Nintendo today announced the Super NES Classic Edition, a follow-up to the NES Classic Edition which was abruptly discontinued earlier this year. The SNES Classic Edition is set to release on September 29 for a suggested retail price of $79.99, but expect to pay a premium come launch day in the UAE as local retailers and online shops will certainly add a large profit margin for early sales.
The SNES Classic Edition will include 21 titles, including Star Fox 2, a game which never completed its development and hence, was never released. Here’s the full list:
The system will be bundled with two wired SNES Classic Controllers, an HDMI cable, and a USB power cable. Nintendo has promised longer cord length for the controllers, working on a critical issue with the NES Classic Edition which featured terribly short wires that required users to sit really close to the TV to play. The SNES Classic Controllers will be about 5ft longer, which is only about 2ft longer than the NES Classic Controller’s cords, so it’s not much.
Nintendo also promised to produce significantly more units of the Super NES Classic Edition though declined to provide a specific number. The NES Classic Edition ran on shortage pretty much immediately after launch and made finding it extremely difficult and rare despite shipping around 2.3 million units worldwide.
