Of course this will look like the European and Japanese version of the SNES with its rounded corners and colourful face buttons.

Like it did with the original NES a year ago, Nintendo has announced plans to revive the Super Nintendo as a mini, plug-and-play game console preloaded with a handful of fan-favorite SNES games.

The system ships with two wired SNES Classic controllers, as well as an HDMI cable, USB charging cable and AC adapter. More news as it develops.

Based on the original console launched in 1991, a miniaturized version is coming back September 29 or $79.99, which contains 21 pre-installed classic games like "Super Mario World", "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" and "Star Fox 2" - the latter something Nintendo never actually released. It'll also feature Star Fox 2, a game that had been developed in the 1990s but was never released.

The full list of games available on the SNES Classic is embedded below.

"While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it", said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

The SNES Classic will function just like its predecessor, the NES Classic, in that you won't be able to use any of your old SNES games with it - just the ones that are loaded inside already. Having two controllers will make it easy for two players to dive into multiplayer action right away.
