SNES Classic Edition Reportedly Coming Out Later in 2017

SNES Classic

Several sites are reporting that Nintendo will release an SNES Classic Edition in 2017. This is amazing news for those of us who couldn’t get hold of a “Mini” and who have been crying because it’s no longer being sold.

SNES Classic Edition info leak

Eurogamer spoke to inside sources who confirmed the new console as well as the 2017 release date. In addition, the source said that the unit is already in development to prepare for launch. Nintendo, of course, declined to confirm or deny the news.

Fans who never were able to get hold of NES Mini are undoubtedly pleased. The tiny console, packed with thirty titles, was originally released in October 2016. It remained in a sold out state throughout its removal from production last week. According to Nintendo, it was never meant to be a permanent addition to Nintendo’s line up of consoles but more of a “novelty” item.

We do not have any information about what games might be part of a Super Nintendo system. But the thought of what could  be there is intoxicating.

  • Super Punch-Out
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • The Secret of Mana
  • Mega Man X
  • Super Mario All-Stars
  • Super Mario RPG
  • Street Fighter II Turbo
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Super Metroid
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Chrono Trigger

That ought to start your head spinning!

  1. I don’t like how the NES mini was handled and I’m sure the SNES mini will be the same. Between distribution and lies that they would send out more, it frustrated me.

    The SNES has a way better catalog of games, so many greats in there, I have no idea how they could pick a few chosen ones. I think it will depend what they release on it, if it contains hard to get games or games not available via their digital classics then it may be worth it. Though If I really wanted too play my classics again I’d get one of those retro third party consoles.
