Take our money! Nintendo unveils Super NES Classic Edition

Earlier this year, Nintendo confirmed that they would sieze the production of NES Classic Mini. However, one of the biggest areas of criticism about the device was the length of its controller cords. Hopefully, this means the SNES Classic Edition makes its way to more Nintendo fans rather than opportunistic eBay scalpers this time around.

While it remains to be seen if Nintendo underestimated demand once again, it does seem that the company has paid attention to the most frequent criticism levelled at the NES Classic hardware itself: the cables on the SNES Classic controllers will be 1.5 metres long, 60 centimetres longer than the tiny cords from a year ago. It is also compatible with the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories.

The Nintendo SNES Classic will retail for $119.99 in Australia.

The SNES Classic will have 21 games installed on it when it launches, nine less than the NES Classic, which had 30 games on it to start with.

Unfortunately, it looks like the SNES Classic is another limited time offer, like the NES Classic Mini was. It can play classic retro games in high definition thanks to the inclusion of the HDMI cable.

The latest console will come with 21 games including The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Star Fox 2. You'll actually have to unlock Star Fox 2 as a bonus game by finishing the first level of the original Star Fox. It's the same console, just with some different visual flair. The new classic console replica, also called the "Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System" in Europe, has always been rumored to be coming. It was basically impossible to get your hands on an NES Classic even when it launched. We smell a SNES Mini stock crisis already, mostly because after Christmas you won't be able to buy one. "At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year".

As was previously rumored, Nintendo has officially announced the Super Nintendo Classic Edition.

In other words, you better act quick if you want this thing!
