In an uncommon move of Nintendo giving its fans exactly what they asked for, Nintendo’s obscenely popular mini-consoles have a new lease on life.
Last year’s NES Classic, the impossible to find and prematurely discontinued throwback console, will rise from the ashes and return to store shelves next summer. Whether or not it will only remain in production during that period, and the number of units available, remains unknown.
The Super NES Classic’s lifecycle now extends into 2018. How far into next year is unknown. But this news, on top of Nintendo vehemently assuring fans that there will be plenty of SNES’ to go around, should undoubtedly allow those who missed on on the pre-order fiasco to exhale in relief.
For more on the Super NES Classic, here are a few reasons why you may have missed out on pre-ordering one.
