If you’re still looking to buy an NES Classic Edition you’ll want to head to Best Buy this week. Best Buy has announced it will have the NES Classic Edition available in “most” Best Buy stores today. Of course you will want to check with your local Best Buy store to make sure they have it in stock – but the NES Classic Edition should sell out.
Nintendo recently announced it will discontinue the NES Classic Edition. “NES Classic Edition wasn’t intended to be an ongoing, long-term product. However, due to high demand, we did add extra shipments to our original plans,” a Nintendo representative told IGN.
The NES Classic Edition included retro games like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Kirby’s Adventure. Nintendo originally said there would be a “steady flow” of additional systems during the holiday season, but customers had a tough time finding the console.
