SNES Classic Mini Announced - Coming Sept 29th 2017

by Reprise Mon Jun 26, 2017 12:39 pm

Well the rumours we were all hoping were true are now a reality!

After several rumours, Nintendo has confirmed that a SNES version of its Nintendo Classic Mini console will be arriving this autumn on September 29th.

Officially titled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the miniature 16-bit system will come with 21 pre-installed games in total, including the never-before-released Star Fox 2.

As with its now sold-out NES predecessor, the Classic Mini: SNES can be plugged into any HDMI slot on your TV (an HDMI cable is included in the box, along with a USB cable but NOT an AC power plug). It also comes with two SNES controllers - an improvement over the Classic Mini: NES' single controller offering.

There's no word yet on how much the console will cost, or when pre-orders will open, but in the meantime, here's a list of all the included 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.

I already own at least half the games, but I'm still excited as hell :D

It's a little disappointing that there's only 21 games this time, but I understand it with all the licenses etc. Plus they probably don't want to devalue their retro library too much (and there's also two controllers included in the box this time :D)

I do too but the ones I don't own cost twice as much as the system itself.

I'm not surprised with the number, I figured they'd go lower than the NES classic. What is here does a great job of representing the system. It'd be hard to make a more perfect list that's this well-rounded.

The weakest link here is probably Super GnG and I can't really blame them that much for having it.

It's worth it for an official release of Starfox 2 alone. Let's hope they make more than seven of them this time.

I very much like Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts now, so even that's a good inclusion. Just the presence of Star Fox 2 has me tempted. I do actually own every other game in that list, though...

Indeed, very true on the cost of buying a lot of those games. And having Starfox 2 is an awesome and very surprising inclusion.

I'll be pre-ordering one as soon as they go up. I did the same with the NES Classic and clearly made the right call there after they released about 10 of them worldwide.

Edit: Actually looking again, I own pretty much 3/4s of those games already. Still worth it though :D

I know i said to myself i would buy this ASAP but... seeing that list of games only makes me think "Man i still need to buy those games for my collection", also knowing how nintendo controls their suply i know this will be hard to get.

I'm going to pre-order and hope for the best. If I get one I get one, if I don't then whatever.

Yeah I wasn't knocking the game too hard. The fact that it's the weakest says something about the overall selection.
