Rumours confirmed: Nintendo is about to launch a SNES Classic console, a miniaturized version of the magnificent Super NES of the early 90s, no doubt to the delight of nostalgia players worldwide. The SNES Classic will come with 21 games (Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda, etc.), including Star Fox 2, which was never released originally. The system will be available as of September 29 for US$80, and will come with two controllers. Just 5 games are truly simultaneous multiplayer games. Let’s hope that Nintendo doesn’t repeat the NES Classic fiasco, which was hard to get in the first place, then unceremoniously axed in April despite high demand.
