Nintendo Announces SNES Classic Edition, Including The Never-Released Star Fox 2 [Updated: Nintendo Promises More Shipments]

You probably still won't be able to get one.

UPDATE: Nintendo promised to Kotaku that there will be far more units in stock this time around. "We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition." They would not confirm whether it will continue beyond 2017.

Nintendo of America has revealed the follow-up to the crazy popular NES Classic with an equally lengthy official name, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition. The mini-console will include 21 titles, with the unreleased Starfox 2 being a very surprising addition. The SNES Classic is launching September 29, 2017, with a retail price of $79.99.

The retail package will come with the system, one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter, and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers.

"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," said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "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 full list of titles on the system includes

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars™
  • Donkey Kong Country™
  • EarthBound™
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO™
  • Kirby™ Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course™
  • The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
  • Mega Man® X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox™
  • Star Fox™ 2
  • Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV™
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
  • Super Mario Kart™
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars™
  • Super Mario World™
  • Super Metroid™
  • Super Punch-Out!! ™
  • Yoshi’s Island™

The SNES Classic was first leaked back in April by Eurogamer, with a release date set for this holiday season. The report came in the wake of the NES Classic officially being discontinued.

If it's anything like the NES Classic, shortages should be rampant, so get ready to stand in line.
