Unless you've been living under a rock lately, you have definitely mourned the discontinuation of the NES Classic Edition that happened recently. Thankfully, there is hope on the horizon since Nintendo has announced that they are working on a mini version of their SNES console, likely to be named the SNES Classic Edition. It is currently under development, and it should be released to the public "in time for Christmas this year", according to Eurogamer.

Up until now, the world was fairly shocked to discover that the NES Classic Edition would be discontinued since it was widely sought after, and sold out nearly everywhere around the world. It's definitely shocking to see a product with such high demand and value be completely discontinued, but at least now, we have some reasoning. The new development of the SNES Classic Edition must have had a role in the discontinuation of the NES edition. 

The NES Classic Edition launched back in 2016, and it acted as basically an emulator version of the original 1983 console with 30 pre-loaded games. Upon release, it sold faster than expected, and Nintendo ran into a stock shortage. Nidefinitelyinitely did not anticipate the amount of demand, and for the people that were out of luck purchasing one, the last shipments ever of the NES Classic Edition will be going out this month.

The SNES Classic will most likely fit a similar role as it's predecessor, with a large number of pre-downloaded games such as Metroid, Super Mario World, The Legend Of Zelda: Link To The Past just to name a few. Hopefully, Nintendo has learned from their experience with the NES Classic Edition and they've properly prepared for the initial selling phase. Either way, I would definitely clear up some funds for the SNES Classic in preparation for the holiday season. Tis the season to play classic retro games.
