When the Nintendo NES Classic Edition released November 11, gamers squealed, and bought up quantities at basically every brick-and-mortar retailer and online store, rendering the console sold out everywhere.
Since then, the nostalgic gaming unit has cropped up at a few places as part of specialty deals -- WalMart sold it during a week-long extravaganza last month, while Urban Outfitters teased the masses by selling the NES for just a single day. Now though, Nintendo-heads can rest easy, as the product is coming to Best Buy on December 20.
The news comes by way of an accident, actually, as video game site Desctructoid explains. Best Buy sent out an email to customers on Wednesday, noting that the chain would be selling the NES “tomorrow, December 20.” Being that it was only December 7, customers received another email acknowledging the error, and also confirmation of the console's triumphant return to Best Buy on December 20.
