According to a recent report by CNN, Nintendo is set to release a the "Super NES Classic Edition" a miniature version of the classic Super Nintendo console of the 1990s. The release comes on the heels of Nintendo's incredibly successful NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the classic Nintendo console which sold exceptionally well upon its release last year.
Like the NES Classic Edition, the Super NES Classic will feature some of the most popular games from the original Super Nintendo library, including Super Mario World and Yoshi's Island built-in to the system itself. Additionally, the miniature system will also feature a few new games, such as Star Fox 2.
Having the same classic appearance and playability of the original Super Nintendo, the Super NES Classic will come complete with two palm-sized controllers hard-wired into the small, portable system. This is just one advantage over the original Super Nintendo Console, which only came with one controller.
Additional advantages of the upcoming classic edition include the amount of readily available games and the price, which is currently set at $79.99 per unit. That's $120 cheaper than the original price of the Super Nintendo, which sold for $199 upon its initial release in 1990, though it's open for debate whether the SNES Classic's price is a fair deal when lightly-used original Super Nintendo consoles are currently selling for as low as $40 online.
When asked how many units could be expected for release when the Super NES Classic, Nintendo told CNN Tech that they are planning to release "significantly more" units than what the company released for the now-discontinued NES Classic Edition last year.
The Super Nintendo Classic Edition is just the latest console to receive the remastered, miniaturized treatment, as gaming company AtGames has recently announced miniature versions of the Atari and Sega Genesis consoles.
The Super NES Classic Edition will launch on September 29, 2017.
