Nintendo NES is coming back on June 29

Nintendo NES is coming back on June 29

The tiny, retro Nintendo console that was almost impossible to snag 18 months ago will return to store shelves this summer.

Back in September of a year ago, Nintendo announced the NES Classic would be returning to shelves, but they've kept us on tenterhooks ever since. From the Switch to the NES and SNES Classic Editions, Nintendo has failed to make enough devices to satisfy the demand for them. A Sega Genesis Mini is set for release later this year.

The NES Classic is a mini version of the 1980's console and costs $59.99. The video game company saw the overwhelming demand for the product and chose to introduce a new wave of the classic systems. Proving to be just as popular as its predecessor, Nintendo handled stock of its SNES Classic significantly better, paving the way for the return of the NES Classic.

"#NESClassic Edition will return to stores on June 29!" the tweet from Nintendo reads. Nintendo didn't reveal how many units will be available, so hopefully the company learned its lesson from the last time it released the NES Classic. The SNES Classic Edition is expected to hit shelves later this year though an official launch date hasn't been announced. " Said Nintendo on Twitter". A full list of games available on the NES Classic can be found here. It comes with classic games like Super Mario Bros 3., Metroid and The Legend of Zelda. Here's the Nintendo Entertainment System games list so far. Creating a family group lets up to eight people share a membership, even on different consoles.
