SNES Classic Edition pre-orders will open this month, Nintendo promises

SNES Classic pre-orders go live later this month, says Nintendo

You'll be able to pre-order the Super Nintendo Classic Edition starting later this month, Nintendo announced.

Pre-ordering is obviously a good idea if you have your heart set on getting one, but Nintendo said there should be a lot to go around when the system launches this fall. It will cost about $80 and come with 21 pre-loaded games, including the never-before released "Star Fox 2".

In a post on Facebook, the Japanese gaming giant said it appreciated the incredible anticipation for the SNES Classic Edition and confirmed that pre-orders by various retailers will be made available later this month.

Several major USA retailers have said they will offer SNES Classic Edition pre-orders with Walmart being the first to do so last month.

The SNES Classic Edition is a miniaturized version of the original console that works on the TVs of today.

Nintendo began pre-orders in the United Kingdom weeks ago.

Let's hope there will be more stock than what was made available for the NES Classic. That got people wondering; is North America even getting pre-orders of the SNES Classic? Especially with Nintendo only shipping the SNES Classic until the end of 2017, it will surely keep the market rushing to buy the product, considering it would only be selling on the market for a limited amount of time.

"A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day", the post continues, ending with more consoles being sent out to retailers "throughout the balance of the calendar year".
