mirrorAsk anyone born between 1975 and 1990 about gaming and chances are they've got fond memories of Super Mario Kart or Street Fighter II on Nintendo's original SNES console. Originally launched in Japan in 1990 and here in the UK in '92, it went toe-to-toe with the Sega Mega Drive for living room domination.
ForbesNintendo sold 4 million SNES Classic Edition units since that system was released in late 2017. That's a pretty staggering figure when you think about it, especially since the company was also selling Nintendo Switch units hand over fist. Over 13 million Switch units have been sold-through to consumers since the system's launch in early 2017.
