Nintendo Reveals Super NES Classic

When the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Classic came out last year, gamers were ecstatic. Demand for this tiny piece of gaming nostalgia was high, but the slow production kept Nintendo from appeasing all of its fans. The original NES Classic was much more popular with a particular demographic than Nintendo had originally planned for. This eventually lead to Nintendo soon running out of the small game system rather quickly, resulting in the shortage in production. Now that Nintendo has discontinued the product, many people are left feeling sore about missing out on the opportunity. Fortunately, Nintendo released news today that on September 29, they will be releasing another miniature gaming system and the follow-up to the original NES, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Titled the Super NES Classic Edition, this gaming system comes with two controllers, 21 classic video games, and only costs $80. Nintendo also released information about all the titles that would be available on the system. These games include:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-Zero
  • 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

For those parents looking to get their kids something nice for Christmas or a birthday, this may make a nice surprise. As for those fans of classic gamign who missed out on their chance to buy an NES Classic, this may be the opportunity they have been waiting for. At $80, this price seems to be a steal, and it beats attempting to buy one off of other retail sites – NES Classic consoles are regularly retail for $200 and up on eBay. With its release only being a few months away and the memories of the limited supply of the NES Classic still fresh in gaming fans’ minds, it is likely that buyers will pounce of this device as soon as it goes on sale.
