The new Nintendo Classic title is not for the NES Mini but for original SNES owners
While the Nintendo NES Classic Mini has only a set number of games that can be played on the small device, the original consoles do not have the same limitations.
Hackers have even found a way to upload and increase the number of titles that can be played on the hard-to-find gaming machine, however, you do run the risk of bricking your console.
Those who have worked out the means to do this can now put whatever games they wish to emulate, even those from other consoles.
However, there is one game that they won’t be able to get their hands on, at least, not yet.
That’s because a new Super Nintendo game is set to be released later this year.

It’s been almost 20 years but that hasn’t stopped those dedicated to the old SNES in their project to release a new fighting game for the 16-bit titan.
It’s being worked on by a group of former SNK developers, who are now putting the finishing touches to Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter.
Coming later in 2017, The Darkness Hunter will not be an officially sanctioned release by Nintendo but will be available to buy for the Super Famicom in Asia and Japan on April 8.
It will also be released in the United States, with an Amazon listing confirming a June 19 launch date.
“Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is a one-on-one SNES 2D fighting game developed by a team of ex-SNK staffers who had previously worked on the Samurai Shodown and The King of Fighters series,” the official Amazon description explains.
