The SNES Classic is priced at $79.99, which is $20 higher than the MSRP for the NES Classic, however, the former comes with two controllers instead of one. If you would like to know more about the background of Star Fox 2 and its development I would recommend checking out Nintendolife's article here.

But if a year ago was any indication, it might not be a bad idea to rush to a store when the units go on sale if you've got a classic gaming fan on your gift list.

The new system will have the same look and feel as the 1991 original, but will be slightly smaller.

After revealing the Star Fox 2's inclusion in the SNES Classic earlier today, Nintendo released a new piece of art for the game promoting it's inclusion on the system.

As with its now sold-out Classic Min: NES predecessor, the Classic Mini: SNES can be plugged into any HDMI slot on your TV for instant retro gaming goodness.

On the other hand, there is still a possibility that everyone that wants to get an SNES Classic might not have the chance. Production on that ceased back in April 2017, upsetting a lot of fans who hoped to play those truly classic games again. Nintendo said that retailers will release availability details soon. In fact, it will only be available for a few short months, from its release on September 29th to the December 31st of 2017, as Nintendo has no plans of shipping any more units into the new year.

It also comes with a second controller in the box so that you can sit cross-legged on the floor and enjoy the multiplayer games with your friends just like you used to. Nintendo publicly stated that their long term goals are focused on producing games for the Switch. Some of the games with multiplayer options include Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III: The Alien Wars and Secret of Mana. Already gamers are rushing to pre-order the SNES Mini for fear of the same. If you do, you'll be rewarded not only with the console, but also with two wired SNES controllers and a collection of 21 games loaded onto the console for free.
