The SNES Mini Classic launches locally on September 29, priced at R1249

2 min read

Last year’s NES Mini Classic console was an absolute 8bit treat that could fit into your hand. Packed with classics, the console was a hit and sold out pretty quickly thanks to nostalgia-mania running wild brother. This year, Nintendo is releasing a pint-sized version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that follows the same formula as its predecessor.

Announced earlier in the year, fans have been waiting for a local release date and pricing. Here it is, according to Raru: September 29, for 1249 of your Randelas. That’s a tad bit pricier than the NES Mini Classic, although you know exactly who to blame for it. As a reminder, here’s the list of games that you’ll find on it when it arrives:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars™Donkey Kong Country™
  • EarthBound™
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO™
  • Kirby™ Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course™
  • The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
  • Mega Man® X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox™
  • Star Fox™ 2
  • Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV™
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
  • Super Mario Kart™
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars™
  • Super Mario World™
  • Super Metroid™
  • Super Punch-Out!!™
  • Yoshi’s Island™

Stock is limited to one per person, and will probably sell out soon enough. Maybe. Or maybe this time Nintendo actually makes a few more of the devices, to help halt the spread of rampant eBay scalping this time.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
