Nintendo Gears Up to Launch Mini Version of SNES Console

Nintendo is clearly on to a winning formula here, as the NES Classic proved.

Moreover, Nintendo of America didn't confirm whether this announcement intended the termination of the NES Classic or Famicom Mini worldwide. For this reason, speculations suggest that the discontinued NES Classic Edition will be revitalized as a new gen console sometime in the future. The last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition will end this month.

Folks in Australia have been plying retail outlets to get the Nintendo Mini NES Classic for quite some time now. Fingers crossed Nintendo learns from the mishandling of its 8-bit piece of nostalgic kit and ups the production numbers to the point where, you know, it's possible to walk into a store and see one. However, most may have forgotten that the resurrection of the famed 1986 game console was expected to be done on a limited basis. Hopefully, the SNES mini will contain a great deal more. Rumors claim that the company may have stopped the production to force gamers to turn to the Hybrid Switch Console, Extreme Tech reported. This could include stuff like Activision's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games (which we'd be down to play again in a heartbeat - the classics are still a blast), Capcom's Resident Evil 2, and Natsume's Harvest Moon 64. We're talking Super Metroid, The Secret of Mana, F-Zero, Super Mario World, Super Contra, Pilotwings, Star Fox, and many more. That said, allowing the SNES Mini library to expand via purchased downloads (a la the Virtual Console on other Nintendo consoles) seems like a no-brainer way to provide a continued revenue stream and longer-term interest in the hardware.

The company stated there was never an intention to keep the NES Classic as a permanent product, leaving empty-handed fans to contemplate buying one off a thriving eBay market.
