SNES Mini Reportedly in the Works

Rumored to be launching this holiday season.

NES Classic Edition may be no more, but it seems that won’t be the end of Nintendo’s miniature hardware line; Eurogamer is reporting that a mini version of the company’s second home console, Super NES, is also in the works.

According to Eurogamer, the miniature SNES is slated to launch in time for the holidays and was a major factor in the NES Classic’s discontinuation. The latter was only intended to be a limited-time product and was always going to be supplanted by a replica SNES; however, demand for the console exceeded Nintendo’s expectations and spurred the company to increase its shipments. The “SNES Classic” will reportedly maintain the same plug-and-play setup as its predecessor and will come preloaded with an array of classic SNES titles.

Of course, these are strictly rumors at this time and should be taken as such, but given the success of the NES Classic — and Eurogamer’s reputation — it seems likely we’ll see some sort of SNES Classic advertised for this holiday season. Here’s hoping it’ll be easier to find than its predecessor.

    SNES is probably my second favorite console of all-time right behind DS and GameCube, so I’d be thrilled to see this thing become a reality. Here’s some games I’d love to see (I’m going to ignore obvious ones like A Link to the Past and Super Mario World):

    -Turtles in Time
    -Mega Man X
    -Chrono Trigger
    -Batman Returns
    -X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse
    -Final Fight
    -Star Fox
    -Yoshi’s Island
    -Tetris Attack

    What’s everyone else hoping for?
