It's Not Too Late to Get Nintendo's SNES Classic Edition

Nintendo opens pre-orders for $80 Super NES Classic Edition

In contrast to what Nintendo fans found this week, Nintendo had promised that the SNES Classic would be easier to find than its predecessor was previous year.

The new console - called the SNES Classic Edition - comes with 21 packaged Super Nintendo Entertainment System classics, including "Donkey Kong Country" and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past". The SNES Classic holds 30 different classic SNES games, including the unreleased Star Fox 2.

In his hands-on preview, The Verge's Executive Editor Dieter Bohn emphasized how the SNES Classic's controller feels excellent, and explained how the emulator's Rewind feature will save gamers' [extra] lives.

Tuesday morning, retailers Walmart and Target also posted the preorder listing. It's unclear when those retailers will offer the system for pre-order, and Nintendo didn't respond to a request for comment regarding pre-orders going forward. A full review of what the game play is like will follow towards the end of September, but for now, if you managed to pre-order one, you have every reason to be very excited.

BUT there were many who took a massive L trying to land an SNES Classic last night and rightfully so took their frustrations out on their timelines.




Nintendo's new retro console, the SNES Classic, will come with a Rewind feature that allows you to go back in time when you screw up. Still, they did seem to last longer than what we'd seen with the ridiculously hard to buy NES Classic.

Interest in the SNES Classic edition has been intense among the retro gaming crowd since past year when its predecessor, the NES Classic, flew off store shelves during the holiday season.

The NES Classic was a runaway success, but unfortunately supply could never meet demand.

We've reached out to Best Buy for comment about what went wrong with their pre-sale and will update if we hear back.
