Nintendo Releasing SNES Mini in September on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

On 29th September the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo's follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, returns in a new petite form as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Launched in Europe in 1992, the Super Nintendo introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time - classics such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid and F-ZERO.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System contains 21 pre-installed classic games, can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable. For the first time, players who pick up the system can enjoy the intergalactic adventure Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox (originally titled Starwing upon release in Europe) game that was created during the Super Nintendo era but never released … anywhere!

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System has the same look and feel of the original system - only smaller - and comes pre-loaded with 21 games:

· 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

All of these games would be considered classics by anyone's standards, and some of them in particular - Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans who have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 will offer them something entirely new to enjoy (players must prove their skill by completing the first level of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).

Included with the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System are one HDMI cable, one USB power cable, and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers - perfect for players to dive into multiplayer action right away. Some of the games with multiplayer options include Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III: The Alien Wars and Secret of Mana.

Step back into the '90s and re-experience some timeless classics when the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System launches in Europe on 29th September.

I hardly played my NES one, but I was never big on it anyway, as I grew up on the SNES. I will defo put some time into the SNES one. I really wanna replay Super Metroid, maybe Yoshi's Island. Still salty bout only having DKC1 tho.

I don't touch the NES games, I mainly play SNES games on the NES Mini (especially fan translated games), whilst trying the odd other compatible title. S'all good Smilie

Only the joystick on the N64 was a bummer after a while. The rest of the controller was completely fine in my eyes. Even today the 64 controller holds up as my 2nd favourite controller of all time. 

The library on the N64 is definitely less desirable without the Rare games, and while Goldeneye will never see the light of day again its not beyond the realms of possibility to get Conker/Banjo/PD. Although I doubt it will be the HD versions of those games (just as well imo)

However with Mario64, OoT, MM, DK64, Diddy Kong Racing Mario Kart, Mario Party, Smash, LylatWars (Starfox64) Yoshi's Story,  WaveRace, 1080, Pokemon Snap, Pokemon Stadium and perhaps add in an a couple of the obscure 3rd party games like Hybrid Heaven , Turok Rage Wars, Harvest Moon, Space Station Silicon Valley and you could have a collection on your hands although not as epic as the SNES library admittedly. 

They could also add in 64DD games like Fzero X's expansion pack or games like Sin and Punishment which is already in English (and available on the VC).

As for the SNES Classic I still wonder if that cartridge slot would be used for anything, perhaps they could sell a 2nd volume of games with things like DKC2,3, Actraiser, Chrono Trigger etc albeit it would be an expensive way to do it...

Also, Marzy, if you want one I wouldn't hold off on getting one, despite Nintendo saying they are upping the production I guarentee it'll still be nigh impossible to get one if you don't secure a pre-order ASAP!

Yep, there's never any harm putting a preorder down and cancelling it if you really decide against it. I preordered at Amazon and NUK, and good job, because it means both me and my brother can get one each now.

Yeah I'll definitely put in a pre-order for one, when I get the chance. I've been looking the last 2 days, but nothing so far.

Keep checking the Nintendo Store and Amazon, Amazon replenished the other day but they all went again. You have to be quick off the mark though!
