How To Pre-order A SNES Classic
August 3 update: The previously available Walmart pre-orders were ultimately canceled . Nintendo has since revealed that SNES Classic pre-orders should arrive in the US by the end of August. We don't yet know when they will go up for sale exactly, but you can check out the store listings at some major retailers through the links below.
Amazon Best Buy Target
July 21 update: For the first time, the SNES Classic has come up for pre-order in the United States . It's unclear how long it will last for, but Walmart is offering the system here .
Update: Those in the UK may have missed at least their first chance to pre-order from certain retailers, but Nintendo's online store has the SNES Classic available as of this writing.
Original Story: Nintendo announced the SNES Classic today. A miniature version of the classic Nintendo console, the $80 system that comes with 21 games and two controllers launches in the US in September. Given that last year's NES Classic sold out basically instantly everywhere it was sold, fans might be wondering how they can secure the SNES Classic right away.
US retailers are not yet widely accepting pre-orders, but in Australia, you can secure a pre-order right now through JB Hi Fi and EB Games . The console sells for $120 in Australia and it looks a little different than the North American edition.
UK retailer Game announced today that pre-orders were available for the SNES Classic , but at press time it appears that the allocated units have been sold through.
In the US, Amazon has a page up for the SNES Classic, as does Best Buy , but you cannot actually pre-order the system there as of yet. We will update this post as more retailers open pre-orders for the SNES Classic. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
The Super NES Classic Edition features a total of 21 games , including some huge names-- EarthBound , Donkey Kong Country , The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past , and Super Mario World are among those included. But most notable of all is the inclusion of a game--Star Fox 2--that was famously never released. Here's the complete list:
Contra III: The Alien WarsDonkey Kong CountryEarthBoundFinal Fantasy IIIF-ZeroKirby Super StarKirby's Dream CourseThe Legend of Zelda: A Link to the PastMega Man XSecret of ManaStar FoxStar Fox 2Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper FightingSuper Castlevania IVSuper Ghouls 'n GhostsSuper Mario KartSuper Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven StarsSuper Mario WorldSuper MetroidSuper Punch-OutYoshi's Island
As with the NES Classic Edition, the SNES Classic features HDMI output and resembles the look of the system it's based on but in a smaller form factor. But unlike that system, it comes with two controllers in the box.
On the subject of supply, while Nintendo isn't sharing specific numbers, it did say it will deliver "significantly more" units than it did with the NES Classic Edition. That said, it only plans to ship the system between September and the end of 2017.
In Japan, Nintendo is selling the console as the Super Famicom Classic--and its game lineup is not the same as in the rest of the world .

SNES Classic Pre-orders Available This Month, Nintendo Says
Following a false start at Walmart, Nintendo has announced that SNES Classic Edition pre-orders will be available in the United States in August, ahead of the system's September 29 launch. The company has also again suggested it will offer an ample number of systems following the supply issues with last year's NES Classic Edition.
In a post on its Facebook page today, Nintendo said, "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." It did not offer a more specific date than that, nor did it say which stores would be offering pre-orders. Individual retailers may share their plans in the weeks ahead; we'll continue to monitor and track how to pre-order a SNES Classic Edition as more details are shared.
There have been concerns that, in light of how difficult the NES Classic Edition was to find , the SNES Classic Edition will face a similar situation. Nintendo again tried to alleviate these worries, stating, "A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year." Nintendo previously said its current plan is to only offer the system during 2017, adding that it will offer far more SNES Classic Edition units than it did with the NES model .
The SNES Classic Edition includes 21 of the Super Nintendo's best games , as well as one--Star Fox 2--that was never publicly released. Pre-orders have been offered in the UK already, but until now there had been no word on when those would launch in the US. Without warning, the system appeared recently on Walmart's website, only for those pre-orders to end up canceled .

Nintendo promises SNES Classic pre-orders soon, because chaos trumps order in 2017
Nintendo didn't offer pre-orders for its NES Classic in 2016, and that's not changing this year with the SNES Classic. But, the company promises, pre-orders are going to be a thing.
That's the gist of Nintendo's latest SNES Classic news, which takes the form of a Facebook post. The Walmart thing was a foul-up, but you can look forward to pre-order availability from most of the major retailers — Nintendo doesn't name which ones — toward the end of August.

SNES Classic pre-orders go live later this month, says Nintendo
Hold onto your seats: SNES Classic Mini pre-orders go live in the US at the tail-end of August, Nintendo announced today. 
"We ... can confirm that it will be made available for pre-order by various retailers late this month," the gaming giant posted on Facebook regarding the SNES Classic a short time ago.
Nintendo acknowledged "the incredible anticipation that exists" for the retro reboot, which sees the SNES shrunken into a adorably compact form and pre-loaded with 21 classic games. 
How to pre-order the SNES Mini Classic Edition
In addition to its arrival in retailer pre-order queues, Nintendo says "a significant amount of additional systems" will be boxed up and sent to stores for SNES Classic release day, which falls on September 29. 
What's more, Nintendo will continue to send SNES Classic Editions to retailers throughout the rest of 2017.

This is no doubt to keep up with what will be high demand. Nintendo has apparently learned its lesson from the NES Classic , the first console to get the miniaturizing treatment that was also nearly impossible to find before Nintendo ended production for good .
SNES Classic pre-orders got a false start when Walmart started taking orders before abruptly cancelling them last week. Walmart says the console was "mistakenly made available" prior to its official release date.
The SNES Classic Mini price is $79.99, and you'll find it up for order at Amazon , GameStop and Walmart (naturally), along with other reputable retailers. 
There may be more SNES Mini in stock, but we recommend acting fast if you want one; though we'll let you know when SNES Classic pre-orders go live, the console is likely to sell out before you can say "Super Mario World."

You can finally buy Nintendo's new $80 mini Super Nintendo later this month
Ever since Nintendo announced the SNES Classic Edition, fans have been frantically looking for a chance to reserve one. 
It's easy to understand why: The SNES Classic Edition is a miniaturized version of the original console that works with modern TVs, yet it costs just $80 and comes with 21 games packed in. Better yet: One of those games is the never-before-released "Star Fox 2." When the console launches in September, demand is expected to be very high. 
Nintendo
Thus, potential buyers have been anxiously anticipating the ability to preorder the system. It looks like they'll have the chance in late August, when Nintendo says various retailers will open up preorders. Nintendo said  on Tuesday via Facebook :
"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."
It's not yet clear which retailers that will be, but we expect the usual suspects: Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and GameStop.
Of note, Nintendo says the console will be shipped "throughout the balance of the calendar year." That means the SNES Classic Edition is already a limited-edition product — it'll end its production run at the end of the year, just like the NES Classic Edition before it.

The SNES Classic Edition otherwise launches on September 29 and will be available through the end of 2017 — if you can find one.
