Let me shoot my MechAssault shot.
Nintendo has finally announced its predecessor to the NES Classic via twitter in the form of the SNES Classic. The new mini console will feature 21 Super Nintendo games, including the long lost, never before released Star Fox 2. The SNES Classic will include two controllers, and will be available September 29th at $79.99.

The full list of games featured in the SNES Classic are as follows:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
- Donkey Kong Country
- Final Fantasy III
- Kirby Super Star
- Kirby’s Dream Course
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Mega Man X

- Super Castlevania IV
- Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts

Here’s hoping that this time around there’s enough stock for everyone, but knowing Nintendo, that probably won’t be the case. I’m gonna have to line up at Target at 7 in the morning to play Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the objectively best game on this entire list, for the fourth or fifth time in my life. Oh, and Star Fox 2 I guess.
