Nintendo to Reportedly Launch SNES Mini in Late 2017

In 1985 those bikes were exciting

It appears that the SNES Classic or SNES mini as Eurogamer is calling it, is why you can't find a NES Classic at all. Development on this mini console has already begun, and Nintendo is gearing up for a holiday release. According to the sources quoted in the report, Nintendo is likely to continue with its current branding and call it Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Whatever Nintendo thought was enough for the NES Classic, they'll need triple this time.

What we also got was more bad PAL conversions, that often ran at a quarter of the proper speed with ugly black borders.

If Nintendo doesn't screw this up, they could look like they know what their fans want with this possible micro console. That would presumably include Nintendo's first-party classics like Super Mario World, A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid, along with a smattering of third-party standouts. I doubt, in other words, that we've really seen the last of the NES Classic forever and ever amen. As the NES Mini is out of production now, it seems that the Japanese tech giant has started working to produce the next Mini console.

There's no telling what games will be available for the SNES Classic Edition, but numerous most highly regarded video games in history came out on the second home console from Nintendo.

The report could explain why the NES Classic was recently discontinued despite sustained demand.

The company's latest console just became the fastest selling video game system in the U.S.in the company's history.
