Well. There it is. The rumoured SNES mini. Within an hour of pre-orders going up they were sold out and now the best you can do is register interest.

I managed to get a pre-order in with our Teodi's place (he works at Game) Just before the £10 deposit jumped to £50.


Will be retailing at £79.99 on 29th September.


Some lessons from NES mini include a longer lead for the pads (5 ft rather than 3 inch, fnar) and they'll be producing more to meet demand.


21 games:


Contra III: The Alien Wars

Donkey Kong Country


Final Fantasy III (IV in Japan)


Kirby Super Star

Kirby's Dream Course

Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Mega Man X

Secret of Mana

Star Fox

Star Fox 2

Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting

Super Castlevania IV

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts

Super Mario Kart

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Super Mario World

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Super Metroid

Super Punch Out

The Japanese box looks fantastic, as you'd expect for a replica of the original Super Famicom box. Also includes Panel de Pon! I guess the name Tetris Attack meant it wouldn't fly in the West.

I managed to preorder one from Amazon when it was first announced. I missed out on the NES but the SNES has far more gaming memories for me.
It will be interesting to see how the final version of Starfox 2 will compare to the ROMs floating around on the net.
I wonder what is under the hood and whether you will be able to upload your own games via hooky methods like the NES Classic, as Hebereke's Popoitto and Popoon are favourites in our house.
