SNES Mini to Replace NES Classic Edition Console

Nintendo is working on a Mini SNES—report

This is despite the fact that the recent price of NES Classic Edition is nearly six times the suggested retail price of $60 (almost at a part with today's new gen consoles). (Hopefully without the accompanying fits of rage from gamers unable to get their hands on one without paying a huge mark-up.) The Super Nintendo was released in the U.S.in 1991. According to BGR, Nintendo has yet to confirm (or deny) these reports though it seems like a sensible explanation on why Nintendo pulled the plug on the hard-to-find Nintendo Mini NES Classic edition.

As the Nintendo Entertainment System's tiny official remake, the Nintendo Classic Edition (or Nintendo Classic Mini, ) is being prepared for retirement, an eagerly awaited successor is said to be waiting in the wings.

Details are still sparse.

"Super Mario World" is one of the classic games expected to be included in the SNES Classic Mini.

To avoid further shortcomings, albeit minor ones, Nintendo need to make the cables longer on the controllers, they were simply far too short, also a higher volume games ready for launch would be very welcome. This decision, in large part, was a factor in ending production of the NES Classic Edition. This news was shortly followed by a report which claimed the company was pivoting to develop an SNES Mini.

All we have to say is this: Nintendo, are y'all taking video game requests?

Nintendo fans who didn't score a NES Classic past year may have a second shot at getting their hands on another beloved retro gadget.

Meanwhile, there are also speculations that Nintendo is concerned with the possibility that the NES Classic Edition may take the spotlight of the new feature Switch Virtual Console.

Nintendo announced a discontinuation of NES Mini earlier this month, with a spokesperson telling IGN that "Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year".
