As many people probably know already the SNES Classic will soon eventually be discontinued in relation to production despite how successful it has been since its initial release back in late September during 2017. There were so many amazing titles on the SNES Classic such as Super Mario World, Zelda: Link to the Past, Super Metroid and many others that people were very excited to see on the SNES Classic and after being available in retail for little over a year it will eventually be discontinued sometime in 2019.
Just because Nintendo has discontinued the development of the SNES does not mean that 16-bit games from that console cannot appear on the Nintendo Switch eShop similar to titles such as Donkey Kong Jr. which was announced a few days ago. If Nintendo were smart they would definitely make 16-bit classics that were popular on the SNES available on the Switch eShop sometime in 2019. While Nintendo wants to focus more on modern day titles such as Super Mario Odessey, Zelda: Breath of the Wild and others the classics from the 16-bit era still has a ton of value to this day which the company can still profit off of.
