Super NES Classic finally shows up

Super NES Classic finally shows up

The NES Classic Edition was notoriously hard to find, which was only accented earlier this year when the company announced it would be discontinuing production. Scalpers had a field day with NES Classic. The SNES Classic would offer an easier way for new gamers to experience Chrono Trigger the same way I did, albeit on a way nicer television screen.

While Chrono Trigger has been released on PlayStation and Nintendo DS, the former being a botched port. The NES Classic cost $60 but now reportedly is triple that cost in online auctions.

The mini version of the 16-Bit system will September 29 with 21 games.

The announcement of the SNES Classic rocked the gaming world today, especially given that it will ship with 21 of Nintendo's most classic releases for the console. That was the genius behind the Wii, which got people to buy a console for silly motion games that otherwise have no interest in video games.

The system comes preloaded with more than 20 games, including memorable hits like Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy III and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. If we were to name a ideal video game, there would be arguments to be made for each of those.

That's part of the problem, though. Perhaps Square Enix or Nintendo have their own personal motivation to keep Chrono Trigger out of the limelight.

Pandora Media's CEO Tim Westergren to step down - Recode
Since the start of 2017, Pandora's shares have fallen more than 35 percent, to around $8.43 Monday. Swift famously pulled her catalog from Spotify in 2014 after the release of her "1989" album.

I get that working out licensing rights for games that are 25 years old might be a little hard in some cases, but that should be a non-issue with the SNES Classic Edition.

The more companies, developers and publishers you bring in to the project, the more Nintendo has to get lawyers involved. Some of those publishers are already represented in the games that are confirmed for the SNES Classic, so what's the hold up there? We all dreamed big about what sorts of games would be on this theoretical thing, from obvious picks to secret weapons, but there was one game nobody bothered to put on their list, not because we didn't want it, but because it didn't seem possible that it would be included: Star Fox 2.

You may have a better chance of getting your hands on the SNES Classic Edition, as Nintendo says it is making "Significantly More" units this time around.

In that sense, it feels like the SNES Classic Edition wasn't crafted with care, but rather as a way to capitalize on the popularity of the NES Classic Edition.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System contains 21 pre-installed classic games, can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable.

While the Atari Flashback console will include 105 built-in games, such as "Pac-Man" and "River Raid", the Sega Genesis mini console feature 85 but has a cartridge port for physical games.
