Meet Nintendo Classic Mini SNES Retro Games Console
Answering the calls of nostalgic adults pining for the video games of their yesteryears, the SNES Classic is a console from Nintendo that is a miniature version of the famed system from the 90’s. The original system played games that came on cartridges, but as these accumulate, they can take up a great deal of space. Unfortunately for those that already have a sizeable collection, the SNES Classic’s mini interface does not include a cartridge slot. Instead, it comes pre-loaded with 21 games. It makes a great start for those that remember the Super Nintendo’s offerings that are starting from scratch. The 21 pre-loaded games include a number of SNES classics from the platformer, racing, action, and RPG genres, such as the iconic Super Mario World, StarFox, and even the exceptionally rare Earthbound, the latter of which can go for hundreds of dollars all by itself. Buying all these titles in their original cartridge form could break your bank account. Additionally, the SNES Classic Edition comes with the previously unreleased StarFox 2, granting fans of the original the sequel they’ve been waiting decades to experience.One of the downsides of working with an original SNES console is that its original design is not compatible with many HD televisions. The SNES Classic comes with HDMI hookups, bringing you the retro games you love in gorgeous clarity. Additionally, if you downloaded SNES titles to your Nintendo Wii or Wii U, you can connect these controllers and play them the way you remember playing them. The Wii’s classic-style controller will also connect to your SNES Classic Edition if you happen to need a quick replacement.
