Many Nintendo fans are worried that they may not be able to get their hands on the upcoming retro gaming system, the SNES Classic Edition. While the NES Classic suffered from various supply issues and was eventually discontinued after about half a year, Nintendo is looking to give everyone a better chance to purchase the SNES Classic.

Today on Nintendo’s Facebook page, the company announced that they will be taking preorders for the console through various retailers this month, something that did not happen with the NES Classic. Additionally, Nintendo also said they will ship
“a significant amount of additional systems” in order to meet demand. Overall, it sounds like they’re more properly prepared for the SNES Classic release this time. You can read their full statement below:

“We appreciate the incredible anticipation that exists for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, and can confirm that it will be made available for pre-order by various retailers late this month.

“A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year.”

Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
