Nintendo makes “significantly more” copies of the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System than last year’s NES Classic Mini.
The company reports this in a statement to GameSpot. The NES Classic Mini has been barely available in stores for the rest of the year since its release last fall. This year, Nintendo then announced that it would stop production of the device. Such situations should be avoided with the successor announced yesterday, the SNES Classic Mini.
“We’re not giving exact numbers, but we will be producing significantly more copies of the Super NES Classic Edition than the NES Classic Edition,” Nintendo’s statement read in full. However, it appears that the device will only be available for a short period of time: “The Super NES Classic Edition will be released on September 29 and will be available until the end of the calendar year. At the moment we have nothing to announce in terms of availability next year.”
The SNES Classic Mini will probably cost around 79.99 euros and will come with two controllers and 21 games, including the never-before-seen Star Fox 2.
