Rumor: Nintendo To Release SNES Mini This Year

It looks like Nintendo might be releasing another miniature retro console.

According to Eurogamer‘s Tom Phillips,

“Nintendo will follow up its smash hit NES microconsole with a mini version of the SNES.”

Additionally, Phillips states that production on the product has already begun, and that it’s planned for a holiday 2017 release.

This rumor comes only days after the company announced that the NES Classic Mini has been discontinued.

If true, this is great news. Along with Nintendo’s modern consoles, it’s a smart business move to release a cheaper, retro console that will attract gamers who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s.

Do you buy into this rumor? If so, do you plan to pick up an SNES Mini? Sound off in the comments section below.
