The SNES classic was announced yesterday. I feel like I should care but I kind of only care.
You see, the NES Classic was such a mess, that no one really got one. After only a few months, it was completely discontinued. It’s like Nintendo hates money and has some stake in underground scalping.
Annoying as it may be, Nintendo is claiming there will be many more SNES Classics hitting shelves than the NES classic. Great, but I feel like Nintendo always makes an announcement like that.
I walked into a brick and mortar the other day and still couldn’t find a Nintendo Switch. Case, point, and digression.
I totally want an SNES Classic, and I assume any Nintendo fan who played or enjoyed SNES games will want one, especially since it’s a pain in the behind to set up retro consoles on new televisions, but Nintendo really has to make enough stock for more than a small town in rural Montana this time.
It’s completely unfair to make consumers search day and night, town to town, in an era where websites ship mass produced goods to buyer doorsteps within two days or less. Continuing their dishonest production strategies might sustain financial damage and wither away any remaining customer goodwill Nintendo has left.
If E3 2017 is any indication that new blood is storming the halls of Nintendo, then maybe, just maybe, we can trust that they’ve learned their lessons and will actually accommodate all of their fans, big and small.
Check out the list of the bundled games below and tell me you don’t want one of these pups.
The SNES Classic will be made available September 29th, 2017.
