After months of rumors following the wildly successful mini-NES, Nintendo finally confirmed the existence of the Mini-Super NES. And it’s coming sooner than you might think: September 29th.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System includes 21 pre-installed classic games (listed below) and can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable. And for the first time, players can finally enjoy Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox (originally titled Starwing upon release in Europe) game. Star Fox 2 has never been released until now.
Here’s a handy list of the 21 games included:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
- Donkey Kong Country
- Final Fantasy III
- 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
All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them in particular – Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans who have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 will offer them something entirely new to enjoy (players must prove their skill by completing the first level of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).
The package includes are one HDMI cable, one USB power cable and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers in order to let players dive into multiplayer action with Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III: The Alien Wars and Secret of Mana.
