The long-awaited 'Super NES Classic' is finally unveiled

Nintendo announced Monday that they're re-releasing a version of the mini Nintendo game system that we all know and love.

Additionally, Nintendo has stated that they intend to produce far more SNES Classic Editions than they did NES Classic Editions. The games are all internal, and we hope, like the Classic Edition NES, you can save at any time. The SNES classic is designed with the original look and feel of the SNES in mind, just on a slightly smaller scale. Nintendo is promising that the SNES Mini stock when it launches on September 27 will be better than the NES Mini availability was. So, do you guys plan on trying to get the SNES Classic or will you just let this one go?

Still, it's nice to see Nintendo acknowledge the shortcomings of its last plug-and-play device.

These Nintendo games would be considered classics by anyone's standards, and some of them in particular - Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy 3, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete.

As well as the classic titles, Nintendo will also bundle in a game from the SNES era that was never actually released - Star Fox 2.

The system will use standard HDMI cables and a USB power cable, the adapter for standard power sockets will not be included in the box, however.

In a move that will come as a surprise to few, Nintendo has confirmed their intentions to release a Super Nintendo Classic Edition before the end of the year.

On the other hand, there is still a possibility that everyone that wants to get an SNES Classic might not have the chance. This should mean you'll be able to walk into a store or click on a "buy" link without everything going to shit. Despite being a runaway success, Nintendo quietly pulled the Classic Mini NES from sale a year ago.

"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", the statement says.

Early this morning, Nintendo announced the SNES Mini Classic, a retro-styled miniature console with 21 game preloaded.
