Today, Nintendo has announced the release of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition, and it sounds dope as hell. Alongside that announcement was a list of 21 games that will be available for it as well, including the never-before-released Star Fox 2. No word as to how long you will have to stand in line for this baby, but it has been slated to release on September 29th of this year.
Here is what Nintendo has to say on their official site:
“The golden age of 16-bit gaming returns.
Yoshi, Samus, and the Star Fox crew are waiting for you to come and play.
The Super NES Classic Edition system has the original look and feel of the ’90s home console, only smaller. Plus, this one comes fully loaded with 21 games!
Two wired retro Super NES™ Classic Controllers are included for multiplayer gaming right out of the box.
Get your hands on some of the best 2-player games of the era, including Super Mario Kart and Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting.
