The SNES Classic Releases Tomorrow and How Can You Get One

Nintendo SNES Classic Edition Teardown Reveals Same Hardware As NES Classic

Nintendo is banking on nostalgia to drive sales during its release of the SNES classic.

This may sound familiar: Nintendo did a similar re-release of their original home gaming console, the Nintendo Entertainment System, with the NES Classic. So if you're looking to pick one up this Christmas, be prepared to shop around.

How incredible is the Super Nintendo - with games like Super Mario World, Mario Kart, Starfox, Donkey Kong Country, it's loved by an entire generation of gamers. But whether you'll be able to find it in stores is unclear.

For 79.99, the bundle comes pre-loaded with 21 games and two controllers along with never seen before titles like Star Fox 2.

Some may be concerned that these rips will impact the sales of the SNES Classic Edition, but fear not - the console sold out during its pre-order period and is now selling like mad, with production expected to dramatically increase to accommodate for the high demand. The original was the best-selling video game console of its time. On an SNES Classic Controller, the Y button can double as B, and X can double as A. The same setup applies if you're playing with a Wii Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro hooked up to your NES Classic.

Target - Target unfortunately isn't selling systems online yet, but they do have a splash page up for the system. The launch inventory of the SNES Classic has sold out in the first 24 hours. Consoles are now being sold online for quadruple the suggested retail price and Nintendo hasn't been clear on when more will be made available.

Although the SNES Classic Mini was a no show at E3 2017, we now have the official word from Nintendo about the mini console. In the USA it will be $79 and in the United Kingdom the SNES Classic price is £69 (although some retailers initially listed it at £79). Maybe they'll try to sell these games piecemeal, assuming they can get the licenses at all.

The process of extracting the Star Fox 2 ROM may not have been that hard, as the SNES Classic and the NES Classic use the same type of internal hardware, with only the shell and software differing. GameStop and ThinkGeek stores will have units available for walk-in shoppers.

But no one could find it. Nintendo didn't know it had gold in its hands.
