NES Classic back in stock for a limited time

  • Nintendo NES Classic

The gaming company announced the popular console will be hitting stores once again. They first released the updated version in 2016, selling out in record time.

You can preorder 8BitDo's controller now, but it won't be released until August 20. Nintendo expects the system to be available for the rest of the year, as they mentioned on Twitter back in May. An Allwinner R16 microchip that's served by four different ARM Cortex-A7 provides most of the NES Classic's power, though an ARM Mali 400 MP2 GPU takes care of images on the screen.

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.

Though you can't exactly slot original cartridges in the diminutive NES Classic given its rather small physical size, there are 30 games included on the console.

What time does NES Classic go on sale?

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.


The biggest change is the addition of a dedicated home button, something Nintendo still hasn't added, even with the SNES Classic follow-up.

This includes large retailers like Amazon and GameStop, but there are plenty that should ideally have them in stock as well, and if you need reminding this comes pre-loaded with plenty of classic games to keep you entertained as well.

To prevent resellers from taking advantage of the restock, most retailers will impose a limit of one console per customer. You can, of course, plug an SNES Classic controller into an NES Classic (or vice-versa), but we're assuming that you're looking to make one purchase, not two.

If you missed out on snagging the NES Classic Mini in 2016, will you be picking up the system this year?

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. It is available not just online, but in many brick and mortar stores as well.
