It has been more than a month now since Nintendo announced and opened pre-orders for their follow from the smash hit NES Classic, the Super #Nintendo Entertainment System or better known as the SNES Classic. With its announcement back in June, it just took less than 24 hours for pre-order transactions to pile up and sell out.

This is actually not surprising, as the NES Classic also sold out quickly whenever Nintendo restocks and makes it available again through its retailers. It was a huge product for Nintendo selling more than 2.3 million consoles in just a span of 5 months. The same is expected with the SNES Classic and it looks #To Be a good start for the old-school gaming console.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System restock!

Just a few hours ago, Nintendo's official Facebook just announced an impending SNES restock update later this month to various retailers. This means pre-order slots will open once again as the console is yet to release by September 29 of this year.

Nintendo hasn’t made any clarification of any specific retail store the said restock would be made available though. We have written an article in regards on how to pre-order the SNES Classic in the US, UK, and Australia here.

Could Nintendo keep with the demand?

It also mentioned in the Facebook post that “A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year.” During its launch, Nintendo did recognize its shortcomings in dealing with the high demand for its legacy console during its run and are promising that they’d be manufacturing “significantly more” units with the SNES Classic.

Nintendo might be once again, biting off more than it can chew, as early indication stock shortage is very imminent for the consoles the first month of sales. Especially with Nintendo only shipping the SNES Classic until the end of 2017, it will surely keep the market rushing to buy the product, considering it would only be selling on the market for a limited amount of time. The reason for this is that Nintendo would now shift their focus to developing games for the Nintendo Switch and continuing its support for the 3DS.

Here are the classic games bundled with the SNES: “Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars,” “Contra III: The Alien Wars,” “Final Fantasy III,” “F-Zero,” “Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts,” “Kirby's Dream Course,” “Mega Man X,” “Secret of Mana,” “Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting,” “Kirby Super Star,” “Super Castlevania IV,” “Super Mario Kart,” “Super Punch-Out,” “Star Fox,” “Star Fox 2,” “Yoshi's Island,” and “Super Metroid.”
