Can’t Say We Didn’t See This One Coming
Back in July 2016, Nintendo announced that they would be releasing the NES Classic. The reborn, classic console from our childhood came updated with HDMI outputs and they eliminated the need for cartridges by housing games within the system; with unforgettable titles, such as: Castlevania, Punch Out!, Ghost n’ Goblins, and many other games. While the retro console may have been discontinued, it seems like Nintendo isn’t done pulling at our heart strings, as they have just recently announced that they will be bringing the Super NES back to life this year.
Just like the Classic NES, the Super NES Classic Edition will come bundled with 21 awesome games from way back when, which also includes an unreleased Star Fox 2 game.
Here’s the full list of games you’ll be getting with the Super NES Classic:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars™
- Donkey Kong Country™
- Final Fantasy III
- Kirby™ Super Star
- Kirby’s Dream Course™
- The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
- Mega Man® X
- Secret of Mana
- Star Fox™
- 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 Metroid™
- Super Punch-Out!! ™
- Yoshi’s Island™
Personally, I would get this console just for Secret of Mana, The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, and Final Fantasy III, but that is a killer line up of games you’re getting with the rebirth of this OG console.
The Super NES Classic will come with an HDMI cable, two Super NES controllers, and the power cord. It has been priced at $80, or just above the Php 4000 mark, but God knows how much it’ll cost when it initially reaches our shores. The classic console is set to be released on September 29.
