Nintendo's Super NES Classic Edition is nostalgia, revisited

Big W Have The SNES Classic Mini For Sale Online Right Now Shannon Grixti

The SNES Classic is and will be in equally high demand, and in the months leading up to its release yesterday, its development has been followed by reports both promising and troubling.

It's a very exciting day for Nintendo fans. More importantly, were you actually able to get yourself an SNES Classic at launch?

Super Nintendo Entertainment System has been released today and Nintendo has dropped a magnificent trailer of what's in store.

The NES Classic Mini featured 30 games (although you could add more by hacking the machine), all accessible through a smart, easy-to-use scrollable menu system. Other stores have gamers clambering to get their hands on these hot gaming consoles.

If pre-order buzz is any indication, it could be even harder to pin down a Super NES Classic this holiday season. Consoles are now being sold online for quadruple the suggested retail price and Nintendo hasn't been clear on when more will be made available. At midday Friday, many online retailers were already sold out. Both of them are a little more expensive than the NES Mini past year.

Less than 24 hours after the official release of its sequel miniature console, users have found that Hakchi2 also works with the SNES Classic. Old SNES consoles can be had on eBay with bids starting as low as $45. If you are more interested in the games than the trappings, then take a close look at the list of games.

You're also going to get two wired retro Super NES controllers - so, who fancies some late night Mario Kart action? And each game has four "suspend" points, allowing players to save a game midlevel - unlike in the original system, which forced you to rush to finish a level because your mother was calling you to dinner.

It seems like Nintendo is having a pretty successful launch for the SNES Classic Edition.

Nintendo released a miniature version of its first household games console in November past year and it sold out nearly immediately.
