The NES and SNES Mini are coming back, pre-orders now open

16 May 2018

The retro NES console was first released in 2016 and comes preloaded with 30 classic games. Expect them back in stock on June 29.

You can pre-order the NES Mini and SNES Mini now from a variety of retailers, though most are putting a one-per-customer restriction in place.

Nintendo recently announced that the NES Classic will be returning soon, as a restock of the favorite device is set to drop later this Summer.

The company will retain the original pricing for both consoles.

"The NES Classic Edition system is a miniaturized version of the groundbreaking NES, originally released in 1985."
Pre-orders sold out in advance of the launch and those hoping to buy one in-store were met with long lines and empty shelves. However, copious amounts of fan outcry did the trick. And, assuming Nintendo actually believes they're ready to roll through the rest of 2018, there's no need to get in a street fight or sell your kidney to add one to your retro collection this time around.
"Just plug the NES Classic Edition into your TV, pick up that gray controller, and rediscover the joy of NES games."
Also, you can choose from several display modes, ranging from Pixel Perfect to CRT filter and a 4:3 ratio.

Not only was it smaller than the original NES but there was also no cartridge port for those that wanted to play other legacy games, but enthusiasts soon worked out how to install their own software on the machine, a technique that was replicated for the Super NES Classic Edition.
