Nintendo Announces Super NES Classic Edition

We all knew it was coming and now Nintendo has officially announced it; coming later this year, the SNES Classic Edition will be headed to retail shelves on September 29th. The mini system, which contains 21 pre-installed classic games and can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable, will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. The system will even come with the unreleased Starfox 2!
