Edit: My initial pre-order was indeed canceled. BUT I was able to line up and buy one from Target. Check out my Instagram for the picture I posted when we were able to get it! Warning, I look pretty tired. I should play mine more often, I played it heavily the month I got it though.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
I was recently able to pre-order the Super Nintendo Classic Console this past Friday (fingers crossed that it won’t be canceled).
I’m sure by now, most of you will know that Nintendo announced that they were releasing a retro Super Nintendo console which is a throwback to the original that was released in the early 90s. With the same idea as the NES console re-release, this version will be smaller and will be pre-loaded with some of the console’s most popular releases. Some examples are Super Mario World, Super Metroid, and Contra III Alien Wars.
Like most Nintendo products, pre-orders are a must. The original NES console re-release was plagued with availability issues; it was and still is a very rare commodity in the wild. I highly suggest everyone to visit Best Buy, Target, Amazon etc and sign up for email notifications. Have your credit card information ready and be ready to make a quick purchase when it becomes available. Utilize twitter and every tool available for you to ensure you have the best chances of finding a pre-order. Nowinstock.net is also a very great tool: you can set email and text notifications for various “rare” products.
I grew up on the Super Nintendo, and many of my fondest memories stem from that console. The Super Nintendo was my first console and I’m very excited to own one again. Check out the pictures for the retail box art and included games!
