. While we doubt that will happen, it's surely only a matter of time before we see reproduction carts with full packaging appear.
