The NES Classic Edition will return next month

Nevertheless, the Japanese gaming giant declared via Twitter the NES Classic will go back to shops in the US on June 29.

Did you miss out on the NES Classic Edition/NES Classic Mini when it launched (and very quickly disappeared) back in 2016?

The NES Classic ($60), and the more recently released SNES Classic ($80), should remain available to buy through the end of the year, Nintendo added. We know Nintendo too well by this point to not be suspicious of them pulling another stunt like that.

Nintendo also provided an update on the SNES Classic, confirming that stock would be made available for the Mini console until the holiday season.

The news came via a tweet from the official Nintendo of America account. You might want to start lining up at your nearest electronics retailer now, because Nintendo says the NES Classic is coming back next month.

When the Nintendo Switch was preparing to release, they had a gaming console in the market.

Classic was a huge hit because it looked like the original NES and had some of its most popular games. In addition to the lineup from Nintendo, rival Sega announced a mini Genesis console that will be released later this year. The NES Classic Edition was originally released in November 2016 and sold out nearly instantly.

The SNES Classic would be better monitored with Nintendo limiting sales to 1 per customer.

The NES Classic features 30 games, with classics like Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Excitebike and more included.
