Nintendo's NES Classic mini-console exploded onto the market last year, and Nintendo's decision to discontinue the console despite the high demand broke some gamers' hearts.
But that heartbreak might not last long. Nintendo is reportedly planning to release a similarly miniaturized version of the Super Nintendo console before Christmas 2017, Eurogamer reports. The official name will be the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Development for the mini-console is reportedly already underway.
The plans for the mini SNES were a key reason behind Nintendo's discontinuation of the NES Classic despite huge demand. Nintendo reportedly planned to make the console a holiday novelty and underestimated its popularity.
If this console is real, gamers will have no shortage of classic games to pick from. Here's a sample:
- Super Mario World
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Metroid
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Star Fox
- Chrono Trigger
- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
- Mortal Kombat
- Final Fantasy VI
- Mega Man X
The mini SNES will likely follow the NES Classic's setup, meaning the games will be preloaded onto a console with an HDMI connection.
Nintendo declined Eurogamer's request for comment.
