Nintendo Is Giving The NES Classic An Extra Life In 2018

SNES Classic Pre-order Shortage not Caused by Nintendo Says Reggie Fils-Aime

The SNES Classic will ship through 2018, reversing Nintendo's original plan to similarly discontinue the product at the end of the calendar year.

In a press release, the company is now claiming more Super NES Classic Editions will be available in stores for its September 29 launch than NES Classic Editions throughout all of 2016, "with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly".

Speaking at the time, the company said: "Throughout April, [Nintendo of America] territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year".

This news follows on from the confirmation by Nintendo of Japan that it'd restart production on the much sought after retro console.

The President of Nintendo of America wants to reassure fans that they won't have to resort to auction sites for a SNES Classic Mini.

The NES Classic Edition features 30 classic NES games such as the original Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo previously hinted in June that it would deliver "significantly more" SNES Classic consoles than the NES Classic from a year ago. Nintendo's remade classic 16-bit console is due to become available from 29 September, priced at US$80.


According to Business Insider, one Nintendo representative had stated in June, "We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition".

It seemed Nintendo managed to underestimate the demand for their compact console back in 2016, because at launch the NES Classic became nearly impossible to get a hold of, leaving many potential buyers frustrated and NES-less.

The announcement was made via Nintendo's Japanese Twitter account.

Nintendo gave no further details, including the reason why fans will have to wait so long.
