Nintendo promises improved SNES Mini stock situation

Nintendo is releasing the Super NES Classic Edition on September 29th

However, Nintendo has told Kotaku that the situation will be better this time, albeit with a big caveat. The SNES (which stands for Super Nintendo Entertainment System ) was known for its strong lineup of games.

"We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition", a Nintendo spokesperson said. Thankfully, the SNES Classic is compatible with both the classic controller and the classic controller pro. Had the device not been discontinued, it's likely gamers would have continued purchasing the NES Classic at great pace despite the cord length, though longer third-party cords would have inevitably been created. Then the SNES Classic was followed by the NES Classic, which was launched past year but unfortunately was discontinued from this April. Although Nintendo has stated that there will be more SNES Classic units available, it is unclear just how many will be in circulation.

Those 21 games that it comes with include titles like Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, F-Zero, Super Metroid, Mega Man X, Yoshi's Island and more. Yes, Nintendo intends to release the long-lost Star Fox 2 as part of the SNES Classic Edition lineup. However, you will need to complete the first level of Star Fox to "unlock" the sequel.

On the other hand, there is still a possibility that everyone that wants to get an SNES Classic might not have the chance. The miniature console will also ship with a USB power adapter and an HDMI cable. We smell a SNES Mini stock crisis already, mostly because after Christmas you won't be able to buy one.

As was previously rumored, Nintendo has officially announced the Super Nintendo Classic Edition. It follows the NES Classic that went on sale late previous year but was discontinued in April citing limited resources.
