SNES Classic confirmed, releases on 9/29 WITH STARFOX2!!??

Forums - Gaming Discussion - SNES Classic confirmed, releases on 9/29 WITH STARFOX2!!??

Solid selection of games. Could have used Final Fantasy IV (II), Chrono Trigger, and also maybe Gradius III and/or UN Squadron. They really should have had 30 games. The SNES had just as many classics as the NES.

Also, $80 is a bit much considering there's fewer games on it than on the NES Mini. They went from $2 per game to $3.81 per game. It's nowhere near as good of a value proposition as the NES Mini was.

I might try to get an SNES Mini just to have one, but I'm more interested in the Polymega retro console right now.

Amiibo shortages, NES Classic shortages, Switch shortages now this :P

Going to pass on this as well, but hopefully they will have enough supply this time around

Wait... what? Was not expecting this today.

And they're releasing a brand new game that never came out?

well, the starfox brand is actually decades old.

I know, but that doesn't stop it from being a brand new game.



When will it be available for pre-order?!?!? And yes, it needs Chrono Trigger!

Good line-up even if there aren't that many games.
Won't buy it though as I can play these games on my PC/laptop/phone/360/PS3/PSP etc.
Nevertheless, a nice little collector's item.



This should be happy news. I should be excited. But, instead, I'm dreading it. I remember that NES Classic I searched for and never got. I'll miss pre-orders, I'll never seen one in stores, it'll cost $250 via scalpers. And, I'll never get to play Star Fox 2. Thank you, Nintendo, for conditioning me to have a Pavlovian misery reaction to any announcement you make.



They finally decided it was a good time to release StarFox 2 now that it won't interfere with StarFox 64 sales.

Yeah, I was kinda thinking the same thing, like it seemed unlikely for them to do this, releasing an old, long passed forgotten, unreleased game.

Especially considering how they are thorough with quality, and this one never passed their quality control standards before.
But it's an interesting way to attract attention to this product. Unexpected. Not that it needed it though. It's gonna sell out worldwide in 0.1 seconds.

Actually it was in quality control according to Wikipedia, that base it on statements of developer Dylan Cuthbert:

"In an interview with Nintendo Life in 2015, Cuthbert reveals he has a copy of the game's finalized ROM image, completely reviewed and debugged by Mario Club, which he acquired during the development of Star Fox Command, and states that the mastered ROM image sustains many elements that remain missing from the leaked prototype ROM images."

Hmm, we might not have seen this earlier, because:

"In a 2015 interview, programmer Dylan Cuthbert revealed that releasing the game on the newer Nintendo eShop is also very unlikely due to major legal disputes between Nintendo and Argonaut Software, despite the fact the latter is defunct."
