I will proudly admit that we report more about Nintendo here at FHM, than we do about politics. Perhaps that fact may be unsettling to some. You may even begin to question our journalistic integrity, but here are my thoughts. In a time of political and civil upheaval, why be one more blabbering publication spoon-feeding you fake news? Don't you want to hear about all of the beauty in the world? I know we do! Today that beauty happens to come in the form of a miniature SNES reported to launch THIS CHRISTMAS-SEASON. CAN I GET A "F-CK YEAH?!"
Nintendo announced earlier this month that they'll be discontinuing The NES classic which was super depressing, to say the least. So really, this news couldn't have come at a better time. Perhaps Nintendo knew they had some very upset children (read: grown men) on their hands and decided to make it up to their loyal customers.
Reports from Eurogamer reports:
"The SNES mini (or, to continue Nintendo's official branding, likely the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System) is currently scheduled to launch in time for Christmas this year. Development of the device is already under way, our sources have indicated."
Alright, so Christmas isn't exactly right around the corner, but if I were you guys, I'd start getting my running shoes and machete (totally kidding) ready. Black Friday is scary enough as it is, let alone with a product of this popularity making it's way back to the market. Oh, and how could we forget the games?!

"A re-launched SNES with built-in games would fly off the shelves as a Christmas gift, offering gamers young and old access to a range of classics including Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, and Street Fighter II Turbo.
They had me at Super Mario World, TBH. I hope you guys are as excited as we are! Happy future shopping.
