SNES Mini to Replace NES Classic Edition Console

SNES Mini to Replace NES Classic Edition Console

Moreover, the NES Classic Edition was also reportedly sold for $400, which is nearly the retail value of Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo is clearly on to a winning formula here, as the NES Classic proved.

Arguably the superior of the two consoles the SNES or Super Nintendo was home to countless classic 16-bit titles that both looked and played markedly better than those found on the 8-bit NES.

This is despite the fact that the recent price of NES Classic Edition is nearly six times the suggested retail price of $60 (almost at a part with today's new gen consoles).

Now, it seems most will have to widen their area of scope to get hold of a Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition game console. However, most may have forgotten that the resurrection of the famed 1986 game console was expected to be done on a limited basis.

The planned SNES is also one of the major reasons, the site adds, that the NES Mini was recently scrapped. Fans can expect the SNES Mini console to come out during the Christmas holiday. It was a tiny Nintendo with original controllers, 30 preloaded games, and an original controller. 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.

Nintendo have yet to release official word on the SNES, but sources close to the company confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

Top picks for the line-up would surely include Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, perhaps Super Mario All Stars, Starfox, Donkey Kong Country, Street Fighter II, Zelda: A Link to the Past, F-Zero, Chrono Trigger, Pilotwings, Secret of Mana, NBA Jam, Super Metroid, Super Mario RPG and Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts.

The Nintendo Switch, released this year, has sold about 2.4 million units worldwide and is the company's fastest-selling console in its history in the United States, according to van Dreunen.

The lowest priced Nintendo NES Classic console sells for $299 on amazon.com.
