NES Classic Edition to return to stores in June

Share

Nintendo eventually discontinued the hard-to-find NES Classic in April 2017.

The NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition are returning to stores on June 29, Nintendo of America announced this week.

The NES Classic Edition was sold out immediately when it was first released in November 2016, sparking a lucrative tug-of-war between supply and demand that pushed the NES Classic Edition resale price to over $500.

In its tweet, Nintendo said the NES Classic and SNES Classic Edition will be available through the end of 2018.

Either way, yay, we're getting more NES Classic Editions! The games list is an impressive collection of classics, from "Final Fantasy" to "Castlevania".

Are you excited about the news of the NES Classic and SNES Classic coming back? For whatever reason, Nintendo basically offered "we didn't expect them to be this popular" as some sort of sound reasoning for not making more. That was most likely to enable production of the Super NES Classic, which arrived in fall 2017 and was nearly identical save for its outer shell and selection of built-in games.

Both mini consoles were originally released in such small numbers that hungry consumers crashed websites trying to get their hands on one.

The NES Classic Edition comes with 30 classic games you can play - no additional purchases needed.

The online access to classic NES games provided by a Nintendo Switch Online subscription and the availability of the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition are not the same as the Virtual Console though.
