If you, like me, were a child in the 90’s then you’d remember the Nintendo SNES fondly. Unfortunately, like tape cassettes and videos, the SNES was made obsolete and relegated to the annuals of history in which young Justin Bieber fans ponder what exactly tape cassettes, videos and the SNES was. Well, ponder no more Bieber fans because Nintendo is releasing the SNES Classic in September.

Nintendo Announces the SNES Classic - Complete With 21 Pre-Loaded Games

Nintendo’s SNES Classic

Like the previously released NES Classic, the SNES Classic will be a standalone, mini console. It will allow players to easily play retro games on HiDef televisions. In a press release, Nintendo said that it would be producing and shipping significantly more units than it did with the NES Classic. When the NES Classic released last year, stock was short and the product was discontinued in April this year. In the release about the SNES Classic, Nintendo carried on to say, “At the this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year.” It looks like the SNES Classic may go the same way as the NES Classic with its limited run. Let’s hope that they produce enough units to meet demand at release.

In the same release, Nintendo tried to justify the limited release, “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 63 million owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems. We are offering Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition in special recognition of the fans who show tremendous interest our classic content.”

The SNES Classic is due for release on the 29th of September 2017 and is going to be priced at $79.99.
