Did you get your hands on the NES Classic Edition? If you didn’t get to buy it for the original price of $59.99, you can buy it off of third party sellers for over $200. Yikes! Well, here’s your chance to redeem yourself. Nintendo has announced that they will be releasing the Super Nintendo Classic game console on September 29, 2017 for $79.99. There are some great surprises in this release so let’s take a look.
The game console will have the same look and feel of the original SNES just smaller. Awww, how adorable! Unlike the NES Classic which came with 30 pre-installed games, the SNES Classic will come with only 21 games. I say it’s not a big deal as long as it has your favorites on it, am I right?!
Do a double take on the section title, go ahead, I’ll wait. Did you catch it? It’s called “controllers” as in more than one. The NES Classic was released with only one controller. The SNES…two controllers! Hallelujah! Now you’ll be able to do some multiplayer gaming right out of the box. You’ll be able to beat your siblings and buddies at Super Mario Kart and Street Fighter II Turbo all over again. Oh, and in case you were wondering for some odd reason, the controllers are not miniature. They are regular size controllers that actually plug into the console. Did you really think they were going to be small?
Included Super NES Games
OMG, OMG, OMG…They have what seems to be the most popular games! PLUS, and this is a big plus, they are releasing the never-before-released Star Fox 2! Whaaaaat! I’ve already squealed over every game on this console so here’s the list so you squeal over them yourself. By the way, my all-time favorites are Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Street Fighter II Turbo, and Super Punch Out. I know, I know. You’re like, “Don’t you like Zelda? Castevania?

Where to Buy
Nintendo has announced it will be released on September 29th, 2017. As of this post Nintendo has not announced which retail stores will carry this console but I’m going to guess that it will be the same retailers as for the NES Classic. Below is a list of those stores. The ones with links already have a dedicated page to the SNES Classic where you can sign up to be notified when it is available for sale.
Although I remember enjoying the NES, I think I had much more fun playing on the Super Nintendo. I am so looking forward to this release. I am definitely going to try and get this console when it comes out. I hope you enjoyed this pre-release review of the Super Nintendo Classic.
