Nintendo’s recent announcement of the upcoming SNES Classic Edition now has fans waiting with excitement. The Super NES Classic Edition will include two wired controllers upon purchase. It will come to fans in North America and Europe by Sept. 29. More details regarding the system’s release were announced, including its price and games that will be made available.
SNES Classic Edition: Price and Where to Buy
As reports reveal, the Super NES Classic Edition will be priced at $79.99. But where can eager fans buy the SNES Classic Edition? There are options to sign up at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy in order to receive pre-order notifications. Alternatively, Amazon UK and Game UK offer pre-orders. However, stocks are quick to run out. Most likely, places like Toys R US and GameStop will offer preorders as well.
Nintendo previously released the NES Classic Edition back in November 2016. It featured more games at 30 titles with a cheaper price tag at $59.99. Some would note that although the Super NES Classic Edition has fewer games, it at least comes with an extra controller.
SNES Classic Edition Games
The Super NES Classic Edition will include 21 Super Nintendo games. These titles include the likes of Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy III, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Mega Man X, Secret of Mana, Star Fox, Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid, and Yoshi’s Island to name a few. Notably, Star Fox 2 will also be available for the gaming system. To access the game, players will need to beat the first level of Star Fox.
Besides Nintendo’s announcement, further details regarding the Super NES Classic Edition have yet to be disclosed. However, the fact that the system makes its return to the market is news worth celebrating. It just goes to show that even the oldest of gaming consoles are capable of making their comeback in the industry.
Nintendo Switch vs. Super NES Classic
Some would argue that the re-release of the Super NES Classic may be unnecessary. As some reports reveal, the Nintendo Switch is currently capable of playing much older titles. With the Switch’s portability, it seems like it already has the upper hand. However, some die-hard fans may still opt for the more retro feel of the Super NES Classic. After all, some games are still worth playing on their original consoles.
