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.
Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System games:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
- Donkey Kong Country
- Final Fantasy III
- 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
Expect the usual discussions about stocks, supplies and pre-orders to start right now. One thing this announcement does seem to indicate is that we won’t be hearing anything about the Nintendo Switch Virtual Console for a while yet.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System will be released on 29th September, 2017.
