What are the rarest SNES games?

Post by retrojc » Wed Sep 29, 2010 1:36 pm

Hey guys, this willprobably form an article somewhere along the line, but more for my own curiosity, what would you consider the rarest SNES games?

They only one I can think of and want, is R type 3...

Don't really know much about pal release snes and that is probably what you are after.............

SFC stuff, there are a few rare titles I am after incl, Fire Emblem Trakia 776 DELUXE Pack and Slam Dunk Shueisha Limited Edition

Rendering Ranger R2 and Final Fight Tough are quite rare but I'm lucky enough to have them.


I'd also be interested in rare pal snes stuff...........just in case I ever come accross them cheap :D

I suppose two obvious answers are Final Fight 2 and Final Fight 3.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Straight releases and not satellaview or comp cart.........then there aren't really many worth over 300 quid

at a push I'd say
Sutte Hakkun
Rendering Ranger R2
Fire Emblem Thracia Ltd
Slam Dunk Shueisha Limited Edition

a fair few are worth 100-200 notes, but there isn't really many expensive rare sfc stuff.

The PAL version of X3 is really rare and usually goes for quite a bit when complete versions pop up and to a lesser extent so are MMX2 and Megaman 7.

I think the PAL version of Castlevania Vampires Kiss is pretty tough to get as well.

There ya go. Any questions, ask Shadowman. Vortex goes for quite a bit, in boxed and mint condition. So does The Firemen (I think).

Damn - thought you were referring to the original Mega Man X :D
I acquired a mint, boxed copy of this 7 or 8 years ago, (probably paid a tenner or so) but didn't think it was rare or collectible :lol:
Noticed that on Ebay there are carts only going for £25- to £30- :shock:
What does a boxed, mint copy go for?

Got R-Type 3 as well...although complete it's a little tatty.

Think you must be thinking of a different game. Boxed Vortex's come up all the time on Ebay, usually for £5-10. There's 3 complete copies on at the moment none going for much. ;)

In terms of UK Pal releases, Mega Man X3, Final Fight Guy, Castlevania Vampire's Kiss seem to continually big bucks. I've seen a Vampire's Kiss cart only go for over £100 before a couple of times. However, there is a difference between rare games and valuable ones. Games like Power Pigs and Izzy's Quest for the Olympic Rings are pretty rare but never attract big money whereas common games like Secret of Mana sell for loads because they are in demand.
