The SNES Classic comes with two controllers and 21 built-in games that you probably haven't played since the '90s, including Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy III, Super Mario Kart, and Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox that was never released. The system also sports a game-changing new "Rewind" feature (shown in the video below) that lets you retry tricky sections of some games and run through areas again to pick up items you may have missed the first time, according to a press release.
With any luck, more pre-orders will open soon and more SNES Classics will be available on launch day. Earlier this month, Nintendo promised more stock of the retro system, saying in a statement, “a significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year." But considering how maddeningly difficult it was to get an NES Classic during the holidays last year, you’ll probably still have to fight to get one of the damn things before they’re gone. Or at least be crazy fast, like Bowser in Mario Kart.
In the meantime, you can play the significantly less fun game of trying to score a pre-order. It’s on like Donkey Kong.
