Nintendo SNES Classic sells out; Wii Shop ending in January 2019

As Nintendo Preps SNES Relaunch, A Look Back At The System's Top 10 Bestsellers

As Nintendo Preps SNES Relaunch, A Look Back At The System's Top 10 Bestsellers

Nintendo promised that it would have more units available for purchase than it did with the NES Classic, and many retailers insisted that they would have the SNES Classic available on launch day, though in limited supply. But more are on the way. Do you own a SNES Classic?

Yesterday evening John Lewis also opened SNES Classic Mini pre-orders, with stock avaiable for around 23 minutes. But customers shouldn't worry. I can just see the Nintendo top brass sitting around a conference table (shaped like a 1up mushroom) asking each other "how many different ways can we sell these games we made over two decades ago?"

Glixel has asked how numerous SNES Classics were sold by the chain and will update this story when they respond.

The original Super Nintendo was released in 1991 and eventually sold 49.1 million units world-wide. It comes with 21 games pre-installed including, for the first time, the previously un-released Star Fox 2.

North Korea denies torturing Otto Warmbier, criticizes Trump
The comments came after an OH county coroner had determined Mr Warmbier had died from a lack of oxygen to the brain. The report - an external examination, not an autopsy - describes a 4.3-by-1.6-inch scar on Warmbier's right foot.

It's possible that we will get a Virtual Console announcement at the same time Nintendo decides to share more information about the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service. Sony could even be ahead of the curve since the PlayStation controller has remained largely the same in style since the advent of the Dual Analog Controller, so they could advertise that any wireless analog PlayStation controller will work with the system. It will also be sold online - at places like Amazon and ThinkGeek. Both are miniature versions of the classic video game consoles that come with a built-in library of classic titles.

The UK price of the SNES Classic Mini is £69.99, as listed on Nintendo's own store. A teardown of the SNES Classic has revealed that the console reuses the same technology and processing components are found in the NES Classic. It's not that insane of an idea though, because once the stores sell out, they will not be restocked.

Playing With Super Power is one part history book, one part PRIMA guide.

This is all following Nintendo's claims it won't have the same problem as it did with the NES Classic before discontinuing it.
