SNES or better known as Super Nintendo (world-wide) or Super Famicom/SFC in Japan was the 2nd generation video game console released by Nintendo (the first one was NES or Famicom – in Japan). Long story short, due to different preferences in regions, SNES/SFC ended up with 2 names (SNES – US and EU and SFC – JP) and 2 models (US model and JP/EU model).

I never owned a SNES as a small kid. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy SNES games. In fact, growing up to adults today, I play SNES games on multiple platforms: the original SNES at friends’ house, through SNES Mini Console or through emulators.

Here’s how to play these Super Nintendo / Super Famicom games today

If you are looking for the game list, do skip this section. But in case you are also looking for a way to play all these SNES games, here you go. These are the options available today.

1) Original SNES/SFC hardware and cartridge

The best way to enjoy the classic SNES games is by playing on the original hardware with the original cartridge!

3) SNES Emulators (with download links)

If hardware isn’t your thing, you can still enjoy these childhood memorable games via emulators. There are various SNES emulators existed throughout many platforms and consoles, but here they are the best one.

On Android: SNES9X EX+ (stand-alone emulator) or RetroArch (multiple console emulators, using BSNES Core).

On Computer: BSNES (Win) or RetroArch (Win/Linux/Mac, using BSNES Core).

on iOS: Provenance (have to do sideloading to install it, check here for full step by step).

Either you are emulating SNES on computer or smartphone, the games will be much better if played using a physical controller (rather than using touch-screen). Here’s my recommendation, controller I personally used to play games (including SNES games).

iPega 9083: For playing PC and Android games. I like it because the fact that it can be used both on PC and Android without much hassle (driver auto- detected and installed), plus when I’m playing any Android game, I can put my Android in between – just like a Nintendo Switch.
