Nintendo didn’t offer pre-orders for its NES Classic in 2016, and that’s not changing this year with the SNES Classic. But, the company promises, pre-orders are going to be a thing.
That’s the gist of Nintendo’s latest SNES Classic news, which takes the form of a Facebook post. The Walmart thing was a foul-up, but you can look forward to pre-order availability from most of the major retailers — Nintendo doesn’t name which ones — toward the end of August.
Here, stare at Nintendo’s words and feel the anticipation…
So… uh… there you go. The thing we already knew was coming is, in fact, still coming. Even better: at an undetermined moment later this month, some lucky few will enjoy the privilege of being able to spend money in advance on the thing.
Cool deal. GLHF.
