The NES Classic Edition was a prized stocking stuffer during the holiday 2016 shopping season, and Nintendo’s production was completely unable to keep up with demand. After a lengthy absence, Nintendo finally began restocking the coveted plug-and-play console last month, but it quickly sold out at most retailers. If you haven’t been able to get your hands on one yet, don’t panic! There’s still time.
Nintendo of America tweeted out yesterday to let fans know about the return of the NES Classic Edition, prompting fans to check with their local retailers. These things don’t sit on shelves for long, but Nintendo says they’ll continually restock them until the end of 2018. As usual, we’ll keep you up to date on major restocks when we see them. Happy hunting!
