Nintendo is releasing the Super NES Classic Edition on September 29th

The SNES (which stands for Super Nintendo Entertainment System ) was known for its strong lineup of games.

The SNES Classic Edition will come with two SNES-style wired controllers, just like the NES Mini did a year ago.

The Super NES Classic will also be capable of saving where you left off in all 21 games, making starting games from scratch a thing of the past. A USB wall wart to power the SNES Mini Classic - if your TV doesn't have enough free USB ports - will cost you $19.95. Then the SNES Classic was followed by the NES Classic, which was launched past year but unfortunately was discontinued from this April.

Classic games Donkey Kong and Super Mario World will be available on Nintendo's new retro mini gaming console.

Will the SNES Mini be as hard to find as its predecessor the NES Mini?

For some time, fans of old games have been creating game ROMs - read-only memory - that emulated the old titles so they could be played on a modern PC or other device. Some of the fan favorites are The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Yoshi Island, Final Fantasy III, Earthbound, and more.

Along with the classic titles, the Japanese gaming company will also bundle in a game from the original SNES era that was never released - Star Fox 2. According to Nintendo, players will need to complete the first level of Star Fox in order to unlock the sequel.

This time round though, there will be several cosmetic differences to the console, depending on where you buy it from. While Europe and the U.S. get a box that is similar in design of the NES Classic, the Super Famicom Classic comes in a more graphic artistic box. It follows the NES Classic that went on sale late previous year but was discontinued in April citing limited resources.

The new console will officially be named "Super NES Classic Edition" and will come stacked with classic video games built into the system (that means no cartridges to blow into!). "At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year".

Early this morning, Nintendo announced the SNES Mini Classic, a retro-styled miniature console with 21 game preloaded.
