When it first came out, the NES Classic was in such a huge demand that Nintendo’s supply just could not keep up with it. It did not help too that, at that time, Nintendo claimed that the system was not going to see a reprint.
But of course, Nintendo has done a 180 turn and said that their money printing consoles will be back onto shelves. In a Tweet by Nintendo of America, Nintendo promises that the NES Classic will continually be restocked through the end of the year, meaning you do not need to resort to paying scalper prices for an NES Classic.
#NESClassic Edition is back! Play the system that started it all with 30 of the best retro games. Check your local retailers for availability as the system will continually be restocked through the end of the year. https://t.co/HZ63QoStdO pic.twitter.com/4M7hflQdiv
