Last year, Nintendo announced the NES Classic, a miniature version of the original Nintendo Entertainment System with 30 games built-in. The SNES (which stands for Super Nintendo Entertainment System ) was known for its strong lineup of games.
Users were complaining about how the NES Classic Edition's controller cable were too short for playing at a comfortable distance, so for the SNES Classic Edition, Nintendo has also made it slightly longer.
Europe will also be getting a similar design to Japan, though it will be labeled as the SNES Classic Edition. It is not yet available for pre-order.
"Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is now planned to ship from September 29 until the end of calendar year 2017", the company added. One game that never saw the light of day however, was Star Fox 2, with its release being cancelled despite the title being completed.
As with its now sold-out Classic Min: NES predecessor, the Classic Mini: SNES can be plugged into any HDMI slot on your TV for instant retro gaming goodness. "There have been versions of it floating around online, but this is the first time Nintendo's putting their stamp on it and actually shipping it to customers".

Police says 79 people are either dead or missing and presumed dead in the blaze, although that number may change. One hotel chain, Premier Inn, is calling in experts to make certain its properties meet safety regulations.
The only thing mentioned that would pacify would-be buyers is that they are at least committed to producing more units of the SNES as compared to the NES.
The system comes with 21 pre-installed games, including classics like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid, and F-ZERO. It's the same console, just with some different visual flair.
Still, a console lives and dies by its games, and the SNES had a ton of iconic titles. By the time demand finally began to settle, Nintendo abruptly announced it was discontinued, to the chagrin of many.
Here's how much it'll cost, and when you'll be able to buy it in Australia. Despite being a runaway success, Nintendo quietly pulled the Classic Mini NES from sale past year.
