"Nintendo will ship more units of the system on launch day in the US than were shipped of the NES Classic Edition system all a year ago", reads a line in press releases that Nintendo issued Thursday morning and earlier this month.

Getting your hands on last year's NES classic was next to impossible. It comes loaded with 20 plus classic Super NES games, including versions of Super Mario, the Legend of Zelda, and Donkey Kong.

The process of extracting the Star Fox 2 ROM may not have been that hard, as the SNES Classic and the NES Classic use the same type of internal hardware, with only the shell and software differing. In the United States it will be $79 and in the UK the SNES Classic price is £69 (although some retailers initially listed it at £79).
