I've got some great news for those of you who didn't get their hands on an NES Classic! Nintendo has announced that they will be releasing more of them next year in 2018. That's right, after saying they wouldn't make anymore, Nintendo plans on resurrecting it from the dead and this time they will be ready for the popular demand!
The mini retro console is scheduled to be released on September 29th of 2018 and it will include 30 games including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and more. This is on top of the SNES Classic, which is supposed to be released September 29th, 2017.
I'm just happy that I'll have a chance to finally get one! I'm definitely going to grab one for myself. Are you?!
Here's the official press release that Nintendo released:
Due to incredible demand for the upcoming Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, Nintendo plans to ship the retro-inspired product into 2018. Originally, shipments were announced to cease at the end of this calendar year.
In addition, more units of Super NES Classic Edition will ship on its Sept. 29 launch day in the U.S. than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all last year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly. Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves.
The Super NES Classic Edition system features 21 legendary Super NES games such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Metroid. Launching on Sept. 29 at a suggested retail price of only $79.99, Super NES Classic Edition plugs directly into the TV using the provided HDMI cable, and comes with two wired controllers.
Next summer, Nintendo will also bring back the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system with new shipments. More information about the timing of the return of NES Classic Edition will be announced in the future.
NES Classic Edition features 30 classic NES games such as the original Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong.
