Nintendo has unveiled the SNES Classic console, a legendary ‘90s gaming device adapted for modern technology.
Officially called the “Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System”, the device will hit the South African market on the 29th of September this year, just in time for early festive-season gift shopping.
