Nintendo’s SNES Classic is now official—Here’s what you need to know

Nintendo on Monday officially unveiled the SNES Classic, confirming a rumor that began circulating earlier this morning. You better start preparing now, because this thing is going to be a very hot commodity when it launches in September.

Many of Nintendo’s classics are accounted for, including Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Punch-Out!!, and F-ZERO. And, surprisingly, the mini console will also include an unreleased sequel to Star Fox, Star Fox 2.

Soon after the NES Classic was introduced last year, many Nintendo fans immediately begged the Japanese company to release a version for the SNES. Now, our dreams have come true. In all, the SNES Classic will feature 21 games and come with two controllers out of the box.

Technical details a still scarce, so we’re not sure how long the controller cables are. And, sadly, they’re still not wireless, which means this is very much an old-school console experience. Now, just in mini form with some of your SNES favorites.

If you’ve never experienced the joys of the Super Nintendo, you’re in for a treat. For how exciting the Nintendo Switch is, the nostalgia factor will no doubt make the SNES Classic one of this year’s most sought after products. Hopefully, Nintendo can keep up with demand, because it’ll likely be even higher than what we saw from the NES Classic last year.

The SNES Classic will launch on September 29 for $79.99.
