Nintendo announces Super NES Classic, goes on sale September 29

Nintendo’s NES Classic was constantly out of stock, including the day it launched, and whenever it was in stock, it was out shortly after. So you could understand why people were upset to learn of Nintendo’s discontinuation of the NES Classic edition. The discontinuation also prompted rumors about Nintendo’s possible plan to release a Super NES Classic as well.

Super Mario World, Earthbound, Star Fox 2 + 18 more games? Now you’re playing with super power! #SNESClassic launches 9/29. http://pic.twitter.com/BPPGjpskPT— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) June 26, 2017

Facebook Messenger is adding some new features today, all of which are about its built-in video chat functionality. We don’t know how used this is inside the app, but it sure does look like Facebook is eager to remind people that video chatting inside Messenger is actually a thing you can do.
