We go hands-on with the company's new Super Nintendo Classic Edition, complete with 21 built-in retro games.

"We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition", said Nintendo. It comes loaded with 20 plus classic Super NES games, including versions of Super Mario, the Legend of Zelda, and Donkey Kong. While the PlayStation Network has tried to import some of its best titles to the online store, that really only works if you have a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. As a bonus, the game package also includes a never-released sequel to "Star Fox", one of the first three-dimensional games developed by Nintendo.

Nintendo wound up shipping 2.3 million NES Classic Edition consoles worldwide before it was discontinued in April, and 1.5 million of those were sold sometime before February 1st, 2017. "If you wanted a system and were willing to get to a store kind of early, you likely got one". If you find that you need to reference a manual as you're playing, you can pull up the manuals using a QR code that's hosted on the SNES Classic's menu.
