Nintendo's SNES Classic hits store shelves in much anticipated release

Posted September 30, 2017

It's the follow-up to last year's popular limited-edition Nintendo Entertainment System Classic.

The console is also renowned for featuring some of the best RPGs of the era, including Secret of Mana and various titles from the Final Fantasy franchise. This is not the first re-release for Nintendo.

The SNES Classic launched on the 29th of September and generally speaking, everyone considers it to be a success.

The SNES Classic caps off a strong year for Nintendo.

The game will be available both online and in Target' stores. "That was another complaint with the NES Classic - that the cord was really short". There is no word, as of yet, whether any more stock will be available before the consoles release.

Strangely the listings on GAME and Very now just go to the homepage of each retailer. Maybe they'll try to sell these games piecemeal, assuming they can get the licenses at all.

Target will be selling the Super NES Classic Edition in stores and online on Friday, a Target spokesperson told MONEY.

It's likely that we will be seeing a new classic system every year for the few years. Each store did, however, pass out tickets at open, so if you weren't there at 8am it's pretty much up in the air if you can walk in and find one. "We will definitely get some time in this weekend". Plus, this one comes fully loaded with 21 games! The C64 Mini's library may not be quite as iconic as its Nintendo counterparts, but it's hard to argue against the value of its 64 included games.

The new version still has the original look and feel of the '90s home console, only smaller.

Unfortunately, SNES Classics are still sold out in the UK. Most notably, it also includes Star Fox 2, a game which was completed but never officially released publicly.

Your best chance of getting a SNES Classic on launch day is by going to brick-and-mortar store and taking one to the checkout counter.
