I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    too bad in my country is gonna be sooooo expensive

    i understand the nostalgia of these classic consoles. people will buy these up and scalp them for insane prices.

    Its just over hyped and waste of money when there are PCs, Android devices and a hacked consoles a 3.60 PS Vita or other handheld that can play all these games. you can buy a USB controller that is similar to get the original feel of the controller. waste of money. there are other devices that run these limited games for free.

    While I understand that it’s supposed to be a replica of the original console/controllers but like the nes classic before it I really don’t understand the wired controllers, they at least made the cords longer this time but not having wireless controllers included seems strange to me

    I also was expecting to see Chrono Trigger! But at least we got D3 🙂

    79,99€? Now i know why they are so fu**** much against emulators…
    Damn Big N. Haven’t thought you’d go the cheeky way.
    PS: FIRST!

    • Tony

      It’s slightly cheaper here, $120 AUD which translates to $71 pounds

      • PowerWalks

        AU$120 is what I paid for my original Super Nintendo back in ’93. I guess it came with no games though, and it’s pleasing to note that they seem to have what is to me the three essentials: Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, and StarFox. I think I’ll stick with my PS3 emulating it though. It does the job perfectly. Not as cute perhaps. However, I have an original Super Nintendo in its box in the garage if I ever get too nostalgic!

        • Phoenx

          I would definitely get that out of the garage, so the box doesn’t get damaged. Even without the box the SNES should be worth around 100 AUD, with the box even more, if the box is in good condidtion. Prices for Nintendo stuff went haywire the last few years.

    • Phoenix

      The NES Mini was 79,99€ aswell, and within four months sold at ebay for twice that money, because Nintendo couldn’t deliver enough units.

  6. NeonAera

    Wow, so they are really making it happen. That’s pretty awesome. The SNES is the system I grew up with when I was a kid. Definitely getting one to replay some of my favorite titles and some that were popular back then that I haven’t tried yet. Hyped! I hope I can get a preorder. These games are as legit as you get by Nintendo, games should run full speed and everything working; unlike emulation sometimes there are some issues haha. Emulation is still awesome via hacking in my opinion of course as long as you still own the actual games and etc.

    I really want Fire emblem but i’m from N.A

  8. Byte

    Canada: MSRP $99.99 (Canadian of course). With a little luck the FX rate changes significantly and maybe it’ll be available for 89.99. Let’s hope Nintendo didn’t put in demands for the device to be completely locked-down and we can add Chrono Trigger ourselves.

  9. Dmaskell92

    I already have one of these, It’s called a gaming PC.

    • Aurora

      I doubt ya need a gaming PC for SNES games! I have one of these in a form of a 2003 17″ Al PowerBook G4 which in my opinion, has a better design and can play a lot more SNES games!

      • Poulet

        Hehe, that’s our Aurora, the absolute tech addict.
        Don’t forget our beloved VITA ! Best emulation on the go, by far.

        Currently enjoying Jungle strike, Wiz’n Liz, Landstalker and S3&K…Haaa, I can’t thank you enough Wololo…

        • Tony

          The 3DS is better for emulation on the go actually, if you exclude the fact it can’t play psp/ps1 games.

          • Poulet

            Seriously ?
            I thought 3DS’s GBA emulator was barely running, due to heavy memory costraints.

            And as far as I know, it doesn’t even run DS roms, so long trauma 2. The ‘protective shell’ is the only good thing about this machine if you ask me (and its touch system, more fun than VITA’s).

            In the end, it depends on the user: 3DS is too small for me, even the XL.
            VITA feels more comfy.

          • Tony

            I agree that the vita is more comfortable but GBA games run just fine on the 3DS, not sure about running via emulators but if you install them in the form of .cia files they run without a problem. but for DS roms just use a flashcard or wait for twloader compatability to support loading more roms from the sd card.

        • Tha_Dat

          lol, thats not Aurota, thats The_Zett

      • Dmaskell92

        I just mean in general my PC is a emulation station.
        I currently have:

        And many more running perfectly on one device.

    I’d rather use my Raspberry Pi 3 to play SNES games and more.

    • nebu_187

      I have 5 consoles that can emulate SNES pretty flawlessly but still it isnt the same as a emulation console that is made by nintendo and looks like a SNES that is just the *** right there! 😀

    • djluiluv

      I know right!

  11. swaggie

    Damn shame they’re giving PAL regions Contra 3 and not the far superior Super Probotector: Alien Rebels

  12. nebu_187

    I just want this for nostalgic reasons!

    • nebu_187

      pre-ordered it! hope they didnt make an empty promise because i heard with the nes mini some shops just let people pre-order whitout having a clue how many consoles the will be getting.

  13. ZeroSbr

    I already have access to these games via the Wii Shop Channel, and of course games like SMW and CT have been ported since, and I own those ports. Even if I don’t have one of these games, I can emulate most of them on my PSP (sans Star Fox, perhaps). Why should I get this?

  14. Win7-4lyfe

    So how are they handling the 3-player co-op in Secret of Mana on this…

  15. djluiluv

    Raspberry Pi 3 w/ latest retropie = way better..

  16. ishygdaft

    No one is talking about the UNRELEASED starfox 2 that we were pretty sure wasn’t ever gonna pop up. I mean that’s pretty neato

    • Dmaskell92

      I did some research and the game is actually unfinished. I wonder if they’re getting the original team together to fix up the loose ends?

      I agree that’s the consoles best feature, hopefully someone can rip the rom and post it up somewhere. I would gladly pay for the rom but I don’t think Nintendo will do that. I just can’t see myself buying this console for one game.

      • nightwishfan1

        There’s technically a mastered rom of the game, which would’ve been the fully completed and finished product if it were released, however nintendo pulled the plug on it due to the impending release of the N64. So this is the complete finished game that they put onto this micro console.

        Also on another note…..I’m not a fan of you pushing pc and gpd win stuff here. So the vita isn’t your cup of tea, but you constantly recommending someone to steer clear of it and go for something more pc’esque is some pretty good trolling imo. If you don’t care for vita and it’s games then why bother posting here? Go somewhere else with your gpd win and pc ***.

    Anyone considering this or the Nes classic I have 2 words for you


  18. djluiluv

    For all the Noobz: Star Fox 2′ been out and available on roms sites forever along with F-Zero 2 (also not mentioned in this stupid packages). Do youselves a favor…order a Raspberry Pi3 and a snes case for it (or whatever case you want) and you’ll be *way happier…

    • Kazy

      Those versions are NOT complete. This is known for years. It has been confirmed by the original developer too. YOU are a noob.

  19. koala

    It will probably have an ARM board and a stolen and/or inaccurate emulator. I’d rather wait for a decent FPGA console that can run VeriSNES.
