Super NES Classic Edition is now planned to ship from September 29 until the end of calendar year 2017.
The NES Classic, released in fall 2016, was discontinued earlier this year. The controller ports are different as well.More news: Lake Fire near Castaic Lake in Southern California
All of these games would be considered classics by anyone's standards, and some of them in particular - Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete.
In a statement he gave to Time, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé revealed just how bewildered they were by the whole thing.
The statement to The Verge reads: "At the this time we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year".
Based on the playable ROMs, the 3D graphics in the intro video are borderline Nintendo 64 quality (or at least a promising preview of the N64), and the gameplay is an expanded and more open version of the original Star Fox (as seen in the footage above).
