The NES Classic comes back from the deadNintendo will officially be re-releasing the NES Classic back to retail on June 29, oh, and the SNES Classic is still available too.
Back from the dead and on sale again Friday, June 29th is the NES classic. That's right, that totally unattainable box that people paid out the notes for on Ebay, the thing that sold out everywhere is being Manufactured once again. First released in November 2016, the small replica contains 30 pre-installed NES classic games and one controller for $60. Nintendo ended production of the console soon after its release, much to the chagrin of many who weren't able to grab on during its original run. But now, there's another chance to own one. It's still a good idea to jump on it when you can, because we still expect stock to be somewhat limited. However, Nintendo says the NES classic will be available through the end of the year. Now, it's not just the NES classic that will be back on sale, the SNES classic will sit alongside its older brother too. But the SNES classic never really went away. Nintendo made good on its promise to make more of that one, which wasn't ever that difficult to secure. So where can you find the resurrected NES classic? Stores like GameStop and Best Buy are expecting to be receiving regular deliveries, though other retailers will definitely be stocking the as well. And of course, buying online is also an option. Just a heads up in regards to the NES classic, the controller cord is actually really short so you may wanna look into getting a third party extension cable.
