Retro Gamers: SNES Mini On Sale in September!

Nintendo will release the SNES Mini Classics on September 30.

Following the success of the NES Classic, Nintendo have announced the sale of the Super Nintendo Mini. It’ll be on sale September 30.

The Super Nintendo was one of the most successful consoles of the 1990s. It gifted us classic games such as Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, Mega Man X (the best IMO) and who could forget, Super Mario Kart!

And for any retro collectors who already have the games listed below, Nintendo are including the previously unreleased Star Fox 2, which can only be accessed once you complete Star Fox 1.

In even better news, Nintendo have responded to criticism about the lack of dual controllers for the NES Classic, with… dual controllers, obviously…

Retailing for $119.99 dollarydoos here in Australia, the console will launch with the following 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™
  • 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™

You can already pre-order the SNES classic from most gaming retailers now, so get in quick! The package contains all 21 games listed above pre-installed and an HDMI cable. Also, don’t forget to buy a USB AC adapter, available for purchase also on September 30.

This is great news for Nintendo fans, who are still buzzing from the other Mario news from E3 earlier this month.

A 1990s Classic, but get in Quick!

The Super Nintendo was the first console I ever owned as a kid (I also had a hand-me-down Commodore 64 that I could never quite get to to work properly). It’s the console that really hooked me into gaming as a kid and I’m a little bit giddy that this package is going to be released.

Nintendo have promised to make more of these than the NES Classic Mini, which infamously sold out really quick, but I think the sooner you get your pre-order in the better.

What a time to be alive!
