If you grew up in the '80s or even the '90s, you probably played a fair amount of Nintendo games as a kid. About a year or so ago, Nintendo released their NES Classic, which was a smaller version of their first iconic console, preloaded with everyone's favorite classic games like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, etc. Naturally, that sold like hotcakes, so everyone awaited Nintendo's next move.
A couple months ago, Nintendo announced the SNES Classic.
A smaller version of Nintendo’s next iconic, and arguably best, console.
This one comes preloaded with many classic Super Nintendo hits like the Kirby series, Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and much more.
Naturally, the Internet melted down and wondered where they could get one.
The release date was set for September 29th, 2017, but that wasn’t enough for people after having to fight to get an NES Classic last year.
So, Nintendo put a few pre-orders up when they announced it.
...and those pre-orders sold out in less than 30 minutes.
It’s been pretty quiet on the SNES Classic since then, so people were starting to wonder if they might have to rush GameStop at 7:59 AM the morning of release.
But like the sneaky devils they are, Nintendo released some more pre-orders in the middle of last night.
When not many people were awake, let alone paying attention to their Amazon accounts.
Apparently, the pre-orders still did not last very long.
And people are a little bit upset.
