12 Great SNES Beat ‘Em Up Games That (Almost) Everyone Forgot
The beat ’em up genre, as a whole, has been swept under the rug in favor of other genres that fit the modern style of gaming. But back in the 80s and 90s, beat ’em ups were all the rage.

While it is true that it has experienced a small comeback with Rare’s Battletoads revamp, the successful Streets of Rage 4 or the pixel art masterpiece called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder’s Revenge, it is a far cry from the golden age of the 16-bit. The consoles of the early 90s seemed to have an endless supply of such fun games. The SNES is particularly well represented in terms of great beat em ups, which makes for optimal choices when looking to “kick it” with a friend or sibling.

But the purpose of this video is not to cover the best beat em ups that appeared on the Super Nintendo, as you already know them all, but to honor those brawlers that even having an extraordinary quality went unnoticed by the big audiences.

In this video we choose true hidden gems of the genre, little known either by remaining as Japanese exclusives (Super Famicom), or simply overlapped by other better known titles such as Turtles in Time, Final Fight or Batman Returns.

⚠️ All gameplay recording, game curation and opinions included in this video, as well as editing is completely done by me

Bits & Beats creates videos about the history of video games. In this channel you’ll find comparisons, retrospectives, technical analysis, but, mostly, game curations with the idea of having an important task of preserving video games, and make them relevant to society at large.

Curation isn’t just about digging up neat games, but it’s also about preservation, interpretation, and using one’s knowledge to make it relevant to people. With my videos I want older gamers to look back and remember the influence of video games on their lives, and new gamers to understand the larger context of the series they’re playing for the first time today.

I put significant time and creative effort into each one of my videos, including research, digging into archives, playing video games and recording hours of footage, selecting specific clips, writing reviews for each title, and making a very careful video editing in the way to transmit both educational and entertaining values to my audience. Every video takes a lot of hours to produce, because I strive to give my audience a consistent, high-quality content.

Fidelity and preservation of the video games is essential in Bits & Beats, so the recordings are made with the highest bitrate quality. It is done this way to preserve original game look and sound through modern footage, with no superfluous additions. I recommend you watch the video at 4K and 60 frames per second to get the best possible viewing experience.

I hope you enjoy my videos and find them useful!
