Nintendo Said To Be Eyeing Mini-NES Follow-Up

  • In 1985 those bikes were exciting

For reference, the NES Classic Edition was launched on November 10, 2016 and it arrived pre-installed with 30 retro games from Nintendo's past.

They say "The SNES mini (or, to continue Nintendo's official branding, likely the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System) is now scheduled to launch in time for Christmas this year". If this us true, we are hoping that Nintendo did learn from their mistake with the NES classic and no repeat them with the NES Mini. Which makes sense - the NES Classic was a massive success, and Nintendo could never produce enough of them to actually keep them on shelves (feel free to pay triple the asking price on eBay if you're still in the market).

Nintendo's NES Mini proved an unexpected success for the company a year ago. However, most may have forgotten that the resurrection of the famed 1986 game console was expected to be done on a limited basis.

They came out and played harder, more aggressive, did everything they wanted to do", Tucker said, via The Atlantic's Eric Koreen . Kidd is not afraid of mixing it up and trying out different combinations, it's just that those are not always to team's benefit.

Eurogamer claims sources close to the company have leaked information that the SNES mini is now currently in development and has a 2017 release date. Now, the news outlet has revealed that Nintendo has confirmed that it will cease the production of the device but then it is yet to be known if the suspension of production will be worldwide.

The Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition made a surprise return and gamers surprising still wanted a unit of their own. Even more so when you consider how popular the NES Classic was.

It looks like Nintendo already had a plan in mind when they made a decision to discontinue the NES Classic Edition, as reports are saying that the SNES Mini is already in development. That said, allowing the SNES Mini library to expand via purchased downloads (a la the Virtual Console on other Nintendo consoles) seems like a no-brainer way to provide a continued revenue stream and longer-term interest in the hardware.
