The new “retro” console will ship with games including EarthBound, Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
In addition, Star Fox 2 will be part of the games list, something that’s really amazing. Star Fox 2 was cancelled before it was actually released. This will be the first chance for players to get hands on it as an “official” release, though it’s be out on ROM for a long while. However, players shouldn’t go looking for it immediately either.

OK but will Nintendo make enough of ’em?
Last year, Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition. However, the units quickly sold out worldwide. Many gamers were unhappy after the company did not make enough units to meet demand. Lastly, Nintendo stopped producing the NES Classic Edition earlier this year for reasons unknown.
As a result of today’s announcement, The Nintendo Facebook page has over four thousand comments about the news. Many writers are concerned about whether or not the company will produce enough units to meet demand as well as the long-term production goals.
