U.S: Nintendo Increases Inventory of SNES Mini; NES Classic Edition Returns To Stores In 2018

Due to incredible demand for the upcoming Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, Nintendo plans to ship the retro-inspired product into 2018. Originally, shipments were announced to cease at the end of this calendar year.

In addition, more units of Super NES Classic Edition will ship on its Sept. 29 launch day in the U.S. than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all last year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly. Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves.

The Super NES Classic Edition system features 21 legendary Super NES games such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Metroid. Launching on Sept. 29 at a suggested retail price of only $79.99, Super NES Classic Edition plugs directly into the TV using the provided HDMI cable, and comes with two wired controllers.

  1. How serendipitous. Two nights ago I had a dream I was at Target and they had both the NES and SNES Classic in stock at the same time.. 😱

  2. I was just saying that I wished Nintendo would release the NES Classic Edition again in an earlier post, and now my wish has been granted. AWESOME! I already have one, but I’m so happy for those who doesn’t yet. I also LOVE all of this talk about how many SNES Classics are being made. It’s a wonderful news day. Sure beats reading about Donald Trump.

  3. I have a strong feeling that Nintendo has ramped up all the retro system inventory because something fell through with their holiday Switch inventory. :-(

    It’s a smart business move to strengthen one pillar when a storm is on the horizon. I hope it’s not true.

  4. I got my nes mini at regular price, but I think of all the nintendo fans that f5 their amazon pages for weeks, went to their local walmart so the morbid obese just before them bought the remaining 5 nes mini just to scalp them all, people that paid ridiculous prices after Nintendo announced the cease of production…nintendo, you can be disgusting sometimes.

    Yes, now I’ll be able to buy even more SNES Classics AND NES Classics to scalp and sell again for 3x the price! >:D

    But, in all seriousness, this is great news for people who want to buy one.

    Hm. Shocker. For once, Reggie might have actually told the truth. Still, I will laugh my ass off if there are just enough for scalpers to buy more & rip more people off. *shrug*
