    The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, launched in 1991 and 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.

    On Sept. 29, this beloved console is coming back to stores in the form of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition. The mini system, which contains 21 pre-installed classic games and can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable, will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. And 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 game that was created during the Super NES era but never released … anywhere!

    “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.”

    The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition has the same look and feel of the original system – only smaller – and comes pre-loaded with 21 incredible 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 game will offer them something entirely new to enjoy – if they can unlock it by proving their skills in the original Star Fox game. (Well, they only have to complete the first level – we didn’t want to make it too hard!)

    Included with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition are one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers, perfect for playing multiplayer games. Having two controllers will make it easy for two 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.

    *Note that an AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the system but is not included in the packaging.

    The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition launches on Sept. 29 at a suggested retail price of $79.99.

    Can't wait for them to produce a whole 6, only to have 1 person buy them all and sell them for $2000 each.

    I would definitely rather have this than an NES Classic. I just hope it doesn't have the same supply issues as its predecessor.

    When will the DS Classic come out? :P I want to play my NDS Games on a super small handheld.

    I actually like it they are doing this. I can definitely see myself buying a GC Classic when it comes out, or Wii Classic since well, I was around those days.

    Can't wait to go on craigslist and see em going for 500 bucks. Luckily I have almost every game on that list on my 3ds. Though it would still be nice to have one.

    I really want the pal version for the colored buttons - the ntsc super nintendo controller is so ugly in comparison.
