In contrast to what Nintendo fans found this week, Nintendo had promised that the SNES Classic would be easier to find than its predecessor was a year ago.

Nintendo's official page for its upcoming Super NES Classic Edition retro console now lists a half-dozen stores where customers can pre-order the console.

The SNES Classic Edition is a miniature, modernised version of the classic console that will come with 20 all-time classic games built in.

And btw, how many on this site (in North America) got pissed off because of missing out on preordering the SNES Classic tonight on Best Buy.com?

Notably, there are still several retailers planning to offer pre-orders of the SNES Classic Edition that have yet to go live: Toys "R" Us, Target, Walmart, and GameStop.

SNES Classic Edition pre-orders didn't last almost that long, which does not bode well. The retail giant later canceled the pre-orders and refunded the purchases back to customers. The overview trailer runs down all the games that are included, which are slightly different between regions, but also showcases other new features the system is able to do.

Back in November, pre-sales for the NES Classic managed to crash Amazon.

The Super NES Classic Mini is packing some powerful modern conveniences under its hood. Yes, this is the infamous Star Fox 2 for the SNES which is being released for the first time in the company history and this is all exclusively for the SNES Classic.

As usual, you'd probably want to head on over and buy it now before it sells out, which usually only takes a few minutes.

Again, the demand is high and supply is low, so make sure you pre-order your Super NES Classic Edition on Amazon right now!
