This Friday Nintendo is set to release the new SNES, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, a console for anyone with classic 90’s nostalgia. For $80 you can play 20 Super Nintendo games from Super Mario, Zelda, Kirby, and Star Fox.
A sophomore miniature version following the NES Classic Edition released last fall, the SNES is a scaled down version of the original Super Nintendo and is expected to do well after addressing the NES’ one major flaw of extremely short controller cords. However, with the new SNES you are only getting 20 games opposed to the NES with 30, it seems that this year Nintendo is going for quality over quantity.
“The SNES Classic is approximately one-seventh the size of the original Super Nintendo — seriously, it’s pretty hilarious to compare the two side by side. Nintendo has, unsurprisingly, done an amazing job in recreating the original look.”
Did we mention that the SNES also comes with the never-before-released Star Fox 2?
