NES Classic hack works on Nintendo's SNES Classic

The $80 Super NES Classic Edition is a flashback to Nintendo’s early-90s glory days but it lacks many modern features

Recognizing there's an appetite?

When you pick up the SNES Classic, you'll get the chance to fill in the gaps in your SNES gaming history. Oh yeah, there's an appetite.

Over the hour we played with the console together, she was drawn to the characters she recognized (Mario, yes; Samus Aran of "Super Metroid", not so much).

The Super NES Classic Edition system probably looks familiar.

"I was going to EB games and it was just after 10, and someone was coming out of the store, and they told three people approaching the store they were already sold out" said Darrell Parisian, one of many who went home empty-handed. But Nintendo is onto something with the introduction of the new Star Fox title.

It's likely that we will be seeing a new classic system every year for the few years. Nintendo has already faced a pre-order supply debacle, prompting a promise that the company would make sure there will be units on store shelves. Tapping into nostalgia like that is a brilliant move on Nintendo's part. "Once we do, our customers will be the first to know!" However, that is believed to be different than the actual Virtual Console. The Super NES Classic has no internet connection, so there is no way to compete online with friends. In fact, I played so long, a creeping ache led to worries about the onset of the dreaded "Nintendo thumb".

Target - Target unfortunately isn't selling systems online yet, but they do have a splash page up for the system. It's a great problem to have.

The SNES Classic Edition follows up the massively successful release of the Nintendo NES Classic last fall. There is no real answer because Nintendo is having a renaissance year and everyone wants in on the action. While not the company's biggest-selling console of all time, it was the victor of that generation of gaming consoles, outselling the Sega Genesis by nearly 20 million units thanks to stronger graphics and a lineup of games that included several featuring Mario and Donkey Kong.
