Mini Super Nintendo rumoured for Christmas launch

NES classic Uber

Eurogamer recently reported that the SNES mini (or the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System) has been set to hit the market around Christmas this year, with development already underway.

Nintendo fans who didn't score a NES Classic previous year may have a second shot at getting their hands on another beloved retro gadget. The NES Classic Edition system is a miniaturized version of the groundbreaking NES, originally released in 1985. For this reason, speculations suggest that the discontinued NES Classic Edition will be revitalized as a new gen console sometime in the future. The original NES Mini was an unexpectedly large success that should logically inspire Nintendo to mine more of its classic hardware for more easy profits.

Eurogamer, though, hopes that Nintendo has learned its lesson with the NES Mini and come out this time with enough stocks to avoid the same mistake. But it can not be further extended since SNES Mini will be coming later this year. And this time around, the Japanese company may want to factor in some numbers and produce larger volumes of the game console to avoid supply shortages.

Their report claims Nintendo's plan with the NES mini was always to only ship the tiny console as a novelty item during the Christmas 2016 period and never meant to sell it as a permanent product. These are really the games that I grew up with, and I'd be most excited to have these on tap to play.

The palm-sized NES console, retailing for $59.99 list price, features the classic Nintendo NES controller many geeks have grown up with.

Vintage titles such as Donkey Kong, Metroid, Mega Man 2, Super Mario Bros and its two direct sequels and the first the Legend of Zelda games were part of the package.

Xbox Scorpio, PlayStation 4 Pro (PS4 Pro) and Nintendo Switch are among the new gen consoles of 2017 that everyone is drooling to buy.
