Nintendo's Super NES Classic is in stock at GameStop on Wednesday. Updates.

GameStop announced on Tuesday that the SNES Classic will be available online at today, October 11. The SNES Classic will also be available at GameStop owned ThinkGeek online shop. ThinkGeek will sell the SNES Classic stand-alone and in bundles starting in the afternoon Eastern.


4:12 pm ET: $124.99 SNES Classic Bundle in stock at GameStop

3:06 pm ET: $79.99 SNES Classic is on sale at GameStop.

When GameStop will start selling the SNES Classic is not known. The previous restocking of the SNES Classic started at 3:40pm ET. Like ThinkGeek, GameStop will sell the Super NES Classic as part of bundles and standalone. The only SNES Classic listing live on is the $79.99 Super NES Classic offer. GameStop has deleted the SNES Classic bundles the store offered at launch including the Super NES Classic Fighting Commander Bundle.

We expect that GameStop will release new SNES Classic bundle and not re-use the previous offers.

To get alerted when the SNES Classic goes on sale at GameStop you need an online inventory tracker. The Tracker app is a free online inventory tracker available for free on iOS and Android. You can find the app in the app store with searching for just for "i4u". Alternatively, you can receive all in-stock alerts also in real-time on Twitter by following @TheTrackerApp.

The Tracker alerted its users successfully last Thursday. Many users were able to grab a SNES Classic last week. The SNES Classic went up for sale at 3:40pm ET. Our analysis of the sale indicates though that the purchase of the SNES Classic was only successful in the first minutes of the sale.

The demand for the SNES Classic extremely high and the surge of transactions on requires being among the first to complete the checkout process.

Make sure you are prepared. Log into the GameStop store beforehand and make sure your credit card information is up to date. In case you do not have a credit card stored at GameStop yet, you can add it in account details under Payment Methods.

GameStop manages as the only shop to restock the SNES Classic since launch. This is already the second time GameStop is restocking the SNES Classic since launch. The video game retailer has somehow better relations with Nintendo than all other US retailers. GameStop had the first SNES Classic restocking event last Thursday.

GameStop had the Nintendo Switch in stock the most since launch and now it appears they are also preferred for the SNES Classic. Besides offering the SNES Classic online, GameStop and ThinkGeek retail stores get SNES Classic stock as well this week.

Update: SNES Classic stock starts to arrive at GameStop stores. As of 11am ET there over 235 stores listed to have the SNES Classic in stock. To find out if your local GameStop store has the SNES Classic in stock, you can check right now on iStockNow or call stores. iStockNow's US GameStop inventory tracker was not working for a while but is now back. Right now there are over 110 GameStop stores tagged to have the SNES Classic in stock. GameStop operates 4,400 stores in the United States.

There are only 31 ThinkGeek retail stores and there is no service to check for in-store inventory. The only option is to call your local ThinkGeek store, in case you have one.
