Nintendo broke a lot of hearts last week when it announced that it would shut down production on its nostalgia-baiting, incredibly hard-to-get NES Classic Edition. Fortunately news dropped this morning that might offset that gigantic bummer: Nintendo is reportedly working on a Super Nintendo Mini Classic Edition, and it might drop before Christmas.
Eurogamer's sources say that discontinuing the retread of Nintendo's first game console was partly a move to clear the way for the next model in the Classic Edition lineup. "Development of the device is already under way," Eurogamer editor Tom Phillips writes.
This, of course, is insanely exciting news. While the original NES games are all classic, the Super Nintendo was a child of the '90s, with a total 783 official software releases that included Chrono Trigger, Super Metroid, Super Mario World, Street Fighter II Turbo, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (which two decades later is still the best Zelda game).
