Here's How Long You'll Have To Buy The Super NES Classic

Marcus Stewart



When Nintendo pulled the plug on the NES Classic Edition back in April, they explained the mini-console was never meant to be a long-term product despite never marketing it as a limited-time item. That rubbed a lot of folks the wrong way, and the company seems to have learned its lesson by divulging in advance the availability window for the Super NES Classic Edition: about three months.
In an statement to Business Insider, Nintendo reveals the console will hit stores September 29 and remain in production “until the end of calendar year 2017.” The company has no information on shipments beyond this year. 
At least Nintendo is giving consumers a head’s up this time. But if the fight for the Super NES Classic wasn’t going to be intense already, the news of its short life-cycle has likely increased the already zealous demand. As of this writing, US pre-orders have not yet opened. Happy hunting!
