Although it was heavily rumoured, it's now official - Nintendo is making a SNES Classic Mini in time for the Christmas market.

The SNES Classic Mini will be available here in Ireland from September 29th of this year at a price of €84.99 and will include 21 pre-installed games - including one very special game - Starfox 2. Veteran Nintendo players will remember Starfox and the aborted sequel, Starfox 2, which was almost released but then abandoned when Nintendo switched resources to the Nintendo 64.
