While the NES Classic has come and gone, those who are still chomping at the bit for nostalgic Nintendo goodness can pick up the SNES Classic, a mini version of the Super Nintendo console that’s scheduled to hit retailers at the end of September. The device will be released in North America, Europe, and Japan, and the Japanese version will come with a few different games.

The North America and Europe models will contain the following games:

Contra III: The Alien Wars
Donkey Kong Country
Final Fantasy III
Kirby Super Star
Kirby’s Dream Course
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Mega Man X
Secret of Mana
Star Fox
Star Fox 2
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
Super Castlevania IV
Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Super Mario World
Super Metroid
Super Punch-Out!!
Yoshi’s Island

It’s a wisely curated list with some all-time greats on there (I’m looking at you, Link to the Past) and it’s worth noting that Star Fox 2 was never actually released. The Japanese version of the SNES Classic, which, like the European model, resembles the Super Famicon rather than the Super Nintendo, swaps six games from the other model. Instead of Earthbound, Kirby’s Dream Course, Street Fighter II Turbo, Super Castlevania IV, and Super Punch-Out, gamers will get Panel de Pon, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, Ganbare Goemon: The Legend of the Mystical Ninja, Super Soccer, and Super Street Fighter II. I’d almost be willing to trade those first six games for The Legend of the Mystical Ninja. Almost.

The SNES Classic will hit North America and Europe on September 29th for $79.99 and Japan on October 5th for 7,980 yen.
