If you beat the first level of Star Fox you’ll unlock Star Fox 2!
Unlike it’s predecessor the NES Classic, Nintendo isn’t skimping out on the accessories that come in the box. You’ll not only get one, but two controllers included, as well as HDMI and charging cables. Nintendo also listened to the complaints from NES Classic owners about the controller cables being too short, and it is said that the SNES Classic will have five foot controller cables (roughly two feet longer than the NES Classic).
Fans are thrilled, and sharing their excitement on Twitter.

Some are also poking fun of the shortages of the NES Classic, expecting similar shortages for this console.
