Nintendo announces SNES Classic console for September

As was previously rumored, Nintendo has officially announced the Super Nintendo Classic Edition.

Other games included are Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, F-Zero, Super Metroid, Mega Man X, Yoshi's Island and more. But for only $80, this will most likely be an eBay scalpers dream. But then again, Nintendo didn't seem to care much about money when they made a decision to terminate the production of the NES Classic Edition. Nintendo's website lists the retail price at $79.99.

"It's important to recognize where our future is and the key areas that we need to drive", Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé in late April.

"We had originally planned for this to be a product for last holiday", he said. "After stealing the show at E3 with the release slate for the Switch, the news of the SNES Classic is another high note". Hopefully this time Nintendo will be making enough to keep up with demand, instead of what happened with the NES Classic. However, the real excitement comes in the games that the console provides. This time, they say, they're no longer pulling punches. Thanks to all the hype surrounding its innovative mobile form factor despite having few launch titles forcing players to make due with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Unfortunately, there is no word on whether or not production will continue or cease at the end of the year. If you believe some people in the know, parts issues will continue to extend production delays for the console.

The SNES mini doesn't have a confirmed United Kingdom price yet but will cost $79 in America when it's released on September 29. Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata was forced to answer questions on the topic, and he said something that might sound familiar.

Or, perhaps Nintendo has gone for a very flimsy controller port that'll allow for controllers to pop out awkwardly during play.

Gamers: "Ugh, Nintendo will never pull a fast one on me again".

Thankfully, Nintendo has moved to assuage those concerns by claiming there'll be "significantly more" SNES consoles available than there were for the 8-bit system. That means no Super Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time or Chrono Trigger.
