Nintendo’s SNES Classic Confirmed, Releases September 29

When the NES Classic hit store shelves late past year, Nintendo fans showed up at in throngs to purchase the nostalgic system.The SNES Classic will have 21 games installed on it when it launches, nine less than the NES Classic, which had 30 games on it to start with.The arrival of the Super NES Classic Edition will allow players to get their hands on some of the best two-player games of the era.Nintendo called this the return of the 90’s and the 16-bit golden age.The new SNES will cost $79.99 (£62.90) and have the same look and feel of the classic 90s console, but will be smaller than the original. However, the real excitement comes in the games that the console provides. While there are 21 fantastic games on the console, perhaps one stood out above the rest: Star Fox 2. The Classic Mini line, then, is a smart strategy, assuming Nintendo can make enough of them to avoid angering fans. Among these include Donkey Kong Country, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Earthbound, and Star Fox.Included with the Super NES Classic Edition are one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers. Had the device not been discontinued, it’s likely gamers would have continued purchasing the NES Classic at great pace despite the cord length, though longer third-party cords would have inevitably been created.”The SNES is shorthand for Super Nintendo, which was Nintendo’s console in the early 90s”, senior editor Peter Brown told CBS.Users were complaining about how the NES Classic Edition’s controller cable were too short for playing at a comfortable distance, so for the SNES Classic Edition, Nintendo has also made it slightly longer. Unfortunately, there is no word on whether or not production will continue or cease at the end of the year.
