The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Edition was announced by Nintendo tonight, and pre-orders are already going quick.
The SNES Classic Mini has a September 29 release date, and launches with 21 games like Super Mario World and Super Mario Kart loaded on it.
It also has the never before released Star Fox 2 as well as Final Fantasy 3, Super Mario RPG and Earthbound – which all never had a UK release.
Pre-orders were opened on Amazon UK soon after the announcement was made by Nintendo tonight.
However, within minutes pre-order stock quickly sold out.
Game currently on its website is taking pre-orders, but looks to be experiencing an extremely high volume of traffic currently with the checkout page once the SNES Classic Mini has been added loading slowly.
The UK price listed for the SNES Classic Mini is £79.99.
Nintendo have reassured fans that they are making more SNES Classic Minis than last year’s NES Classic Mini.
That launched to huge demand, with any restocks being quickly snapped up.
NES Classic Mini units were often seen on eBay selling for more than quadruple the asking price of £59.99 as it was regularly sold out.
The console was discontinued this year, and can still be seen selling on auction sites listed for well over £200.
Fans who regularly used stock checker websites to pounce on any NES Classic Mini restocks will be hoping it won’t be the same case for the SNES Classic Mini.
