Nintendo Classic Mini SNES is reportedly in development
Nintendo Classic Mini may have been prematurely sent to the scrapheap, but a follow-up is reportedly already in the works.
The Mini NES retro reboot was officially discontinued last week, as Nintendo told fans that stores would receive their final shipments in April.
But it's not all bad news, because Nintendo is reportedly working on the SNES Classic Mini.
The miniature SNES is currently being developed ahead of its Christmas release date, according to Eurogamer.
There's no word on the games list, but Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Super Mario World and the original Mario Kart seem like good bets.
Express Online has put together its own Mini SNES games wishlist below.

Nintendo Classic Mini SNES: 10 Games that MUST make the cut
As for the Mini NES, Nintendo has given fans hope of a return, telling customers that production had ended "for now".
"This product has ended production for now. When production is being resumed, we will tell you on our website," reads a Nintendo of Japan statement.
Nintendo recently said that the console was never intended to be a long-term product, and that additional units were only manufactured to satisfy demand.
It's a shame, because while the Mini NES had its problems – like those ridiculously short cables – it did provide a healthy kick of gaming nostalgia.
