So is this the wrong time to tell you the N64 mini will be next?

Given the state of N64 emulation, if this does happen you'd probably only get a handful of the most popular first party titles. I don't see Nintendo putting in the effort to fix the emulation issues that have plagued the majority of the library for the last 20 years

If Tetris Attack isn't on the SNES Mini then it's not worth your money.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

It's stupidly easy if you have even the most basic understanding of computing. There are guides on the net that will walk you through every step.

Can also install multiple boot image that give you Kodi, Raspian (desktop os) and Retropie with a couple clicks.

So, for some reason I can't figure out, the Shawnessey Best Buy had about a half dozen NES Classic controllers with 10' cables as of yesterday. Not the Nintendo official ones though. I can't remember if it was the RetroBit ones, but given they were $20 in store and are listed as $25 online from a third party, I'm not sure.

Still, if you're looking for a second controller...

With FF VI, Earthbound, Secret of Mana and SM RPG all on there, I can see why Chrono Trigger was cut. There's already an overload of RPGs on the system.

The timing of this is extremely curious. If you are going to make this, and you have the capacity to produce it alongside Switch and 3DS/2DS, then why discontinue the NES Classic?

Don't worry, I have it. But it would have been nice to see it on the SNES Classic too.

But really, they could have released this with only Super Metroid and I would have been satisfied.

This is a unique opportunity for me to beat Super Mario RPG on a 5th system, Super Metroid on a 6th system and FF3/6 on an 8th system.

This cannot be passed up.

Gross that's $134 + shipping so probably $180. Pass
