NES Classic Edition returning to stores in June

Nintendo recently announced that the NES Classic will be returning soon, as a restock of the favorite device is set to drop later this Summer.

NintendoBecause it's super small, and fits in a palm. It features numerous most popular games from the 8-bit system's history, including "Donkey Kong", "Super Mario Bros." and "The Legend of Zelda". The NES Classic was discontinued by Nintendo in April 2017. The SNES Classic, which launched in September 2017 at $79.99, includes 21 built-in games. Players won't have to leave their game and TV on just to preserve their progress like they did 30 years ago.

The limited edition console went on sale in 2016 and was one of the hottest items during the holiday season, with shoppers waiting outside stores for hours in hopes of buying one. Additional shipments in subsequent months also quickly sold out and eager fans were forced to pay big bucks for a console on online auction sites.
