Today Nintendo announced the Super Nintendo Classic, the follow up to last years NES Classic mega-hit you couldn't actually buy in stores due to it's crazy popularity. The Super Nintendo Classic will retail for $79.99 and feature 21 classic games such as Contra III, Donkey Kong Country, Earthbound, Final Fantasy VI, F-Zero, Kirby Super Star, Kirby's Dream Course, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Mega Man X, Secret of Mana, Star Fox, Star Fox 2 (previously unreleased), Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Castlevania IV, Super Ghouls & Ghosts, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario RPG, Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Super Punch-Out & Yoshi's Island.

This line-up is incredible and made even better with the inclusion of the never before released Star Fox 2. Nintendo has tried to clarify that they understand there were supply issues with the NES Classic and are looking to address that by saying:

"We aren't providing specific numbers but we will significantly more units of the Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition."

I'd certainly love to open one of these under my Christmas tree this year and will immediately buy one if I can get the chance to but i'm not counting on being able to find one reasonably. With the included lineup and ultra low price I think this will be more popular than the NES Classic and be even harder to find because Nintendo won't continue to make them after 2017.

Man, we've been on the same page lately. I was thinking about posting something about this, since I just read about it. It seems there are some really good SNES games getting left out such as FFII and Chrono Trigger. I still kind of wish I was able to get a NES Classic. I'd like to get this one, too. I saw something that said a N64 Classic could be next.

The N64 Classic would be a logical step but it's all speculation at this point. I hope they do.

If they keep this up we should get the Switch Classic in 2022!

I did get the NES Classic for Christmas, and honestly, it was fun for a couple weeks, then I forgot about it. The SNES Classic game line up is super tempting though... but I'll probably pass on getting this one.

I am ready to adopt this system you have to give it a loving home. I have other classic systems it will be able to play with and I imagine they will have adventures Toy Story style when I am not looking.
