Just like the NES last year, Nintendo has officially announced that the Super Nintendo Entertainment System will be getting a makeover in the form of a miniature replica with HDMI support. The new SNES ‘Classic Edition’ was revealed earlier today, to much positive feedback from the fan community. It will feature less games than the original NES Mini, but it does have one small improvement: controller cord length.
The SNES Classic Edition will come with two SNES-style wired controllers, just like the NES Mini did last year. The difference is that the SNES controllers will be a little longer: two extra feet, to be exact. The short controller length of the original NES Classic was a popular complaint amongst customers, which led to some using wireless options instead. While five feet is still a pretty short length, it may be just long enough to allow some users to play from their couch this time around. If that’s still too short for you, Nintendo has confirmed that the SNES Classic will also support the Classic Controller/Classic Controller Pro from the Wii.
The Classic Edition of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System will be releasing on September 29th for $80 (US).
