If you had trouble with finding an unpacked copy of this console, you’ll have another shot, but it’s your last chance.
Let us quote the official statement from Nintendo:
Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product.
While there’s “incredible level of consumer interest,” it’s also apparent that the fan-favourite retro hardware isn’t the main focus of Nintendo. Instead, as we may guess, the company is focused on expanding its reach with the Nintendo Switch console.
If you, somehow, manage to grab your copy, it could be a good idea to keep it foiled for the next couple of months. You know, those collectors…
