The SNES Mini, a Nintendo-developed emulator containing 21 classic SNES games, is available for pre-order – if you’re quick enough.
Rumoured months ago, the mini console follows the NES Classic Mini, which contained 30 classic 8-bit Nintendo games. Games bundled into the SNES Mini include Super Mario World, Earthbound, Donkey Kong, and the never-released Star Fox 2. Get in quick, though, because it’s selling out fast.

Pre-orders ran out after a matter of minutes on most major sites, followed by dozens of resellers advertising their consoles on eBay. Most are at least double the original price, with some asking for as much as £300 ($350) compared to the £80 ($100) most retailers are charging.
While there are seemingly no consoles left to reserve, Nintendo has announced that there will be a substantial amount more SNES Minis than there were NES Minis. Last year the console was the hottest present for Christmas, but a lack of stock left most people missing out. Nintendo promises the same won’t happen this time around.
The SNES Mini comes in at a higher price than the NES and contains nine less games, but the good news is that it will come packed in with a second controller. This is hardly surprising considering the inclusion of Mario Kart.
Here’s a list of all the games bundled into the console:
- Contra III: The Alien Wars
- Donkey Kong Country
- Final Fantasy III
- Kirby Super Star
- Kirby’s Dream Course
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Mega Man X
- Secret of Mana
- Star Fox
