Calling all indie lovers!
Nintendo is set to launch its new miniature Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) by Christmas 2017.

Fans are expecting to see popular titles such as, Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, and Street Fighter II Turbo come to the mini SNES. However, whether or not classic titles will be directly available via the new system or not is still up in question.
Potential SNES Titles:

- Super Metroid
- Super Mario Kart
- Chrono Trigger
- Donkey Kong Country
- Yoshi’s Island

This new console will be a definitely blast to the past for those who grew up playing the original Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
(Mini Nintendo Entertainment System)
This news comes following the discontinuation of the well-loved mini NES Classic Edition that initially outsold Nintendo’s sales expectations in 2016.
The mini NES Classic Edition came equipped just 30 classic titles and was popular despite its lack of overall potential playtime. We can only hope that Nintendo will be better prepared for its next venture with the mini SNES.
This news is no doubt an interesting move for the Nintendo, following the recent launch of the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch.
