Remember last year when Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition retro console and the only way to actually get your hands on one was to pay a premium and order it on Amazon? Well, history is already repeating itself. Nintendo released the hotly anticipated Super NES Classic last Friday, and the console instantly sold out everywhere. Well, almost everywhere. You won’t be able to find it at MSRP, but the console is in stock and shipping on Amazon if you’re willing to pay a premium. If you want a Super NES Classic anytime soon, this link may very well be your only hope. As always, don’t purchase from any sellers with stores labeled “just launched.”

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • The Super NES Classic Edition system has the original look and feel of the ’90s home console, only smaller. Plus, this one comes fully loaded with 21 games!
  • Get your hands on some of the best 2-player games of the era, including Super Mario Kart and Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting.
  • The Super NES Classic Edition is compatible with the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories. Just plug it in and play
  • From your first ride on Yoshi to the final heart-pounding escape from Planet Zebes, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is pure 16-bit retro gaming perfection.

If you’d prefer to go with the original NES Classic Edition, it’s in stock on Amazon as well with free Prime shipping.
