|The lineup of 21 games includes the never-before-released Star Fox 2.|
A follow-up to the impossible-to-find NES classic is on its way from Nintendo, due to launch later this year. Called the Super Nintendo Classic Edition, the new hardware comes with 21 games, including one that has never previously been released.
Scheduled to arrive on September 27, 2017 with an MSRP of $79.99, the mini console ships with two classic controllers, which are compatible with the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories you may already be using on your Wii U. Nintendo is emphasizing (as it has with the Switch console) multiplayer gaming, and the Super Nintendo library had no shortage of classics along those lines.
Here is the list of the 21 titles included:

So those are all excellent, and more than a few staples of my childhood. Getting one is not a nice proposition, on the other hand... I'm not writing it off, but with the debacle that was the NES Classic, I'm not optimistic.

It was launched yesterday (today to me still)
It seems like the community if actively fighting the scalping of these devices. They are definitely more abundant even though current resale value is still about 100% from retail (in my area)
Should be interesting to see what happens around Christmas, my guess is that they'll surge in price and and then disappear. Nintendo made a lot more of these things

I think Nintendo has decided that scalpers are bad for business. Reggie Fils-Aimee has encouraged gamers to not pay those inflated prices, and assured people there will be enough units made to meet the demand (if only eventually), so I'm not going to stress myself out over it. I do want one, but until things settle down, I can spend my money elsewhere and probably not miss much.
