Nintendo Has Revealed The Classic SNES Console

Super Mario World, Starfox and Yoshi’s Island are set to be re-released later this year as part of a new classic SNES console.

The original Super Nintendo Entertainment System, launched in 1990, sold 50 million units worldwide.

The SNES Classic follows the NES Classic, which went on sale late last year but abruptly discontinued in April – much to the frustration of fans.

Nintendo said limited resources were to blame, but insisted it would not make the same error with the SNES.

The company would not confirm if it intended to keep making the SNES Classic beyond the end of 2017.

“Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is currently planned to ship from Sept. 29 until the end of calendar year 2017,” the company added.

“We are offering Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition in special recognition of the fans who show tremendous interest our classic content.”

As well as the classic titles, Nintendo will also bundle in a game from the SNES era that was never actually released – Star Fox 2. The console will cost $79 in US, and £79.99 in the UK.
