I have an awkward confession to make: growing up, I never owned a SNES. I had a NES but then no other console until the N64. My dad brought an Olivetti 8086 PC home from the office, and I was much more interested in learning how to use MS-DOS than play games. Imagine the collective chagrin, then, when I was first to receive the SNES Classic Mini rather than our gaming gurus Kyle, Sam, or Mark.
All this is to say: forgive me if I don’t do the SNES and its hallowed history justice. I am vaguely aware of what a barrel role is, but I have never performed one. The purpose of this story is to give you a good idea of what’s inside the Mini SNES box, and to tell you about a few other special features that haven’t been widely publicised. More in-depth coverage from one of the aforementioned Nintendo fanboys will follow.
First, take a look through the galleries. The images above show the Mini SNES packaging; the ones below show the SNES Classic itself plus the two wired controllers that come in the box. There’s also an HDMI cable and USB power cable in the box (but no wall plug: you’ll need to use one of the many USB wall plugs that you’ve accrued over the last five years).
