In October 2020 I did a feature on a project He tried to find every Super Nintendo guide in existence, scanned them and uploaded them to the internet. I am pleased to report that, as of July 2022, the project has now reached a critical juncture – and for many of you reading this is the first phase.
When I published this featureThe team (including Arachness, BuffaloJoe, Timber, SNES Central and Grant Karkhart) is working on the project.Led by steamer and archaeologist PeebsHas uploaded about 600 scans, and only about 100 guides remain until they have scanned the instructions for each game in the West during the life of the console.
It was a good development, but also, as they went deeper through the SNES library, it became more difficult to find a booklet for the most bizarre and rare games in the collection. Then, last week:
This means that the project archive now has an English guide for each Super Nintendo game that has been officially released in the language. Sometimes it’s the North American version, sometimes it’s the PAL (European / Australian) version, sometimes it’s both if only the cover art work, spelling and email address differ on the back (e.g. the way Contrast 3 Was called Super Probotter In PAL areas).
This is not enough of every game ever published in it WestBecause some games can get different special releases depending on the language market, but since this is an English language website I thought it was an important step for our readers to understand!
And it still is a lot Closed Team is just a game that the “Every West Guide Forever” achievement is ashamed of a single release: the original German-language version of the original Scan Fear before Christmas (Although they have a translated version of the rare English-language mega-drive version if anyone needs information).
Since then, though, it seems their work has never been done. Even when each guide has been scanned and uploaded, some games – including most RPGs – have important information written elsewhere, such as on separate maps / posters, so they can be uploaded and scanned whenever possible. Are looking for. They have too Also part of the Super Femicom guide for chipping.
If you want to take a look through the full library, or mark it for the next time when needed, It is available hereAlthough you can only Search for a particular game in the Internet archive And it will come there too. And for a bit more action-packed, in addition to collecting their guides Peebs also works through the SNES library and tries to break every game on Twitch (In the final count he only had 47 to go!)
