The discontinuation of the NES Mini console earlier this month was likely due to the fact that Nintendo is in the process of developing a similar plug-and-play system for the Super Nintendo. The Super Nintendo mini is still in the process of being designed and will be ready for purchase in December in the US.
Its prececessor, the NES Classic Edition (commonly referred to as the NES Mini) sold over 1.5 Million worldwide and became nearly impossible to find at most retailers in North America due to short supplies and opportunistic scalpers, some of whom went on to list the $60 console online for up to 10 times its original value.
The NES Classic came with 30 built-in games, so it would be fair to assume that the SNES Classic would have a similar number of Super Nintendo titles. Sadly, some excellent Super Nintendo games have emulation issues that have led to their omission from the Virtual Console (Yoshi’s Island) and others have copyright issues that would require Nintendo to jump some legal hurdles (Final Fantasy II & III).
