As a surprise to few, Nintendo has finally revealed the Super NES Classic Edition. It was hard to believe Nintendo wouldn’t eventually announce something considering the immense success of the NES Classic Edition last year. Even though many were left unhappy with how Nintendo dealt with their NES Classic shortage, people have been waiting to see arguably one of the best Nintendo consoles ever get the same Classic treatment.
