Gamer alert! Nintendo will follow up its smash hit NES microconsole with a mini version of the SNES, sources close to the company have confirmed.

Because, really, there are not enough distractions in our world right now, right?

The SNES mini (or, to continue Nintendo's official branding, likely the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, say that five times quick) is currently scheduled to launch in time for Christmas this year. Development of the device is already under way!
