There's also the "Nintendo Relaunching the NES" thread:
http://diehardwolfers.areyep.com/viewtopic.php?t=7494

This video is of "Nintendo May Launch An SNES Classic Edition Holiday 2017."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TNmbXDerac&t=12s

I might buy one.

I don't expect this one to be magnificent. I expect it to be a decent emulation console with a few gems of games to keep it from being a complete waste of money. A handful of games that are extremely cheap (or even free) to license are sure to make their way onto here ... especially if they're very simple to emulate. I imagine the sound will be its major flaw; SNES emulators are notorious for flawed sound emulation with high-profile games.

Tricob, in my opinion Killer Instinct has the best sound of any Super NES game Iíve played. If you bought it in 1995, the box came with the Killer Cuts audio CD. Surprisingly, I think that the audio CD is great even though it wasnít advertised that I know of.

I remember being very pleased with Killer Instinct's presentation as a whole. The sound, the graphics ... I liked it all. But the older I get, the more "retro" I become. I'm even worse with the SNES gamepad than I was ten years ago, and I was terrible back then. I imagine I'll have to play Rockfall for a while just to get into the "feel" of the SNES again; that game doesn't use half of the buttons on the gamepad, so the readjustment period won't be as bad. And it's a homebrew, so there's nothing illegal about downloading it. Smile

I had forgotten to post on June 26th that from the newsfeed on Facebook, I clicked on The English American link that The Super NES Mini will be launched on September 29th with 20 of the commercial games and the new release of Star Fox 2: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/26/nintendo-is-releasing-the-super-nes-classic-edition-on-september-29th/

If somebody knows French, the French SNES Classic Mini apparently looks either like The Super Famicom or model 2. In June, I saw a Spanish Mexican video where their SNES Classic Mini also looks like either the Super Famicom or model 2. I would have linked you to that video link, but itís now too hard to find. I might buy The American SNES Classic Mini.

The rumor is that the corporate offices in Nintendo of Japan didnít want a lot of The NES Classic Mini mass produced because they thought that it was distracting people from buying NES games on The Wii virtual console or Switch virtual console. I donít know if thatís going to be same with The SNES Classic Mini.

Iíve completed the first Star Fox game without cheats. Apparently Nintendo canceled Star Fox 2 because they thought that it was distracting people from Star Fox 64 and/or because too many elements from Star Fox 2 were in Star Fox 64.

I wonder if they'll have Wolfenstein or Doom on there. Probably not.

Doom would be more likely than Wolfenstein 3-D. Wolfenstein 3-D SNES was not well-received commercially.

It would be hilarious if they re-released SNES Wolfenstein. Smile

Why would anybody buy the expensive Street Fighter II reproduction cartridge when it comes with a warning that it could cause the Super Nintendo to overheat or even catch fire!?: http://uk.pcmag.com/news/90963/capcom-is-re-releasing-street-fighter-ii-on-the-snes

Yesterday, Pat The NES Punk did a review of The Super Nintendo Wolfenstein 3D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG_ZeUzildo
At 8:41 in the video, thereís a Japanese swastika. Years ago, I once saw a map of Shizuoka prefecture in Japan. I think that Mount Fuji is on the Shizuoka border. Anyways, the map was in Japanese and if you hold your eyes still enough then you could see a swastika.

I've recently ordered for myself coolbaby NES HDMI console (only 25 bucks for 600 nes classics).

But I'm also considering making "all-platform" console using RetroPi (retro system for Raspberry Pi). Will cost a bit more - but include ALL retro systems (and also be smaller/more compact, and editable/updatable). Seems to be a better choice, though setting up is a bit more complicated (but there are detailed youtube videos and guide step by step). I know guys on we can make such for you, will cost more though.

Anyone tried out a proto of the SNES Mini one yet?

Most of my retro game wishes are portable-related; A portable 2600 handheld (custom-made, not commercial) is included on the list, along with a handful of hard-to-find GBC cartridges and a GBA piece of hardware that supports Flash Drives.
