A few weeks ago, there was a mistake regarding Super NES Classic Edition preorders. Walmart had a listing and took a number of orders and later canceled them all due to a technical glitch. Now, Nintendo has come forward to confirm that multiple retailers will have Super NES Classic Edition pre-orders in North America this month.
On its Facebook post today, Nintendo confirmed that the console will be made available for pre-order from various retailers late this month. Nintendo did not provide a more specific date, nor did it say which stores would be offering pre-orders.
We appreciate the incredible anticipation that exists for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic…
There have been concerns that, in light of how difficult it was to find the NES Classic Edition, the SNES Classic Edition will face a similar situation. Nintendo again tried to alleviate these worries, stating that “a significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year”. Nintendo previously said its current plan is to only offer the system during 2017, adding that it will offer far more SNES Classic Edition units than it did with the NES model.
