SNES Classic pre-orders opening up later this month


We know it's arriving on September 22, and a few different retailers have independently confirmed that they'll offer pre-orders for the device.

The SNES Classic Edition, in case you've been living in a cave for the past month or so, is a tiny version of the original Super Nintendo Entertainment System, complete with controllers that match the original. It also says more systems will be shipped to stores throughout 2017.

Unfortunately, Nintendo didn't clarify exactly which retailers would be opening their SNES Classic pre-orders, nor did it provide an exact date. Yet it's now August, but there's still no official pre-orders available.

"We. can confirm that it will be made available for pre-order by various retailers late this month", the gaming giant posted on Facebook regarding the SNES Classic a short time ago. The company will also be making units available "throughout the balance of the calendar year". (More on the NES Classic in our hands-on.) There was just one problem: It was nearly impossible to buy the darn thing.

How thoughtful. Nintendo finally answers the demand of the consumer, giving the public another retro feel: Nintendo actually having enough consoles on the shelves. The console is incredibly hard to get now just because of fans placing legitimate orders. That got people wondering; is North America even getting pre-orders of the SNES Classic?
