Nintendo increases production of Super NES Classic edition

Ask LH: What Are My Chances Of Getting A Mini SNES On Launch Day?

The announcement of its return came just two weeks before the company will launch its second miniature-sized console: the SNES Classic Edition ($80).

If you were one of the thousands who missed the opportunity to purchase one of the NES Classic Edition a year ago, Nintendo is offering you a new chance in 2018, with the nostalgic console being back in production for a planned 2018 re-release.

On the topic of eager customers wanting to secure a SNES Classic Mini while they can, Fils-Aimé offered some advice.

Nintendo is bringing back the Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition next summer and greatly increasing the shipments of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition this year, the company announced this morning.

Nintendo attributed the decision to stop production to "limited resources".

The NES Mini, or the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System as it's known here in the United Kingdom, launched previous year and included 30 classic 8-bit games for around £60.

It remains unlikely that it'll be easy to find the Super Nintendo this holiday, but it sounds like Nintendo is making a major effort to make it somewhat more doable. Then after the cancellation of the NES Classic, prices skyrocketed even further.

"Due to incredible demand for the upcoming Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, Nintendo plans to ship the retro-inspired product into 2018". New units of the NES Classic-the first Nintendo gaming system to be released in the USA back in 1985-won't be available until summer of 2018 at Best Buy, GameStop and a number of other retailers.

Nintendo fans have been having a lot of problems pre-ordering the SNES Classic Edition from various retailers online. The system was originally launched in November 2016 for $59.99.

Recently Atari revealed their new Ataribox, another retro console with a current twist that looks set to perfectly channel the feeling of the original Atari 2600.

The release of the $79.99 SNES Classic Edition is drawing closer.
