Rumour: There's a SNES mini coming before Christmas

Sources "close to the company" have let slip to the site that a miniature version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) is scheduled to arrive in time for Christmas, with development already having started, according to the report.

One of the most sought-after gaming items from a year ago was Nintendo's NES Classic Edition. If the mini SNES arrives better stocked and more widely available, then perhaps there truly were genuine issues getting those NES Classic Editions churned out, with Nintendo ultimately giving up trying soon after. Maybe next year we'll get an N64 Classic Edition with Goldeneye and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. On the bright side, the SNES has a variety of classic games.

The SNES Mini will be the follow-up to the widely sought after NES Classic, which was released on November 11, 2016.

Nintendo has been in the news a lot lately for its rather wacky decision to cancel the popular NES Classic Edition. It's not clear if the mini SNES would come with an equal number of titles, or perhaps more. However, Nintendo chose not to make enough of them initially, then chose not to react to that demand, and then took the head-scratching decision to discontinue the product last week.

Nintendo's seemingly boneheaded move in killing off production of the NES Classic Edition is starting to make a little bit more sense. The SNES Mini seems a pretty good candidate. If it comes out true, the SNES Mini will definitely follow the footsteps of the Nintendo NES Classic Mini. Though there hasn't been any word as to what games are going to be on the console, but one thing is for certain, there are going to be some solid games for gamers to relive their favorite gaming moments. We got this signal previous year with the NES, and now we're receiving it again with the upcoming SNES. As with the NES Classic, the mini SNES will come rocking a replica controller and preinstalled games.
