We just got the elusive SNES Mini from Nintendo, and surprise, it’s adorable.
This tiny little thing might not have a working cartridge slot or eject button but it’s easy to pick up and throw around — not that you’d want to do that given how rare this thing already is. The retro style manual (which is actually a fold-out poster) is a nice touch too, as is the included HDMI cable. Along with your power adapter that’s all she wrote — and the retail box is tiny as well. All-in the whole enchilada weighs about three pounds.
I can’t stress how nice having two controllers out of the gate is. I went into my local GameStop the morning of the NES Mini’s release (having pre-ordered it), and asked how many controllers they had — “two,” they replied, and the line was 20 people long. Yeesh!
That’s about all I can say for now! Stay tuned for our review sometime next week.
