Now you are playing with SUPER POWER! Nintendo announces The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition.
It can easily be said that pretty much everyone thought that when Nintendo released the NES Classic last year November, it was share genius. A mini Nintendo Entertainment System loaded with a number of their classic 8-bit games in the palm of our hands, literally. Again, genius. Then, in Nintendo like fashion, the NES Classic was discontinued even though the demand for the system was at a fever pitch.
Well folks, prepare to again be mind blown as Nintendo today announced that they will be giving us the Super NES Classic.
“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it. With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”
– Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing
