Expect more Super NES Classic units than with NES Mini

Expect more Super NES Classic units than with NES Mini

It will retail for $79.99 Dollars but per a year ago, if Nintendo doesn't ship enough units, people are going to jack up the price before the holiday rush. However, one of the biggest areas of criticism about the device was the length of its controller cords.

Users were complaining about how the NES Classic Edition's controller cable were too short for playing at a comfortable distance, so for the SNES Classic Edition, Nintendo has also made it slightly longer. It is also compatible with the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories. In a statement sent to Time, the gaming giant said it will ship "significantly more units" of the SNES Classic Edition than its predecessor. Either way the SNES Classic Edition will be out on the 29th of September later this year for $80, so definitely don't hesitate to pre-order it if you don't want to miss out on it.

Classic games Donkey Kong and Super Mario World will be available on Nintendo's new retro mini gaming console.

The NES Classic Mini should have been a home run for Nintendo- and if the intent was to generate some awareness and buzz around the Nintendo brand again, then I guess it was.

After revealing the Star Fox 2's inclusion in the SNES Classic earlier today, Nintendo released a new piece of art for the game promoting it's inclusion on the system. However, you will need to complete the first level of Star Fox to "unlock" the sequel. It was basically impossible to get your hands on an NES Classic even when it launched. Some of the fan favorites are The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Yoshi Island, Final Fantasy III, Earthbound, and more.

The reproduction of the Super Famicom, sold overseas as Super NES, comes in response to strong requests from game fans for its recreation after the revival last November of Nintendo's "Family Computer" console, which debuted in 1983 and is known as Nintendo Entertainment System outside Japan. An HDMI cable is included in the box, along with a USB cable but NOT an AC power plug. We smell a SNES Mini stock crisis already, mostly because after Christmas you won't be able to buy one.
