SNES Classic

Post by Gameguy1996 on Mon Jun 26, 2017 1:53 pm

The long rumored SNES Classic has finally been announced. The classic system will be released on September 29th with 21 games that include Super Mario World, Secret of Mana and the first official release of Stat Fox 2.

Mini 16-Bit System Launches Sept. 29 with 21 Games; Includes Unreleased Star Fox 2

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, launched in 1991 and introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time – classics such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid and F-ZERO.

On Sept. 29, this beloved console is coming back to stores in the form of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition. The mini system, which contains 21 pre-installed classic games and can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable, will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. And for the first time, players who pick up the system can enjoy the intergalactic adventure Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox game that was created during the Super NES era but never released … anywhere!

“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition has the same look and feel of the original system – only smaller – and comes pre-loaded with 21 incredible games:

Contra III: The Alien Wars™
Donkey Kong Country™
Final Fantasy III
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™
All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them in particular – Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans who have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 game will offer them something entirely new to enjoy – if they can unlock it by proving their skills in the original Star Fox game. (Well, they only have to complete the first level – we didn’t want to make it too hard!)

Included with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition are one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers, perfect for playing multiplayer games. Having two controllers will make it easy for two players to dive into multiplayer action right away. Some of the games with multiplayer options include Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III: The Alien Wars and Secret of Mana.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition launches on Sept. 29 at a suggested retail price of $79.99.

I'm already expecting it to be a limited item due to how Nintendo likes there limited items. I also can't believe Star Fox 2 is finally getting released after so many years.

Star Fox 2 though. Surprised

This is so crazy! I was not actually expecting this to happen so it's definitely an exciting announcement for those who have been interested for awhile. It definitely makes it clear why the NES Classic was discontinued after such a short period of time, and the fact that they plan to discontinue this before 2018 makes me wonder if we could be seeing the N64 Classic Edition not too far in the future as well.

As much as I do want this, if it's as limited as the NES classic was, which it probably will end up being, then I'll probably skip it. Really hope it's not though, because I do want it more than the NES one.

It has been announced earlier than I expected. Star Fox 2 finally getting released is a big shocker certainly, also nice to hear one of the developers for it is thrilled about it. I'm interested in it, the games and a bit of a collector's item at the same time. I've always been fond of the American SNES's design and colors. I'm not too crazy about the Super Famicom's, thought the Japanese one does have Fire Emblem and Panel de Pon.

Is anyone planning on importing one if they're interested in the SNES Classic?

Almost guaranteed they will. I doubt the stock will be good enough again.

Not entirely surprised by this but the SF2 full version is definitely a deal maker (also the death of Super FX 2 chip memes)
