Super NES Classic Edition pre-orders will be at six retailers in North America, GameStop possibly today

Posted on August 22, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

The Super NES Classic Edition website has updated with some pre-order news for North America. In total, six retailers will be accepting reservations. These include Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Toys “R” Us, and Walmart.

Both Best Buy and Amazon took pre-orders earlier today… at some ridiculous times, especially for those on the East Coast like myself. We did not report on those, and I’m terribly sorry for that. Nick was having some issues on his end, and Matt isn’t really familiar with the pre-order situation as our European correspondent – not to mention the tons of Gamescom news that dropped earlier today keeping him busy. We were also expecting Nintendo to provide specifics about the pre-order situation, but that didn’t happen, and as much as I’d like to be, I can’t be watching over things the full 24 hours each day – or I’d probably die.

With all of that said, we’ll be keeping track of pre-orders as best we can. GameStop pre-orders may actually begin later today. Employees are being told to expect a “special announcement that will require immediate attention”, so stay tuned.

    It’s a shame that the two retailers I relied on most (Best Buy, Amazon) have failed me.

      I signed up for an alert on Amazon, yet nothing.

    Unacceptable that you do not stay 24/7 available for NE! Now serious, it was unlucky for the Americas because of the timezone (here in Europe I could pre-order without problems), but hopefully there will be more units distributed in the websites quoted in the article. I hope everybody gets one before the scalpers this time =D

    Glad I was up late on the west coast to get my preorder. Sucks for the east coast people though. Hopefully the other retailers open orders at decent times for oother time zones.

    Don’t feel bad about missing the pre orders, Brian, Nintendo made it so that it was difficult and confusing for everyone involved. Not many people are awake at the times they let those loose

    ah ok I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any posts about the preorders but I appreciate the transparency and honesty!

  • ronin4life

    This is nonsense. I already pre ordered this fair and square, during normal operating hours, and had it canceled…. so that these sh*tty retailers could offer them up for pre order only when scalpers would be awake?

    Bull. Sh*t.
