Nintendo Is Bringing Back The NES Classic In 2018

Nintendo Is Bringing Back The NES Classic In 2018

If you're one of the many people who are clamoured for Nintendo's highly coveted retro consoles, you'll have a better chance in the coming months.

The news coincides with Nintendo's announcement that it has dramatically increased SNES Classic Edition production to make sure that the supply of the company's second retro console will be enough to meet the expected demand. "Originally, shipments were announced to cease at the end of this calendar year".

Nintendo attributed the decision to stop production to "limited resources".

If there's one thing that Nintendo learned from the supply fiasco involving the revival of its classic consoles in the NES Classic and the SNES Classic, it's that there is a huge demand for them.

The NES Classic Edition ships with 30 games including Donkey Kong, Castlevania, Final Fantasy and Metroid.

Pre-orders for the SNES are already sold out online at Amazon, GameStop and Target. It will also include a new title, "Star Fox 2". That was heartbreaking if you never got one.

Nintendo also committed to providing "dramatically" more units of its upcoming release, the Super NES Classic Edition, when it launches on september 29 - with the company promising to ship out more Super NES Classics on Day 1 than were shipped of the NES Classic all previous year.

"Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves."

The company isn't just banking on nostalgic consoles to drum up excitement and bring in sales.

In its most recent quarter, the company sold 1.97 million Switch consoles.
