It’s a good time to be a retro gamer because Nintendo confirmed that it will be bringing back one of its most popular consoles from the ‘90s, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).
Nintendo apparently said they will be introducing a miniature version of the SNES Classic Edition with additional features for modern gaming, Eurogamer reports.
The 16-bit console is a follow-up to the older NES Classic Edition, which Nintendo also reintroduced to the public last year. The retro system, which surprisingly still flew off shelves, came with wired controllers and updated connectors for easier connection to present day TV sets.
The bad news though is that Nintendo has yet to announce an exact launch date for the SNES. On the up side they said the retro system will be released in time for Christmas 2017.
So far, there’s also no games list out yet, but it's expected to have around 30 built-in games when it's launched.
Fans are excited to get their hands on the console that introduced them to some of the best classics from over two decades ago, like Super Mario World, Final Fantasy VI, Mega Man, and Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Here’s a list of games that could be included in the SNES lineup:
