Mini Super Nintendo? SNES Classic may launch this year

Mini Super Nintendo? SNES Classic may launch this year

Nintendo is reportedly coming out with another classic console for the 2017 holiday season, but his time around, it's a miniaturized version of the Super Nintendo. Though, if the report is true, you'll have to wait until the holidays. According to Eurogamer's sources, the new mini console is scheduled to be available before the Christmas rush.

Nintendo has since said that it never intended for the NES Mini to become a permanent product, nor did they expect it to become such a highly sought after item, especially after the Christmas rush.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System debuted in 1990 (Japan, South Korea), 1991 (North America), 1992 (Europe, Oceania) and 1993 (South America).

Per the report, it is believed that Nintendo will stay true to the "plug and play" setup that worked so well with the NES Classic before it, meaning a pre-loaded selection of classic games. Exactly how many games and which titles Nintendo might offer, however, remains to be seen.

The NES Classic Edition, which has a normal retail price of $60, is presently found on Amazon for $171.95.

For now, Nintendo is staying quiet on whether the SNES Classic Edition exists or not. We will have to wait a little longer for a confirmation!

After the unbridled success of its Nintendo Classic Edition, Nintendo may unveil a follow up to it, this time focused around Super Nintendo. We can nearly forgive Nintendo for underestimating the demand of the NES Classic Edition, but there is no excuse for a repeat disappointment (for gamers) this time around.

Nintendo hasn't commented on the rumours themselves, but many fans will live in hope of another wave of console nostalgia later this year. Popular Super Nintendo Entertainment System games include "Super Mario Kart", "Super Smash Bros.", "Super Mario World", "Super Metroid", "Donkey Kong Country" and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past".
