In case you forgot, getting a NES Classic Mini after launch day last year was almost impossible. There were very few around on launch day and they would sell out almost instantly when they came back into stock in the lead up to Christmas.
Well, it’s time to do it all again. The SNES Classic Mini (AKA The Super Nintendo Mini) is out tomorrow. Whilst stock is expected to be larger for the SNES Classic Mini, it’s still going to be damn hard to find them with most retailers already selling through their pre-sale allocation months ago.
We’ve rounded up all the retailers that will be stocking the system tomorrow to help you try and get your hands on a console.
WHAT IS THE SNES CLASSIC MINI?
The SNES Classic Mini releases on Saturday, September 30th for $119.95. This time, the console comes with two wired controllers (exactly the same size as the original), so you won’t have to go looking for that second controller (which was even harder to find than the console). It includes 21 of the best Super Nintendo games including: Donkey Kong Country, Kirby Super Star, Zelda: A Link To The Past, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart and a bunch of other classic Nintendo games.
Target is going to be your best bet tomorrow. They’re only going to have it in 19 stores around Australia, but we’ve been assured that stock will be quite large (and much bigger than NES stock). The reason why they’ve limited it to 19 stores is so that they can keep stock for a longer period of time. You can find the list of stores that will have it HERE. There will be no online orders at this stage.
Both EB Games and JB Hi-Fi have sold out of their pre-order allocation months ago, but they will have limited stock in stores tomorrow. This is depending on how many pre-orders they’ve taken in store and how many they get in their final allocation, but we know for a fact that both retailers will have leftover stock (but probably not as much as Target or Big W).
