Super Nintendo mini-console is your new must-have obsession

The SNES Classic Releases Tomorrow and How Can You Get One

Nintendo SNES Classic Edition Teardown Reveals Same Hardware As NES Classic

Past year saw the release of the popular Pokémon Go and Super Mario Run games for mobile devices, along with the hybrid Switch console, which made its debut in April to mostly stellar reviews and high demand.

The Super NES Classic Edition has finally been released and people everywhere are still standing in line hoping to get their hands on one.

All in all, the SNES Classic's launch has been infinitely smoother than its predecessor's, and your chances of picking one up (if you haven't already) are looking pretty good. It's smaller and comes with over 20 games pre-installed, so you can play it right out of the box - though you won't be able to play your old SNES cartridges on this new device.

The SNES Classic retails for $80, and features a library of 21 pre-loaded games. "If you wanted a system and were willing to get to a store kind of early, you likely got one".

The SNES Classic is not easy to find, but online retailers like Amazon and even ThinkGeek should carry it again soon.




GameStop: In an email earlier this week, a GameStop representative told us that their stores will have "additional consoles for in-store, walk-in purchases".

No longer will you have to begin your stories with, "You kids don't know how lucky you have it with video games these days", because after they take a turn on the SNES, they'll know firsthand.

But it could mean that Nintendo will literally have millions of SNES Classics waiting for buyers at launch. Gamestop was getting limited numbers of the system, so there's no guarantee you can nab one, but if you've got a store near you it might be worth checking.

It's hard to imagine that today's youth would want to play 16-bit games on an outmoded system when they are accustomed to ergonomic controllers, powerful processors, surround-sound audio and high-definition screens.

The SNES Classic is sold at the following stores online.
