Nintendo just dropped another N-bomb on us and this time they are hitting nostalgia with Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES for short). We really hope to see more classic consoles including Sega’s but this is something Nintendo has mastered over the years apart from all of the industry, they are the ones who have been able to strike those chords. Xbox however gives backwards compatibility to its users to satisfy their nostalgic cravings.
The rumors are true and we will be getting one of our favorite console from the 90’s with the capability to play it on our high-definition TVs of today. This should come as no surprise given NES classic was a super hit. It sold 2 million units and was really hard to get your hands on one due to the immense demand. Nintendo however discontinued it which makes us wonder why a company would give up on truckloads of money that they can later inject in their latest gen console, just like that. Well, that is an answer only Nintendo execs can give.
The SNES will launch later this September. SNES will cost $79.99 in the US. This will be a miniaturized edition developed to work on latest gen TVs, just like the NES Classic. This time around Nintendo is selling the console with two controllers, unlike the last time they launched NES Classic with only one controller. The console will offer an HDMI connection to connect the console to your TV. At launch the console will come with 21 games. The list will also include Star Fox which will have to be unlocked by finishing the first level.
