The NES Classic Edition (a miniature console that came with a bunch of pre-loaded classic games) was popular to the point that people were paying much more than the $59.99 launch price. Nintendo sold more than 2 million of those units and now the Japanese company has announced that a follow-up, called the SNES Classic Edition, is coming later this year. The 16-bit miniature console is coming in September 29th, 2017 and the small box will include 21 games, an HDMI cable, a USB charging cable, an AC adapter and two controllers for $79.99.
The SNES Classic Edition features the following titles:
- Super Mario World
- Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Super Metroid
- Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
- Super PUNCH-OUT!!
- Super Castlevania IV
- Donkey Kong Country
- Mega Man X
- Kirby Super Star
- Kirby’s Dream Course
- Final Fantasy III (known as Final Fantasy VI in Japan)
- StarFox 2
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
- Secret of Mana
- Super Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts
Although the lineup features a lot of classic games you’d expect Nintendo to include, there are also some surprises, such as the previously unreleased StarFox 2 (a game that was cancelled before its release,) the extremely rare Earthbound and Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting.
