The chaos has ensued in Europe this week as the SNES Classic Mini pre-orders went live, with console pre-orders closing in multiple stores and online within a matter of hours. However, it looks like the US will have to wait a little longer for theirs.
There hasn’t been any pre-orders up in the US as of yet due to the missing FCC approval, which is required for every electronic device in the United States in order to be sold. The FCC approval certifies that the device’s electromagnetic interference is under limits approved by the Federal Communications Commission.
As it looks like the SNES Classic Mini hasn’t gotten past this stage yet, and taking into consideration that the process can take weeks rather than days, the pre-orders may take up to the end of July or potentially even longer to go live.
We will keep you posted with any further updates!
