Please actually make enough for everyone this time.
Nintendo dominated last year’s holiday season with the mini NES and now sources reveal they’re heading back to the 16-bit era with a Super Nintendo version.
Sources close to the big N tell Eurogamer that the mini console is planned for the 2017 holiday season and already in development. It would also explain Nintendo’s baffling recent decision to discontinue the NES iteration despite its enormous popularity, limited supply and skyrocketing resale value.
The draw of the NES Classic Edition was the well-curated roster of 30 preloaded games which only raises exciting speculation about this edition. Games such as The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past, Chrono Trigger, Megaman X, Super Metroid and Final Fantasy 6 are all-time classics (not to mention their soundtracks), but there are plenty of gems to be unearthed.
The company could very well announce something at E3 this June, but for now we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, revisit this 1991 SNES commercial with a disturbingly ageless Paul Rudd below.
