After the very sad news that Nintendo was discontinuing the cute as a button NES Classic Edition many gamers were left disappointed. Well, cheer up! If the new rumours are to be believed, we might see a Nintendo SNES Classic Edition releasing this year.
According to Eurogamer, Nintendo is planning to release a SNES Classic Edition later this year, possibly in time for the Christmas holidays. Now, the question remains, why would Nintendo stop production on the NES Classic Editon? Why not manufacture and sell both? According to Nintendo, the NES Classic Edtion was never intended to be a permanent part of the Nintendo product line, but rather a novelty item (read: quick cash grab).
If the NES Classic Editon is any indication a SNES Classic Edition should be just as, if not more, popular. Hopefully, this time around, Nintendo can manufacture enough units to satisfy the demand out there.
Of course, I couldn’t be more excited as some of my fondest childhood memories were playing games such as Super Mario World and Star Fox. Which games would you want to see pre-loaded on the rumoured SNES Classic Edition?
