Shut Up and Take My Money: Nintendo SNES Classic
Following up on the rampant success of the NES Classic, Nintendo is probably going to drive consumers crazy again trying to find the SNES Classic on store shelves at the end of September.
Outfitted with more than 20 games, the SNES Classic will launch on September 29th for a retail price of $79.99.
Interestingly, Nintendo is actually including a game that was never released for the SNES, Star Fox 2. While it was released for the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation, Nintendo held back on the release of Star Fox 2 due to the fear that it wouldn’t look as good on the SNES system, despite the first game selling well for Nintendo.
The entire list of games for the new SNES Classic include:
- 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
Similar to the NES Classic, the SNES Classic will come with a HDMI port to allow players to hook the system up to new televisions. It’s also likely that the SNES Classic will be in high demand this holiday season. We recommend pre-ordering the system when available. The NES Classic, which has been discontinued, was difficult to find during the holiday season and often sold for 5x the price on eBay.
