NES Classic Edition back in June / SNES Classic Edition available until the end of the year / Famicom Mini Jump

NES Classic Edition

Last year, Nintendo announced that production for the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition (known as Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe, and Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer in Japan) would resume in 2018, with availability planned for this Summer.

And today, the company finally announced when the console would be back in stores:

  • Japan: June 28th
  • North America (including Canada): June 29th
  • Europe: June 29th
  • Australia: June 29th

Nintendo specifies that the console is expected to be available through the end of the year. It’s not clear whether this will be the final run for the NES Classic Edition, but it’s probably safest to assume that it will. In other words, if you really want to buy one at the regular price, this may very well be your last opportunity to do so!

It’s not clear how many units Nintendo has prepared for this re-rerun, but it’s quite likely quantities will be limited. At the very least, there should be more than a couple of shipments this time around!

Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition

Today, Nintendo also announced that the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition (known as Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe, and Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom in Japan) will be available through the end of the year.

In other words, if you’re interested in the console, but haven’t bought one yet: don’t wait too long before doing so, because it’s unlikely there will be a re-run like there will for the NES Classic Edition!
