"Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is now planned to ship from September 29 until the end of calendar year 2017". Now, Nintendo has officially taken the wraps off of the SNES Classic console. 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. Prices from the United Kingdom states that the console will set you back £79.99 (~S$124). The SNES (which stands for Super Nintendo Entertainment System ) was known for its strong lineup of games. One game that never saw the light of day however, was Star Fox 2, with its release being cancelled despite the title being completed.
At launch there will be two different versions of the console. Nintendo will be releasing a Super Famicom version of the Classic Edition for the Japanese market for ¥7,980 (~S$99).
