SNES Classic Edition pre-orders set for late August

Nintendo will apparently better prepared for the SNES Classic Edition launch than they were for the NES Classic Edition launch, but we’re still a bit leery about the whole pre-order thing to be honest.

According to Facebook post this morning, Nintendo will be opening up pre-orders for the Super NES Classic Edition later this month and the company seems to promise that there will be plenty of stock to go around on launch day and through the end of the year.

At this point, consumers are becoming conditioned to just buy first and ask questions later when it comes to Nintendo hardware, so we’ll see how that works out. We’re hoping for the best.

We appreciate the incredible anticipation that exists for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, and can confirm that it will be made available for pre-order by various retailers late this month.

A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year.
