Yesterday, Nintendo officially revealed the SNES Classic Edition, the long-rumored successor to the NES Classic Edition. Back when it was still on the market, the NES Classic famously experienced severe shortages worldwide, so naturally, many fans expected that something similar would happen with the SNES Classic. However, in a recent statement to IGN, Nintendo confirmed that this won’t be the case, stating that they intend to produce “significantly more units” of the SNES Classic than they ever did for its predecessor.
In another statement to IGN, Nintendo also confirmed that the cord for the SNES Classic’s controller will be five feet long, which makes it two feet longer than the NES Classic’s. One of the biggest criticisms of the NES Classic was that its controller’s cord was much too short, so it’s certainly a relief to see that this issue will be rectified with the SNES Classic Edition.
The SNES Classic Edition launches on September 29th, and will cost $79.99.
