The SNES Classic arrives on September 29th

Additionally, Nintendo has stated that they intend to produce far more SNES Classic Editions than they did NES Classic Editions.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System, to give it its full name, follows the same wildly successful template as the Nintendo Classic Mini NES.

The 21 games on the Super Famicom mini are slightly different than for the United States version. However, in a statement to Kotaku, Nintendo assured that there would be more supply this time around. The SNES Mini can easily fit into the palm of your hand, making it very portable for all your gaming needs. Here are the details.

The SNES Classic will retail for $79.99 and launches on September 29th.

"It's important to recognize where our future is and the key areas that we need to drive", Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé in late April.

The Super Nintendo Classic Edition comes with 21 inbuilt SNES games. These games include a variety of classics such as Earthbound, Super Metroid, Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, Super Mario RPG, Secret of Mana, and Final Fantasy III.

Intriguingly, Nintendo is also throwing in Star Fox 2, which was never released commercially on the Super Nintendo. And they made it a true bonus game: The only way to unlock the new game is through playing (and hopefully beating) the original StarFox game.

For those who aren't aware, Star Fox 2 was originally in production for the SNES but was later canceled by Nintendo in 1995.

All in all, it looks like a fantastic library of games, but are there any titles you would've liked to see on the machine? Me?

Nintendo SNES Classic: What else is included? This time, the controller cables are a generous 1.5 metres long, so you don't have to sit right next to your TV like with the NES Classic. It's the same console, just with some different visual flair. Still, having your name on a waiting list is better than nothing. The console has of course been updated for modern television sets as it now sports an HDMI port instead of the RCA and coaxial ports found on the original.

"Significantly more units" definitely sounds good. We smell a SNES Mini stock crisis already, mostly because after Christmas you won't be able to buy one. There is some bad news, however.

When Nintendo launched the NES Classic earlier this year, gamers were excited for the opportunity to revisit their favorite classic Nintendo titles.

Sadly, all signs point to yes.

Much like how they've said that the discontinuation of the NES Classic Edition was due to their lack of "unlimited resources", Nintendo is once again singing the same tune.
