Just earlier this month, Walmart cancelled all pre-orders for the upcoming release of the Super Nintendo Classic Console. This had many extremely upset and rather confused. Nintendo has finally spoke on the confusion by confirming that later this month pre-orders will be available to a number of retail stores.
It is expected that pre-orders will sell out rather fast, and Nintendo is preparing for this by shipping extra quantities to stores on top of the pre-orders. Nintendo said the following:
“A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year,”
The SNES Classic is expected to outsell the NES Classic that was released last year. The console will retail at $79.99 and will hit stores come September 29th of this year. Us here at Beyond will keep you posted once an official date for pre-orders is announced.
