Nintendo Reveals Reason Behind NES Classic Departure

Mario Tennis Ultra Smash Game

Reports out of gaming news outlet Eurogamer have suggested that Nintendo will look ton follow-up last year's NES Mini with a similar miniature retro console, this time for their SNES.

This is despite the fact that the recent price of NES Classic Edition is nearly six times the suggested retail price of $60 (almost at a part with today's new gen consoles).

Putting out a SNES Classic seems like an obvious move, if only because numerous company's most iconic titles were released on the console.

Their report claims Nintendo's plan with the NES mini was always to only ship the tiny console as a novelty item during the Christmas 2016 period and never meant to sell it as a permanent product.

According to a report, you can expect the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) to get the NES Classic treatment.

If all those licensed games are a bit too pricey for Nintendo to bundle on the console, then let us buy them separately - a downloadable game store, just like the Nintendo E-Shop, would be a guaranteed way to make some extra cash once gamers have paid for the hardware itself. Unfortunately, Nintendo couldn't extend the run of the NES mini since it already had plans to release the SNES mini. Not at all. More so, considering Nintendo's sloth-like approach to adding games to it.

Eurogamer, though, hopes that Nintendo has learned its lesson with the NES Mini and come out this time with enough stocks to avoid the same mistake. For the SNES Mini, though, we'd love to be able to plug in our still-working AsciiPad or hook up the ridiculously large Super Advantage joystick to a new, HDMI-equipped system. NES Classic Edition was only a cool novelty item that would make a great Christmas 2016 gift.

Some of these old favourite game titles could return plus more for the SNES Classic Edition.
