A Happy Michael with his NES Classic Mini πŸ˜€


The SNES Classic Mini is officially rumoured to be getting a release…That’s officially rumoured, which means it’s a rumour, but now with a tiny bit of credibility πŸ˜€

Ever since the NES Classic Mini was announced then released, Nintendo lovers, including myself thought about a world with a re-release of a Super Nintendo. There were rumours back then, but they were more hopes and dreams rather than a ‘concrete rumour’.

If you hadn’t already heard, the NES Mini Classic has now been discontinued. If you didn’t get one, you weren’t the only one, as they’ve been super rare, and you’ve more or less never been able to walk into a shop and buy one, the stock has been that low. It’s left people who didn’t get one pretty miserable, and shops which buy and sell used gaming consoles and games which usually rip off the people they buy from are actually offering almost 3x the RRP of the NES Classic Mini, some offering as much as Β£125 for the tiny machine which had an original price of Β£50.

You can see above that I got mine, I guess by luck. I didn’t pre-order, and waited weeks to get one, checking out various sites and shops before Amazon finally opened pre-orders again after it was released. I didn’t think I’d get it to be honest, but low and behold I did, and it’s brilliant πŸ™‚

The reason for not originally pre-ordering was I thought it was going to be quite a geeky niche item, with a few of the hardcore reliving their youth, and plenty of chances to get one…I was so wrong! If the SNES Mini does materialise I will definitely be pre-ordering! And yes, I know you can get emulators and things like that, in fact I’ve already got a JXD to play old games, and it’s good, but you can’t beat authenticity!

The rumour, which I must say is still only a rumour, has been credited to Eurogamer, who’ve suggested that it could come in time for Christmas this year and is already in development.

Games For The Snes Mini

Which games would you like to see on the Snes Mini? I think that a few of my favourite ever Super Nintendo Games have been:

  • Super Mario World
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Legend Of Zelda
  • Donkey Kong
  • F-Zero
  • Street Fighter II
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • Super Mario All Stars
  • Mortal Kombat
  • Sensible Soccer (I know, not really a SNES Classic but a favourite of mine)
  • Pilotwings
  • Final Fight (I know it’s more of an arcade/Neo Geo title)
  • Smash TV
  • Starwing

There’s probably lots more I’ve missed, and lots which I missed out on first time round which I’d be able to play.
