Nintendo of America has announced a new mini-console that will surely evoke all of the nostalgia you can muster. In my mind, Chrono Trigger is the essential SNES game, and the best representative of Square Enix's 16-bit RPGs. But then again, Nintendo didn't seem to care much about money when they chose to terminate the production of the NES Classic Edition. And the ones that were just listed aren't even the only ones, so you can expect a bunch of others when the SNES Classic actually comes out.
The system released in the United Kingdom will look just like the original that was on sale in Europe - with the blue, red green and yellow buttons opposed to the purple that was standard on the consoles in America. Nintendo has confirmed the existence of the SNES Classic.
In late 2016, Nintendo launched a $60 video game console that looked nearly exactly like the original Nintendo Entertainment System. The original "Super Nintendo" console hit North American stores in 1991. It's my personal favorite.
The real kicker will be the inclusion of the unreleased sequel to the original Star Fox. It's a victory for games preservation. We can dream. What has us very interested is we'll finally be able to play Star Fox 2.
The announcement was made early today via Nintendo's officialTwitterr accounts. "The '90s called; they want their controllers back". The NES Classic Edition offered 30 games for $60, which was a tolerable asking price despite being a little on the expensive side. As last time there will be no USB power adapter in the box, but if you don't have plenty of those laying around Nintendo will sell you one for $20. But one big one that's lingered with a lot of people is, "Can we have longer controller cables?" Look forward to the Nintendo 64 Classic in 2018.
Playing Super Mario came to an end for me when I got into the world of Barbies, but I'd be lying if I said I don't get nostalgic thinking of those simple days. Let us know by telling us in the comment section below or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
