Nintendo will continue to ship SNES Classic Edition consoles into 2018

The game that gave birth to the legend...of Zelda...appears on NES Classic Mini.

Specifics about the re-release aren't yet known, but overseas Nintendo said it is planning new shipments for the northern hemisphere summer. This resulted in a huge price spike on platforms like eBay and Amazon, as players were forced to turn to third party distributors to get their hands on the console. Something similar happened to Switch in the early days, as well.

After discontinuing the product this spring, Nintendo has announced that it is bringing back the NES Classic Edition in 2018. The package also included one original controller with a short cable and not much more.

Finally, Nintendo has heard our cries and confirmed that they would be re-releasing the #Nes Classic Edition in 2018.

During that time, it seemed that the NES Classic Edition was not viewed as part of the company's future.

Shipments of the system were slated to end at the end of the calendar year.

Facebook/NintendoRetailer giant Walmart has canceled pre-orders of the Nintendo Super NES Classic, citing a mistake with their system.

Nintendo had signaled that the NES Class Edition would not be returning after selling out, upsetting some loyal fans who had hoped to buy the console packed with retro titles. A few months later, in April of previous year, Nintendo announced the end of production of the machine, much to the chagrin of the interested parties, then meant to pay the high price on the sites of sale online in order to offer the precious machine.
