Grab your koopa shells and get your thumbs stretched: Nintendo’s reportedly releasing the MiniSNES later this year! Yes, the mini version of the classic Super Nintendo could be hitting shelves soon, and Nintendo fans are pumped! You have to see how much hard they flipped on Twitter!
What’s old is new again, and Nintendo is jumping on that train with everything got. After the massive success of the MiniNES system released over the Holidays 2016 season, Nintendo is reportedly musing the possibility of making a mini version of their beloved and legendary Super Nintendo system, according to a report from Eurogamer. It’s perfect timing considering the video game giant just discontinued the MiniNES, much to the shock and disappointment of fans.
The decision to discontinue MiniNES was utterly confusing, considering how much dedicated Nintendo fans loved it. It was a tiny version of the classic NES system, which game preloaded with 30 retro Nintendo games and only cost $60. It was rumored that it was taken off shelves so that people would buy the brand new Nintendo Switch instead, which costs a whopping $300. But if it was actually discontinued because of the MiniSNES…that’s pretty acceptable. These Nintendo mega-fans think so too:
Oh my god ill marry anyone who buys me a Mini Nintendo SNES. It's coming!! 😍😍😍

Nintendo is releasing the SNES Mini. Only 1 will be released.
A death match will be held for it. The person to win it will have to sell it.

If the MiniSNES is hitting shelves soon, fans could get the chance to revisit some amazing gaming favorites. It seems likely that the MiniSNES would follow the same make of its predecessor, and come preloaded with dozens of games (hopefully).
Think about how many of these could be at our fingertips again: Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart and Super Mario World, Earthbound, Star Fox. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Square’s Chrono Trigger, and Secret of Mana. Fingers crossed that Nintendo follows through and makes our dreams come true!
