While information on the mini-console is thin on the ground, early rumours suggest it could arrive later this year.
A new rumbling is happening on the web and it's about another retro console making a comeback.
That discontinuation decision was made as a way to make way for the new Super Nintendo system, sources tell Eurogamer.
United Airlines debacle: Was a 'random' computer search really to blame?
No passengers on the plane have mentioned that Dao did anything but refuse to leave the plane when he was ordered to do so. The airline said it is "reaching out" to customers on Flight 3411 and "offering compensation for their flights".
Eurogamer, citing sources "close to the company", wrote: "Nintendo will follow up its smash-hit NES microconsole with a mini version of the SNES". The little console came pre-loaded with 30 classic Nintendo 8-bit games - though clever hacks have let people load the system with many, many more games (even some from other systems). We're hoping that this system sticks around for good, but we still recommend staying vigilant so you can order one the second they go on sale.
Make sure you get your SNES Mini as quick as you can, because your best option of getting it after the fact will be in the eBay resale market, which will undoubtedly sell for a markup. Hopefully, Nintendo can meet the demand this time for consumers of the beloved classic console, but who knows?
Nintendo has only said, so far, that the NES Classic Edition is being discontinued in North America. It's time to put that in the past now and look forward to the SNES Mini.
Nintendo will release a mini version of the Super Nintendo during the 2017 holiday season, according to Eurogamer on Wednesday. As the NES Mini is out of production now, it seems that the Japanese tech giant has started working to produce the next Mini console. Fans will like it not because of its similar to NES Classic Mini. The video game maker may be setting their sights on a sequel later this year. As a reminder there are heaps of classics to choose from, including Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox.
