Nintendo May Release an SNES Classic Edition This Year

Nintendo May Release an SNES Classic Edition This Year

Market it as the Ultimate Nintendo History Arcade or something, and put all your classic systems in one place.

"The SNES mini (or, to continue Nintendo's official branding, likely the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System) is now scheduled to launch in time for Christmas this year".

Eurogamer claims sources close to the company have leaked information that the SNES mini is now currently in development and has a 2017 release date.

Consumers are often found empty-handed when trying to look for Nintendo NES Classic Edition from brick and mortar stores this is because of the announcement made by Nintendo last Thursday regarding its discontinuation. While the supply shortage is still controllable in the United Kingdom, the situation in the United States speaks otherwise; thus, NES Classic Edition discontinued to focus on the production of Switch. Hence, it may all be an upgrade in a sense, much of which was covered in a separate post.

It appears that the SNES Classic or SNES mini as Eurogamer is calling it, is why you can't find a NES Classic at all.

This is despite the fact that the recent price of NES Classic Edition is nearly six times the suggested retail price of $60 (almost at a part with today's new gen consoles).

Personally, there's a lot more things I'd like to play on the SNES rather than the NES, so when it does come out I'm hoping to get a lot more mileage out of it than I did the NES, where I ended up just playing Kirby and nothing much else.

Some of these old favourite game titles could return plus more for the SNES Classic Edition. For the SNES Mini, though, we'd love to be able to plug in our still-working AsciiPad or hook up the ridiculously large Super Advantage joystick to a new, HDMI-equipped system.

Eariler this week, news came out that Nintendo was discontinuing Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, better known as NES Mini.
