Nintendo to Release Super NES Classic Edition

Nintendo to Release Super NES Classic Edition

his morning, Nintendo finally unveiled the look and details of the Super NES Classic Edition. The system will be released on September 29 and will run you $80, two months sooner than the NES Classic Edition was released at a $20 markup. Which means Nintendo learned their lesson about making more money off stuff it probably won’t have a lot of and pushed up the availability date so people could get it before Thanksgiving and not compete with the Switch during Christmas.

You get an HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers, no details on ethernet/wifi access. This system will only come with 21 games compared to the 30 you got with the predecessor. Here’s a list of what games will be on the system:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
