Nintendo announces the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System
26th June, 2017 – On September 29th the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, returns in a new petite form as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Launched in Europe in 1992, the SNES introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time – classics such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid and F-ZERO™.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System contains 21 classic games and can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable.
For the first time, players who pick up the system can enjoy the intergalactic adventure Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox (originally titled Starwing upon release in Europe) game that was created during the SNES era but never released…anywhere!
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System has the same look and feel of the original system – only smaller – and comes pre-loaded with 21 games:
- Contra III The Alien Wars
Originally released in Europe as Super Probotector: Alien Rebels
- Donkey Kong Country
- FINAL FANTASY® III
Originally released in Japan as FINAL FANTASY® VI
- Kirby Super Star
Originally released in Europe as Kirby's Fun Pak
- Kirby’s Dream Course
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Mega Man™ X
- SECRET of MANA®
- Star Fox
Originally released in Europe as Starwing
- Star Fox 2
- Street Fighter™ II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
- Super Castlevania IV
- Super Ghouls’n Ghosts™
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
- Super Mario World
- Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
- Super Metroid
- Super Punch-Out!!
Please note: all games included in the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System are the original US 60 Hz releases.
All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them in particular – SECRET of MANA®, FINAL FANTASY® III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete.
Even for super fans who have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 will offer them something entirely new to enjoy (players must prove their skill by completing the first stage of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).
Included with the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System are one HDMI cable, one USB power cable* and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers, perfect for players to dive into multiplayer action right away.
Some of the games with multiplayer options include Street Fighter™ II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III The Alien Wars and SECRET of MANA®.
Step back into the '90s and re-experience a timeless classic when Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System launches in South Africa on September 29th.
*Please note: an AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the system but is not included in the packaging.The Nintendo USB AC Adapter (sold separately) will also launch on the same date, and is suitable for use with Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
