Nintendo's Super NES Classic Edition is nostalgia, revisited

Contra III Super NES Classic Edition Nintendo

The game system comes with pre-loaded games like Super Mario, Donkey Kong, and more.

The SNES Classic Edition is out today, and is probably now en route to those lucky enough to have scored a pre-order, and being picked up by bleary-eyed fans who set up early at game store locations around the world. 7974, -0.02% released its first mini console, the NES Classic in 2016, it created massive buzz for the holiday season, but was plagued by low supply and high demand.

Did you cop the new SNES Classic Edition?

The extra cost (over the NES Classic Mini, which was £49.99 at launch) is due to two controllers being bundled with the system this time around.

Gamestop - Gamestop was also only doing walk-ins for the SNES Classic at open, however, they do have a few pricey bundles available for the system as well. The original was the best-selling video game console of its time. Meanwhile, according to Kotaku on yesterday's launch, "In June, when Nintendo announced the Super Nintendo Classic, the company promised that it would manufacture more consoles than it did for last year's NES Classic...." A quick read through some and you'll be able to glean some lovely extraneous information on the games.

Much like your dad watching the football and saying: "It was nothing like this in my day, hard as nails they were", you might find yourself talking to your younger cousins about how gaming back in the day was completely different. You could also pause a game, return to the menu and pick it up again later. While Nintendo promises that they'll reach demand, Nintendo fans are still skeptical, and are seeking ways to play the lost Holy Grail that is the unreleased Star Fox 2 without the microconsole.

Here's a taste of what Caroline and I experienced playing the Super NES Classic Edition.

The NES Classic Edition was one of the hottest holiday gifts of 2016, and almost impossible to find. More of a perk of the online service rather than the definitive way to play classic Nintendo games on the Switch.
