After the success of the now discontinued NES classic Nintendo released earlier this year, the company has decided it will be taking the same route with the announcement of the SNES Classic. Set to release on September 29, the console will come packed with a copy of previously unreleased Star Fox 2, as well as 20 of the best games spanning back to the original release date of the SNES back in 1992.
“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 console will be built with full HDMI support, so no need to scramble to find that old tube TV with the composite connection. Based on early reports, the console will be available for a suggest retail price of around $80 and is expected to be extremely limited in terms of availablity.
