Back in 2016 Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition, a woefully under-produced replica of the iconic 8-bit video game system. Packed with thirty of the console’s most popular games, the NES Classic Edition sold out almost right away forcing fans to either deal with scalpers or to simply give up hope of owning one.
There is some good news on the horizon – Nintendo is going to reintroduce the NES Classic Edition to stores on June 29th with the same MSRP of $59.99. That gets you the mini console, one controller, an HDMI cable and an AC adapter. If you want to enjoy a two-player game then you’ll need to buy a second controller (hopefully Nintendo puts some more of those on store shelves as well.) The thirty games will be pre-loaded onto the console and just like last time there is no official way to add more games to the device.
We can only hope that Nintendo has produced enough of the NES Classic Edition consoles to meet demand this time.
