Nintendo’s been on a roll this year. With the release of the Nintendo Switch, the sleek-looking 2DS XL on the way, and Mario and Metroid Prime titles releasing shortly after the company’s best-selling Zelda installment of all time, Nintendo has repeatedly raised the bar for itself with a constant barrage of new products and returning franchises – and this latest announcement may have just raised it even higher.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) will be making a return later this year with a new Classic Edition. At $80, gamers will be able to relive some of their favorite childhood titles, thanks to a rather impressive looking lineup of games.

The SNES Classic Edition will release as a smaller version of itself capable of fitting in the palm of your hand, along with two wired retro Super NES controllers for multiplayer gaming. According to the system’s site page, the Classic Edition “has the original look and feel of the ‘90s home console, only smaller,” which suggests an experience specifically tailored to replicate as much of the original systems’ charm. Now, the only concern is there being enough consoles to go around this time…

The SNES Classic Edition is scheduled to release on September 29th. For more information, check out the official page for the console on Nintendo’s website, or follow the company on Twitter for any future announcements.
