      I was born after the SNES era so strictly speaking I don't have and "nostalgia " for Super Nintendo, but even still, I got to know many huge hits from the era, from the Super Mario Advance Remakes, Kirby Super Star Ultra on DS, Super Mario 25th anniversary version, vice versa. I enjoyed those games as much (or even more) than many modern titles, and that's one of the reasons why I bought the SNES Classic. Seeing those classics from only a retrospective view, I've missed out the hype and feelings before those games were out and when they first hit the shelves. By looking at those concept art and vivid images, it really feels like in the 90s, a golden era of the SNES.

      More Historical Guide Than Strategy Guide

      If you are looking for in depth help on the games included with the SNES Classic you will be disappointed with this book. If however you are interested in the history and development of the system and its games you will LOVE it. Promotional items, Japanese only releases, and souveneirs are catalogued as well as very detailed info on the creation of the games. There is a small amount of strategy included but it is not the focus of the book.

      I purchased this item thinking it was the new Classic Snes gaming console. I was wrong and nowhere on the front of this stated, this was a strategy guide. Which i will take responsibility for the goof, but they could have had a sticker on the front stating " This is book. Also, this book is non returnable. Be careful

      I was a Super Nintendo person back in the day. I had a SEGA but the system didnt have the content the Super Nintendo had. Mortal Kombat blood although edgy wasnt enough for the Genesis to stay. This book highlights the games that killed the SEGA Genesis.

      A great companion to the Snes classic edition. Is super cool. I wish the slip cover was thicker like the Nes version. Still nice through.

      Purchased as a gift for someone who grew up when the Super NES Classic was new, and who played it constantly. So this should be a good gift.
