Original (6/26): The first UK retailer has opened pre-orders for the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System. GAME is taking reservations here. Based on what we saw with the NES Mini, pre-orders are likely to sell out quickly.

IGN has a lengthy new piece with Shigeru Miyamoto all about Mario. Miyamoto talked about letting other developers handle the IP, his initial worries with how players would react to New Donk City in Super Mario Odyssey, and not wanting to remake older games.

We’ve picked out some notable quotes below. The full article with more comments from IGN is located here.

Update: Now sold out. Definitely didn’t last long!


Original: The Nintendo UK store is now taking pre-orders for the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Get your reservation in here. We’re not expecting pre-orders to last terribly long, especially given how quickly it sold out on Amazon UK yesterday.

After more than two decades, Star Fox 2 is finally seeing release. Nintendo will be including the title in the Super NES Classic Edition at the end of September.

Kotaku emailed Dylan Cuthbert, the game’s original programmer, to talk about the news. Although Nintendo didn’t bring him on board for the Super NES Classic Edition launch, he’s personally excited, saying that it made his day.

Cuthbert also reflected on why Star Fox 2 never saw release in the first place:

“Our older retro form of 3D just didn’t cut it anymore and Nintendo didn’t want to raise comparisons. I agree that strategically (if not emotionally) it was the correct decision. But now our older retro form of 3D is the new cool kid on the block, it’s perfect timing!”

The latest episode of the Play Nintendo Show has gone live. Andrew and Jenna visit Nintendo’s 2017 Summer of Play Tour, and try out games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Miitopia. Check out the full episode below.

Earlier today, the Super NES Classic Edition was announced for North America and Europe. Japan will also be receiving a similar product in the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, which has just been announced. It will be coming out a few days later on October 5.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom will have 21 games just like the Super NES Classic Edition. However, there are some differences in the games that are included. Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack), Super Soccer, and The Legend of the Mystical Ninja are featured in the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, for example.

Here’s the full announcement and lineup of games:

Nintendo Co., Ltd., (HQ: Kyoto Minami-ku; Representative Director and President: Tatsumi Kimishima) announced that the home console, Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, will launch on October 5, 2017 at a manufacturer suggested retail price of 7,980 yen (tax not included).

Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom (to be sold as Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition in the U.S.) is a compact recreation of Super Famicom (sold as Super NES overseas), which launched in 1990, and features a collection of 21 titles selected from the rich library of Super Famicom games. The two included controllers have been recreated with the same size and button layout as the Super Famicom controllers, so you can relive the gameplay experiences of the ‘90s.

With the NES Classic Edition, the European version didn’t come with an AC adapter. Unsurprisingly, the same situation is in place with the Super NES Classic Edition.

Those picking up the North American version of the Super NES Classic Edition won’t have to worry. Nintendo will indeed be including an adapter with the packaging releasing stateside.

Good news about the length of the controller cord for the Super NES Classic Edition. Nintendo told Kotaku’s Jason Schreier that it’s five feet long.

With the NES Classic Edition, that controller was three feet long. Many felt that it was a bit too short, so the extension here should sit well with consumers.

Available stock is one of the big concerns with the just-announced Super NES Classic Edition. As we saw with the NES Classic Edition, it was extremely difficult for most consumers to order a unit, and shipments ceased only a few months after the initial launch.

Perhaps we won’t have to be quite as worried with the Super NES Classic Edition. In an official statement, Nintendo says it will make “significantly more units” in comparison to the NES Classic Edition.

The company’s full statement reads:
