The cynic in me, wouldn't be to shocked if we start hearing about VC for Switch very soon.

Good shout, mas. Thumbs Up! Certainly more likely than a SNES Classic Mini... *wistful sigh*

I reckon it must be something Virtual Console related, but surely Nintendo are more likely to sell a NES Classic Mini at Ł50 than Ł50 worth of NES VC games? Suspect

Fingers crossed the price points change in the Switch VC. Rolling Eyes This NintendoLife article raises the possibility that the NES Classic Mini was just a way to get rid of all the spare Wii Remote connectors. Suspect

Oh, almost undoubtedly. The controller wires were so short because they were originally designed to attach to Wii remotes.

My thinking Jay was they wanted something out at Christmas for that dolla dolla and now the Switch is out, they want to flog that. Nintendo can now when VC comes to Switch, go hey you like Super Mario Bros. 3, guess what you can play it on Switch.

Remember the NES Classic Mini? Nintendo does - or maybe it remembers the profit, or the bad publicity - and is ramping the old/new machine back into production.

Thoughts? Comments? Near-infinite sadness at the price you paid for it back in the day? No

I like the sound of this as I missed out on the NES mini so I'd quite like to own one.

I'm not gonna be picking up a NES or SNES mini any time soon, but I'd like to have the option to buy one in the future when I'm settled down somewhere.

It's nice it is coming back for the summer 2018 but this is Nintendo, it still be hard to get one and same goes doe the SNES Mini. Sure it is now going to be around in to 2018 (if they aren't all sold out as soon as they're available) but that could only be till the end of January for all we know.
