Super NES Classic Edition Set To Launch With Star Fox 2 On Sept 29th
(Last Updated On: June 26, 2017)

Oh, boy, Nintendo has stirred up a lot of love and hate at the same time with the announcement of the Super NES Classic Edition. The retro yet new console will debut with the never before released title Star Fox 2, along with 20 other classic games. The Super NES Classic Edition is set to be available for $79.99 come September 29th.

As of right now there are people calling Nintendo cheap for selling “shovel-ware” for $79.99, while there are other people in awe that they will finally have a chance to buy the Super NES Classic Edition that comes pre-loaded with Star Fox 2 — a game that was never released to the public.

The announcement of the Super NES Classic Edition has also sparked some fans to be in disappointment in that other classic games like Chrono Trigger, Mega Man X 2, Secret of Evermore, and other games did not make the cut but Kirby titles instead made the list.

In addition to the love and hate, people are saying that this promotes other Nintendo fans to buy up a mass amount of the Super NES Classic Edition units to re-sell them at a higher price, while others see this as an opportunity to finally play the system and the games in real life for the first time. However you may feel about the current situation, Nintendo hopes to bring the Super NES Classic Edition to the market along with the following games:

  • Super Mario World
  • F-Zero
  • Super Mario Kart
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Super Metroid
  • Street Fighter II Turbo
  • Super Punch-Out
  • Castlevania IV
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Mega Man X
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • Star Fox
  • Yoshi’s Island
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Contra III
  • Secret of Mana
  • EarthBound
  • Super Ghouls ‘N’ Ghosts
  • Star Fox 2

Lastly, an HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with an AC adapter, and two wired Super NES Classic controllers are included with the Super NES Classic Edition. The console will be available for $79.99 when September 29th rolls around.

  • No Mario is Missing? Tisk. Tisk.

    DAIM SON… lucky that I asked a good buddy at our local electric entertainment center to hold one back for me once this comes out. Those games… and STARFOX 2? I only hope that Nintendo does not put NTSC games on the pal version, because this would make them like “games on speed”… unplayable. But I bet that someone will hack it again and make a tool to modify it.

    I can’t wait =)

  • Mr Snow

    Secret of Mana, and two controller ports…

    Shove it, Nintendo.

  • Pratim Gupta

    you can emulate these games and besides you can get a real SNES for less price. overpriced piece of shits

  • ItEotWaWKI

    $80 and it doesn’t even include Donkey Kong Country 2, DKC3, and Kirby’s Dream Land 3. Shame… guess I’ll continue to stick with my still functioning SNES system and carts.


    Coming soon: SNES Classic Special Edition $129.99 (Pre-Yellowed so you don’t have to do it yourself.)

    • The Super Limited Ultra Edition features a “flea market scent.”

    >only the first Donkey Kong Country title available on it

    • What are you talking about? That was the only good one. The other ones were pure trash.

  • John27

    Or you can just get a Raspberry Pi 3 now for less money and have all the SNES games. I’ve even set them up remotely for a few long-distance friends who were sick of trying to find a NES classic.

  • ThyPancakeConsumed

    Inbound shortages like in soviet union during cold war.

  • Bitterbear

    And they added the shittiest of the Kirby games..

    • ItEotWaWKI

      I’m going to have to assume you mean Dream Course, and only Dream Course… ’cause 20+ years later Super Star is still the best one.

      • Bitterbear

        Yep. Dream Course is an awful game, it’s a Nintendo-Hard kind of game that requires perfection at pretty much every level.

        • ItEotWaWKI

          I wouldn’t know, I never played it. I do find your description rather amusing though as “hard” is one of the last terms I’d use to describe a standard Kriby title. Sounds almost as if they went against what seems to be part of the design philosophy of Kirby.

          • Bitterbear

            I did. It’s a mix of puzzle and mini golfing, and each course has a limited set of moves for Kirby. On top of that you only have three lives and you’re limited to 2 continues. After that you have to start all over.

    • Galbador

      Don’t worry. I bet that you will be able to mod the little bastard like the NES Classic 😉

  • tajlund

    It’s nice to see that they put Super Mario RPG on here. I remember that took longer for the emulation scene to get working because it used a different chip.

    The fact that it will have an unreleased game will make this even more impossible to find than the NES mini.



    Too cynical?

    • Too cynical?

      No… no. I would say that’s about right.

  • I see that the Super NES Classic Edition is just about the right size for Amiibofags to insert up into their rectums every night before they go to sleep.

    • Nintendo will be releasing a Mario themed condom and scented lube to help with the process.

  • jlnod15

    Kirby? That makes me happy. But ya Chrono trigger would of been nice too

    • totenglocke

      Don’t worry, you’ll never find one available to purchase anyways.

      • Galbador

        Gonna catch them all… and sell them on Ebay for $$$$

    • Super Double Dragon or nothing.

      • Always remember charging the meter with the shoulder buttons to do the spinning hurricane kick. The game was a good laugh in 2-player mode.
