The SNES Classic Edition is SO five minutes ago.
By Robert Marrujo:: Having trouble getting hold of an SNES Classic Edition? Fret not, dear readers, as hardware manufacturer Analogue has you covered. Its new Super Nt is an HD SNES clone and is available for preoder right now. Check out this gallery of the unit and its four color variants:
The unit is exquisitely designed, perfectly mirroring the look of SNES while also differentiating itself by being sleeker and smaller than that console ever was. Super Nt doesn't come with a controller, but it is compatible with 8Bitdo wireless pads and original SNES controllers. It's also worth noting that the SNES Mouse and Mouse Pad can be used, so if you have copies of Mario Paint and Sim City, you're really in luck!
Super Nt retails for $189.99 and can be preordered right here. The console works with the full range of SNES and Super Famicom titles, as well as Super Game Boy, which opens the entire Game Boy library to players. It connects via HDMI, so expect "lag-free, zero signal degradation video," according to Analogue. It's an awesome way of experiencing the joys of Super Nintendo without having to own an original system or an SNES Classic.
Of course, finding the original games isn't the easiest thing in the world, but it's far from impossible thanks to the wonders of Internet marketplaces and even GameStop, which has begun to sell classic titles via its website and some of its brick and mortar locations.
