The new system comes with 21 pre-loaded games, an HDMI cable for compatibility with new high-definition TVs, one USB charging cable with an AC adapter, and two controllers.

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. With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.
