About this deal

In our home it's still not quite long enough to reach all the way to our couch, but it's much better than having to hover right in front of the television. With just 21 games it's inevitable that some are going to be disappointed, but the inclusion of Star Fox 2 is a win whichever way you look at it. The control pads were identical, and the console itself looked exactly like the original, only far smaller and with an HDMI port. They mention that it looks like the SNES from back in the day, it kept the original design, and is a very cool little machine.

Despite variations in how fun we found each of the games, almost every single one of them is a classic that in its own way went on to define the modern gaming landscape. The original Super Famicom had a different look in the USA than Europe and Japan, with a chunkier design, and Nintendo have followed these original lines to create the Classic version.You do this by selecting a save state and hitting the 'X' button, and you can then scroll back through your gameplay to pick a moment to retake control. The game was apparently scrapped by Nintendo due to the imminent release of the Nintendo 64 and producer Miyamoto's desire for a 'clean' break between 3D games on the SNES and the Nintendo 64. So the games are (mostly) all there and complete, and the tiny machine packs some punch when it comes to additions with it’s simple to use interface, but it isn’t perfect.

For instance, the Daily Telegraph noted that, “Fun for all the family was always the SNES’s mantra” and added that, “oh, how it holds up today. It’s tiny and, at 200g, it weighs only slightly more than the smartphone you carry around with you everywhere (or less, in the case of the iPhone 8 Plus). As for the software, gamers will be delighted to find 21 different titles that Nintendo have curated as the best of the 1990s, and the collection includes some bona fide classics. But having said that, the new Mini console has a collection of sure-fire winners that are absolute classics.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: SNES contains 21 pre-installed classic games, can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable.
