Nintendo’s new miniature wonderland

Published

on

Do you want to catch up a piece of gaming history? Or refresh memories? Nintendos Mini-SNES brings the pixel worlds of the nineties back. But without reservation, the nostalgia could become expensive.

One year ago, Nintendo succeeded in making a surprise: a miniaturized version of the NES – the Nintendo console that dominated the eighties – was so good that many gamers are still annoyed by the fact that they have not got any of the new devices full of old games on the shelf. This Friday, Nintendo’s nostalgia trip goes to the second round, with a new version of the NES successor, the Super Nintendo (SNES).

Also, the second device of the so-called Nintendo Classic Miniseries is hand-held and not able to recycle the modules from earlier. There are 21 full-fledged games in the gray box. Many of them are true classics, some were deprived of European players in the 1990s. And a game is even released for the first time.

 

So where can you get the mini console?

As with the Mini-NES, it would be difficult to find the new SNES in retail. The quantities demanded exceed the delivered quantities considerably. If you do not pre-order, then you are likely to be empty – at least at the normal price of around one hundred euros.  People are re-selling them online but at a very high price point

Nintendo

Anyone who can wait should ignore these offers from resellers: Nintendo announced in mid-September that 2018 will deliver mini-SNES to Europe and plans for the summer mini-NES replenishment. In addition, the company, which was still surprised by the popularity of the first retro console, wants to produce more units from the outset. A subsequent delivery before Christmas is therefore in the range of possible.

What games are on the device?

As a SNES mother company, Nintendo is the most active player in the world, from the marvelous bouncy “Super Mario World” to the legendary alien excursion “Super Metroid” to the groundbreaking Zelda adventure “A Link to the Past”. The Japanese video game veterans from Capcom, Square, and Konami deliver seven more classics.

 

While some of the crude 8-bit games of the small NES require the nostalgic stuffing, the Mini-SNES also offers many hours of fun to players without retro-faible. The SNES-miniature is worthwhile itself – especially for “Super Mario Kart” and “Street Fighter II” – for their amusement games and RPGs.

And undoubtedly, the new Nintendo device is an unbeatable convenient way to get to know a whole dozen milestones of video game history and perhaps love it at the same time

Windows Phone has been dead for several months. An obvious fact for many people, with the exception of Microsoft, which has never publicly confirmed the thing, thus leaving a slight doubt

But the manufacturer has obviously decided not to deny the thing anymore. This Sunday, October 8, Joe Belfiore, vice president of Microsoft, has indeed confirmed half-word the death of Windows Phone and Windows Mobile 10.

Asked by a Twitter user of whether Microsoft still plans to develop new mobile applications or products under Windows 10 Mobile in the future, Joe Belfiore responded bitterly:

 

“Of course we will continue to support the platform [Windows 10 Mobile, Editor’s note.]. Bug fixes, security updates, and so on. But developing new features / making new products is not our priority “

 

Again, many signs are responsible for confirming the death of Windows Phone before him. In May 2016, Microsoft separated from its mobile branch based in Finland – more than 1,300 jobs – and acquired following the acquisition of Nokia for $ 7.2 billion in 2014.

A few days ago, Nick Lazaridis, CEO of HP EMEA, also announced that Microsoft had indeed ended the development of Windows 10 Mobile.
