Let's file this under "Some of the least surprising news possible."

Nintendo announced a Super Nintendo Classic Edition Monday – a follow-up to the crazy successful NES Classic, which was discontinued after months of sellouts.

The SNES Classic will be out Sept. 29 for $79.99.

The big question: Which games?

The SNES comes with 21 titles, including the never-released Star Fox 2, as well as Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart,Link to the Past, and Donkey Kong Country. Here's the full list:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!! 
  • Yoshi’s Island

And not to brag for our coworker Dana Wessel, but he actually nailed some of these in his list of titles that "must be included" on a SNES Classic.

The SNES Classic comes with the mini console, two wired controllers (to get that couch multiplayer going), an HDMI cable, USB charger, and the plug-in.
