Nintendo announces the SNES Classic Edition out this September with Star Fox 2

Nintendo has announced that the Super Nintendo Classic Edition / Mini will be released in America and Europe on September 29th. The system is $20 US more, but it does come with a second controller, shouldn’t have to worry about finding those at least.

We’ll have Australian details as soon as possible. Nintendo Australia have confirmed the local price will be $119.95 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition and the Nintendo USB AC Adapter, will be priced at $19.95. You won’t get the power adapter in the box, so be sure to plan accordingly.


The system will include 21 games including Earthbound, Yoshi’s Island, Donkey Kong Country and for the first time ever released, Star Fox 2. You’ll have to play through and complete the first level in Star Fox in order to unlock it.

It’s a pretty great list of titles, including some Super FX games that have had emulation hold-ups in the past.

  • 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

    Really solid line up and an unreleased game? It sounds great, but it also sounds like it’s going to sell out at the drop of a hat.

    Wait, Contra 3? Not Super Probotector????? I know they are the same… but Ive always liked the robot side of the European release better.

    And that name… “Probotector”. Ahhhh!

    MegaManX is worth the whole purchase for this!!!

    Tried to find an original copy in box for sale in the past, either rare as, or stupidly expensive!!!

    How can they fit Secret Of Mana on that??? Also how do I transfer my game onto it???

    Protip: when Nintendo say it’s limited edition, they actually mean it, so pre-order to avoid rage at Xmas lol

    The only thing that would have made this even better would have been a translation of Secret of Mana 3 as well =(

    Oh if it only had Super Mario Allstars! Would have been an instant preorder with that lineup.
