Super Nintendo Classic Coming in September

The never-released ‘Star Fox 2’ is among the 21 games that will be available.

It’s time for round two.

Nintendo has announced it will be bringing the Super Nintendo back to life with Super Nintendo Classic, a revival of the 1990s console that will include 21 games when it launches Sept. 29. It will retail for $79.99 and comes with two wired controllers (just like the old days, before you had to buy extra controllers).

Among the big surprises: a never-before released Star Fox 2 is in the mix.

Here’s the full list of games, via Nintendo’s website:

Contra III: The Alien Wars

Donkey Kong Country

EarthBound

F-Zero

Final Fantasy III

Kirby Super Star

Kirby’s Dream Course

Mega Man X

Secret of Mana

Star Fox

Star Fox 2

Super Castlevania IV

Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts

Super Mario Kart

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Super Mario World

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island

Super Metroid

Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

The Super Nintendo launched in the United States on Aug. 23, 1991 — and wasn’t quite an instant smash, but grew to become one of the most beloved video game systems of all time.

Its revival comes on the heels of last year’s Nintendo Classic, which included 30 games from the 1980s console. It quickly sold out, with retail shortages sparking pandemonium among buyers. The system is no longer available in stores.

The Super Nintendo Classic is compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories.
