The Rumours Are True – SNES Classic releases September 30 (NZ)
Just like with the NES classic (which sold out here in NZ very quickly), Nintendo seems to be playing on the nostalgic heart strings of 80’s/90’s kids with the announcement of the SNES Classic, which is due to be released here in NZ September 30.

Connection to your TV is by HDMI and the system includes two controllers (the NES Classic came with one). It is powered by a USB cable however here in NZ, the AC power adapter is sold separately (or use a phone/tablet charger?).
The SNES Classic is also fit in the palm of your hand small, making it not only great for satisfying your nostalgic urges, but great to store away when you finally get over the novelty (you know it’s true!).
