The Golden Age of 16-bit gaming is returning!
This morning, Nintendo officially announced the Super NES Classic Edition, which will be arriving on store shelves beginning 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.
And, if that's not exciting enough, included on the gaming console will be Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox game that was created, but never released.
