The Super NES Classic Mini has officially been slated for a September 29 release, but the real question remains – when can we place an order!
Although SNES inventory will be in greater supply than with the NES, let’s be realistic. The Super NES Classic includes a pre-installed collection of 21 legendary games, including the never-been-released Star Fox 2, as well as a second controller for a reasonable $79.99. Furthermore, Nintendo has only guaranteed shipping through 2017, so it’s quite possible that if you don’t get a copy by December, you won’t get one at all (at least at list price). If you intend to skip preordering and wait until launch to secure a copy, you’re setting yourself up for a tenacious experience.
