SNES Classic In Stock Online Updates

SNES Classic In Stock Online Updates

The SNES Classic Edition comes with 21 games pre-installed on it, including a legitimately impressive array of titles ranging from Final Fantasy III to Super Mario World. Here's everything you need to know about buying one.

The much-anticipated follow-up to last year's NES Classic Edition, the SNES Classic Edition (or Mini for those in Europe and Australia), is almost here.

Your best chance of getting a SNES Classic on launch day is by going to brick-and-mortar store and taking one to the checkout counter. Most notably, it also includes Star Fox 2, a game which was completed but never officially released publicly.

"Nintendo will ship more units of the system on launch day in the USA than were shipped of the NES Classic Edition system all previous year", reads a line in press releases that Nintendo issued Thursday morning and earlier this month. Customers who arrive early enough will receive a ticket, presumably ensuring them a console if they wait for the store to open.

When does the Nintendo Classic Mini SNES go on sale? While retailers in the United States like Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and others will be offering the console in physical stores, you might want to try your luck by going online.

Maria to pass to the distant north tonight
Hatteras and Ocracoke islands lost about 10,000 visitors to evacuation orders earlier in the week, the Associated Press reported. But because Maria is a large hurricane, tropical storm-force winds of up to 73 mph are possible up to 230 miles from its center.

I tried out the SNES Classic, and found that Nintendo has made some small but meaningful improvements to it over the NES Classic. Available quantities are unknown at this stage, but considering the large number of pre-orders, we suspect the number will be small.

GameStop and ThinkGeek did tell us that they would sell the $79.99 SNES Classic also online.

Surely Nintendo anticipates that thousands, if not millions, of gamers, will want to purchase the #SNES Classic on launch day.

ThinkGeek: There aren't many of these GameStop-owned stores in the country, but if you happen to live near one, it might not be a bad idea to check it out on Friday.

Finally, here are links to the online landing pages for the SNES Classic Edition at each of the stores listed above. For specifics, you can check out our SNES Classic Edition review and SNES Classic Edition review roundup.
