Super NES Classics sold out across the nation in September, and many fans were left empty handed, including yours truly. The sought after system has since hit the resell market, typically found for around $300 CAD. But don’t go breaking the bank quite yet.
The Super NES Classic Edition will be back in stock for American video game stores GameStop and ThinkGeek this week, according to Nintendo. The super popular system sold out instantly when it was released late this past September. Nothing was said about the console returning to the Canadian market, though we can deduce that it will be coming in the next few weeks.
Last month, Nintendo of America’s president Reggie Fils-Aime said that there would be plenty of SNES Classics released in time for the holidays, in all markets. Fils-Aime also confirmed that last year’s original Nintendo Entertainment Classic Edition would return to production soon, supposedly finding its way to shelves Summer 2018.
I’ll be aiming to be the first one lined up when the Canadian restocking is announced. I parted ways with my Super Nintendo and game collection earlier this year trying to pay the rent, and I’ve missed it ever since. Acquiring the SNES classic won’t quite fill that void, but it will soothe the aching nostalgia.
So unless you’ve got $300 you’re willing to blow on the resell market, sit tight, be patient and you’ll be rewarded. If you’re willing to brave those line ups anyway.
