SNES Classic pre-orders will go live later this month

SNES Classic pre-orders go live later this month, says Nintendo Nintendo promises SNES Classic pre-orders soon, because chaos trumps order in 2017

If you missed out on Nintendo's NES Classic system, that they for some reason decided to make a limited edition despite a tremendous demand, then you're probably eagerly anticipating the Super NED Classic Edition system slated for release next month. People scrambled to get their hands on the device, only to find out a few days later that Walmart didn't plan to honor the pre-orders. It's great that Nintendo claims it will have a "significant amount" of SNES Classic Edition units, but that's not exactly reassuring.

Nintendo didn't announce which retailers would make pre-ordering available, but Business Insider suspects it will be "the usual suspects" like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop.

There may be more SNES Mini in stock, but we recommend keeping an eye out; though we'll let you know when pre-orders go live, the console is likely to sell out before you can say "Super Mario World".

Nintendo just updated its official Facebook page with an encouraging message to all of you who are looking forward to picking up a Super NES Classic Edition.

Nintendo began pre-orders in the United Kingdom weeks ago. The regular NES Classic was in high demand but not so high supply, and Nintendo has been accused of keeping stock short on objective.

Nintendo has promised to ramp up production this time around but given its track record and the sky-high demand, there's no reason for consumers to believe with any degree of certainty that they will be able to pick up a system on launch day without a pre-order.

The Super NES Classic Edition launches on September 29 and will contain 21 games.

That would be a significant boost, compared with last year's NES Classic, which proved immensely hard to get once the pre-order period was over.
