NES Classic 2018 is here! The release of the NES Classic Edition in 2016 was a huge success and was sold out almost instantly. Those babies flew off the shelves at retailers in the blink of an eye, even though the markup prices at some online stores were unheard of. Most retailers were out of stock on the release day. Were you lucky enough to get one?

NES Classic 2018It will be the same story with the NES Classic 2018. The relaunch of the miniaturized version of this astonishingly popular Nintendo Entertainment System is the Nintendo gamers’ dream.

And there’s no doubt that there’ll be a similar rush when the new batch of the NES Classic Edition hits store shelves tomorrow (June 29th).

If you’re a Nintendo fanatic and can’t wait to rediscover the joys of playing that classic version of Nintendo, then best get ready for the mad dash.

Here’s your chance to grab the NES Classic Edition


If you missed out on the first go ‘round of the miniature classic Nintendo console, according to Nintendo, the Classic NES it will be available until the end of the year.

Did someone say Christmas gift? Let’s not forget, this goodie was the darling of the 2016 Christmas gift giving.  And it’s still the perfect gift for anyone who collects and loves Nintendo. Buy it now for Christmas – ‘cos you sure won’t be able to find it later in the year.

So now you’re curious. What’s in the box?

  • The Classic NES system, of course
  • NES Classic controller. Hey, you can’t do anything without it – so you get that, too. And, it also works with NES Virtual Console games on Wii U.

With this new batch of NES Classic, you can get a wireless controller (8BitDo controller–sold separately here. But you’ll have to pre-order—available August). Why be annoyed with the inconvenience of the short cables on the retro?

  • HDMI cable – naturally
  • 30 pre-installed games! What!? Yep. Let me say it again. You get 30 pre-installed games on this Nintendo Classic console
    • 30 of the best Retro games—including
      • Super Mario, Kid Icarus, Donkey Kong, Pac Man, Excitebike, Ninja Garden, Castlevania, Super Mario Bros. 2, Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Punch-Out! and more (‘til you reach 30)
