Nintendo reportedly releasing mini SNES for the holidays

Nintendo reportedly releasing mini SNES for the holidays

This is despite the fact that the recent price of NES Classic Edition is nearly six times the suggested retail price of $60 (almost at a part with today's new gen consoles).

"Nintendo will follow its NES microconsole with a mini version of the SNES", sources told the company at EuroGamer.

If Nintendo does intend to launch another super retro console, then hopefully, this time, they have enough stocks to meet consumer demand, so as to avoid the shortage that happened with the Nintendo NES Classic Mini console.

Nintendo's plans to launch the SNES mini is a reason for the company's decision to cut production on the NES mini, according to Eurogamer. Which probably means that the SNES Classic Mini, if that's what it ends up being called, will be harder to find than its NES counterpart.

Boxes of the Nintendo 64 video game system sit on the shelves October 26, 2000 at a Toys R Us store in El Paso, Texas. Market it as the Ultimate Nintendo History Arcade or something, and put all your classic systems in one place. Not at all. More so, considering Nintendo's sloth-like approach to adding games to it.

NES Classic Edition, meantime, is rumored to make a comeback during the holiday season.

But a new development within Nintendo has possibly answered our question as to WHY the company chose to end its production in the first place - and it's pretty exciting.

The palm-sized NES console, retailing for $59.99 list price, features the classic Nintendo NES controller many geeks have grown up with. Among the popular game titles tied up to it include "Super Mario World", "Yoshi's Island" and "Super Metroid". This ensures that the NES Mini and SNES Mini don't take the spotlight away from the company's priority, which is the Nintendo Switch. These are really the games that I grew up with, and I'd be most excited to have these on tap to play.
