KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The NES Classic Edition was a hit past year not only because it included a raft of popular games from the 80s and 90s, but also because it was a capable game emulation machine.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told Financial Times that Nintendo has "dramatically increased" the production for the upcoming SNES Classic Edition.

For what it's worth, Nintendo is promising that the SNES Classic will be more readily available than the NES Classic, even if pre-orders have played out exactly as they did before. Nintendo claimed that the console was gone quickly because of a bot that placed online orders faster than humans could.

The launch of Nintendo's NES Classic Edition previous year was marred by the company's near-total disconnection from reality, as supply issues drove resale prices of the mini-console to several hundred dollars. Thus, they underestimated their own NES Classic.

"I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on a SNES Classic on any of the auction sites". "You shouldn't [have to] pay more than $79.99".

Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime urged potential buyers to avoid resellers that have exorbitant prices. But Fils-Aimé says that those issues were "outside our control", implicitly moving the blame to the retailers.

The pre-order process for Nintendo's SNES Classic Edition was, in a word, a nightmare.

Sadly it appears Switch-seeking Nintendo fans are likely to experience disappointment this time around.

The unexpectedly high demand and "multiple choke points" in the supply chain have led to a dismayed fanbase, most notably in Japan.

"We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition".
