Other retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Target will periodically announce small quantities of new stock that will sell out seconds after they become available. After Switch pre-orders opened up, it took about a day for them to sell out across the US.
Update: Pre-orders haven't gone live again yet, but people who snagged some overnight are already flooding eBay with offers typically topping $200 a pop. Process cartridges. 4. Produce Super NES Classic Edition.
It's also not a bad idea to visit nearby brick and mortar locations of the above stores in person to inquire about pre-orders.
A delightfully '90s-centric advertisement showing off the Super NES Classic Edition was released by Nintendo on Tuesday (seen in parts above), and it provides a ton of details about the system.
The SNES Classic Edition is scheduled to launch on September 29 and comes with twenty-one pre-installed games. The system is pre-loaded with 21 games and will cost $79.99. The list includes several popular names, plus the never-released Star Fox 2. The SNES Classic is no different, with a mini version of the SNES (different regions get different variants which is cool). The biggest innovation is a new rewind feature that lets you dial back the many mistakes you'll be making when playing the SNES Classic's challenging old-school titles.
