Nintendo says that the Super NES Classic Edition will be released in late September. The console kit is a remake of the original version, released more than 2 decades ago.

The retro wave hit the IT sector, too and it’s been going on for a while now. Nostalgic gamers who 20 years ago were overexcited to receive on their birthday or on Christmas – or any occasion really – a Nintendo kit, now have the possibility of reliving the experience in high definition.

Nintendo announced that the new Super NES Classic Edition will be available to customers starting September 29.

The console has the original look from the 1990s. The only difference is in size, as this new one is a bit smaller. And it comes with 21 games preinstalled. Among them, there are:  Donkey Kong Country; Final Fantasy III; Kirby Super Star; Kirby’s Dream Course; The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past; Mega Man X; Star Fox; Star Fox 2; Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting; Super Mario Kart; Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars; Super Mario World and Yoshi’s Island.

Super NES Classic Edition will be priced at $79.99

Last year, Nintendo released the NES Classic console, looking very similar to its original version. Like the Super version, it included preinstalled classics, such as Pac-Man, TECMO BOWL, Dr. Mario, Kirby’s Adventure, Donkey Kong and The Legend of Zelda. The NES Classic Edition is available for purchase for $59.99.

NES Classic Edition is commercialized by Amazon, Best Buy, Game Stop, Target, Walmart and Toys R Us.

During the holiday season of 2016, the electronics giant sold over 1.5 million copies of the tiny retro gadget, a prediction that could be made for the upcoming Super NES Classic Edition, too.
