Nintendo has announced the release of the SNES Mini Classic which is due to release on September 29. The pricing of it (for the UK at least) has been a bit sporadic with some places going to £69.99 while I have seen others up at the £85 mark. Seems to be a bit of a free for all with the prices with some retailers cashing in on it as they know it will sell out quickly… which I know places like Amazon have already sold out and it only took minutes.

From the response from Twitter and people left, right and centre saying that they had pre-ordered one I knew it wouldn’t take long.

Already on eBay, there are ones going for £200+. Crazy money!

Below you can read the release from Nintendo.

Step back into the ’90s and re-experience a timeless classic with Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, launching across Europe on September 29th.

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 Super NES 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.

What are everyone’s thoughts on Nintendo releasing these Classic consoles? Do you think it’s a good thing? Bad?

Would you prefer to have one of these consoles with a selection of games or would you prefer to have the original console and find the cartridges you want to play?

I’m still hoping for an N64 mini with Perfect Dark, Goldeneye and Ocarina of Time. I can see it happening but without the first 2 games.  Maybe the N64 mini will be next year’s Classic Release!
