Nintendo is planning to utilize gamer's nostalgia once again to rake in cash with the official announcement of yet another retro console replica, the "Super #Nes Classic Edition". So, some good news out there today is that Nintendo will be manufacturing an SNES Classic Edition with a never before released game.
The new SNES will cost $79.99 (£62.90) and have the same look and feel of the classic 90s console, but will be smaller than the original. In-fact, it was done so far in advance that Nintendo could have apparently released the game more than 18 months before the Nintendo 64 released.
When Nintendo launched the NES Classic earlier this year, gamers were excited for the opportunity to revisit their favorite classic Nintendo titles. That's your own decision so I'll let you be on that.
"Our long-term efforts are focused on delivering great games for the Nintendo Switch system and continuing to build momentum for that platform, as well as serving the more than 63m owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems".
On September 29, Nintendo is bringing back the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition. As such, the hype for SNES Classic preorders has begun.
Japanese game maker behind the franchise has announced it will soon release a miniature version of its SNES classic home console, with preloaded fan favourites Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country and Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Collectors will no doubt want to get both if you can find them. The SNES Classic will boast a price tag of $79 in the U.S., and £79.99 in the UK.
Sega, whose Megadrive console competed fiercely with the SNES in the Nineties, recently said it would re-release a huge library of games as part of a Netflix-style scheme.
