— More than 25 years after the Super Nintendo Entertainment System hit store shelves and five months after Nintendo stopped production on its revamped NES Classic Edition, the Super NES will be back in stores in a mini version on Sept. 29.
Nintendo unveiled the console in June.
The Super NES Classic Edition will come with 21 classic games installed, including Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy III and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. A never before released sequel to Super NES classic Star Fox will also be released with the console.
Super NES Classic Editions will be sold at a suggested retail price of $79.99, according to Nintendo.
“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, said in a news release announcing the console. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”
The Super NES Classic Edition will have the same look and feel as the original, according to Nintendo, only smaller.
