NES Classic Edition Back in Stores on June 29

The limited NES Classic is making yet another comeback in just over a month.

It might have first released back in the 80s, but the Nintendo Entertainment System is making another comeback later this year, as Nintendo is putting the NES Classic Edition console back on sale in June 2018.

This isn't the first time that the NES has been resurrected for the modern audience, as Nintendo previously released the NES Classic Edition with 30 games back at the end of 2016. While there were issues with stock from the very start, the NES Classic Edition will be back in stores on June 29, 2018, hopefully with a larger amount of stock this time.

The NES Classic Edition cost $59.99 when it launched back in 2016, and it'll stay this way when it's re-released in June 2018. For those that missed out on the initial run, it'll come loaded with 30 classic games, including Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., Balloon Fight, The Legend of Zelda, and the original Metroid.

The NES Classic Edition might currently be out of stock from every retailer on the planet, but the SNES Classic Edition, the follow up retro console that Nintendo released in 2017, has always been in stock from when it was released, largely avoiding the stock issues that the NES Classic suffered from. Both retro consoles from Nintendo will be available until the end of 2018.
