SNES MINI CLASSICNintendo finally set the release date for it’s new retro gaming console called SNES Mini Classic to 29th of September 2017, so fans all over the world started hunting the available preorders in order to get their hands on it as it’s still available on big retailers stock. The rush for grabbing a piece is well sustained thinking about how things turned last year when the 8bit Nes Classic was released and so many where left with the money in their pockets as the available number of pieces to be sold didn’t even cover half of the demand.

Even though Nintendo promised a larger number of units to be available for the SNES Mini classic as compared to it’s predecesor, currently all major retailers have out of stock listed for any incoming preorders. The announced price for the new console is set to 80$ including the 21 preinstalled games listed below:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars™
  • Donkey Kong Country™
  • EarthBound™
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO™
  • 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™

Addicted retro gamers probably spotted Star Fox  2 above, a title that never got published by Nintendo even though it was finished and ready to be launched since the mid ’90s, so I bet this one adds a lot to the value of the new palm sized console.

Unwrapping the box, beside the actual console you will also get 1 USB power cable, 1 HDMI cable and 2 controllers compared one that was available for the previous NES. Because of the 2 available controllers  games like Street Fighter Turbo, Contra III, Super Mario Kart Donkey Kong Country and some others can be also be played in multiplayer mode. Another aspect worth mentioning is the fact that the new SNES controllers do have longer cables so now, one can comfortably enjoy playing while sitting on the sofa, yet no AC adapter for the USB cable comes as a bundle so if you need to plug it into a wall socket you will have the use one of your owns.

The SNES Mini classic will have different aspect depending on the region it supposed to be sold US, EU, JAPAN just like it’s original version from the ’90
