Nintendo Unveils SNES Classic – Coming Out in September, Includes Unreleased Star Fox 2

UPDATE: The listing is now live on Amazon, pre-orders should open soon.

Nintendo has just unveiled the SNES Classic Edition- the follow up to the NES Classic, the SNES Classic is a diminutive version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System with 21 games built-in, including The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the PastStar Fox and Super Metroid. Just like the NES Classic, the SNES Classic will be compatible with modern televisions, plugging in via HDMI- it ships with a pair of SNES controllers, for multiplayer goodness right out of the box.

The SNES Classic is smaller than the original SNES, but works with modern TVs.

Here’s the full list of games coming to the SNES Classic:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III [Technically Final Fantasy VI, which was released as III in the west.]
  • 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

The SNES Classic is coming out on September 29, 2017 for $79.99. Will you be purchasing one? The NES Classic seemed to have been the victim of FARTS, or Forced ARTificial Scarcity as Nintendo produced too few of them to fulfill the massive demand for them. If you look around online, there aren’t that many of them available for sale, and those that are available to purchase are pretty expensive right now. Will the same thing happen to the SNES Classic? Don’t be surprised if it does. Nintendo will most likely produce more SNES Classic units than they did for the NES Classic, but expect to see its pre-orders sold out as soon as those open up.
