    Add Nintendo to the list of companies capitalizing on ’90s nostalgia.

    Nintendo announced a new standalone mini-console focused on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System on Monday, according to CNBC. The console follows the release of the Nintendo Entertainment System last year, which was a popular gift during the holiday season.

    The latest classic edition will have the same appearance of the original console, which was released in 1990. The SNES Classic Edition will contain 21 games, including “Super Mario World” and “The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.”

    The SNES Classic Edition will be released Sept. 29 and is priced at $80.
