    Yeah, the rumour going round is that they ended the production of the NES Classic in favour of getting ready for SNES Classic production.

    It almost definitely won't have Star Fox and Yoshi's Island as those are Super FX games and they've never been released on Virtual Console because the legal complications surrounding that chip. Yoshi's Island was only on the VC as the inferior GBA version.

    ...because they can only make one retro console at a time... ;) ;) :agreed: :agreed:

    :lol:

    Boo to no Star Fox. It had spectacular graphics for a 16-bit machine. The N64 version looked better, but not as much better as it should have.

    Anyway, doesn't matter, since there won't be any, and they'll just discontinue the SNES Classic mini before any are available, so they can ramp up production of the N64 classic.

    Well, they're also doubling Switch production, and they've only got so much capacity.

    The joke was always that the Super FX chip was so powerful, the SNES was just a box you plugged it in to.
