Were you a fun of Super Nintendo back in the 90s? If so, we’ve got some good news for you!

Nintendo announced Tuesday it is making a mini version of its Super Nintendo.

For $79.99, the new system – called the SNES Classic Edition – comes with 21 packaged Super Nintendo Entertainment System classics, including Donkey Kong Country and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

It will also include what may be the best Mario game ever made: “Super Mario World.” But what else is on there?

Here’s the full list of games:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-Zero
  • 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

Super NES Classic Edition is a shortened version of the console’s name from 1991, when it was released as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Don’t get too nostalgic, though. Unlike the original SNES console, the Classic Edition won’t play cartridges. It’s capable of powering only the 21 games included in the box.

The console is small enough to fit in your palm.

Retailers are advising consumers to preorder the console far in advance.

The console has a September 29 release date.
