Nintendo Reportedly Replacing The MiniNES With A Miniature Version Of The SNES

Nintendo Discontinues NES Classic Edition Globally [Update]

Nintendo may have discontinued the NES Mini to make room for a SNES Mini

According to the sources, development on the SNES Mini has already begun and it is the primary reason why the NES Mini was discontinued.

A SNES Classic Mini seems like an absolute no-brainer for Nintendo, considering how well the NES sold.

It's clear then that Nintendo is treating these releases as special ones, rather than adding both the NES Mini and SNES Mini to its long-term production plans. We can only hope that Nintendo learns from its shortcomings with the the NES Classic and can meet the demands of its newest venture.

Doors weren't closed on Nintendo bringing back any of its other retro systems back in mini versions, and it looks like the trend is going to continue with SNES next.

The SNES is the console that perfected numerous franchises that Nintendo's still known for today: Games like "Donkey Kong Country", "Super Mario World," and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" are just a few examples of the incredible catalog of games on the SNES.

If you didn't manage to get an NES Classic, the company left the door open for a potential return.

Following the explosive success of the NES Classic Edition over the 2016 holiday season, Eurogamer reports that Nintendo is working on a miniature Super Nintendo console to have ready to launch by Christmas this year.

TrustedReviews has rounded up all the latest news regarding the highly anticipated SNES Classic Mini. While the NES is the company's first home console, it was the SNES that featured more iconic titles such as The Legends of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Chrono Trigger, and more. Hopefully, the SNES mini will contain a great deal more. At the time, many people wondered why Nintendo would discontinue such a successful, in-demand product but it turns out, it may be due to a replacement coming. Although some of us were lucky enough to get our hands on one, many of us weren't, and it's an unfortunate situation.
