Do you often fret that these games can only be played by two people at most, especially if you have lots of friends to play with?
To support more than 2 players on the original SNES, which apparently only has two controller jacks, a peripheral named "Multitap" is required. That's another advantage of the modern emulation consoles, which usally has more than 2 USB ports (The Sonicon SNES Ultimate has 4 and supports up to 5 players)
Today we want to share with you some Multi-Player Games on SNES. Call your friends to play!
