    As you pointed out, Turtles In Time didn’t make the list for the SNES mini due to licensing issues.
    The same problem would probably keep GoldenEye off of an N64 mini, which would be a definite dealbreaker for me

    I have created an account to say one thing and one thing only. No Chrono Trigger = not buying this.

      They could’ve added chrono and radical dreamers… like starfox2, Radical Dreamers was a cancelled Chrono spiritual sequel.

      I still have my copy of Chrono Trigger signed by Nobuo Uematsu.

      Also, I’m probably never going to be able to get my hands on this or an NES mini. That’s why I’m going to build a raspberry pi to play with. It just sucks that I won’t have the complete Star Fox 2. Its so exciting to have a brand new Super Nintendo game over 20 years later.

    Leaving out Chrono Trigger is tragic. Probably my favorite SNES game (though it’s obviously hard to compare games from different genres).

    As for the price change, it appears to be from the snes classic coming with two controllers instead of one.

    I really hope it’s easy to hack and add in extra games like the NES mini was. This looks great!

    I think Nintendo on Steam is a great idea. Right now the SNES Classic comes to $3.80 a game, Nintendo could maybe get away with charging $4 per game and make even more money…

    Only a certain handful of people are going to continue to pay money for retro games. I have homebrew on my wii and every retro game I could ever want. I can relax on the couch with a controller in my hand and play Mega Man 2, and I don’t have to pay money and be hunched over at a computer, or spend money on a usb controller. Why would anyone pay money for something they don’t have to?

    I’m sure the SNES Classic cost more because of the obvious 2 controllers and the fact that Nintendo must have finally renewed the license for the Super FX chip. Nintendo previously was refusing to renew if before which is why Star Fox, Stunt Race FX, and the SNES version of Yoshi’s Island was never on the Virtual Console.

    It’s already unavailable.

      It’s not even out yet. September is the expected release date- I don’t expect most places to even accept preorders for some time, if at all.

      Hopefully they produce more of these VS the Nes classic- the only people who won with the Nes classic were the scalpers.

      • June 29, 2017 at 9:14 am

        People should seriously stop buying from scalpers..

    Screw Nintendo, they don’t care about us.

    Console mini are for suckers… there, I said it.

    Or just buy an original xbox and soft mod it and put the whole library of those systems on there….

    What Nintendo did with NES classic was a logical thing

    1. They have probed the marked and seen that the demand is there. So they decided to cut supply of the NES classic and pull their resources into SNES classic instead, so more people would buy it. Those who couldn’t get NES classic will go after SNES classic like after hot pancackes.

    2. They have created a deficit. Now when SNES is out, everyone will rush to buy them fearing that there will not be enough. You said it yourself – you got two of them. Everyone will go crazy over them and Nintendo will roll in money.

    They played you like a fiddle and you fell for it, while bashing Nintendo for “being stupid”.

    I hope they make a shop where you can buy SNES games for the system.

    I Know It’s Expanse But It’s Cheaper Than Buying It All Together.
