Rumors are circulating today about Nintendo launching a SNES Classic this Christmas in the same spirit as the NES Classic reboot that was so popular it was later cancelled before I could buy one. It's a great idea and something Nintendo should do but... you know... if we can get one. Hopefully Nintendo will be able to meet demand but if they don't and I don't really hold out hope for that, it should be another strange disappointment ride with a very abrupt end.

Because you know, that's how Nintendo rolls sometimes. The SNES Classic is rumored to launch sometime around Christmas and I am interested in hearing what you think about the prospect?

I feel that this one might even be harder to get than the NES Classic, if that is even possible. If everybody is expecting another NES classic, people will be scooping up multiple units of these just to sell them at a high price.

Yeah, that's my thought too.

I hope Nintendo approaches this with a longer lifespan in mind. I would love to see it be upgradeable with new games. And if they can get a lot of the 3rd parties that supported SNES to release their games, that would be awesome too!

Oh god, my emotions can't handle this again.

I'd like to see this happen, but I'm unhappy that Nintendo's discontinuing the NES Classic, I kind of want one.

Honestly, what I always wanted more than an NES Classic was an SNES Classic. Please do this one right, Nintendo!

Just as long as they actually produce enough units this time, I am on board!
