Nintendo Just Announced The SNES Classic, Complete With 21 Throwback Games

Super Nintendo was my very first video game system. I can’t tell you how many hours I spent playing Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, and Star Fox with my dad and siblings.

Nintendo’s NES classic was such a smash hit that they’re evolving from the 8-bit throwback to the 16-bit younger brother. Like the NES Classic, the Super Nintendo comes loaded with Star Fox and 20 more games, including the following:

  • 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

Never needed something more. Drops on Sept. 29 at a retail price of $79.99 and you can buy it direct from Nintendo.
