NES Classic fans are about to be happy as fuck.
Originally released in the early ’80s, the Nintendo NES is finally making a return. The NES Classic Edition retroed in November 2016 and immediately sold out, so Nintendo knew it was time to cash out with the NES. Now, Nintendo has promised that the 8-bit console is making a return on September 29, “due to incredible demand.”
“Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves,” Nintendo said in a press release.
The NES Classic was just $60, and at just $80, the SNES Classic won’t break the bank either. And this time around, you won’t be forced to stand in a long line while you wait for a chance to cop, as it will ship regularly, rather than on a limited basis. Now Christmas copping will be even easier.
The only thing you should be worried about now is which game you’re going to play first—Super Mario World or The Legend of Zelda. (Our vote goes to Zelda.)
