"Urban Outfitters is pleased to announce that we will be carrying a limited inventory of Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition console," a company spokesperson said in a statement. "The highly sought-after game system will be available online at urbanoutfitters.com on December 6th. The product will not be available in store."
Unfortunately, the company didn't say what time it will start selling the devices, so if you're hoping to finally get your Donkey Kong-playing hands on one, well, you might want to just start refreshing the website at midnight just to be safe. We reached out to the spokesperson for the exact timing, and hopefully they'll reveal those details soon. Timing aside, if Urban's stock of the must-have gift is as limited as Walmart's appeared to be during recent daily flash sales, prepare to be disappointed when they all disappear in seconds.
The tiny console comes pre-programmed with 30 classic Nintendo games, including Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., and PAC-MAN. With all of that for just 60 bucks, it's no surprise stores can't keep 'em in stock ahead of the holidays. Thankfully, you won't have to actually set foot in a crowded mall or wait in line to try and buy one this time. Good luck.
