The Super NES Mini will finally be available to preorder in late August, says Nintendo.
The company posted as much on its official Facebook page in a clarifying dispatch that
should ease worries about system availability in the lead up to the $79.99 micro-console’s
September 29 launch.
System,” says Nintendo in the post. “[We] can confirm that it will be made available for
pre-order by various retailers late this month.”The system is a pint-sized replica of Nintendo’s beloved 16-bit gray and purple console that
first arrived stateside in November 1991. Instead of top-loading cartridges, it comes with
21 games baked in, a pair of replica controllers and high-definition graphic support. Among
those 21 is Star Fox 2, a Star Fox sequel that Nintendo and British studio Argonaut Games
fully developed but never released.
Nintendo has promised to produce “significantly more” of the SNES Classic
than it did the NES Classic, a system that was perpetually sold out and eventually canceled
well short of meeting consumer demand. The company reiterated as much in its Facebook
post, writing, “A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for
launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year.”
