Super Nintendo Classic Announced

Nintendo announced the Super Nintendo Classic Edition.

Similar to the recent Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition, the SNES version features a scaled down console, HDMI output, and a number of titles pre-loaded.

“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 is scheduled to release on September 29 for $79.99.
