Nintendo SNES Classic May Be Coming This Year

NES classic Uber

Despite the demand for the console, Nintendo recently confirmed that production on the NES Classic Edition had stopped worldwide. Development on this mini console has already begun, and Nintendo is gearing up for a holiday release. Nintendo said that was because some users bought both a limited edition of the game and another version.

The SNES mini will reportedly come with a library of games pre-installed, along with a plug-and-play setup similar to its predecessor, the NES Classic. Plus, for every great NES game there are at least five on the SNES, meaning there are countless opportunities to stick undeniable classics on the dinky little machine. We're hoping that this system sticks around for good, but we still recommend staying vigilant so you can order one the second they go on sale. What's more, while Nintendo technically sold more NES than SNES consoles over their respective lifetimes (roughly 62 million versus 49 million), the SNES is generally remembered as the superior experience. If Eurogamer's miniature SNES report is accurate, of course, it torpedoes that theory: why cancel one potential conflict of interest only to introduce another?

It looks like Nintendo has another video game console planned for 2017, and it's a throwback to the early 1990s. Don't console - excuse the pun - us with a handful of games, think about adding features like Wi-Fi, more storage options, and access to a retro storefront with quality content? One of the more widely-heard rumors is that "Nintendo doesn't have the resources to increase Switch production and make NES Classics at the same time". Super Mario World pretty much has to be there, but the rest of the lineup is an open book.
