Nintendo Announces They’re Going to Make More NES Classic Editions in 2018
You can stop paying over-inflated prices on eBay for the NES Classic Edition. Nintendo has decided to make more.
In November of 2016, Nintendo released that NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the Nintendo Entertainment System from the 1980s that included 30 games. Super Mario Bros. 1 through 3, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda 1 and 2, Donkey Kong and Pac-Man were among the list of classic games. When it was announced a few months prior to going on sale, everyone seemed to want one for Christmas.
Unfortunately for most, Nintendo didn't make very many of the NES Classics and with short supply and high demand, people that got a hold of them were selling them for upwards of $300 on eBay when it only cost $59.99 at retail.
I was one lucky enough to score one and have had three unsolicited offers from people to buy mine for over $100. I turned them all down. Now though it may not be an issue any longer with this announcement on their website.
Next summer, Nintendo will also bring back the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system with new shipments. More information about the timing of the return of NES Classic Edition will be announced in the future.
And if that weren't enough, on September 29, the SNES classic is going to be released with 21 games from the Super Nintendo including the never released Star Fox 2. Nintendo plans to make plenty available.
