Eurogamer have stated that their sources close to Nintendo have confirmed that the Big N will follow up the NES Classic Mini with a micro version of the original NES’ successor, the Super Nintendo. The SNES Classic Mini is currently scheduled for release over the Holiday Season of this year and development is well underway according to sources.
After the news of the NES Classic Mini being discontinued last week, it would make sense that the real reason behind it was for Nintendo to put focus on the production of the SNES Classic even though the NES Classic Mini is still quite a popular and sought out item. The success of the NES Classic Mini last year sold millions of units and it likely that Nintendo hopes a repeat success this year by releasing the SNES Mini in time for Christmas.
There are a number of ways that Nintendo can secure success, providing a larger library of games on the Plug & Play system will definitely help sales along with the option to play SNES Carts or more via even via Virtual Console by transferring from the Wii, Wii U or 3DS. Also, if last year’s sales are anything to go by, having more units available will definitely increase the profit margin.
We really hope this turns out to be true. It will be a great novelty item to follow up the NES Classic Mini and build up a collection of Nintendo Micro Consoles. What games would you like to see come to the SNES Classic Mini? Obviously Super Mario World, The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past & Super Metroid are a given but what other titles do you think should come to it? Let us know in the comments below.

Here we go again, but hopefully, for the last time as Eurogamer is on hand to back up reports and set the record straight.
Since Breath of the Wild was first revealed, rumours, reports and news have dominated most Nintendo news sites and in the last couple of months, most of the articles those sites produced pertaining to the new Zelda title, consisted of the same thing, it’s release. We went from a March release, to a June release and now we’re back to a March release, but not for Europe. In no time at all, it became a mucky affair with no one knowing exactly what is true and what isn’t, but things started to change this week.
