SNES Classic pre-orders will start this month

Nintendo announced via social media this weekend that retailers in the U.S. will eventually put up their SNES Classic Edition pre-orders this month. They did not have a time frame, only stating that it will happen during August and not necessarily at the same time for all retailers.

This differs from the NES Classic last year, where Nintendo didn’t even have pre-orders at retailers. I’m still not optimistic about my chances of securing one of these rare systems but I’m at least more hopeful now.

Or maybe that’s what they want me to think!
