It is official, NES Classic Mini is going to be discontinued. And taking up its place will be its younger brother, the SNES Classic Mini. But why will Nintendo stop supporting the NES Classic Edition all of a sudden?
The famous gaming system from the 90s will be revived after its more than two decades of sleep. Childhood nostalgia will hit another generation for the revival of Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Nintendo will be releasing a SNES Classic Edition it will be available this year. Now here's a catch, Nintendo can double the price of a single unit of SNES Classic Mini.
There are speculations that the NES Class Mini is just an accidental success. Fans are being been baffled by Nintendo's sudden killing of the NES Classic Mini to the point that it is just an experiment, as reported by CNET. The report stated that the NES Classic Mini is just a novelty experiment, testing the current market for retro gaming revival. And it worked, following the initial success of the NES Classic. Now, what is Nintendo's plan? A sequence of retro-gaming revival.
SNES Classic Mini is speculated to become more successful than the NES Classic Mini because of a better game lineup. Sure, "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is fueling Nintendo Switch, but the early Zelda title for SNES, "Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" is a different experience. Retro gamers and players that want Nostalgia will add up for the future demand of the SNES Classic Mini.
With the great list of games available for (re)launching lineup, the future price for the SNES could be doubled, as reported by Forbes. The price will not be as much as the Nintendo Switch but with NES Classic Mini's small markup for $60, it would certainly be higher than that. The price could be around $100 to $12 and with higher forecasted demand, Nintendo will have another sales engine alongside the Nintendo Switch.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
