Nintendo Announces The Nintendo Classic Mini SNES; Will Include 21 Games On Release In September

In an announcement that has been rumoured for a while now, Nintendo this morning finally formally announced the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the system of yore affectionately known as the SNES.

The mini SNES will ship with 21 games, including the never before released Star Fox 2 as well as favourites such as Donkey Kong CountryThe Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Mario World and Super Mario Kart. The full list of games can be found below:

  • 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™

All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them in particular – Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans that have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 will offer them something entirely new to enjoy (players must prove their skill by completing the first level of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).

Nintendo also announced that the mini SNES will launch on September 30, 2017 for $119.95 AUD. EB Games and JB Hi-Fi currently have pre-orders open with EB requiring a minimum deposit of $30 and JB requring the full amount. Both have a limit of 1 unit per person.

Included with the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System are one HDMI cable, one USB power cable, and two wired Nintendo Classic Mini: Super NES Controllers. Note that an AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the system but is not included in the packaging.
