It’s funny, I was just talking to some friends the other day, us all discussing what games we would want to see on a hypothetical SNES Classic Edition console, and what does Nintendo do today but announce it coming, with 21 games. Sure, not nearly as many as the NES Classic Edition had at 30 games, but still this was quite the announcement.
I’ll cover this more in depth later, but for now I’ll share what I think – this is cool, sure, but I hate the upcoming retail hell that will come from this. Ignoring that though, the game selection is pretty decent, with some amazing titles like Earthbound and Final Fantasy 3 (6, properly) being on the console. More importantly though, this marks the release of StarFox 2, a game that was cancelled with the impending release of the N64: it will finally get to see the light of day!
I see this console having more of a demand in hardcore gamers, and not as much of a casual demand as the NES Classic did. That being said it will still be an in-demand console, so, get ready…
More to come on this gaming topic, so stay tuned, or whatever you do with a website.
