NES Classic Edition returning to stores in June

Gaming / Nintendo

The NES Classic Edition should be available in a store near you or online retailer at the end of June for $59.99USD.

When it was first released back in 2016, the NES Classic Edition was a hot commodity and sold out fast almost everywhere. It was such a hot ticket item that prices quickly soared from resellers trying to make a quick buck. Unfortunately for consumers, Nintendo in its infinite wisdom decided that there wouldn’t be much demand for it and made it a limited edition run.

It was, however, followed up with the equally popular SNES Classic Edition which featured a different set of games. Unlike its predecessor though, the SNES version has been fairly readily available at suggested retail prices.

For those of us who didn’t get a chance to snag the original NES Classic Edition to sate our nostalgia will have another chance again next month. It sounds like Nintendo is ramping up production again and is stating that both the NES and SNES Classic Editions will be available through the rest of 2018.

Hopefully, the re-released version of the NES Classic will feature longer cables for the controller as that was one of the main complaints about the original release. To refresh your memory, the retro mini system features 30 classic games which include:

  • Balloon Fight™
  • Castlevania™
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
  • Donkey Kong™
  • Donkey Kong Jr.™
  • Dr. Mario™
  • Excitebike™
  • Galaga™
  • Ice Climber™
  • Kid Icarus™
  • Kirby’s Adventure™
  • Mario Bros.™
  • MEGA MAN® 2
  • Metroid™
  • PAC-MAN™
  • Punch-Out!!™ Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics™
  • SUPER C™
  • Super Mario Bros.™
  • Super Mario Bros.™ 2
  • Super Mario Bros.™ 3
  • The Legend of Zelda™
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link™

The NES Classic Edition should be available in a store near you or online retailer at the end of June for $59.99USD.
