Good news is on its way for retro gaming fans. Nintendo confirmed that it would be bringing back the discontinued NES Classic retro Gaming console to the market. Retracing its stand, the company assured fans that it would be manufacturing and releasing the 8-bit mini retro gaming console to the market in summer 2018. Given the massive demand this elusive gaming console experienced when it was released, it is great to see Nintendo bring it in once again so that loyalists can lay their hands on one the second time around.

NES Classic coming back to the market

The retro gaming console was initially released to the market in November 2016 and was available for purchase till April 2017.

However, Nintendo then decided to pull out the console from the market and announced its decision to discontinue the product despite high demand from patrons. The console was so hard to get that people could not even get their hands on it via the odd restock at ThinkGeek. Ardent gamers can play 21 classic Super Nintendo Entertainment System gaming titles on the NES Classic retro edition.

Nintendo in its press statement announced that apart from bringing back the NES Classic Edition gaming console in 2018, the company will continue to ship additional units of the SNES Classic Edition into the market. The Japan-based company revealed that it would release more SNES Classic Editions to the market than what was released for the NES Classic Edition. It also assured that shipments would be available in stores at regular intervals to avoid product crisis in the market.

Earlier, Nintendo had announced that the SNES Classic Edition would be discontinued once the holiday season comes to an end. It now seems that the company is reversing most of its decisions about its retro gaming console line-up. One can only hope that Nintendo does maintain a steady flow of product in the markets as pre-orders for the SNES Classic sold out pretty fast.

NES Classic Edition price to remain same?

The NES Classic Edition has a host of classics that gamers can engage in such as “Double Dragon II: The Revenge, “Balloon Fight,” “Pac-Man,” “Super Mario Bros. 3, and more. The original model was priced at $59 but sold for more because of high demand. Nintendo has not revealed whether it intends to keep the retail price same or change it when the device is released in 2018. It remains to be seen if the company will be able to keep up with the consumer demand in its next innings.
