Though the revived NES has now been discontinued, Eurogamer reported (from unidentified sources) that Nintendo will be following it up with what they are calling the SNES Mini. The system would likely arrive in time for the Christmas period, with the development already under way.
It also reported that plans for the SNES revival are the reason for the discontinuation of the highly popular NES Classic Edition. Nintendo has said that it didn’t intend for the NES Classic to be anything more than a holiday 2016 novelty product, though customers will be hoping they have changed their mind about the upcoming SNES, if it is really coming.
There’s reason to be excited for a new SNES, with classics like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, Chrono Trigger, and Super Metroid all available on the original console. It is expected that Nintendo will keep the plug-and-play aspect of the NES Classic for the new SNES Mini, allowing users to play pre installed games.
