Nintendo has finally announced the Super NES Classic Edition, the second mini system after the NES Classic which was discontinued earlier this year.
According to the press release, the mini system will have 21 pre-installed classic Super Nintendo Entertainment System games:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars™
- Donkey Kong Country™
- Final Fantasy III
- Kirby™ Super Star
- Kirby’s Dream Course™
- The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
- Mega Man® X
- Secret of Mana
- Star Fox™
- Star Fox™ 2
- Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
- Super Castlevania IV™
- Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
- Super Mario Kart™
- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars™
- Super Mario World™
- Super Metroid™
- Super Punch-Out!! ™
- Yoshi’s Island™
If your eyes rolled when you saw Star Fox 2, that’s not a typo. The game is a full sequel to the original Star Fox that was completed but never released. Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III (VI), EarthBound (Mother), and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars are all amazing JRPGs of the 16-bit era. And then you have true classics from all the major franchises and genres, from platforms like Donkey Kong Country and Super Castlevania IV to fighting games like Street Fighter II. It doesn’t get more nostalgic than this.
I personally would have liked to see a few more classic JRPGs like Chrono Trigger and Secret of Evermore. But this is as close to a Top 20 Snes selection you can get. Do you have a favorite Super Nintendo title you miss from the list?
The bundle will come out in 29 September and it will cost $79.99. It will include the Super NES Classic Edition, one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter (probably not included in the European edition), and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers.
We still don’t know the price for the European edition, but we do know that it will feature the system and controller’s regional design and will have an alternate packaging title: Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
