Nintendo May Release an SNES Classic Edition This Year

While third-party adapters have filled in this hole on the Nintendo Classic Mini NES, an official adapter would show that Nintendo cares about its old controllers. However, SNES mini brings better software line-up and their own version of popular games from NES Classic edition according to Polygon.

Putting out a SNES Classic seems like an obvious move, if only because numerous company's most iconic titles were released on the console. Most have run out of stock for quite some time and chances of seeing them re-stocked could be low.

Eurogamer's report this morning that Nintendo is working on an "SNES Mini" plug-and-play console in the style of the Classic Mini NES (according to "sources close to the company") isn't too surprising.

Meanwhile, eBay and other online resellers are the only hope of the consumers who wanted to have the Nintendo NES Classic Edition. And this time around, the Japanese company may want to factor in some numbers and produce larger volumes of the game console to avoid supply shortages.

Nintendo's NES Mini proved an unexpected success for the company previous year.

In all likelihood, the SNES Mini will likely be almost identical to the miniature NES that came before it.

Some of these old favourite game titles could return plus more for the SNES Classic Edition. Not at all. More so, considering Nintendo's sloth-like approach to adding games to it. The Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition did come out with 30 games that included "Donkey Kong", "Legend of Zelda" and "Super Mario Bros".

NBA Jam and Super Bomberman are two that instantly jump to mind - and are the two games that could even get me to buy a SNES Mini multi-tap, if such a hallowed object gets willed into existence by Nintendo. Interestingly enough, the rumours emerge just after Nintendo confirmed that the NES Mini has been discontinued due to production issues.
