Where to Buy the Nintendo NES Classic Edition

No Caption Provided Nintendo’s NES Classic returns to stores after massive hype in limited run, and it’s going fast

It's that day of the year, NES Classic Edition fanatics when Nintendo's console that refuses to die comes back to stores.

Here's a guide to where you can buy the NES Classic Edition and where it is/isn't in stock at the time of this writing. GameStop, for instance, said earlier in the week that it will have at least 10 consoles per store available when doors open on the morning of the 29th.

Right now, the best deals for the NES Classic are over at Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop, which both the consoles available for $60 a pop. Walmart will have the NES Classic available beginning at 12:01 AM local time on June 29th in stores across the US. Redmond, Wash. -based Nintendo of America said in May that it expects that the console will be in stock until the end of the year, in an attempt to alleviate worries that the supply would not be able to meet the demand, as in the previous production run.

Target has also confirmed that it will be carrying the NES Classic tomorrow, but unfortunately, details were light. Either way, good luck and let us know if you snag one!

A garden variety of retailers will have the game in stores and also online, so you have a great chance of getting one.

Besides allowing you to play some of the most historically important video games of all time in one place, the Nintendo NES Classic is better than the original Nintendo in a couple of ways. By the time Nintendo announced the Super Nintendo Classic, the bad taste left in gamers' mouths was significant enough that the company made repeated efforts to reassure gamers that sufficient numbers of consoles would be available, then announced that the NES Classic was so popular, it would make a return in 2018.

Those are all of the retailers we've heard from thus far, but we can nearly certainly count on Amazon to stock the console as well.

It's likely Best Buy will re-stock its shelves and online store with consoles, so keep checking back if you haven't purchased one already. The Nintendo NES Classic is a small replica console that looks like the original Nintendo Entertainment System, which originally launched in 1985. You just need to be patient.
