Nintendo reportedly releasing mini SNES for the holidays

Nintendo reportedly releasing mini SNES for the holidays

However, should the naming conventions remain consistent with its predecessor, then it might be called the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition.

Personally, there's a lot more things I'd like to play on the SNES rather than the NES, so when it does come out I'm hoping to get a lot more mileage out of it than I did the NES, where I ended up just playing Kirby and nothing much else.

This is despite the fact that the recent price of NES Classic Edition is nearly six times the suggested retail price of $60 (almost at a part with today's new gen consoles). Hopefully Nintendo will be able to keep up with demand this time around.

One possible reason why: The company may be looking to replace it with an SNES Classic.

To avoid further shortcomings, albeit minor ones, Nintendo need to make the cables longer on the controllers, they were simply far too short, also a higher volume games ready for launch would be very welcome. Not at all. More so, considering Nintendo's sloth-like approach to adding games to it. This news was shortly followed by a report which claimed the company was pivoting to develop an SNES Mini. Of course, we don't know which games Nintendo will choose to release with their new console, but we have all the faith in the gaming legends. In fact, the report furthered that development of this retro console in ongoing.

That a small, throwback SNES would be in the works has been suggested by fans and observers since the NES Classic proved such a hit in 2016. Fueled by the popularity of titles like Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Country, and others, it went on to sell 49 million systems worldwide.

The power of nostalgia means styling distinct "mini" boxes after distinct classic Nintendo consoles is a powerful marketing move.

However, it seems like Nintendo has something else under their sleeves.
