THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Nintendo announced today that we'll be seeing more Super NES and NES Classic Consoles hit stores than originally anticipated. Jump in after the cut to find out when you can snag your own!
And this is all thanks to, and I quote, "incredible demand" for the consoles. People like what you got Nintendo, thanks for listening.
Additional units of the Super NES will ship later this month on September 29th, the launch date of the sustem, along with additional shipments arriving, and I quote Nintendo once more, "regularly." If you're a fan of Nintendo, then you know the unease that comes with the idea of "additional shipments." As a poor video game store employee while I was in college this meant that a shipment could have as few as two or three items to refresh stock (is anyone else having Amiibo flashbacks?). I'm hoping Nintendo delivers on this promise.
The NES Classic will relaunch next summer with new shipments.
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.
