SNES Classic Will Be Available for Pre-Order This Month, Honest

SNES Classic Will Be Available for Pre-Order This Month, Honest

The pitchforks sharpened as the angry Nintendo fan-mob shout when the hell they'll be able to pre-order the sought-after SNES Classic, which launches on September 29. The titles include original SNES classics like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda, and Star Fox, as well as a brand new and long-anticipated Star Fox 2. Aside from the Walmart SNAFU, there has been no way to buy it just yet. The Walmart thing was a foul-up, but you can look forward to pre-order availability from most of the major retailers - Nintendo doesn't name which ones - toward the end of August.

Pre-orders for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition will officially kick off later this month, Nintendo announced today. The retailer had accidentally let people order the not-quite-console from its website before the official launch date.

In a post on Facebook, the Japanese gaming giant said it appreciated the incredible anticipation for the SNES Classic Edition and confirmed that pre-orders by various retailers will be made available later this month.




Nintendo also said a "significant amount of additional systems will be shipped", for launch day and "throughout the balance of the calendar year". The waiting game was doomed to continue.

Still, don't be surprised to see the SNES Classic Edition become a hard to find item rather quickly. It's great that Nintendo claims it will have a "significant amount" of SNES Classic Edition units, but that's not exactly reassuring.
