As Nintendo has mentioned, "the golden age of 16-bit gaming returns" and Yoshi, Samus, and the Star Fox crew are ready for you to come and play! The Super NES Classic Edition system has the "original look and feel of the ’90s home console, only smaller".

But, the best part is that it comes loaded with 21 games such as Super Mario WorldFinal Fantasy III and notably, the previously unreleased Star Fox 2! It is going to be sold as of September 29th 2017 at participating Best Buys for 79.99 USD. 

The NES classic was super difficult to find when it was first released, so hopefully the SNES has a better stock. I mean, I know what I will be doing September 28th at 1AM... GETTING MY ASS IN LINE to buy one!
