The Super NES Classic Edition is a smaller version of Nintendo's Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), which followed the NES to Europe in 1992.

Nintendo have also said that they will increasing production for the SNES Mini to cope with the high demand, which will see the SNES run from Christmas through to 2018.

Speaking of SNES Classic, Nintendo also plans to bump up the number of units that will shipped due to excitement for the system. Perhaps even more exciting, Nintendo also said the NES Classic will return to stores in summer 2018, although further details are scarce. Previously, Nintendo had announced that the system would only be produced in 2017.
