SNES Classic Stock Available at GameStop On Launch Day

SNES Classic Stock available at GameStop

With Nintendo’s SNES Classic console officially launching on Friday September 29, fans looking to relive the console’s glory days are scrambling to locate stores that still have remaining availability for the hot ticket item.  Thankfully, we have some good news for those that live in the US; GameStop has announced that both ThinkGeek and GameStop stores will have SNES Classic stock available for walk-in customers.  

In a recent statement, a representative with GameStop confirmed that ThinkGeek and GameStop stores will have a “limited and varied amount of consoles,” so unfortunately there is still very little guarantee of grabbing an SNES Classic from the first wave of consoles that have been sent out.  That said, the ‘early bird gets the worm’ saying holds some weight here; If you’re looking to grab one before SNES Classic stock runs out, start checking stores early tomorrow.  

Not unlike the NES Classic, the SNES Classic launches with 21 pre-installed games from the console’s library, including Contra III, Final Fantasy III, Kirby Super Star, Secret of Mana, and the previously unreleased Star Fox 2.  The console also includes two wired controllers, for “instant multiplayer action”.  Additionally, the SNES Classic console also comes with a unique Rewind features, which allows players to rewind a minute or so based on the game’s last suspend point.  Each game that comes with the console can save up to four suspend points.

Given Nintendo’s track record of underestimating console demand, it will be interesting to see the numbers once the dust settles after launch day.  To the company’s credit, though, even companies like Toys R Us – which is currently going through bankruptcy – have confirmed that SNES Classic stock will be available on launch day, which suggests that Nintendo has taken some much needed action after the rough launch the NES Classic experienced.  The SNES Classic console will be available for purchase on September 29, 2017. The console retails for $80.
