Once upon a time, the past used to be something to run from, something to reject in favour of a more exciting now. But in 2017 being present doesn’t seem so appealing, and with that, the old has become new again.
And when it comes to bringing the good times back, none do it better than Nintendo.
With the release of the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, a petite version of the legendary console, gamers will be thinking its 1992 all over again, albeit on a (quite literally) smaller scale.
Launched in Australia and New Zealand a quarter of a century ago, the Super Nintendo introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time – classics such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid and F-ZERO.
The Classic Mini comes with 21 pre-loaded games, including some that were never officially released back in the day, so finding something to play isn’t going to be a problem.
Thanks to Nintendo, the past is back at it again. Chris Prindiville
