Super NES Classic coming September 29 with 21 games including never-before-released Star Fox 2

Here we go again.

Nintendo has announced they will release the Super NES Classic Edition microconsole on September 29. Priced at $79.99, the Super NES Classic Edition will include two controllers and 21 games, including the never-before-released Star Fox 2.

Star Fox 2 was originally scheduled to launch for the Super NES in 1995, but Nintendo cancelled it due to the then-upcoming launch of the Nintendo 64. The game was nearly complete at the time of its cancellation.

“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”

While many Nintendo fans have likely already resigned themselves to never obtaining one, the Super NES Classic Edition lives up to its name with an absolute murderer’s row of titles. In addition to Star Fox 2, the microconsole will include Contra III: The Alien Wars, EarthBound, Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, Final Fantasy III, and many more:
