Nintendo Confirms SNES Classic Edition Pre-Ordering For Later This Month
Nintendo fans have been vigilantly scouting the internet for news on the availability of the SNES Classic Edition ever since the nostalgic device’s existence was confirmed by Nintendo in late June. When the announcement of the SNES Classic Edition was made, it seemed that Nintendo was well aware of the issues people had with attempting to purchase the NES Classic Edition by acknowledging that “significantly more” SNES Classics would be produced and shipped to retailers. However, some fans went through an emotional roller coaster recently with the faulty early pre-orders available on Walmart’s website. To appease these and other potential customers, Nintendo has confirmed that SNES Classic Edition pre-ordering will officially take place later this month.
Nintendo released the post seen above today announcing that pre-orders for the SNES Classic Edition will be open to the public some time before the end of August. It would seem quite likely that this would be in response to the recent Walmart pre-ordering troubles. This post also reaffirms their intent to supplement supply of the SNES Classic with a “significant amount of additional systems” both on the machine’s release date and the remainder of the year.
So far, the retailers that will be offering pre-orders have not been confirmed, but the likely candidates would be GameStop, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Toys R Us, and more common game-selling retailers. Hopefully, more fans are able to have access to this high-demand nostalgia-heavy item than the last one Nintendo released, so that they can play with power. Nintendo Power, that is.
