The extremely hard to get NES Classic Editions is being restocked today. If you’ve been wanting to get one but haven’t been able to so far, now you’ve got another chance to make it happen. Here’s the official announcement Tweet from Nintendo.

Back in 2016 when they first released the NES Classic, it quickly became one of the most sought after holiday gifts of the year. It was practically impossible to get as it sold out almost instantly at every retailer as soon as a restock was announced. It’s been this way every single time so far and today will probably not be an exception.
So far, several different retailers have announced that they will be carrying new stock, but the one that is your best bet if you’re living in Asia is Amazon. I would’ve thought that Gamestop would also be able to ship internationally as they did with another limited edition Nintendo item, but strangely they’re only shipping the NES Classic to US addresses.
Here’s the NES Classic Amazon listing for those interested. At the time of writing, there’s only 4 left in stock! Better hurry if you want one!
In case you forgot what games are included, here’s a list of the 30 titles bundled with the device:
- Balloon Fight
