The company had previously explained that the NES Classic was never meant to be an ongoing, long-term product so it was only a matter of time before it was discontinued.
While information on the mini-console is thin on the ground, early rumours suggest it could arrive later this year. According to Eurogamer, "Sources close to the company (Nintendo) have confirmed...[that] development of the device is already under way". It would retain a similar plug-and-play setup, and come loaded with some selection of the most popular games from the Super NES era.
The NES Classic debuted only six months ago and included 30 popular games from the NES. Making matters even more frustrating, Nintendo announced last week that they were discontinuing production. Assume you would've loved it if you actually got your hands on one? We got this signal a year ago with the NES, and now we're receiving it again with the upcoming SNES. Games like Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Castlevania IV, Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, and Earthbound are all obvious contenders. We can nearly forgive Nintendo for underestimating the demand of the NES Classic Edition, but there is no excuse for a repeat disappointment (for gamers) this time around. Eurogamer says the NES Mini wasn't "given a reprieve". And just like it demonstrated during its launch, the NES Classic Edition only lasted for a brief period of time.

What do you think about the SNES Mini?
But, the company could come out with another miniature gaming console this year - a mini-version of its SNES console. Don't console - excuse the pun - us with a handful of games, think about adding features like Wi-Fi, more storage options, and access to a retro storefront with quality content? Super Mario World pretty much has to be there, but the rest of the lineup is an open book.
