SNES Classic Edition Announced... And Includes StarFox 2!


In a move that everyone saw coming, Nintendo has announced the SNES Classic Edition, which is essentially a miniature SNES-looking Plug-N-Play system with twenty one built-in SNES classics as well as TWO SNES controllers - the original NES Classic Edition only included one controller.

What makes this system a sweet deal is what's on the console. Twenty-one games might not seem like a whole lot, but this is truly a matter of quality over quantity and the game selection is top-notch stuff indeed. Not only are you getting the usual Nintendo classics such as Super Mario World/Kart/RPG, Super Metroid, and even Kirby Super Stars, not only are you getting some of the finest third-party offerings such as Contra III, Super Castlevania IV, and Final Fantasy III (VI), but you're also getting the never-before-released StarFox 2.

For those in the emulation and homebrew scene, you might've already played that one... but for many gamers who have never dabbled in that scene, this will be the first time they'd experience the game in any real official capacity. That alone adds value to the SNES Classic Edition, which is looking to be a solid offering indeed.

Let's just hope Nintendo makes more than five copies worldwide.

The SNES Classic Edition hits stores September 29th.
