Apparently, the NES mini wasn't meant to be a permanent item-instead, it was scheduled to be a novelty sell during Christmas previous year. Last summer, it was able to correctly report the Nintendo Switch concept, calling it a "portable, handheld console with detachable controllers".
Sources speaking with Eurogamer today have claimed that Nintendo is now planning a SNES Mini for release during the holiday season this year, with development already well under way. Though as of now there is no information on the number of games, their names, or any other info, it is known that there's no shortage of classic titles on the system.
Further, starting production before announcement is necessary to have any hope of matching demand this time around. Be sure to bookmark this page as we'll update it as more information is revealed.
Gamers should be very excited to hear this news as the SNES was a console with much better games. This report follows on from news yesterday, which discovered that the Japanese company would be discontinuing manufacture of their highly popular NES Mini.

The government says Syrian warplanes struck an al-Qaida arms depot that contained chemical weapons. It is unclear whether they will ever be able to return to their homes.
The ever popular NES Classic was impossible for retailers to keep on the shelves.
Luckily, those who didn't score a mini NES haven't lost all luck. We expect the SNES Classic Mini to cost a similar price, if not the same. And just like it demonstrated during its launch, the NES Classic Edition only lasted for a brief period of time.
Nintendo's seemingly boneheaded move in killing off production of the NES Classic Edition is starting to make a little bit more sense. The video game maker may be setting their sights on a sequel later this year. It's unclear what games might appear on the purported SNES Classic Edition, but if it's legit you can bet that the trio above will be part of that console's lineup. Everyone focuses on firsties, thus we talk endlessly of Super Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda or Donkey Kong.
