Nintendo SNES Classic Mini: Price, games, stock updates and more

On the right side of the law, Nintendo has already started releasing some classic games as downloads for its more modern hardware, with more expected to come for the Switch console.

SNES is now available, having shipped to those who managed to pre-order it prior to release day.

Even though video and game rental stores were everywhere in the 1990s, they didn't carry every SNES game you wanted to get your hands on.

The SNES Classic Edition is out today, and is probably now en route to those lucky enough to have scored a pre-order, and being picked up by bleary-eyed fans who set up early at game store locations around the world.

Hope you're all enjoying your SNES Classics, that I'm not-at-all jealous and bitter of.

On a June trip to Nashville, Price also had lunch with his son, who lives in that city, according to Politico . Wednesday saw the president saying that he was "not happy" with Price's use of charter jets.

The new console is smaller than the original version. Plus, this one comes fully loaded with 21 games!

The good news is that 8bitdo is releasing a wireless controller for the SNES Classic Edition, which looks nearly like the native one but with a slightly grayer face. Not only does it compile some of the greatest games of all-time, but it also has the previously-unreleased Star Fox 2. (You'll need to play the first level of the original "Star Fox" game to unlock the sequel). While it's not possible to add or remove games from the system, with such a well-rounded variety of games, you shouldn't have to. I can just see the Nintendo top brass sitting around a conference table (shaped like a 1up mushroom) asking each other "how many different ways can we sell these games we made over two decades ago?" Another noticeable design difference is that the Classic doesn't have a cartridge slot because, well, you don't need cartridges to play these days. Let us know in comments!

Here's a taste of what Caroline and I experienced playing the Super NES Classic Edition.

All in all, the SNES Classic's launch has been infinitely smoother than its predecessor's, and your chances of picking one up (if you haven't already) are looking pretty good.
