SNES Classic Edition Confirmed – Arriving This Fall With the Unreleased Star Fox 2
All aboard the nostalgia train! Ever since it was announced the NES Classic would be discontinued, rumors have been swelling that the next console in line would receive the same treatment. Naturally, gamers were all for this, especially since the first Classic didn’t exist nearly long enough for everyone to obtain one. Today, the rumors become truth as Nintendo has announced that the SNES Classic Edition is real, will include 21 games, and it will be arriving this fall.
As can be seen on Nintendo’s website, the SNES Classic will come in two variants, each specific to the US and EU markets. The console will come pre-loaded with 21 titles, which includes the never-before-released Star Fox 2. It will also be bundled with “two wired retro Super NES Classic Controllers” as well as an HDMI cable and a USB power cable. While the US version will include the AC adapter one would require to use the USB cable for power, the European version won’t. Here’s the list of the 21 titles included with the SNES Classic:
- 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
The SNES Classic Edition will be arriving on September 29 and it will cost $79.99. There is no word on what the price will be in the UK and Australia, but one could assume it would roughly be comparable. One could also hope that this means Nintendo is going to keep the ball rolling on these mini versions of nostalgia and we will one day see a N64 Classic. Stick around with Don’t Feed the Gamers to know when that becomes a reality!
