  • The $80 Super NES Classic Edition is a flashback to Nintendo’s early-90s glory days but it lacks many modern features

About 50 people were lined up at the Toys R Us in Seal Beach as of 8 a.m. Friday, in anticipation of the morning's release of the Super Nintendo mini. On the right side of the law, Nintendo has already started releasing some classic games as downloads for its more modern hardware, with more expected to come for the Switch console.

Even though video and game rental stores were everywhere in the 1990s, they didn't carry every SNES game you wanted to get your hands on.

If you already have NES Classic or Wii U extension cables those should work just fine without the need to buy new ones. It comes with two controllers instead of just one, and they have longer cords now, thank heavens.

Finally, the SNES Classic launched yesterday on the 29th of September, and although the high demand definitely caused some hefty lines and waiting periods for people coming out to buy the console, the general consensus is that, at least, it's actually possible to go home with the console after the wait. While Nintendo promises that they'll reach demand, Nintendo fans are still skeptical, and are seeking ways to play the lost Holy Grail that is the unreleased Star Fox 2 without the microconsole. And each game has four "suspend" points, allowing players to save a game midlevel - unlike in the original system, which forced you to rush to finish a level because your mother was calling you to dinner. A quick read through some and you'll be able to glean some lovely extraneous information on the games.

If you're a gaming completionist, don't miss this chance to play a new classic. "Once we do, our customers will be the first to know!" You get a bunch of built-in games including Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart and more! "We sold out of our SNES Classic inventory within minutes in both our GameStop and ThinkGeek retail channels". Recognizing how massively popular this sleek console had become, the company said it would ship more SNES Classics through 2018.
