Movie Sleuth Gaming News: Nintendo Announces SNES Classic and Release Date

After the epic sales of their release of a classic NES system, Nintendo is back at it with another retro system ready to hit the market. Their SNES Classic is currently being prepped for a release this fall. It's currently slated to hit store shelves on September 29th just in time for the early bird Christmas shoppers. The system will include two controllers and will have 21 games preloaded.
