Mini SNES reportedly in development at NintendoNothing's official, but sources suggest we may see a miniaturized Super Nintendo Entertainment System by late 2017.
The NES Classic is dead, but long live the SNES Classic? I might forgive Nintendo's discontinuing of the NES Classic if this rumor turns out true, you guys. Euro Gamer says anonymous sources close to Nintendo have confirmed a tiny Super Nintendo is already in the works and could be farther along in development than we might think. The little SNES is rumored to hit retail, you guessed it, Just in time for all of us to fight over it like rabid wolves through the holidays, yay. Nintendo wasn't quite prepared for the mania surrounding the NES Classic and experienced shortages and high demand throughout its run. So let's hope they've learned there will be massive demand for this teeny console and make lots more than they did last time. As for games, we're guessing an SNES Mini would have a predetermined set of games on board just like the NES Classic, but who knows what games might end up on there? We'll almost definitely see popular titles like original Mario Kart and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past show up, but I'm personally hoping for semi-forgotten and still excellent games like Super Metroid and Chrono Trigger to make the final list. Regardless of the lineup, i'm sure this is going to be a hot holiday item. If it exists. Nintendo is not saying for now. So, we will just have to cross our fingers and hope they make enough for all of us to get our hands on one if it does end up in production. For more, check out cnet.com. I'm Ashley Esqueda.
