While many fans were saddened by the abrupt discontinuation of the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo apparently wanted to make peace with fans and compensate for that surprising move. The company just announced the Super NES Classic Edition to be released on Sept. 29, 2017.

However, Nintendo also revealed that they only plan to ship the new retro console until the end of the year, stating no possible shipments beyond that.

List of games for the SNES Classic Edition

While we contemplate Nintendo’s announcement and figure out why it only plans to release a potentially popular hardware on a limited basis, the company also unveiled the List Of Games that come pre-installed with the new console, 21 titles in total.

  • "Super Mario World"
  • "Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island."
  • "Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars"
  • "Super Mario Kart"
  • "Star Fox"
  • "Star Fox 2"
  • "Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts"
  • "Super Castlevania IV"
  • "Contra III: The Alien Wars"
  • "F-Zero"
  • "Final Fantasy III"
  • "Mega Man X"
  • "Secret of Mana"
  • "Donkey Kong Country"
  • "Earthbound"
  • "Street Fighter II Turbo"
  • "Super Metroid"
  • "Super Punch-Out"
  • "Kirby Super Star"
  • "Kirby’s Dream Course"
  • "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past"

Can we add more games on the SNES Classic Edition?

If you look at the list, a few notable titles were not included such as “Chrono Trigger” and “Actraiser.” September is still a long way to go so keep your fingers crossed, and Nintendo might include these classic games.

However, it would be great if Nintendo would let us put our own favorite games on this new console as it only comes with fewer games compared to its predecessor. It would also provide significant value to Nintendo's new hardware. Sadly, SNES Classic is not expected to have an upgrade to its library of games as the console is designed only to have a short shelf life.

The SNES Classic’s hardware and capabilities

Unlike the NES Classic Edition, the new retro console will now come with two controllers, perfect for head-to-head fighting games like “Street Fighter.” You may also use the controllers of Wii or Wii U.

Fortunately, Nintendo decided to make its controllers five feet long this time around.

Compared to NES Classic’s three-foot cord, this is definitely an improvement. Although, having an eight-foot cord just like the original controller would have been better.

The physical Power and Reset Sliders are expected to be fully functional.

Reggie Fils-Aime, president, and CEO of Nintendo of America said that the company is still focused on delivering quality games to their Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS consoles. They are only offering the SNES Classic as an alternative to those people who have a great interest in playing retro games.

The SNES Classic Edition will be released on Sept. 29 for $80.
