Available stock is one of the big concerns with the just-announced Super NES Classic Edition. As we saw with the NES Classic Edition, it was extremely difficult for most consumers to order a unit, and shipments ceased only a few months after the initial launch.
Perhaps we won’t have to be quite as worried with the Super NES Classic Edition. In an official statement, Nintendo says it will make “significantly more units” in comparison to the NES Classic Edition.
The company’s full statement reads:
“We aren’t providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.
Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is currently planned to ship from Sept. 29 until the end of calendar year 2017. At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year.
