US Pre-Order Status

The US pre-orders finally started with Walmart on 22nd July. The allocation sold out quickly, so it's worth keeping an eye on other US based retailers as they are sure to open soon. We've added the pre-order pages for Amazon US, Best Buy and GameStop which will hopefully start taking orders soon. Toys R Us and Target will be added as soon as their pre-order pages appear.

UK Pre-Order Status

We've seen many UK retailers taking pre-orders for the SNES Mini, however they have tended to sell out within minutes of opening. We expect these to open up again once they have a better understanding of their stock allocation from Nintendo, so keep checking back.

Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom

Who can resist the charms of the Super Famicom Mini? With a slightly different set of games on the micro-console, this will be a great buy for collectors.
