NES Classic back in stock for a limited time

NES Classic back in stock for a limited time

It also comes with a single controller, though two can be used.

Instead of playing games off of cartridges, the Nintendo NES Classic comes with 30 preinstalled titles, including many hits like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid.

The NES Classic Edition is again in store shelves and in online shops.

Nintendo re-released the NES Classic Edition due to its popularity among fans. To celebrate the release, I4U News is hosting a NES Classic Giveaway. If you're one of those retro seekers still aiming for that chance to bag the revamped NES Mini Classic console, then this is your chance. For whatever reason, Nintendo still hasn't managed to meet the demand for these, although the company has stated that they will continue to produce and release them to the North American market as inventory becomes available.

The NES Classic is available at Walmart for $59.99 - that's cheaper than Amazon, who now only has it available from third-party sellers. NES Classic Edition returned June 29 and is expected to be available for the rest of the year, the company tweeted.

On its official blog, Best Buy confirmed that it will have a new stock of NES Classic systems both in-store and on its website. However, by mid-morning on Friday, the console was already sold out online.

However, do not be surprised if retailers limit this to one item per-person in order to combat scalpers. The NES Classic Edition will arrive by July 3 if purchased Friday, according to GameStop, and customers can check availability by calling their local store ahead of time.

While pre-orders of the newly updated controller are available right now, it's not entirely clear when it will begin to ship. (Note: Original NES and SNES controllers are not compatible with either platform).

But the good news is you might have some luck heading to a brick-and-mortar store.
