Why did Nintendo announce the Super Nintendo Classic Edition now?

Most successful Ebay listings for the Mini SNES promised they had already secured pre-orders for the systems they were reselling, with one seller boasting he had "confirmed 6 acquisition of the new mini Nintendo SNES from United Kingdom".

While the NES Classic Edition is loaded with 30 titles, the SNES Classic Edition only comes with 21 games.

Unofficial pre-release copies of a near-complete "Star Fox 2" had been in circulation among fan and hacking communities since 2004.

Both the European and Japanese SNES Classics feature a more rounded, soap-bar design, just as those regions' original SNES consoles did.

Although some fans have been able to play emulations of the game, Star Fox 2's first official release will be this September 29 as part of the SNES Classic.

"Our long-term efforts are focused on delivering great games for the Nintendo Switch system and continuing to build momentum for that platform, as well as serving the more than 63m owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems".

It's no secret that Nintendo's first mini console, The Mini NES, did incredibly well for itself.

Will the SNES Mini be as hard to find as its predecessor the NES Mini?

Atari has made seven retro-lite versions of its old consoles over the past 13 years, but failed to generate the hype of the NES Classic Mini.

Kotaku also reached out to Cuthbert, asking for some insight. While some less reputable sellers claim they already have the console, it is recommended to hold off until Amazon, EB and GameStop offer pre-orders. In an April interview with Time, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé said the company sold 2.3 million Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Editions, despite the console constanly being in short supply.
