Nintendo To Put Super NES Classic Edition Up For Pre-Order In August

Depending on where you're searching for a pre-order for the Super NES Classic Edition, you're either already content with your purchase and are just waiting out the calendar, or you're terrified as hell while the days just keep ticking away to the end of September. To relieve some of that burden, Nintendo themselves will be opening up their website to take pre-orders for the retro system, but you're going to have to wait a few weeks.

Nintendo To Put Super NES Classic Edition Up For Pre-Order In August

No specific date or time was given by the company, but Nintendo did announce today that pre-orders for the Super NES Classic Edtion will be going online near the end of August and that supplies would be limited. We're guessing that by leaving out the finer details, Nintendo can stop people who may try to either spam the site with requests or possibly DDoS the site so people can't get them period.

Whether or not this will actually help is anyone's guess as Nintendo have made no announcements about the quantity of the system, which is already being predicted by several websites as low since the company will still be pushing out Nintendo Switch consoles at the same time and preparing for more during the holidays. If you haven't already ordered one, we wish you luck.
