Comes with two controllers this time. The ‘big news’ is the chipped games on there like Super Mario RPG, Star Fox, Star Fox 2, Kirby Super Star, and Yoshi’s Island which are not even available on flash cards. Unfortunately, aside from Star Fox and maybe Kirby Super Star, I don’t see those games as that good (I own the cartridge of Yoshi’s Island and it is meh. No wonder Donkey Kong Country destroyed it!).

Let us look at the third party entries.

Contra III: The Alien Wars™
Final Fantasy III
Mega Man® X
Secret of Mana
Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
Super Castlevania IV™
Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®

 

7 third party games? Ugh.

Where is…

Chrono Trigger

Gradius III

R-type III

Donkey Kong Country 2

Turtles in Time

Final Fantasy IV

Axelay

Actraiser

Mortal Kombat II

Lufia II

Tetris Attack

Tetris Vs. Dr. Mario

Breath of Fire

Etc. Etc. Etc.

??????????????????

NES Classic gave you 30 games for $60 but with only one controller.

SNES Classic will always be sold out.

What I don’t understand is why is Nintendo making these? I thought NES Classic was to have some sort of holiday gift for 2016. What is the point of these things? Why do this and offer no Virtual Console where there are greater profit margins?
