SNES Classic Edition inventory to increase, NES Classic Edition to return in 2018


A hah, and here we go. Nintendo this morning officially confirmed that they will be re-releasing the super hard to locate NES Classic Edition console… in the summer of 2018. They also once again claiming to be increasing production for the upcoming Super NES Classic Edition as well, so hopefully would-be owners can pre-order and/or walk into a store and pick one up without too much fuss.

We’ll wait and see how that works out. But good news either way!

See the announcement below.

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.

Next summer, Nintendo will also bring back the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system with new shipments. More information about the timing of the return of NES Classic Edition will be announced in the future.
