Nintendo goes classic with mini Super Nintendo console

However the good news must be accompanied by some bad news, and Nintendo has mentioned that the SNES Classic will be available for a limited time only.

Each console will also come with two wired retro controllers that are two feet longer than the NES Classic controllers. "Nintendo has told that they're planning to produce significantly more units than they did with the NES Classic but we don't really know what that means".

The SNES Classic Edition will feature 21 games from the legendary console including Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound, and Street Fighter II Turbo, among others. But for many fans who wanted to buy one of the smaller microconsoles for themselves, to relive the classic 8-bit Nintendo games, it was an unmitigated disaster- the console was chronically undershipped, and mostly no one got their hands on it. I owned at least half of these games, and played them daily. Nintendo is promising that the SNES Mini stock when it launches on September 27 will be better than the NES Mini availability was.

"Our long-term efforts are focused on delivering great games for the Nintendo Switch system and continuing to build momentum for that platform, as well as serving the more than 63m owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems".

Even for super fans who have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 game will offer them something entirely new to enjoy - if they can unlock it by proving their skills in the original Star Fox game. So, do you guys plan on trying to get the SNES Classic or will you just let this one go? Nintendo's SNES Classic console will be available in the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia.

Sega, whose Megadrive console competed fiercely with the SNES in the Nineties, recently said it would re-release a huge library of games as part of a Netflix-style scheme.

However this is something that Nintendo plans on addressing with the recently announced SNES Classic Edition.
