The long-awaited 'Super NES Classic' is finally unveiled

Share

Nintendo will be releasing a Super Famicom version of the Classic Edition for the Japanese market for ¥7,980 (~S$99).

The new edition, Super NES Classic Edition, which fits in the palm of the hand, will be available in Europe and the United States on September 29.

Officially titled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the miniature 16-bit system will come with 21 pre-installed games in total, including the never-before-released Star Fox 2.

We heard murmurings of a mini SNES console earlier this year, following the success of the mini NES. The new classic console replica, also called the "Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System" in Europe, has always been rumored to be coming.

But right when you think this might be another "cheer for the bad guys" movie, we learn the truth: Baby is working under duress. Years of spoofing action tropes have imbued Wright with the skill to pull off some badass stunts without the ironic wink.

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.

We're also not sure what the mysterious hole is for to the left of the fake controller port on the North American version. It said in a statement: "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 Foxgame". Nintendo players just need to plug it in and play the games, Nintendo reports.

Much like how they've said that the discontinuation of the NES Classic Edition was due to their lack of "unlimited resources", Nintendo is once again singing the same tune. SNES Classic is probably not going to be on sale for long. Apart from the games already mentioned, the console will include "Contra III: "The Alien Wars", "Donkey Kong Country", "EarthBound", "Final Fantasy III", "F-ZERO", Kirby Super Star", and "Kirby's Dream Course".
