The industry’s worst-kept secret has finally been announced, and we’re pretty happy with the game lineup. Nintendo recently unveiled the Super NES Classic Edition, the followup to its hit retro plug-and-play NES Classic Edition, and the game lineup hits almost all the high notes.

Coming to store shelves September 29th, 2017, the SNES Classic Edition will bring 21 classic Super Nintendo games, including (yes) EarthBound and the previously unreleased Star Fox 2, which for some reason you have to unlock on the SNES Classic Edition by beating the first level in Star Fox. We’re not complaining, though, because here’s the full games list:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-Zero
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • Yoshi’s Island

That’s 21 games in total, including three classic RPGs, arguably the best Zelda game until Breath of the Wild came around, and a slew of all-time greats like Super MetroidMega Man X, and (of course) Super Mario World.

Packaged with two wired SNES controllers, the SNES Classic will cost $79.99, which is $20 more than the NES Classic cost when it was released in November 2016 with 30 games, but it seems like a small price to pay for the sheer amount of joy-filled hours that the games on the SNES Classic offers.

There’s no pre-order information yet, but as soon as there is, the smart bet would be to place one, especially if Nintendo pulls the same stunt with the NES Classic—offering a limited supply and then canceling production when the demand was at a fever pitch. That is, unless you want to spend five times the original asking price for one on Amazon.
