Just a day after we speculated on the reason behind Nintendo ceasing production of the NES Classic, new information has come to light. According to a report from Eurogamer, sources have revealed that the SNES Classic is in production. This would properly answer the biggest question regarding the NES Classic. Why was it killed off, and it makes more sense than to preserve the Nintendo Switch’s Virtual Console. If true, it would be understandable that Nintendo wouldn’t want 2 different systems out, that essentially do the same thing.
The report indicates that the SNES Classic would be arriving Christmas 2017. Also, that the console would be expected to have a similar plug and play experience to the NES Classic. Would this mean no downloadable games? What games would be included? So many questions left in the wake of this news. The SNES represents a major milestone in gaming in the sense that gamers saw some of their favorite franchises begin to mature. It would be a safe bet to expect Super Mario World and The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past, if Nintendo follows suit from the NES Classic. Here’s to hoping that The Legend of Zelda Link to the Past and Final Fantasy III join the roster.
Similarly to the questions surrounding the NES Classic, with E3 looming, we can hope for some news regarding not only the SNES Classic but the Nintendo Switch and its Virtual Console.
