Place Your Orders Now, The Nintendo NES Classic Mini is Back In Stock

Gamers who can't afford the Nintendo Switch have another option open to them - the NES Classic Mini.

One of the most highly anticipated game consoles today is the Nintendo Switch. The groundbreaking console is set to be released on March 3 and will reportedly retail at $300 in the US and £280 in the UK.

It's undoubtedly a bit steep for some. Luckily, there's another option at hand. And one that rivals the Switch in popularity - the NES Classic Mini.

There have been reports that the beloved retro console is back in stock at Amazon. However, it's a good idea for those who want to get a unit to place their orders now as stocks are reportedly flying off the shelves. This shouldn't come as a surprise though as the NES Classic Mini console sold out almost immediately when it was released last year.

As a matter of fact, there are very few Amazon sellers left who have stocks on hand. But most sellers are accepting reservations, with new stocks for the NES Classic Mini expected to arrive by March.

More importantly, the price of the console still remains near the $60 recommended retail price. Some third-party sellers are still listing it at more than that but it's not as bad as last year's pre-Christmas prices. At the time, the price for the NES Mini more than doubled but people were still willing to pay for it.

It's easy to see why the little console was such a hit, though. Aside from sporting the classic Nintendo Entertainment System design, the retro console came preloaded with 30 classic NES games like Castlevania, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Dr. Mario, Excitebike, GHOSTS'N GOBLINS, MEGA MAN 2, PAC-MAN, Super Mario Bros and The Legend of Zelda.

It's unclear how many Classic NES units Nintendo would be releasing this time around so it's best to start placing your orders before stocks run out again.
