SNES Classic Edition will ship into 2018, NES Classic Edition will return to stores in all regions

Posted on September 12, 2017 by (@OnePunchMaz) in General Nintendo, News

Nintendo has just announced that “due to the incredible demand” for the system, the SNES Classic Edition will ship into 2018, instead of ending shipments this year, as was originally announced. Nintendo also reiterated that more SNES Classic Editions will be available on its launch day, September 29th, than there were shipped of the NES Classic Edition all last year.

Speaking of – Nintendo also announced that it has resumed production of the NES Classic Edition, which will be available in stores again in 2018. Nintendo has made similar announcements for Japan and Europe, so there should be plenty of both systems available all around the world next year.

Below is the North American press release in full:

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.

    Is this the real life?

      Is this just fantasy?

      • Fernando Silva

        Caught in a landslide,

  • Supporter

    Wow. Nintendo, you did it! This is absolutely fantastic news!

  • Locky Mavo

    So this is what Reggie was talking about?

    Reggie: “I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites . . . You shouldn’t [have to] pay more than $79.99.”

    • Mark

      Yeah, and the Nintendo Everything comment section was almost 100% derision and hate after Reggie’s comments. Reggie doesn’t usually make a statement if he can’t back it up. Which is why there’s a lot of times that he chooses to not really make a real statement.

      Kinda gives me some hope for Mother 3, after his comments earlier this year.

    The production of the NES classic was halted I feel due to hackers. The system was busted wide open and “unofficial” games put on it. I am willing to bet that the “new” NES classic (LOL) will have that exploit patched.

    • JJ

      Probably halted to make mfg. space for the SNES Classic. They have apparently expanded their manufacturing capabilities of both. All I have to say is bring on the N64 and Gameboy Classics!

      • cloud36426

        I hope it doesn’t affect VC on the Switch though. I would rather have them on the go.

    • Exy

      It was halted because it was always scheduled to.

      • People forget that. Which, yeah, that sucked. But they were always forward about that.

  • JJ

    I wonder if the’ll be improving the NES Classic in any way or adding/changing the games selection. Surely they also will produce more NES Classic controllers for player #2.

  • Exy

    I really hope that NES Classic Electric Boogaloo is a revised model with things like longer controller cords and a second controller, because it’s nutty to me that there had to be third party accessories for what was always planned as a seasonal item.

    • Radish

      Yeah, they really need longer cords. The controllers being made by Nintendo was the whole attraction to me in the first place, so I hope they fix that problem (since they pretty much acknowledged that was a mistake).

      • Exy

        If it’s the same model as last time, I will probably not get it, because it would take a lot for me to consider buying an NES thing in the first place and these issues aren’t helping.

        • Radish

          I will definitely be getting one, even if its just to…..shhh hack shhh it 😉

          • Exy

            I wanted to get one just to mod it, but it didn’t have the potential I was expecting. SNES Classic just might.

    Something something artificial scarcity

    BALONEY !!!! If two to four units per store is what this means by “restocking” then you all been clicked-bait !
