NES Classic Available Again At Best Buy Today

Clark ByrdJul 02, 2018

The NES Classic comes with 30 built-in games.

An announcement from Nintendo confirmed the return of the NES Classic Edition.

Whether a casual fan of Mario and Zelda or a lifelong gamer dedicated to reviving 8-bit classics into the modern gaming era, the recent news that a new supply of NES Classics is about to hit the hands of consumers this summer comes as very welcome news indeed. If you're one of those retro seekers still aiming for that chance to bag the revamped NES Mini Classic console, then this is your chance.

Less expensive, coming in at a suggested retail price of almost half of its former iteration at $25 (the NES30 model sold for ~$40), the N30 is sleeker than its predecessor as well. They first released the updated version in 2016, selling out in record time.

Demand was high enough last time that some stores are once again predicting shortages, though Nintendo has promised that it'll keep stock available and flowing throughout the end of the year on both the NES and SNES Classic.

For those of you who want to order the system instead of picking it on at a store, Best Buy now has it in stock online.

However, do not be surprised if retailers limit this to one item per-person in order to combat scalpers.

We also add an extra original NES Classic controller, which I pre-ordered on Amazon.de for 13 Euro ($15). The NES Classic Edition will arrive by July 3 if purchased Friday, according to GameStop, and customers can check availability by calling their local store ahead of time. Several sources report that the latter already shows that the product is in stock. Online outlets are more convenient but they're also far riskier as stock can go within a matter of seconds, leaving potential buyers frustrated and empty-handed.

The NES Classic Edition was sold out on Target's website as of Friday morning, but it's possible products are still available in stores.
