Nintendo may be working on the hottest toy of the 2017 holiday season. 

According to a Eurogamer report, Nintendo developers are working on a mini version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) console that will be released during the 2017 holiday season.

The original Super Nintendo was released in North America in August 1991. Games that were playable on the SNES included, “Super Mario World,” "Donkey Kong Country," "Star Fox," "Super Mario Kart," "Super Metroid" and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past."

The SNES mini will reportedly come with a library of games pre-installed, along with a plug-and-play setup similar to its predecessor, the NES Classic.

Nintendo announced last week that it would discontinue the popular NES Classic mini, which was released in November 2016. Demand for the product far exceeded supplies, with many stores selling out and people selling them on secondary markets for hundreds more than its $59.99 original price.

The development of the SNES mini is a big reason why the NES Classic mini was discontinued, according to Eurogamer.

Nintendo has yet to publicly confirm the development of the SNES mini.
