A Super Nintendo Classic with 21 games is coming this year

Want to play Link to the Past or Super Mario Kart again? Well good news.

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.
