    After the failure that was the NES Classic, I’m surprised Nintendo is still trying to re-release their old consoles. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense tbh.

  • Squirrel on crack cocaine.

    What’s the point. Scalpers will buy them all up and resell them for a stupid amount of money. Just get the eShop up and running on the Switch for goodness sake.

  • Robert Goode

    What failure? Everything I read said it was a smashing success, even with the poor choice of games included. With the second controller already included, and a smaller number but FAR better choice of games, I sense this will be a huge success.

  • Christian Beach

    The NES Classic was a failure because of high demand and literally zero supply. You couldn’t find one ANYWHERE. Nintendo didn’t even manufacture anymore after the first wave or two, and it was discontinued within 7 or 8 months.

  • Clément Dufour

    it wasn’t a failur, they choose not to make too many and get the switch out too fast

  • John Horsley

    I’m really tired of re-releases. I wish Nintendo would just make a multi-platform eShop where you can purchase individual “classic” games and play them on whatever Nintendo system you like. You could access them with your Nintendo account. I’m a fan of the remastered games like Windwaker and the like.

  • Robert Goode

    It was *always* intended as a limited production product. Three months and that would be it, but they added onto the time when they saw it was more popular than expected. It’s not like standard toys or games where it’s produced for a year before stopping.

  • Josh Dull

    I’d be excited if I knew myself and others could easily buy one at a decent price. Which isn’t going to happen.

  • Kaine Morrison

    I wasn’t going to get it. I had no interest in it.
    Then they said that Star Fox 2 was on it.
    That makes it an “Insta-Buy!”

  • Bacon Informer

    Star Fox 2…
    I think my wallet just dropped $80.

  • I didn’t get a NES classic, but I may try to get this…

  • asmith

    The Wii U had 3/4 of the games listed. So it’s a good chance that the Switch is going to get most if not all of these eventually.

  • The Gamer of Legend

    Star Fox 2 will finally be finished after about 22 years. Chalk up Star Fox 2 as being the longest game to ever be in development in gaming history. 22 years, Miyamoto? Why? I could of sworn you said that you wished Fox McCloud was more popular like the other IPs. If that’s the case, why wait to release it on a console that…*facepalm* has a limited production window and scalpers who are willing to resell the console for ten times the price, which would give the product more attention from those that can’t get is right away and those who have the opportunity to get it.

    I may or may not get this, but if these games end up on the Switch, I don’t know what I’ll do really. But somebody make a meme out of this.

    Miyamoto: I wish Star Fox was more popular… So let’s finish that cancelled Star Fox game from over 20 years ago and put it on a console that most people won’t be able to get there hands on.

    Meh, it was worth a shot. Regardless, we’ll see what happens next. I’m willing to stay positive about this.

  • Steve Gomez

    When is the Pre-Order Date???

  • emeralda1

    Why so few games? They don’t even have Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy 4 AKA US ff2 on there… Gay

  • Thomas Foolery

    Oh wow, I never thought Nintendo would ever release Star Fox 2. lol

  • Chance LeBoeuf

    If they really wanted to, Nintendo could create the video game equivalent of Netflix with their expansive, and fondly remembered back catalog. Instead, they just want you to buy and re-buy all this crap over and over again. And the worst part is that they don’t make these very easily accessible to begin with.

    The eShop was complete trash as they conservatively drip fed these games out onto the store with so many titles still not on there. You might as well seek old copies, or resort to emulators because Nintendo doesn’t give much reason to keep investing. At some point it feels like it’s just wasting money.

  • Chance LeBoeuf

    Why don’t you stop playing defense for Nintendo when it comes to fulfilling supply and demand quotas because it’s just embarrassing how many times Nintendo has done this. They’ve had to publicly apologize multiple times over the past decade. It’s so stupid that Nintendo is still acting like they don’t know what to do when the thing they hope becomes popular becomes popular.

    This department must be just run by complete idiots.

  • blistified

    you know what he means, dont play coy!

  • Christian Beach

    He must be pretty happy I guess XD

  • Chris Jagucki

    It’s only a matter of time until the N64 Classic comes next year.

  • Greenbeans

    $80 for 21 quarter century year old ROM files, and Chrono Trigger somehow isn’t one of them. And it’s a holiday only item to boot. Proof people will buy any paperweight Nintendo slaps their name on.

  • Greenbeans

    $80 for a 20 year old unfinished SNES ROM. Nice.

  • Greenbeans

    Oh look, 80 bucks!

    I just saved you from a fatal mistake. You’re welcome.

  • Greenbeans

    What is the benefit of being *always* intended as a limited release product?

    Quit trying to defend unjustifiable incompetence.

  • Kaine Morrison

    Actually, it was confirmed to be finished completely and then shelved.

  • Greenbeans

    Sorry, $80 for an already long ago leaked and playable ROM file.

  • Kaine Morrison

    The finished game has never been released. The current roms are early builds.

  • Greenbeans

    I’m not going to waste my time calling you wrong. I can play the complete ROM right now.

  • Chance LeBoeuf

    I’m starting to doubt just how much of an issue scalpers really are because it almost seems like another thing to blame before blaming the real idiots responsible for you not getting what you want; And that’s Nintendo. Scalpers would never be an issue if they would just, you know, actually meet the quota for the supply and demand.

    And even if they limit production again for no real reason, this is not really worth your 80 bucks anyway unless you have to money to spare just for novelty purposes. Scalpers seem to depend on people who just wanna waste their money. Pretty sure most can survive without this. You wanna play Star Fox 2, the ROM will be floating around the net soon enough.

    Even the rest of the games (and more) can already be played through other means and I’m not just talking about emulators. So unless you just wanna keep buying and rebuying this stuff, save your money. 80 bucks can pay a bill, or get you a lot of pizza.

  • The Gamer of Legend

    I’m not sure if this is directed at me per say, but I do agree with what you are saying almost completely, In the post I was kind of joking, as I don’t really partake in these ordeals anymore(it was like four years ago when I stopped because .

  • The Gamer of Legend

    I’m not sure if this was 100% directed at me, but I agree with this point anyway. I just found it funny that Nintendo is trying to gain traction for this by literally having people throw their wallets away, while also making it valuable because Star Fox 2, a game that was previously cancelled, will be sold with it. This drives people nuts and will do anything to get a piece of gaming history.

    I just found it weird. Nintendo making things popular and “hyped” by exploiting their fans and what those fans are willing to do to get something of upper value from the company. If this ends up not meeting expectations, I’m sure Star Fox 2 will end up on Virtual Console some way or another.

    I’m not planning on buying it, but I think being optimistic about the whole thing is also appropriate. I was pointing out that Nintendo knows how to gain attention for a product in the weirdest ways possible at times, and this is one of them.

    Regardless of what I said though, your point is a good point. Buying this is like paying 80 bucks for a single game because you already have the others on the original system or virtual console. So I see your point.

    Also, I’m sorry about the edited/deleted comment earlier, it was a typing error on my part.

  • Chance LeBoeuf

    More or less was trying to talk in a general sense, but I should have worded it better. My bad if it was confusing.

  • Thomas Foolery

    Well, Nintendo fans did buy empty Splatoon 2 boxes…lol.

  • I don’t bother anymore, it’s sold out long before I can even get the chance to pre-order it.

  • XNinja169

    These are nothing compared to a raspberry pie 3.
