The North American and European version will come out on September 29th, while the Japanese version will come out on October 5th. The price tag is $79.99, meaning it will have a smaller library than the NES Classic Mini for more money. However, the SNES Classic Mini will have two controllers, unlike the NES Classic, which came with only one.
