Good news for those who missed out on the NES Classic (and no, I’m not referring to the Nintendo Classic Mini Famicom at Play-Asia, and the SNES Classic pre-orders.
In a press release today (and on Nintendo Europe’s Twitter), Nintendo announced that “[d]ue to incredible demand for the upcoming [SNES Classic], Nintendo plans to ship the retro-inspired product into 2018. Originally, shipments were announced to cease at the end of this calendar year.” This apparently applies both to Europe and North America.
In addition, the press release states that the NES Classic (which was discontinued back in April, and given the scalper treatment with ridiculous prices) will return on an unspecified date in summer 2018. Nintendo adds that more units of the SNES Classic will be shipped on launch day in the US than what the NES Classic shipped in the entirety of last year, with shipments “arriving in stores regularly.”
Given the fact that the NES Classic sold approximately 1.5 million units in just under a year, Nintendo would be foolish to let this opportunity to cater to gamers’ nostalgia pass them by. The SNES Classic will arrive in stores on September 29th.
