I've always scoffed at the idea that the SNES Classic was gonna come out this year, but it's apparently true.

In edition the US version marks the debut of the long lost Star Fox 2!  It also comes with the SNES version of Yoshi's Island and Classic Star Fox which have never gotten VC releases.

It also comes with 2 SNES controllers, however unlike it's predecessor it'll set you back $80.

Either way I'm preordering this thing whenever I'm able to, I cannot miss this one.

I want to get this but if the NES Classic is any indication, that won't be happening. I just hope they release StarFox 2 in other ways as well.

Yeah me too, Reggie did say they're gonna produce significantly more than the NES Classic, but it's only gonna run for the rest of 2017.

An impressive list, but I already have/own the majority of those games. Well, except for Star Fox 2, which I really want XD

I certainly want it since I don't have the vast majority of these games.  XD

Done this morning.
Super Mario RPG finally makes its PAL debut in a physical capacity, which I'm getting it for. Link to the Past, Super Metroid among a few others are just icing on the cake.
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

Even if it's 20 bucks more I would say it's a much better value.  I mean, those are some meaty games, they'll keep you busy.  Plus the whole second-controller-in-the-box thing.

But yeah, I'd just as soon have those on a Switch Virtual Console.  My TV is out of HDMI ports, and my 2-year-old will not be kind to those controller cords.

As for supply, well, they can't very well do WORSE than the NES Classic, now can they?  This will probably still be hard to find but just less abysmally so.
