Nintendo announced Monday that they're re-releasing a version of the mini Nintendo game system that we all know and love. It will feature less games than the original NES Mini, but it does have one small improvement: controller cord length. Nintendo stated, "We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition". This time, the controller cables are a generous 1.5 metres long, so you don't have to sit right next to your TV like with the NES Classic. Nintendo's SNES Classic console will be available in the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia. Many US Nintendo fans already indicated to import the Super Famicom Classic or SNES Mini just to get the better looking design. The Classic Mini line, then, is a smart strategy, assuming Nintendo can make enough of them to avoid angering fans. That console was also preloaded with games that could be played in HD, and turned out to be a pretty nifty little box. The major addition in the new console would be Star Fox 2, the unreleased sequel to the original Star Fox for SNES.

The system comes with 21 pre-installed games, including classics like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid, and F-ZERO. The game is finally getting a release after all these years, so long as players unlock it by beating the original Star Fox game first.

Super NES Classic Edition is now planned to ship from September 29 until the end of calendar year 2017. It was more to do with the fact that it was nearly impossible to get your hands on a unit despite Nintendo's best efforts, leading to massively hiked up prices on third-party websites such as eBay.

As was previously rumored, Nintendo has officially announced the Super Nintendo Classic Edition. Despite being a runaway success, Nintendo quietly pulled the Classic Mini NES from sale previous year.
