    The biggest surprise here is that it comes with Star Fox 2, which was never released.

    And yes it's also coming to Europe

    I love the SNES. I love a lot of the games that includes. But GAH in a world without Switch Virtual Console this is aggravating.

    The NES Classic seemed like a short-term thing that shot off unexpectedly. When they ceased production before demand was sated, I figured it was because they were making a replacement product that would be good longer-term. With NES Classic there was nothing to further sell to a consumer except potentially a second controller. I figured a cheap VC machine with the ability to buy and download new games would be coming, perhaps with a shared library with Switch VC (at least for older machines).

    But this... goes in the opposite direction! Now they don't even have the second controller as a later upsell, because it's included right from the start.
