    Default How many SNES games is there in total?

    so, i was watching ZetaPlays' videos on youtube and i saw that he had over 1700 snes games... some people claim that there are only 785 of them :P

    i'm just really annoyed when i have only 771 of them and i don't want to miss any good games. :P (i play on emulators haha) just yesterday i came up with these ones: DoReMi adventure, Firemen, The adventures of batman & robin...

    so how many are there actually?

    The US library is in the 700's. But when you factor in Super Famicom and SNES PAL games, there are easily well over 1,500.

    Good choices regarding DoReMi and The Firemen -- excellent games, particularly DoReMi which I find to be one of the most charming 16-bit video games around

    DP rarity guide only lists 729...unless I counted wrong

    Outside of non US games, it's also possible the youtube guy is counting doubles.

    That's why you use wikipedia as a reference book and not as a reference itself. In otherwords, use it's references as your references. Which leads to this list from Nintendo...

    In Japan at least, those would be Super Famicom games...so they wouldn't be counted. I know...semantics, semantics

    According to byuu's web page about preservation, there are 720 US games, 1442 JP games, and 534 EU games.

    http://byuu.org/preservation/

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure, however, that the 720 US total doesn't include Super Noah's Ark 3D. And I know for sure that it doesn't include Player's Choice label variations and Majesco reprints.

    The Exertainment MBR/Speed Racer did get a limited release, I imagine it only got bought by a few gyms that carried the bike. About half the known copies came from the stash that anotherfluke got at a Nintendo employee sale.

    Also, Edmond Dantes, old meme is old.

    So, then you would argue that the total would be 724?
    It's official, my snes cart only collection is complete! The collection includes both competition carts, ISS, ISSD, EMBR/SR and Super Noah's Ark 3D.

    Soon Nightmare Busters will come out so that's another one to add to the list.

    Default Still questioning the SNES games total

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I'm closing in on completing a complete cart-only retail-released SNES cartridge set, and I want to get my ducks in a row, since according to my below reasoning, I only have 27 games left to go to complete a retail-released US SNES set.

    It seems that Exertainment MBR/Speed Racer waas never released to retail (An employee warehouse cleaning sale doesn't count as a retail release.) and that the 2 competition carts were only available to people who had memberships with Nintendo Power, so it seems that these 3 carts shouldn't count in a retail-released set. It does seem that Super 3D Noah's Ark, ISS, ISSD, and Super Copa were all released to retail, and so they should all be counted in a retail-released set. I do understand that Super 3D Noah's Ark (and Nighmare Busters when it's finally released) wouldn't count in a licensed SNES set, but they would (and will) count towards a retail-released set.

    I also dount count the Super Bomberman Party Pack, because the game is exactly the same as the regular release, and I'm only going for a cart-only set. This Super Bomberman Party Pack would only count for someone trying to complete a complete boxed set, since the box is different.

    So, If I take the DP SNES list of 722 and deduct the 2 competition carts, Exertainment MBR/Speed Racer, and Super Bomberman Party Pack and then add ISS, ISSD, and Super Copa, then I come to the number 721 being the total for a retail-released cart-only US SNES set. (When Nightmare Busters is finally released, then this number will of course go up by one.)

    Any more thoughts? Or am I missing/forgetting anything?

    MBR/SR was found in the wild pre garage sale. Multiple collectors had copies as well way before the stash came to light. It was out there to be had, and should remain included.

    Nigtmare Busters will never be on the list as retail released as the SNES is no longer in production or sold at retail. Its aftermarket/homebrew/repro category

    The 3 Mexico soccer games is really up to you. They have shaky information surrounding them to include in a US set, but they are NTSC, and could be included in a North/South American set.
