Eurogamer has multiple sources who say that Nintendo is planning to release an SNES Classic mini console this year.

Recently Nintendo announced that it would not continue to manufacture the popular NES Classic released last year, and according to Eurogamer, the development of this classic SNES is the reason why.

There are no details on the games the SNES Classic would come with or its form factor.

Our Take
This report casts the NES Classic discontinuation in a new light, but it still doesn't make it any more understandable. Although, the company's history certainly suggests that it wants fans to pay money for many of its classic titles repeatedly on different systems.
