News: The SNES Classic was originally only going to be shipped in 2017 but Nintendo revealed both the SNES Classic and NES Classic will be available in 2018


Good news for those who haven’t been able to secure a pre-order for the SNES Classic and for those who still want to pick up an NES Classic. According to Nintendo you will will have an opportunity to pick up both of them, although you won’t be able to pick up the NES Classic until next year. Sticking with the SNES Classic for a moment, Nintendo has revealed that they are going to ship the SNES Classic into 2018. Their original plan was for shipments to cease at the end of 2017.

In addition, more units of SNES Classic will ship on its Sept. 29 launch day in the U.S. than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all last year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly. Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves.

If you weren’t able to secure an NES Classic last year then Nintendo also has some great news about that. Beginning next summer, Nintendo will be bringing back the NES Classic system with new shipments. More information about the timing of the return of the NES Classic Edition will be revealed at another time.

It is awesome that Nintendo is bringing back the NES Classic but I am sure some are disappointed about how long they will have to wait to pick one up. A big reason for that is scheduling. They have to schedule factory runs to produce more of the NES Classic and they have to do it far in advance. They have to put in their orders and then wait their turn. Once their order is complete then the factory moves on to the next order, whatever it may be. That is also the reason why Nintendo couldn’t snap their fingers and make more on the spot earlier this year. This is one of the reasons why Microsoft already has some Xbox One X units sitting in a warehouse two months before the console’s release and this is also how Apple can release a new iPhone only two weeks after revealing the phone’s existence.

In any event, it is great to hear that Nintendo looks like they learned their lesson with the problems the NES Classic had, in terms of it being hard to find. Hopefully the SNES Classic really is much more plentiful and then next summer you will be able to walk into a store and buy an NES Classic as well.
