The situation surrounding the Super NES Classic Edition last month pointed to the hardware not being sold in Quebec. It all came down to French language restrictions in the region. However, we’re now hearing that the Super NES Classic Edition will be sold in Quebec after all.
First, check out these two tweets from Toys “R” Us Canada:

This is definitely good news. Whatever issues there were, it sounds like Nintendo cleared everything up.

Nintendo appears to be readying restocks of three Link amiibo. CPSIA certificates for the original Smash Bros. Link, 8-bit Link, and Majora’s Mask Link have been updated. Each one had an additional run of manufacturing in August.
CPSIA pages naturally don’t mention when restocks will be taking place, but these Link amiibo should be showing up again soon. Keep your eyes peeled for movement at retailers in the weeks ahead.
