UPDATED: SNES mini on the way?

June 26th, 2017 by Marc Comments


A mini version of the Super Nintendo (SNES) is in the works.

That’s according to an article on Den of Geek which claims that Destructoid writer Jonathan Holmes spoke to several anonymous store owners recently were they all claimed to have attended a “behind closed doors event” held by Nintendo.

It was at this event it was confirmed that the SNES Classic is in the works and that it could be out by this coming Christmas.

The news comes after the NES Classic Mini went on sale last year and sold out within days before being discontinued. Copies are currently being sold on eBay and other retail stores for astronomical prices.

It will be interesting to see if the SNES truly is coming and if Nintendo will produce enough to satisfy demand.


Nintendo has confirmed the above news.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System will launch in the UK on 29 September.

The microconsole will again launch with 21 games pre-loaded onto the system – including the never-released Starfox 2. Classics such as Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, F-Zero and Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past are also included.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
