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.

Interestingly enough, the rumours emerge just after Nintendo confirmed that the NES Mini has been discontinued due to production issues.
