Nintendo Brings You SNES Classic

Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic

If you were excited about last year’s NES Classic, Nintendo is now bringing you a smaller version of their SNES.

Nintendo have announced that they will be bringing back a version of their popular 90s console known as Super Nintendo or SNES.

The original 16-bit Super Nintendo was first introduced to world in 1990 in Japan, and by 1993 it had become available all over the world as one of the leading gaming consoles of its time. Overall, the console has sold 49 million units worldwide, and its most popular game, Super Mario World, sold more than 20 million copies.

Anyone who was young during the 90s and had a thing for video games will for sure get excited over the possibility to own one of these again, especially one that works easily on newer TVs.

Starting September 29, the SNES Classic will become available, with 21 builtin popular titles like Zelda: A Link To The Past, Super Mario World and Super Mario Kart.

In terms of looks, the console looks pretty much like the original one, but is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. It comes ready to plug-and-play, with a HDMI cable and two SNES controllers.

And for all of you who remember Star Fox, Nintendo will release the SNES Classic with Star Fox 2, the popular game’s sequel that was never released.

Last year Nintendo rolled out a miniature NES Classic Edition, a remake of the most popular gaming console of all times, and sold more than 2.8 million units within months. Sadly, not everyone who wanted a console got one since they ran out, but Nintendo promises to make more SNES Classics.
