NES Classic Returning On June 29

by Matthew Kato on May 14, 2018 at 09:06 AM

When the NES Classic came out during the holidays in 2016 it sold out immediately thanks to low supply on Nintendo's part and high demand from the public. Nintendo has since committed to bringing the 30-game all-in-one unit back, and it will go on sale again on June 29.

Despite the release date announcement and the expectation that the NES Classic will be available through 2018, the company did not say how many units it is releasing starting in June or if it will be made indefinitely.

On a related NES note, Nintendo recently announced that the paid Switch online service includes an NES games program, and that the Virtual Console is not coming to the system.
