Super Nintendo Mini Coming This Year

In 1985 those bikes were exciting

Nintendo always intended the NES mini to be a limited run system.

Nintendo needed a hit after its previous console, the Wii U, flopped.

A new rumbling is happening on the web and it's about another retro console making a comeback.

There should also be plenty of third party games, and we'd hope for the likes of Street Fighter II Turbo, Contra III, ActRaiser, and Super Castlevania IV.

According to Eurogamer - a publication with an excellent track record for this sort of thing - "sources close to Nintendo" confirmed that a mini SNES is planned for a Christmas launch. Today, though, we're hearing a rather interesting rumor that could have something to do with the demise of the NES Classic: Nintendo may want to make way for an incoming SNES Classic Edition.

Assuming the SNES Classic will have the same static lineup as the NES Classic did, it's going to be hard to please everyone, especially if they limit the lineup to 30 games.

What we also got was more awful PAL conversions, that often ran at a quarter of the proper speed with ugly black borders.

SNES Classic Mini price - How much will it cost?

This report follows on from news yesterday, which discovered that the Japanese company would be discontinuing manufacture of their highly popular NES Mini. Following the initial release, Nintendo barely provided retailers fresh stocks of the NES mini, and demand grew immensely.

What do you think about the SNES Mini? It's home to some of my favourite games ever, including the likes of Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 6, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Metroid - and the first good home version of Street Fighter II. Fans will like it not because of its similar to NES Classic Mini. The device is expected to connect to televisions via an HDMI port and let users play digital games bundled with the console.

Mini in November previous year at Christmas time, and it managed to ship more than 1.5 million units worldwide of the palm-sized version of the 1983 classic.
