Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System

Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System will launch in Europe on September 29, 2017.

The latest in Nintendo’s range of micro-consoles features 21 games, including the never-before released Star Fox 2, and Yoshi’s Island, the SNES version of which has yet to be released on Virtual Console.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System has the same design as the original European and Japanese SNES and Super Famicom systems, only tiny. It also comes bundled with two wired SNES controllers, hopefully with slightly longer cables this time, and a USB power cable.

In North America, the console is named the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Classic Edition, and the design will reflect that region’s (not quite as scrumptious) form factor.
