The year 2017 is the year of retro gaming. Last week, Sega released the Sega Forever app on iOS and Android devices. Now, it is Nintendo’s turn to whet the appetite of retro gamers across the globe. The company has just announced the it will release the SNES Classic console in mini version and it is coming this year too.
According to Nintendo’s Twitter page, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System or SNES Classic will be released on the 29th of September. Furthermore, the miniturized retro gaming console will have 21 old games including the never-before released Star Fox 2.
Unfortunately, unlike the previously discontinued mini NES Classic, the SNES Classic version will be a bit pricier. Selling at $80 a pop, nostalgic gamers can once again relive the days of Super Mario World and Yoshi’s Island in their living rooms.
