Nintendo's NES Classic Returns Today, And With A Wireless Controller Option

Nintendo’s NES Classic returns to stores after massive hype in limited run, and it’s going fast

No, you didn't misread that, the NES Classic is back in stock.

Nintendo re-released the NES Classic Edition due to its popularity among fans.

Nintendo has today relaunched its popular miniature NES Classic Edition, which is great news for anyone who likes to get some 8-bit gaming action off a weekend, but there is more good news for everyone of a NES persuasion, too. They first released the updated version in 2016, selling out in record time.

If you've been waiting to get your hands on the hard-to-find Nintendo NES Classic, here's your chance.

The NES Classic is available at Walmart for $59.99 - that's cheaper than Amazon, who now only has it available from third-party sellers. It only comes with one controller, but you can get a second one if you want to play multiplayer games. Then Nintendo abruptly ended production of the console, saying it was never meant to be a long term item, and that it needed the factory space to produce other items (like the Switch, another hot seller).

It has been two years since the original launch of the NES Classic Edition. Thankfully, most are limiting orders to one per customer to discourage scalpers.

We also add an extra original NES Classic controller, which I pre-ordered on Amazon.de for 13 Euro ($15). With that, the only trick is to wait for Friday to arrive and keep on hitting the refresh button until a product listing for the NES Classic comes up. Limited quantities will be available at each store, so be sure to pick one up on 6/29 before they're gone.

Also compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. You can check availability on Target's website, and every single local store we checked had the system in stock.

The product appeared to have been available online at ThinkGeek, but the site was sold out by mid-morning on Friday.

When Nintendo first released the NES Classic Edition in November 2016, it did not make enough to meet demand and ultimately discontinued the mini console rather than making more.
