After months of hype and speculation, Nintendo have finally confirmed their intention to bring back the classic Super Nintendo console. 

The videogame developer will be releasing a new version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, aka the SNES, in a new miniature device out this autumn.

Dubbed the Super Nintendo Classic, the console will come with 21 classic SNES games pre-loaded onto the device, and will available for the relatively low price of $80 (UK price to be confirmed.)

The release follows Nintendo’s decision last year to release the original Nintendo Entertainment System – the NES – in a new miniature form. 

The NES Classic came with 30 games and sold out almost immediately during its winter 2016 release. 

The SNES Classic is expected to chart a similar sales trajectory, if only because the SNES is regarded as one of the greatest games consoles of all time: home to many of the 90s greatest games including Super Mario 3, Star Fox and Street Fighter II

The SNES Classic is currently penciled in for a September 29 US release and will feature 21 games on the device, including the previously never released Star Fox 2

As reported in Kotaku, the SNES Classic will carry the following games:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man® X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!! ™
  • Yoshi’s Island

We humbly advise you pre-order it soon. This will sell out pretty quickly.
