The Super NES Classic Edition, aka SNES Classic has been revealed and for those of you who were worried there would be shortages, worry not for Kotaku has got the following statement from the Big N:
“We aren’t providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.
Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is currently planned to ship from Sept. 29 until the end of calendar year 2017. At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year.
Our long-term efforts are focused on delivering great games for the Nintendo Switch system and continuing to build momentum for that platform, as well as serving the more than 63 million owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems. We are offering Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition in special recognition of the fans who show tremendous interest our classic content.”
So we can all breathe a sigh of relief as more are coming, but not for too long as there will be plenty of scalpers looking to secure as many units as they can before selling them on for a higher price. But hey, instead of focusing on that, how about we focus on this tidbit instead. Unlike the controllers for the NES Mini/Classic, which supported a cord that was only 3 feet long, the controllers for the SNES Classic have a 5 foot long cord instead. I guess they did listen to some of the comments owners of the NES Mini after all!
Annoyingly though, if you are hoping to buy one in Europe, just know history has struck again as the European version does not come with an AC Adapter (NES Mini didn’t either).
While this does conclude all of the latest SNES Classic news, do stay tuned for more as the SNES Classic will be something of this week’s big story and more details are expected to come to light over the next few days and when it does, we’ll be sure to write all about it!
