Dirty rumour of the day: Nintendo have asked Walmart to cancel all SNES Mini pre-orders:

Let the baseless speculation begin!

This would suggest Nintendo has met manufacturing difficulties and won't be able to fulfil the initial shipments?

Quite possible. Or that they want to force walk-ins, physical limits per customers, and avoid the eBay scalpers. Or both.

Historically, this isn't the first time Nintendo has strong-armed retailers. So while it's still 100% rumour-mill, I wouldn't be surprised if it was true.

Rumour of the last week there. Something about them releasing pre-orders too early.

ohh ouch, i'd be ultra disappointed if i were one of the people that got a pre-order and got the cancellation E-mail!

I'm waiting angry people demanding compensation from Walmart to appear all over the internet

In case anyone's interested, you can now pre-order from Harvey Norman (of all places). Stock still available.

You know. The more I think on it... The more it saddens me that not including Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 is a massive missed opportunity.

I never did get to own the second and third iterations of the franchise on the SNES. And they always looked appealing. Such a shame!

Same with not having Super Mario All Stars so we could compare the games between the NES and SNES classics.

whilst everyone agrees with this... the most important people do not.

they company that made donkey kong games for snes was 'rare' and they got bought out by microsoft in the early 2000's...
and that is the end of that

And yet. Donkey Kong Country is on the system.

Donkey Kong Country 1, 2 and 3 is on the 3DS Virtual Console.
Donkey Kong Country 1, 2 and 3 is on the Wii U Virtual Console.
Donkey Kong Country 1, 2 and 3 is on the Wii Virtual Console.

Nintendo owns the license to Donkey Kong.

No excuse.

All these people focusing on and complaining about what it doesn't have - what about what it *does* have? In my opinion, it simply having Super Metroid, Zelda LttP and Secret of Mana alone makes it worth $120. You're also getting Donkey Kong Country, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Mario World and Yoshi's Island as icing. Everything else is decoration adding to an treat already worth its value.
