Nintendo Unveils Super NES Classic Edition With 21 Games

SNES Classic

Coming off the heels of its successful, but never in stock, NES Classic Edition, Nintendo has followed up on that with the Super NES Classic Edition, a new take on the wildly popular SNES home console.

The console will come packed with 21 games, instead of 30 like the NES Classic Edition featured, and will cost $79.99, assuming scalpers don’t get a hold of it first.

“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”

The console has the exact same look as the SNES but will just come in a smaller package.

Here are the 21 games that will be included with the console:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • 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
  • Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • Yoshi’s Island

The console will come with an HDMI cord, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers. The Super NES Classic Edition features many multiplayer titles such as Super Mario Kart and Street Fighter II, so an additional controller will come in handy.

The Super NES Classic Edition will launch September 29.
