After the unbridled success of its Nintendo Classic Edition, Nintendo may unveil a follow up to it, this time focused around Super Nintendo.

The Verge (via Eurogamer) reports that Nintendo may unveil a miniature Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) later this year, in time for Christmas.

Nintendo could not be immediately reached for comment for this story.


The Japanese video game giant surprised fans of the NES Classic Edition earlier this month when it announced that final shipments were on their way to North America and it was discontinuing the product.

Nintendo said it sold more than 1.5 million NES Classic consoles, a figure that was sharply higher than expected.

Eurogamer noted that the cancelation may have been due in part to get ready for the upcoming production of the mini SNES, which could feature games such as "Super Mario World," "Donkey Kong Country," "Super Metroid" and others.

Nintendo is slated to report earnings on April 27 where it is expected to give an update on how many Switch consoles it sold.

Last week, research firm NPD Group and Nintendo said that it sold more than 906,000 Switch consoles in North America in March, making it Nintendo's best-selling launch ever.
