Getting Hold of the SNES Classic Mini

Posted on October 28, 2017 at 5:07 pm

The SNES Classic Mini was released on the 29th September 2017. It comes pre-programmed with a number of classic games, including:

  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Star Fox
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario World
  • Yoshi’s Island

Since then, retailers have been running out of stock on a regular basis, making it incredibly difficult to get hold of the 90s-style consoles. It is being restocked by some but still seems to be flying off the shelves faster than anyone can restock. This means it could be a problem for shoppers to get hold of the console, especially before Christmas.

It is likely, however, that more retailers will be getting stock in the lead up to Christmas. The fact that Nintendo is continuing to restock with existing retailers is a good sign and shows that consoles are still being produced to meet demand. GAME is one of the biggest retailers and seems to be opening up SNES order regularly.
