The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition, known as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe, and also colloquially as the SNES Mini or SNES Classic, is a dedicated home video game console released by Nintendo, which emulates the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The console, a successor to the NES Classic Edition, comes with twenty-one Super NES titles pre-installed, including the first official release of Star Fox 2. It was released in 2017.
The system features 720p/60 Hz HDMI display output and two controller ports; two wired SNES controllers are bundled with the system. The controller ports are hidden behind a faux front flap which is designed to appear like the original Super NES controller ports. Similarly to the predecessor’s controllers, the Super NES Classic Edition controllers have connectors that can be inserted into the Wii Remote, and be used to play Super NES games on the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console. The Wii’s Classic Controller is also compatible with the Super NES Classic Edition.
The console contains 21 built-in games. These include Star Fox 2, a sequel to Star Fox that had been cancelled near the very end of its development in 1996. Players can unlock Star Fox 2 on the SNES Classic upon clearing the first level of Star Fox.
The 21 Games on the console are as follows
- Contra 3: The Alien Wars
