Starfox 2 confirmed. If there's no preorders there will be blood. They have zero excuse this time

Yes, Nintendo. Put a never-before-released game on a niche product that will completely sell out (to flippers-- not customers, mind you) in 5 minutes. But don't worry Switch owners, we'll get Virtual Console... sometime... in 2018... or y'know, whenever they feel like adding something (anything!!) to the eshop.

Can't wait for the first VC title to be Urban Champion.

I'm watching Amazon like a hawk for pre-orders. Or checking Gamestop to see if you can pre-buy one there.

I will be at Nintendo of America with torches in hand if I'm not able to secure one of these (and I'm sure I won't be the only one) I already have a Raspberry Pi but SNES is my favorite system of all time. Out of the box, it already has almost every major SNES game I could have wanted, the only major one missing is Chrono Trigger, but it has Final Fantasy VI/III, which is my favorite game of all time so I'm set. Please don't screw this release up Nintendo.

bc they used E3 to focus on Switch. Announcing this then would take the Switch's thunder away and draw even more attention to the fact that the Virtual Console is MIA. Plus, I expect this to be a limited release like the NES Classic so they probably dont want to give it too much focus bc it will sell out

I'm really interested to see how this Starfox 2 differs from the work in progress rom that's been floating around. With Nintendo's attention to detail there's no way they're releasing this unless it's been finished completely. I'm looking forward to the eventual rom dump since I highly anticipate them to handle this just like the NES mini.

More than likely, or they themselves work the dock at BB, Gamestop, Wal Mart.

Two controllers will be included in the box, but you'll need an AC adaptor to use its USB plug.

For Star Fox 2, never released before anywhere, you'll need to complete the first level of the original Star Fox to unlock the game.

The full list of games included with the SNES mini in Europe lies below:
  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby's Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Street Fighter 2 Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania 4
  • Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • Yoshi's Island
Yep, that's a beast of a list. I'll be pre ordering this ASAP. Don't understand why they don't do pre orders in the US though.

Nintendo hates us. They'll probably have pre-orders only at the store in NYC. That is a pretty damned good list.

What would stop a person in the US from being able to use the UK one? I'm assuming with HDMI out these don't run PAL, plus the system just looks so much better than ours.

I don't think anything would but GAME doesn't ship to the US so that's one little hiccup right there.

Edit: GAME actually does ship to the US, I must have been thinking of somewhere else (possibly HMV)

I've been on there for 15 mins trying to log in. sites a POS and so is GAME as a company. Hopefully Amazon will have their link up soon.

Power supply will probably be the only thing you'd need to sort out. If it's universal voltage then you just need to get one of those crazy two pronged plugs!

I'm assuming the author at Gizmodo is a moron since they're saying

If you’re in Europe, there’s even more reason to be excited about the SNES Classic Edition because you’ll be getting a version of the console styled after the original Japanese Super Famicom, with a curvier design and rainbow action buttons on the controllers.
Ummmmm.....if I'm not mistaken the NA was the only one that got the ugly design so it should not be a surprise that the UK version looks as it's supposed to.

Yes it was just the US. Europe had the Super Famicom design.

Haha. I hate guys getting paid to write about this stuff that don't even give a shit about the industry. Just cashing their paycheque winging their way through one article at a time.
