Nintendo releasing SNES Classic console with 21 games

MANILA, Philippines – After the successful launch of the NES Classic console last year, Nintendo is going to release another console that now mimics the much-loved Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or SNES.

The SNES Classic console, like the NES Classic, looks like a smaller version of the original device it's based on. It will be released on September 29 for $80.

The SNES Classic will come with 21 games:

Kotaku adds the SNES Classic will come with an HDMI cable, a charging cable, and a pair of SNES controllers with 5-foot cables. The cables are about two feet longer than that of the ones on the NES Classic Controller.

More information is available on Nintendo's SNES Classic website. –
