Nintendo announces the Mini SNES for $80

At the beginning of the year, Nintendo announced that they will bring back the NES console and sell it for a limited time. This was a chance for people that had experienced the old NES console back in the 90’s to get that experience once again. The console is called the Mini SNES and based on the name will obviously be smaller than the original console. The Super NES Classic Edition system has the original look and feel of the ’90s home console. Plus, this one comes fully loaded with 20 games including 1 which we have never seen before!

Priced at $80 it’s not a bad deal. The fact that they threw in games which are way better than the one’s that were offered on the NES Classic which makes it worth the price. They gave a completed version of Star Fox 2 and Earthbound which can go for almost $300 if you want a new cartridge. The box will be packed with two old wired retro Super NES™ Classic Controllers that are included for multiplayer gaming. Keep in mind that the Super NES Classic Edition is compatible with the Classic Controller™ and Classic Controller Pro™ accessories.

Here is the lineup of all of the games that will be coming to the console:

Currently, people cannot reserve or pre-order one as they have been closed. This is because Nintendo is already overloaded and is out of stock.  They will be updating their website again in a couple of days once pre-orders have reopened along with other retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy.

You will be able to play all of those games (except complete Star Fox 2) and more through ROMs, but the experience is usually buggy and its illegal. The system is set to release on Sept. 29, 2017 and will available to more and more retailers. Currently, only Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart have access to the pre-orders.

We hope to get more information about the console and hopefully get a sneak peak of the interface of the console. My guess is that it will have that old 90′ boot up screen and then immediately start running your game.
