SNES Classic Edition Is Official
NES Classic Edition took us down through memory lane with the selected Nintendo retro hits. It was the console to get during the holiday season & the demand remained high after that. Despite being sold extremely well, Nintendo decided to drop the bomb by announcing NES Classic Edition is no longer in production. This caused a lot of speculation with one that Nintendo is releasing Super Nintendo Entertainment System sometime this year.
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic Edition is real guys. Nintendo officially announced SNES Classic Edition will be available this September 2017 for USD $79.99. It comes with 21 games, smaller library than 30 games that was included in NES Classic Edition, but it includes an extra controller in the package. SNES Classic Edition is also compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro.
SNES Classic Edition comes in 3 different flavours for different regions.
