If Nintendo does release this system, we'll hopefully see titles like Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy III, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and many more. A report on Eurogamer claims Nintendo is planning to give the SNES the Mini treatment for release this year. We got this signal a year ago with the NES, and now we're receiving it again with the upcoming SNES.
One of the most sought-after gaming items from past year was Nintendo's NES Classic Edition. We're hoping that this system sticks around for good, but we still recommend staying vigilant so you can order one the second they go on sale.
"We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product".
While there's an undeniable novelty to having a NES or Mega Drive in your living room next to an HDTV and set top box, why lock out consumers from even more games? Indeed, the console has been sold out pretty much everywhere since launch, and it's odd that a company would discontinue something that's in such high demand.
Second, the SNES Classic needs to have a longer production schedule than the holiday season. If it does, I suspect no one will pause for thought before pre-ordering one just in case Nintendo makes the same production mistakes all over again.
Nintendo will stop selling their beloved retro system.
"The timing was very, very clever to help the Switch fly off the shelves", Toto said. It is, in many ways, regarded as Nintendo's golden era of gaming. The Wii turned into a massive hit, but it was a hit because it expanded into a new audience of people who could play games simply by swinging their arms around.
