The SNES Classic micro console was announced recently and fans of retro gaming are eager for the pre-orders to go live so they can nab their own little console. If you’re one such gamer then you’ll also want to check out the history book that’s set to be released alongside the console which is being published by Prima Games.
Available to pre-order right now on Amazon, the book is called Playing With Super Power: Nintendo SNES Classics and will be released alongside the mini console on September 29. It offers readers an in-depth look at the history of the SNES and the effect it had on the industry. It will be available in paperback but there’s also a special hardcover version available which comes with a slipcase styled to look like an SNES cartridge.
The paperback edition is priced at $19.99 whilst the more premium hardback edition is more costly at $44.99. The SNES Classic is the second micro console to be released by Nintendo following the NES Classic. Like the first one, it will have classic games from that era of gaming on its hard drive as well as the never before released Star Fox 2. It will retail for $80 but you’d better be quick, it’s expected to sell out fast.
