ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!?!
Look, there's Euro U21 action and even some real club football, too, with the very first games of the 2017-18 Champions League getting underway in "first qualifying round" (of three, plus playoffs, before the group stages).
Super Mario World, Earthbound, Star Fox 2 + 18 more games? Now you’re playing with super power! #SNESClassic launches 9/29. pic.twitter.com/BPPGjpskPT— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) June 26, 2017
Other than a crap Atari knock-off, the very first gaming system I had was a Super Nintendo back in high school. I loved that thing, and I especially loved Zelda, Donkey Kong, and NHL 96. Oh, and Ken Griffey Jr's Winning Run. Then later, Final Fantasy III (i.e. VI) and Chrono Trigger. Ah, memories.
Judging by the scarcity of the NES version of this, we have no chance whatsoever of getting one, but it would be pretty cool.
Maybe I should just buy a Switch to play the new Zelda...
