June 26: Amazon UK offered to pre-order the SNES Mini for £79.99. Amazon UK has sold out of the Super Nintendo Classic within hours of the announcement. This confirms that the SNES Classic will as popular as the NES Classic.

The 16-bit retro console is $20 more expensive than the NES Classic, but comes with a second controller. The number of pre-installed games is lower with 21. The popularity of the SNES Classic will be off the charts, like it was with the NES Classic.

Nintendo will not have enough SNES Classic consoles available to satisfy demand when it goes on sale on September 29. There are no retailer details yet available. Nintendo has not revealed any details yet about the SNES Classic pre-order. The NES Classic was available for pre-order for a very limited time at select retailers. Target and ToysRUs offered the NES Classic for pre-order before release for a very short time. Retailers like Amazon, GameStop and Walmart started to fully sell the NES Classic on November 10 of last year.

Nintendo might again release the SNES Classic without a significant pre-order period. We will have to wait and see what happens. Amazon UK had the SNES Classic for pre-order on announcement day. Inventory only lasted about 3 hours. It lasted that long as consumers did not know yet about the SNES Classic and the availability at Amazon UK. Every further pre-order opportunity will not last that long.
