Nintendo unveils the Mini SNES Classic
Remember the SNES? Remember inviting all your friends round for an intense session of Street Fighter II? Remember knowing all the secrets nooks and crannies of Donkey Kong Country better than the geography of your actual hometown? We sure do. Which is why the news that Nintendo are re-releasing their classic Super Nintendo Entertainment System in a manageable, miniature size has got us more than a little excited.
Based upon the classic system which first launched in 1990 and revolutionised the way we play videogames today, this retro re-release comes with two controllers, 21 games (including classics like Earthbound, Super Metroid, and even the previously unreleased Star Fox 2), and will retail at an affordable AED 295. Which all sounds a bit too good to be true. Which it unfortunately seems like it is.
Taking the successful, but incredibly limited, release of last year’s NES Classic edition into consideration, rumours strongly indicate that the SNES Classic will be experiencing a similarly brief run. As a result, these highly sought-after consoles are going to be incredibly difficult to find and even more so at the actual retail price.
Available from September 29, 2017, you’re simply going to need the luck, skill, and speed of Star Fox himself in order to actually get your hands on one of these bad boys.
