Super Nintendo Classic Edition available September 29, 2017

Posted June 30, 2017

Nintendo has announced the release of a throwback console that will have fans on the edge of their seats.

One of the problems with the NES Classic Edition wasn't so much the features, the games, or its functionality. Nintendo stated, "We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition".

While the NES Classic didn't experience any sales struggles due to the controller cord length, it was still an area many gamers were unhappy with. The difference is that the SNES controllers will be a little longer: two extra feet, to be exact.

Japanese game maker behind the franchise has announced it will soon release a miniature version of its SNES classic home console, with preloaded fan favourites Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country and Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. If that's still too short for you, Nintendo has confirmed that the SNES Classic will also support the Classic Controller/Classic Controller Pro from the Wii.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System, to give it its full name, follows the same wildly successful template as the Nintendo Classic Mini NES. That console was also preloaded with games that could be played in HD, and turned out to be a pretty nifty little box. As an added bonus, the never-before-released sequel to the original Star Fox Super NES game - Star Fox 2 - will come with the system. Likewise numerous included titles, such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Final Fantasy III (VI), and Super Metroid are considered some of the greatest games of all time.

At launch there will be two different versions of the console. It follows the NES Classic that went on sale late previous year but was discontinued in April citing limited resources.

On September 29, Nintendo is bringing back the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition.

Nintendo is planning to utilize gamer's nostalgia once again to rake in cash with the official announcement of yet another retro console replica, the "Super #Nes Classic Edition".

In other words, you better act quick if you want this thing!
