    NOOOO. No DKC2 and DKC3? They are killing me super.

    Why release this thing with only 20 games, I wonder. Probably another PR stunt to promote the VC on the Switch.

    ^Yeah, DKC 2 is a stomper of a game. Maybe there will be a DKC Collection on Switch lol.

    Also, I'm not sure why Chrono Trigger was left off. I'm a huuuge fan of Final Fantasy II as well (IV) but I understand why they would only go with III. (VI)

    I'm glad for the amount of RPGs that are included, and it's really just a solid selection of games overall. But there's less games than the NES Classic and it costs more. And despite them saying this will be produced in higher numbers, I'm sure it will still be nigh impossible to find.

    The selection of games is way too small for a device that plays a fixed set of ROMS. Well, there are some great choices of course, like Earthbound, SMW2 and SMRPG... however, I think DKC3 is the best one of the SNES DKC, not even going to try and get one. Really wondering if there will be a 3player option for SoM, but I dont see really how that would materialize, other than that it may have native support for the multitap.

    Would comsider it if I knew beforehand it could be softmodded.

    Walmart has the SNES classic up for pre order right now. It probably won't last long.

    "The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M) features more than 2,000 full-color images, including box art, cartridges, screenshots, and vintage gaming ads. This is a beautifully illustrated, massive (9x12), professionally published (by Schiffer Publishing), full color, hardcover book—416 pages of Super Nintendo goodness, including a super cool work of art centerfold by the amazingly talented Thor Thorvaldson.

    The book is a fun, informative, and historically important look at ALL the original Super Nintendo games released in the U.S. beginning with the letters A-M. More than 350 games are featured, including such iconic titles as Chrono Trigger, Contra III: The Alien Wars, Donkey Kong Country, EarthBound, F-Zero, Final Fantasy II and III, Gradius III, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Each game, whether obscure or mainstream, is covered in exhaustive detail, with thoroughly vetted, accurate information. In addition to thorough, well-written gameplay descriptions, the book includes reviews, fun facts, historical and development info, quotes from vintage magazines, and, best of all, nostalgic stories about many of the games from programmers, authors, convention exhibitors, video game store owners, YouTube celebs, and other industry insiders. There are also supplemental essays on the Console Wars and Emulation for the Super Nintendo."

    Amazon has this for a little cheaper, but without several minor perks. I'm super intrigued by this, and could definitely be an incentive to go through and finally make an attempt to play through the SNES library.
