Good news! And it's got nothing to do with the Dacia Sandero, but it does have to do with something getting back in stock. If you were upset that you weren't able to land an NES Classic before they discontinued it, take heart, because the NES Classic is making a triumphant return to retailers next year! Huzzah!

But that's not all. Nintendo of America also announced earlier today that while they had originally planned a similar kind of limited run for the upcoming SNES Classic, they're now going to extend shipments into 2018 as well. I'd still suggest you pre-order the SNES Classic ahead of its September 29th launch date if you want to get one.

While they weren't able to offer firm dates just yet, Nintendo did indicate that the NES Classic would be coming back some time next summer. Presumably, they'll be keeping everything else the same, like the price and the included games, but we can't know for sure until it shows up.

For the SNES Classic, the plan was to ship through to the end of this holiday season, but now they're going to continue "regular" shipments into 2018. We're not sure if that means through all of next year, but at least it means you can probably hold out on paying the outrageous scalper prices on eBay and Craigslist.


The above information comes by way of Nintendo of America. Similar announcements were made by Nintendo of Europe and others to indicate a similar kind of release schedule (and continued production) of the NES Classic and SNES Classic. The SNES Classic officially launches on September 29 with an MSRP of $79.99.
