Expect more Super NES Classic units than with NES Mini

The $80 system comes with two controllers this time, compared to the NES Classic, which only came with one.

"Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is now planned to ship from September 29 until the end of calendar year 2017". The console will cost $79 in U.S., and £79.99 in the UK. The marketing ploy was supposedly meant to drum up publicity for the Japanese company, which launched its flagship new console, the Nintendo Switch, earlier this year. The SNES (which stands for Super Nintendo Entertainment System ) was known for its strong lineup of games.

In terms of design, the Super NES Classic Edition features the original look and feel of the '90s home console. The retro console will come bundled with the never-before-released Star Fox 2 game as well.

This time round though, there will be several cosmetic differences to the console, depending on where you buy it from. Like the original SNES, the European and Japanese markets will get a mini version of Super Nintendo and Super Famicom.

"We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition", a Nintendo spokesperson said.

Nintendo announced the Super Nintendo Classic Edition for the U.S. and the Super Nintendo Mini Edition for Europe on Monday. The console, which was priced at $60 (or approx Rs. 3867), sold out instantly at almost every major retailer where it was made available, especially in the US.

Aside from Star Fox 2, we've also got: Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, A Link to the Past, F-Zero, Super Metroid, Street Fighter II, Super Punch-Out, Super Castlevania IV, Donkey Kong Country, Mega Man X, Kirby Super Star, Final Fantasy III, Kirby's Dream Course, Star Fox, Yoshi's Island, Super Mario RPG, Contra III: The Alien Wars, Secret of Mana, Earthbound and Super Ghouls and Ghosts.

Sega, whose Megadrive console competed fiercely with the SNES in the Nineties, recently said it would re-release a huge library of games as part of a Netflix-style scheme. However, the company discontinued the console in April of this year, just months after its release.
