Last year, GameXplain tested the NES Classic Edition with some Wii U games and the the Virtual Console. With the SNES Classic Edition’s launch, it’s time for another test.

Like we heard earlier in the week, the SNES Classic controller works absolutely fine with the NES Classic. You can also use it with Mario Kart 8 on Wii U as well as the Wii U Virtual Console. Since the SNES Classic controller layout is similar to the Wii Classic Controller, you shouldn’t have too many issues with the VC for the most part.

GameSpot obtained a brief statement from GameStop about the launch of the SNES Classic Edition. GameStop and ThinkGeek stores will both have units available for walk-in customers in the United States.

A GameStop representative did say that stores will have a “limited and varied amount of consoles” as expected. You may want to line up early and call your local store ahead of time.

Best Buy’s plans for the Super NES Classic Edition launch can be found here.

Best Buy has provided some information about how it’s handling the launch of the SNES Classic Edition.

The retailer has no plans online. However, those who did pre-order a unit will be receiving theirs on Friday.

As for the in-store launch, Best Buy will have limited quantities. Systems will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Best Buy is planning a ticketing process for customers waiting in line, with tickets being handed out starting at 7 AM local time. Tickets will only be given out for as many systems available, with a limit of one per customer.

In a recent interview about the SNES Classic Edition developer interview they covered Super Mario World. In the interview we got some images of some original sprite work and a very noseless Yoshi. There are also a few other notable sprites including the red magic balloon and the different Hammer Bros. I can’t tell if Yoshi looks more adorable or horrifying in its original sprites.

Digital Foundry has taken a closer look at the Super NES Classic Edition to find out what’s powering the hardware.

You may not be surprised to hear this, but Nintendo has repurposed the exact same technology from the NES Classic. Digital Foundry says it’s “almost a complete match for last year’s model.”

The fact that Nintendo is using last year’s technology isn’t entirely a bad thing. For one, the SNES Classic Edition didn’t really need any major boosts or changes. Digital Foundry also points out that it will be easier for the NES Classic Edition to be brought back next year.

HORI made it known that a Fighting Commander controller would be released with the Super Famicom a few weeks ago. That same controller has been confirmed in North America.

Amazon’s listing shows the the SNES Classic Edition Fighting Commander wireless controller is arriving later this week. It has turbo functions for each button as well as a slow-motion function, plus a six-button layout.

Amazon seemed to open pre-orders early today for a very brief period, but sold out. GameStop does have it here and will apparently begin shipping immediately.

The Super NES Classic Edition has a couple of hidden features worth knowing about. One lets you access the home menu whereas the other lets you reset the game you’re playing.

If you have a Wii Classic Controller, you can plug that right into the SNES Classic Edition. Then you only need to press the relevant button to return to the home menu.

As for one thing that doesn’t require any separate controllers, you can reset any of the games included on the SNES Classic Edition. Just hold the “L”, “R”, “select”, and “start” buttons for a second or two. That will easily let you reset the game.
