Nintendo promises improved SNES Mini stock situation

There's no word on whether more games can be downloaded at a later date, but there were no releases for last year's Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Classic Edition at its launch in November. Sure, the SNES Classic has great games like "Super Mario World", "Super Punch-Out", "Super Metroid" "F-Zero", but there's still room for fan favorites like "Mario Paint", "Chrono Trigger", and "Donkey Kong Country 2" which is widely regarded as being better than it's predecessor. The New Nintendo 3DS suffers from the same problem - its charger must be purchased separately, which regularly leads to problems for parents with upset children. Faced with that sort of choice, it's handy to see how they all rank in direct competition. The demand for the system will likely increase as news of its existence leaves enthusiast circles and the mainstream audience that grew up with the Super Nintendo joins the hunt. In an April interview with Time, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé said the company sold 2.3 million Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Editions, despite the console constanly being in short supply.

The SNES Classic releases on September 29 and will retail for $79.99.

Nintendo will launch the SNES Classic Edition on September 29, with a price tag of $79.99.

Atari has made seven retro-lite versions of its old consoles over the past 13 years, but failed to generate the hype of the NES Classic Mini.

It's common in gaming for different regions to get different products - like consoles or versions of games, especially if they need to be localized for a specific market. It will be a thrill to replay some of these games. The upcoming mini-console boasts 21 games, including the previously unreleased Star Fox 2, but where's Chrono Trigger, Mortal Kombat, Earthworm Jim and Final Fight?

Nintendo's latest console, the Switch, has also been a hit with consumers.

Since the release of "Pokemon Go", Nintendo has been on a resurgence.
