    Another year, more releases!

    Previous threads didn't get updated too well, and the 2015 thread was pretty abysmal. I'm going to attempt keeping more up to date, and of course everything depends on forum members here sharing news about new releases since I'm sure to miss a lot of things. Also be sure to let us know if any links have become invalid.

    SS we had 2 so far, this being number 2.
    Either way I'm sure having 2 won't be that bad. I know what thread I'll be maintaining and I'll be watching both threads until someone of interest shows up.

    Didn't notice the other thread. Sorry about that!

    I'll leave this open unless a mod decides otherwise. But I intend to continually update the main post with a list of all releases, whereas other threads of this sort have left it to readers to scramble through the whole thread finding individual releases. Plus I feel like this subforum makes a bit more sense than the downloads area.

    I had a couple of prototype releases on SNES Central late last year. I don't know where the other threads are to see if they were pointed out.

    As sad as a "No" is for that, it's a no. It's still something great regardless~!

    Here's a small one to kick things off! A near-final version of Banana for Famicom, further along and thus less interesting than the one that's already out there.
    Banana (6-30 Prototype)

    And I started a new site, still a work-in-progress (i.e. doesn't behave well on narrow mobile browsers yet) with a short writeup on it. Photos of the cart, and screenshots with viewing options for easy comparison.

    This one probably has the best chance of being updated. I hope this becomes the official thread.
