After flailing around for a few years with the Wii U, Nintendo is back. This sucker is jam-packed with classic SNES games. F-Zero, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World and more. And wait, Star Fox 2?! Yep, the never officially released sequel to Star Fox is coming with 21 other games on September 29th.
For $80, you get two controllers and 21 outstanding games. Seriously, there isn’t a questionable game here. Take a look.
– 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™
The big question is, will Nintendo produce more of these than the last time around with the NES Classic? The NES Classic was a big win for Nintendo, and they decided to stop making them. Why? I don’t think any of us will understand what Nintendo is thinking half the time. Surely they know the demand is here for them to make an epic ton of these to sell.
I know one thing. Don’t expect a ‘virtual console’ on Switch anytime soon with this floating around. That isn’t happening. We know some classic games will come to Switch as part of its online service subscription launching next year. But details are still slim on what games will come.
“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”
Yeah, if Nintendo makes enough of them. Scalpers had a field day with NES Classic. Expect more of the same with SNES Classic.
