After the huge success of the NES Classic Edition, it was only a matter of time before we started to get mini remakes of other OG consoles, such as the SNES Classic Edition. Then Walmart came along and opened pre-orders for the system, only to cancel them a short time later. As of right now, you can’t pre-order the SNES Classic, but if this week’s events taught us anything, it’s that we need to be prepared.
Below you will find the most likely retailers that will offer the SNES Classic Edition mini console in the US, as well as links to their online marketplaces. Keep these handy for when the SNES Classic Edition is available for pre-orders again. In fact, it might be wise to have a friend or family member at the ready as well, since some of the pages are likely to straight-up crash due to traffic when the pre-order period begins.
How to Pre-Order the SNES Classic Edition
Pre-order the SNES Classic Edition at Target
The SNES Classic Edition will be released into the wild on September 29, 2017, but pre-orders are likely to begin (or begin again) any day now. The cost listed by Nintendo is $79.99 USD, but this of course depends on the country you’re buying from, or the country your preferred retailer is located. Failing to land an SNES Classic Edition through a legitimate retailer likely means you’ll pay through the nose on eBay, and nobody wants that.
For full details on what the system looks like, has included in the bundle, and details on all 21 games shipping with it, check out the official SNES Classic Edition website from Nintendo.
Of course, the SNES Classic Edition mini console is likely to be limited in supply and crazy popular, so make sure you bookmark this page and stay ready to drop a pre-order the minute they open.
