Nintendo possibly planning a mini SNES for the holidays

Nintendo possibly planning a mini SNES for the holidays

It seems, if Eurogamer's report is true (and writer Tom Phillip's track record is certainly excellent), that last year's mini console may have been a testbed for the even more marketable SNES Classic.

The company had previously explained that the NES Classic was never meant to be an ongoing, long-term product so it was only a matter of time before it was discontinued.

TrustedReviews has rounded up all the latest news regarding the highly anticipated SNES Classic Mini. The publication's sources say that development of the new mini console is already underway. Some might also be hoping for the company to include support for its Virtual Console, which allows users to purchase, download, and play additional classic games. The Switch was the fastest-selling console out of the gate in Nintendo history, and in the first six weeks it sold 2.4 million units.

Hot on the heels of news that Nintendo has made a decision to end production of its coveted (and, many would argue, artificially limited) NES Classic Edition miniature console, the company has now turned its attention to a sequel of sorts, if recent reports are to be believed. Shortages in both North America and Europe were commonplace, leading to its price being heavily inflated by resellers, much to the disdain of those still attempting to secure one.

Caitlyn Jenner wasn't 'comfortable' having sex with Kris Jenner
According to a new report in Us Weekly , Caitlyn's upcoming memoir, " The Secrets of My Life ", is the catalyst for the fight. While she writes sex with Kris was "imbued" with love, Caitlyn admits she was not always 100 percent okay with it.

Make sure you get your SNES Mini as quick as you can, because your best option of getting it after the fact will be in the eBay resale market, which will undoubtedly sell for a markup. What's more, while Nintendo technically sold more NES than SNES consoles over their respective lifetimes (roughly 62 million versus 49 million), the SNES is generally remembered as the superior experience.

Assuming the SNES Classic will have the same static lineup as the NES Classic did, it's going to be hard to please everyone, especially if they limit the lineup to 30 games.

It looks like Nintendo has another video game console planned for 2017, and it's a throwback to the early 1990s.
