1-Up: Nintendo Bringing Back NES Classic Edition Console in 2018

The logo of Japanese gaming giant Nintendo is displayed at a show room in Tokyo on July 20, 2016. The company will release new shipments for the retro console in the summer of 2018, with more information on specific dates for the return of the NES Classic Edition to follow.

An announcement by Nintendo revealed that they will be bringing the console back next year. After all, it one of the most sought items during the 2016 holiday shopping season - and also one of the most hard to find.

If there's one thing that Nintendo learned from the supply fiasco involving the revival of its classic consoles in the NES Classic and the SNES Classic, it's that there is a huge demand for them.

Nintendo said that the NES Classic was never meant to be a long-term product, and it wasn't too long before the SNES Classic was announced.

Nintendo attributed the decision to stop production to "limited resources".

The Super NES Classic Edition system features 21 legendary Super NES games such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Metroid. It will also include a new title, "Star Fox 2".

Formosa Petrochemical Corp, Taiwan's second-biggest oil supplier, said it had prepared to close its supply port if necessary. The railway bureau in Shanghai, north of Zhejiang, said it had stopped selling tickets for hundreds of trains.

When the company kicked off the pre-orders for the SNES gaming system last month, the stocks of retail companies, such as Target and Walmart, were sold out in less than a minute.

Nintendo's announcement in April of the NES Classic Edition discontinuation was a surprising one, considering that the retro console had massive trouble staying on store shelves due to intense demand. With the recent announcement of the SNES Classic Mini, and the nearly immediate selling out of pre-order stock, many people were expecting a similar situation.

The company isn't just banking on nostalgic consoles to drum up excitement and bring in sales.
