Nintendo has finally confirmed the SNES mini.
SNES mini – officially titled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System – will launch in the UK on 29th September.

Its arrival follows the sold-out success of the NES mini, shipments of which could never meet the larger-than-expected demand for the system. Many units were snapped up and then sold on eBay for a lot mre than retail price.
Hopefully Nintendo will increase its shipment size for the SNES mini – and keep it stocked longer than just until Christmas. Although that seems unlikely as it isnalready sold out at the likes of Amazon
