Nintendo has confirmed that the SNES version of their Classic Mini console will arrive on 29 September 2017 with a suggested price of around £80. The US and Australian release dates are the only ones confirmed so far.

The first Classic Edition NES Mini Console shipped roughly 2.3 million units, before Nintendo decided to tug at its short chords and discontinue production. While announcing the follow up SNES version, with considerably longer chords - both physically and in terms of promised production lifespan, Nintendo has decided to remain vague on many of the new product's details.
