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.
