Nintendo Classic Mini: SNES release date confirmed for September 29th

After months of rumours, Nintendo has confirmed that a SNES version of its Nintendo Classic Mini console will be arriving this autumn on September 29th.

Officially titled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the miniature 16-bit system will come with 21 pre-installed games in total, including the never-before-released Star Fox 2.

As with its now sold-out Classic Min: NES predecessor, the Classic Mini: SNES can be plugged into any HDMI slot on your TV for instant retro gaming goodness. An HDMI cable is included in the box, along with a USB cable but NOT an AC power plug. It also comes with two SNES controllers - an improvement over the Classic Mini: NES' single controller offering.

There's no word yet on how much the console will cost or when pre-orders will open, but in the mean time, here's a list of all the included games:

  • 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
