Nintendo Offers Classic Arcade Games for Sale with a New Mini SNES

After years of limited options, lovers of classic video games are becoming spoiled for choice. The latest offering of classic arcade games for sale comesfrom Nintendo with the launch of a classic edition of the SNES.

For less than $80 you'll get a fantastic 16-bit gaming console that looks just like the 1991 original, only smaller. In fact, it fits into the palm of your hand. You'll also get two classic controllers and 21 of your favorite retro SNES games.

In fact, you’ll get 20 of your favorite classic games plus a bonus. This is because Star Fox 2 is included in the SNES Classic Edition bundle in addition to Star Fox. While you may have played Star Fox 2 over the years, Nintendo never actually released it. As a result, this will be the first official version of Star Fox 2, but you will have to beat the first level of Star Fox to unlock it.
