You may think this is a post from 1995. This is 2012 and yes there is group of die hard programmers who are developing a new game for a system that was discontinued before Y2K. The company is Super Fighter Team and they are planning on making 600 copies of a side scrolling adventure game called Nightmare Busters. Nightmare Busters is due out in 2013 and you can preorder it now for $60.
What do you think about developing new games for older systems? Its probably a waste of time because with over 700 titles for the SNES it will be hard to create anything original or better than the games already made.
