SNES Classic is real: Star Fox 2 playable for first time


Hopefully, this means the SNES Classic Edition makes its way to more Nintendo fans rather than opportunistic eBay scalpers this time around.

A Nintendo spokesperson reportedly said that the company will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than it did of NES Classic Edition.

Nintendo didn't give exact numbers for the units it expects to ship when the SNES Classic Edition launches on September 29 for $79 (about £62, AU$104), but we imagine the promise of more systems will appease retro gamers who might've been burned by the woefully under-supplied and over-demanded NES Classic Edition.

Nintendo package contains the following productsIncluded with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition are one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers, ideal for playing multiplayer games. In this new console, Yoshi, Samus, and the Star Fox crew are waiting for players to come and play the SNES.

Japanese game maker Nintendo announced its plans to launch Super NES Classic Edition, the standalone mini console, which will feature 21 pre-installed classic games. The console has of course been updated for modern television sets as it now sports an HDMI port instead of the RCA and coaxial ports found on the original.

We're also not sure what the mysterious hole is for to the left of the fake controller port on the North American version.

Still, it's nice to see Nintendo acknowledge the shortcomings of its last plug-and-play device.

Super Famicom" is preloaded with 21 titles including the immensely popular "Super Mario World" and "The Legend of Zelda: "A Link to the Past" as well as the previously unreleased "Star Fox 2". While Europe and the USA get a box that is similar in design of the NES Classic, the Super Famicom Classic comes in a more graphic artistic box. Some of the games with multiplayer options include Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III: The Alien Wars and Secret of Mana.
