Finally, Nintendo already confirmed that it's releasing the Super Nintendo Classic Edition, which is a follow-up console to the popular but extremely limited supply NES Classic. However, with all the nostalgia and enthusiasm the NES Classic gave, a news reported that the Mini SNES Classic Edition will be bigger and better compared to the original Edition.

The Controller

The SNES Classic comes with two controllers, which is a good thing for all gamers. Apparently, one big draw of Nintendo's tiny and nostalgia-laced consoles is its ability to relive its own glory days with friends and family. However, according to Mic, the NES Classic came with just one measly controller. If the user wanted to team up with a friend or a family member in order to play a game for two, he has to buy another controller separately.

On the other hand, SNES Classic edition's controller cables get an additional two feet measurement. Likewise, the SNES Classic console will make a small but significant improvement to the controllers. This is all possible because of the five-foot-long cables, instead of the very short three-foot cables on the NES Classic. Thanks to this enhancement, gamers can relax their eyes and neck while playing and sitting on the couch.

The Games

The NES Classic Edition is one of a kind and cool console, but there wasn't really any reason to purchase one if a buyer still owned the original NES Edition. The technology on NES wasn't up to supporting what the gamers are expecting out of modern games, according to Forbes.

The NES had a revolutionary game title that laid the framework, which is The Legend of Zelda. However, that one game can just satisfy the nostalgic feels of the gamers around the world. The SNES, on the other hand, has The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past, which is a paragon of top-down game design that's properly argued as one of the best Zelda games ever.

Both Nintendo consoles are worth the price because it can satisfy the fun. However, the main draws are history, curiosity, and nostalgia. The Mini SNES Classic Edition will be ready for purchase on September 29. It is the enhanced version of the NES Classic Edition and since Nintendo already examined the weak and strong points of the NES Classic Edition, they can apply the dos and don'ts on the Mini SNES.
