After announcing the end of the NES Classic Edition last week, and the subsequent crazy resell prices, there are rumors circulating that a new Nintendo release might be on the way.

According to Eurogamersources close to Nintendo have confirmed that the game company is currently producing a SNES mini, aka a SNES Classic Edition, and it will arrive just in time for the holidays.

The mini NES, which was released last November, was a huge hit for the brand, so it makes sense for them to expand to the SNES. What's confusing is why the NES mini was discontinued in the first place. In its statement announcing the discontinuation, Nintendo referenced customer difficulties in actually acquiring a console, but that doesn't seem enough reason to just scrap the product completely. Polygon has suggested it could be all be part of a Supreme-like marketing scheme, designed to keep up hype around Nintendo.

Regardless of the reasoning, if a SNES is actually on the way, that can only be a good thing.
