This could potentially explain the NES Classic Mini cancellation even though the popularity of the tiny retro console hasn’t died down. Apparently, Nintendo was looking to clear the market out this Christmas for the SNES Classic Mini. As such, Nintendo never intended to keep the NES Classic Mini in stock past last years Christmas.
I’m pretty jazzed for the SNES Classic Mini, as I grew up loving the SNES games more than NES games. For many, it’s difficult not to look back fondly on some of the best console games ever created on the SNES such as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, and Chrono Trigger, to name just a few.
Can we really justify the price of the little console when we have the Virtual Console filled with SNES and NES classics? Although, for anyone who hasn’t bought a Nintendo console since the Wii this could be a great way to snag some nostalgic adults with a SNES Classic Mini who want to relive some of their childhood experiences without a high barrier to entry price.
It’s best to pre-order as soon as possible seeing that the NES Classic Mini sold out and became discontinued shortly after. Let’s hope the supplies don’t run dry too soon, but as we already know Nintendo has a bad track record with keeping up with demand.
Do you think Nintendo will give us more than 30 titles for the SNES Classic Mini? What games would you like to see pre-loaded on the tiny nostalgia box?
Dance the magic dance! Soon you’ll be able to get your hands on all four Labyrinth Funko Pops. This first set includes Jareth, Sarah and Worm, Hoggle and Ludo! Funko says you’ll be able to pick up the bunch come September 2016.
Let us know which other Labyrinth characters you would love to see as Funkos!
Coming soon from toy giant Funko are cutesy versions of your favorite terrifying aquatic guardians from the depths. Funko Pop! has ventured to Rapture making a quick stop at Columbia to bring back some familiar Bioshock faces for addition to their ever growing figure line. The figures being released are pictured above. We’ll get softened versions of a Big Daddy, Little Sister, two differently stylised versions of Booker DeWitt (with Skyhook and with Shotgun) and of course Elizabeth.
Sweet and bug-eyed like the rest of the series as we’ve come to know and love them, they should be coming out hopefully for the fall season.
The additional Songbird Funko Pop figure has a definite release date of October 15, 2015, it can be pre-ordered via Gamestop now here: http://bit.ly/1Jytvlr and picked up on the release date at Gamestop locations.
Excited? We all are, just promise me two things: You’ll think twice about harvesting the Little Sisters for ADAM and you watch out for those drills.
About time, am I right? We’ll finally be able to get out hands on our favorite high functioning sociopath in Funko form. Along with Dr. Watson, Irene Adler, and Mr. Jim “Did-You-Miss-Me?” Moriarty himself.
Check out this hilarious ad for the new line of Batman: The Animated Series figures. Done in the style of toy ads in the 80′s/90′s. Those of us that were kids during that time would definitely appreciate the tone of the ad. It makes buying the figures so, so enticing (as if they weren’t already enough.)
