Fortunately, Nintendo does learn from its lessons and, as promised, the NES Classic Edition will be returning to store shelves next month. The Tweet states that retailers will start carrying the product again starting on June 29. Nevertheless, the Japanese gaming giant declared via Twitter the NES Classic will go back to shops in the US on June 29.

When the console first hit the market back in November 2016, there was a great demand, leading to the sell-out of the entire stock nearly immediately.

However, with the retro console now selling for around £150 on Amazon UK via third party sellers, more stock is desperately needed for the country's retro gaming fans. Although NES Classic had an MSRP of $59.99, the overwhelming demand made prices soar on the secondary market. The mini-console became sparse in retail stores as soon as it launched.

Nintendo also stated the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic Edition, alongside the NES, are predicted to be available at the close of the year.

However, one hacker has decided that they can't wait for SNES games to appear on their Switch and has hacked the console in order to copy over the UI and library of the SNES Classic Edition.

Currently, no release date for the SNES Classic second launch has been announced.

When will the NES Classic be released?

A cool feature of the NES Mini controller is that it can be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii or Wii U console - you simply plug it into the bottom of the Wii Remote.
