For those still sour about not being able to purchase an NES Classic Edition, there’s some good news. Nintendo has announced that they will be releasing a SNES Classic Edition this September.
Now, once you’ve stopped screaming hysterically, there is even more exciting news. The never before released Star Fox 2 will form part of the bundled games that will come pre-installed on the SNES Classic Edition. The console will also include two wired controllers, a USB charger, and an HDMI output. Hopefully, this time around the controllers will have sufficiently long cables as this was something the NES Classic Edition sorely lacked. The best part is that the console will retail for $79.99. Which many would agree is totally worth the price considering the games that come bundled with the console.
So what magnificent nostalgic gems can you expect to come bundled with the console along with Star Fox 2 (I still can’t believe we’ll get to play Star Fox 2)? The list is actually quite impressive and includes such childhood greats like The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, Secret of Mana, Super Mario Kart and EarthBound.
Here is a list of the rest of the games that will be included, brace yourself:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars™
- Donkey Kong Country™
- Final Fantasy III
- 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™
Although the list of games is quite impressive, the question still remains, will Nintendo be able to keep up with the demand for the console when it releases? Many Nintendo fans found themselves heartbroken (and completely devastated) when they weren’t able to get their hands on the NES Classic Edtion. Let’s hope Nintendo has learned from this mistake.
