Nintendo SNES Classic Pre-Orders

At the moment, Nintendo and major retailers haven't confirmed or announced any plans for pre-orders for the upcoming SNES Classic. For the NES Classic launch last year, national chains like Gamestop, Target and Best Buy didn't do traditional pre-orders for the compact mini-console. Instead, they frequently limited their sales to a first-come, first-served basis to in-store shoppers depending on inventory. On several occasions, retailers also provided news and updates about when shipments of the NES Classic would come in via social media. 

For its second go-around on the vintage console market, though, Nintendo looks to not repeat the NES Classic's biggest mistakes. In a statement via Kotaku, Nintendo said that it would produce "significantly more" units compared to the NES Classic and confirmed that the SNES Classic would be a limited run item that would only ship through the end of 2017.
