SNES Mini Coming This Holiday Season

Though, if the report is true, you'll have to wait until the holidays.

This upcoming SNES Mini is also the reason for the discontinuation of the hackable NES Classic console, according to the report, along with ongoing production problems and stock shortages.

Nintendo last week sent shockwaves through the gaming industry after announcing that it was discontinuing the NES Classic Edition despite widespread demand.

Nintendo released a classic NES in Christmas 2016, bundling 30 games into a diminutive version of its classic console, which was powered using a USB cable and could connect to any display using HDMI. The system is already under development, and could be ready for this holiday season.

Until the SNES is officially revealed, we won't know which games will come bundled in the box. So hopefully the Mini SNES will offer up the superior American versions of the games instead. And just like it demonstrated during its launch, the NES Classic Edition only lasted for a brief period of time.

For a novelty and collectible status item, the NES Mini did incredibly well, and Nintendo itself confirmed as much that it never was meant to be a permanent product.

The SNES boasted unbelievable games including Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, Super Metroid, Super Mario RPG, Yoshi's Island, and Donkey Kong Country.

That's right-the company is following up its popular NES Mini with a SNES Mini. At the time, many people wondered why Nintendo would discontinue such a successful, in-demand product but it turns out, it may be due to a replacement coming.

As far as games go, I imagine Zelda, Donkey Kong, Mario, Final Fantasy IV, and Kirby will be among the titles.

While for now this is merely speculation, Eurogamer has an nearly spotless record as fas as Nintendo rumors go.
