Nintendo plans to follow the success of its NES Classic Edition mini game console with the release of a miniature version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in time for this year's holiday-shopping season, Eurogamer reported Wednesday.

This comes after Nintendo announced this week that it will no longer make the NES mini console, which became a hard-to-find item when it was released late last year. CNET's Scott Stein called the mini NES console "your childhood in a brilliant little box." The all-in-one console came with 30 classic NES games, including Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda.

The original NES system, an 8-bit console, was launched in the 1980s. The original Super Nintendo, a 16-bit console, came out in the early 1990s.

Nintendo did not immediately return a request for comment.
