Nintendo’s follow up to their incredibly popular NES Classic retro console is coming. The SNES Classic was just announced by Big N and promises to give the classic treatment to 21 of the SNES’s biggest games, all in a tiny bundle that’s easier to plug in and play than its namesake original.
Scheduled to debut on September 29th, there’s no pre-ordering to do just yet but we can’t imagine that’s very far off. Given the NES Classic’s astounding popularity this past holiday season and the fact that Nintendo themselves discontinued production of the NES Classic, there’s no reason to think that the SNES Classic will be any less popular or hard to get.
The game’s included rounds up some of the second generation Nintendo system’s most beloved games. You can check out the game list right here but you can also rest assured that, if you’ve been itching to revisit amazing games like F-Zero, Super Mario World or Star Fox, this little gadget will scratch that itch.
