Now we’re talkin!
Missed out on the NES Classic last year? I would really suggest that you skip searching for that and set your sights on this one instead! Nintendo brings back one of it’s best consoles, the SNES Classic!
Unlike it’s older brother, the lineup of games is actually pretty solid! ALL OF THEM in fact! Here’s the list:
- 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
Did you catch all that?! The previously unreleased game Star Fox 2 will finally be playable in all of it’s 16-bit glory! Though it is said that you need to finish the first level of the original Star Fox to unlock this hidden gem. It shouldn’t be that “Nintendo hard” for us old-schoolers right?
I must say those are really some great games! Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy III (6 if you’re being accurate), Earthbound, Yoshi’s Island… There isn’t a single game here that’s bad!
The console comes with an HDMI cable, a charging cable and two SNES controllers. Expect this to hit our friendly local game stores on September 29 with an SRP of $80.
I don’t know about you but for me Nintendo just won 2017.
