The SNES Classic and Should I Care?

A few days Nintendo accounced, unsurprisingly, that they would be releasing an SNES Classic system in a similar vein to the NES Classic. The new mini-console will include 21 games including StarFox 2, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, and Earth Bound. The system will also include 2 SNES controllers for a price of $80. The system is set to release this September and will run through 2017. That is all very nice, but should we really care?

This time he has even sent it wedding invites though. But he made a grave mistake, he pissed off a magic top hat! Sure Bowser has perfected his plan on stopping Mario, but Mario with a magic hat?
