Release Date Everything Order

By Vic Hood Published 29/09/2017

It's no surprise UK pre-orders for the SNES Classic sold out within a day of its announcement back in June. Officially titled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the retro design and nostalgic list of games meant everyone wanted one and there's not long to wait until its release.

The arrival of the SNES Classic follows the sold-out success of the NES mini. Shipments of the NES mini could never meet the larger-than-expected demand for the system, with many units being snapped up and then sold on eBay.

Here's everything you need to know about the SNES Classic, including confirmed SNES Classic games, SNES Classic specs and whether you can still pre-order one for yourself in the UK.

SNES Classic games list

The micro-console will launch with 21 games pre-loaded onto the system.

Here's the full list of games included with the European and North American editions of the SNES Classic:


The original SNES console (PAL edition).

The pre-loaded games include the never before released Star Fox 2. The game was apparently scrapped by Nintendo due to the imminent release of the Nintendo 64 and producer Miyamoto's desire for a 'clean' break between 3D games on the SNES and the Nintendo 64. To unlock Star Fox 2, you will have to complete the first level of the original Star Fox.

The US, Australian and European editions of the SNES Classic will have the same list of games. However, the Japanese edition of the console has a different line-up of games from its US and European cousins.

The Japanese SNES Classic games line-up exclusively includes:

Whereas these five games are exclusive to the European and North American editions:


Kirby's Dream Course

Street Fighter 2' Turbo: Hyper Fighting

Super Castlevania 4

Super Punch-Out!!

Finally, regardless of region, all systems have several unique features when playing games. The headline is the ability to rewind gameplay - from seconds to minutes, depending on the title - as well as play in various display options and frames, as seen here:

SNES Classic controllers and specs

What does the SNES Classic look like?

There are different designs for the SNES Classic, depending on your region.

Let's be honest, the European version is the nicest. The European SNES Classic has a white and grey colour scheme, with the controller featuring the signature red, yellow, green and blue buttons. The European edition has rounded edges and a daintier appearance. This is the same design those in Australia and Japan will receive.

Those in the US will receive a different design altogether. The US version has a white, grey and purple colour scheme and has a much more rigid box-like shape.


The SNES Classic design available for North America.

Though the Japanese design is the same as the European version, the box is much more colourful and inviting.

What's included with the SNES Classic?

Included with the SNES Classic is one HDMI cable, one USB power cable and two wired SNES Classic controllers. However, for anyone outside of North America, an AC adapter for the USB cable, required to power the console, is not included and must be purchased separately. The console can easily connect to your TV using the HDMI cable.
