    Release date announced.

    http://m.ign.com/articles/2017/06/26/super-nes-classic-edition-announced-and-dated

    Not a huge surprise after the craze over the NES Classic.

    This will also probably be hard as hell to find and limited time only.

    If you liked these games and have no other way to play them now, this would be a cool purchase.

    I'm skipping out on this, seems like a waste of time to even bother looking for it when I have all these on my PC.

    Here's the game list.
    • Contra III: The Alien Wars
    • Donkey Kong Country
    • EarthBound
    • Final Fantasy III
    • F-ZERO
    • 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
    Pretty good list but less games included this time around. Zelda, Super Metroid, and Final Fantasy III/VI are hefty games though. And Star Fox 2 is an interesting inclusion since that game was never officially released. That game alone makes this a huge collectors item. I don't get why they included the basic version of Street Fighter II when Super SF II could have easily been included instead. Strange.

    I didn't care much for the NES classic, but this thing looks sweet and I want it. I played a lot more SNES than I did NES.

    I'm torn. On the one hand, I'd love to get ahold of Star Fox 2. On the other hand, I have an SNES that still works fine, and ¼ of the games included. On the third hand, I'm hopeful this will mean that the cartridge version of Super Mario RPG will become affordable, because I really want to play it on real hardware - emulators seem to suck at some of the visual and sound effects on that one, in different ways.

    Contrary to what I had assumed in the original post, Nintendo has actually done a pretty good job of keeping up with demand so this mini console is widely available.

    If you are still interested and haven’t gotten one yet, they should be pretty easy to find. Or at least buy off someone for a reasonable price.

    I did not get one but I will definitely be getting an N64 Classic if that becomes a thing. Shut up and take my money, Nintendo!

    That is a hard system to emulate and I don’t want to spend a ton of money trying to collect for an original system. And the N64 analog sticks were notorious for breaking over time so most of the original controllers are probably useless. And I’ve heard the games look really awful on modern HD screens. An N64 classic could probably solve some of the problem with an HDMI connection and some scanline filters?
