Is there anything more satisfying than sitting down in front of something from your childhood and enjoying it as if you were still a kid? For many of us we grew up in front of the Super Nintendo playing games like ‘Super Mario World’, ‘Zelda’ and ‘Star Fox’. These games have only gotten better with age and the company behind them, Nintendo, have been more than busy porting their beloved characters and heroes into new versions of themselves for modern consoles. But still, nothing hits you quite the same as the original versions. That is why so many people are clamoring to get a hold of the SNES Classic. Let’s break down the latest news regarding one of Nintendo’s newest releases.
Fans of Nintendo likely already got their hands on the NES Classic which was released last year. The SNES Classic is built in much the same way and with many of the same perks. This miniature console brings forward all of the classic Super Nintendo games that you love into modern day on a console that is easy to use and affordable to buy. The SNES Classic goes for just $80 and it comes pre-loaded with a massive SNES library. The library of games is the primary draw that will bring gamers out in full force to get their hands on the SNES Classic.
The SNES Classic will be available world wide on September 29th, 2017. The game will be released in Japan a little bit later under the auspices of the Super Famicom Classic name. The Japanese release of the SNES Classic will have a more expansive library of game options but the Western release still has a wonderful depth of games to play, all available in digital format right from your miniature console.
Learning from their mistakes with the NES Classic, Nintendo decided to over-ship the amount of consoles that they would have available at launch for the SNES Classic. There are already a slew of titles announced publicly for fans to get excited about including the entire SNES line of Super Mario titles including: Kart, RPG, and World. Also included in the digital library is ‘Zelda: A Link to the Past’, ‘Super Metroit’, ‘Super Castlevania IV’ ‘Mega Man X’, ‘Earthbound’ and more. The deep library should bring in rabid gamers while the ease of use and low price point should bring in more casual players to the console.
