Nintendo has finally officially announced the follow-up to the now discontinued NES Classic of 2016: the miniature Super Nintendo Classic. News of the release follows leaks from earlier this year regarding the next installment of Nintendo’s Classic console kits.

The SNES Classic, much like its predecessor, is an HDMI-supported plug-and-play system with a library of more than 20 games from its era built-in. One of these includes Star Fox 2, an oddity among the collection due to having a botched release to its claim to fame. It was an unreleased and incomplete game when it was leaked and dumped following its cancellation near the end of the SNES’s lifecycle. Consequently, a title that seems to be absent from the SNES Classic library is Chrono Trigger, which is arguably one of the most notable releases for the system.
