Hopefully Nintendo will have the supply chain difficulties that they experienced with their NES Classic model resolved by the launch of this product, but based on the launch of their Switch system, I highly doubt it.

Geeky Daddy will keep you up-to-date on product availability. The unit is rumored to retail for $80 and will include two remotes and the following games:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars (Never played this one, but feel like the original is so far superior)
  • Donkey Kong Country (Love this game – I spent hours playing this one back in the day!)
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Same with Contra – the original was superior until the launch of the N64)
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox (OMG, OMG, OMG – YES!!!)
  • Star Fox 2 (OMG again – this was never originally released. Let’s hope it’s not a flop like other sequels tend to be)
  • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart (Always a classic)
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World (I played this recently and forgot how hard it is – were we just better gamers when we were kids?)
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • Yoshi’s Island

I really would have hoped for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but at least StarFox is on the list!
