Mini Super Nintendo To Launch By Christmas

Following the wild popularity of the NES Classic Mini (although bizarrely, Nintendo has recently made a decision to discontinue it), many people have eagerly anticipated news from the company of a miniature version of the 16-bit great, the SNES. This so-called "SNES Mini" will be ready to launch in time for the Christmas shopping season according to "sources close to the company".

Nintendo NES Classic Mini remained one of the most favorite and well-received video game consoles for years.

Best-sellers from the SNES era, and therefore potential candidates for a SNES Classic, include "Super Mario World", "Donkey Kong Country", "Super Mario Kart", "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past", "Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island", "F-Zero" and "Pilotwings". The mini SNES is expected to come with better software and a bigger range of classic games than the NES Classic.

The SNES Mini will be the follow-up to the widely sought after NES Classic, which was released on November 11, 2016.

Last week, Nintendo began discontinuing the NES Mini console, which once again, caused scalper prices on eBay to soar to great heights. It worked great, looked cool and was the ideal Christmas stocking filler, it's a mystery why we won't see any more of these consoles.

We can only hope Nintendo follows through this time and can keep the console in stock at retailers.

If you weren't able to purchase the NES Classic Edition prior to its discontinuation, we feel your pain.

What do you think about the SNES Mini?

Then, Nintendo suddenly canceled the NES Classic Edition last week. During the interview, Nintendo stated that the Mini NES was never meant to be a permanent product, which doesn't come to a surprise with Nintendo's marketing strategy to drive sales.

For now, Nintendo Inc. does not say if they are bringing back the classic gaming console in the future because they are focusing on Nintendo Switch.

What games would you want to see on a SNES Mini?

Luckily, those who didn't score a mini NES haven't lost all luck.
