Nintendo reveals classic SNES console

Super Mario World, Starfox and Yoshi’s Island may re-released later this year as part of a new classic SNES console.


The original Super Nintendo System was launched in 1990 and 50m units were sold. The SNES Classic follows the NES Classic, which hit the market last year but was discontinued in April causing fans frustration. Nintendo claims limited resources were to blame and it would not make the same error with the SNES.  


Reported: a Nintendo Spokesperson said” Nintendo said “ we are not providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.” The company did not confirm when they are planning to make the SNES Classic. However the Super Nintendo Entertainment System added that, “the Super NES Classic Edition is currently planned to ship from Sept.29th until the end of year 2017.” 


Also it is reported that the company will deliver great games for the Nintendo Switch system and continuing to build momentum for that platform, as well as serving the more than 63m owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems.  Other firms are also looking to gain advantage from the past gaming success.


Report said that Sega would re-release a huge library of games as part of a Netflix- style scheme.
