NES Classic Edition Will Make Its Return Next Month
When the NES Classic Edition was released in November 2016, it became an overnight sensation. The device flew off of shelves and remained out of stock seemingly until it was discontinued. Of course, it would pop up from time to time, but it would disappear just as soon as it arrived. That being said, Nintendo has announced that the little nostalgia box will be returning to stores next month.
Nintendo took to their Twitter account to announce the return of the NES Classic Edition. It is set to make its triumphant return on June 29, and it will remain in stores “through the end of the year.” It is mentioned that the SNES Classic will also be available through this time. Check out the tweet for yourself:

It’s unknown if this run of units will still have the annoyingly short controller wire, but it would appear that nothing has been changed. It will include the same 30 games, come with one controller, and remain priced at $59.99. The Japanese Nintendo Mini Famicom will also be returning for the fun.
When the NES Classic Edition was discontinued, the SNES version was announced practically immediately. With a little bit of luck, gamers might just get the N64 Classic of their dreams when this run of mini-consoles is finished. Only time will tell.
The NES Classic Edition will be available to purchase on June 29th. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming news going on right now, check out the following:
