SNES Classic Announced for Fall Release

Earlier today, Nintendo announced the launch of their new SNES Classic, a follow up to the NES Classic that launched last Fall. The miniature SNES will have 21 games, including Star Fox 2, the unreleased sequel to Star Fox.


Nintendo’s last foray into classic console reboots, the NES Classic, was nearly impossible to find, and got suddenly discontinued earlier this year. News of the SNES Classic is also coming on the heels of an announcement that Nintendo’s new online service will include a subscription to play some of their classic games.

The SNES Classic costs $80, and can play 21 games, including:

  • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Punch-Out
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Mega Man X
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Yoshi’s Island
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Contra II: The Alien Wars
  • Secret of Mana
  • Earthbound
  • Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • F-ZERO
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid

The console launches on September 29 this year.
