Nintendo Might Release a Mini SNES Just in Time for Christmas



Get ready, true 90’s kids. Nintendo might release a miniature version of the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System for all you noobs out there).

“Sources close to the company” have confirmed to Eurogamer that Nintendo plans to follow up the NES Mini with these new version of the classic console.

“The SNES mini (or, to continue Nintendo’s official branding, likely the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System) is currently scheduled to launch in time for Christmas this year. Development of the device is already under way, our sources have indicated.”

Eurogamer also points out that this is the main factor as to why Nintendo is discontinuing the highly demanded NES Mini, not to get more customers to buy the Switch, as fans had speculated.

I know what I’m asking Santa for this year!
