Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System Officially Announced

Step back into the 90s and re-experience some timeless classics when the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System launches in Australia and New Zealand on 30th September with a suggested retail price of AU$119.95. The Nintendo USB AC Adapter (SRP AU$19.95) will also launch on the same date, and is suitable for use with the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

On 30th September the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (“SNES”), Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System (“NES”), returns in a new petite form as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (“SNES Classic Edition”). Launched in Australia and New Zealand in 1992, the Super Nintendo 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 SNES Classic Edition contains 21 pre-installed classic games, and can easily be plugged into a 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 that was created during the Super Nintendo era but never released … anywhere!

The SNES Classic Edition has the same look and feel of the original system, only smaller, and comes pre-loaded with 21 games:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • 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

All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans that 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 level of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).

Included with the SNES Classic Edition are 1x HDMI cable, 1x USB power cable*, and 2x wired Nintendo Classic Mini: Super NES Controllers – perfect for players to dive into multiplayer action right away.

You can pre-order the SNES Classic Edition from Mighty Ape now!

*Note that an AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the system but is not included in the packaging.
