SNES Classic pre-orders open later this month, Nintendo confirms

SNES Classic pre-orders go live later this month, says Nintendo Nintendo promises SNES Classic pre-orders soon, because chaos trumps order in 2017

It's easy to understand why: The SNES Classic Edition is a miniaturized version of the original console that works with modern TVs, yet it costs just $80 and comes with 21 games packed in.

Nintendo has long recreated and repackaged old products to appeal to its customers' nostalgia.

That's the gist of Nintendo's latest SNES Classic news, which takes the form of a Facebook post. (More on the NES Classic in our hands-on.) There was just one problem: It was nearly impossible to buy the darn thing. Walmart says the console was "mistakenly made available" prior to its official release date.

The Walmart fiasco from a week ago meant anybody who got a pre-order did so by an "accidental glitch", meaning their money was either refunded or not credited to their accounts. The reason for this is that Nintendo would now shift their focus to developing games for the Nintendo Switch and continuing its support for the 3DS.

Ryan Looks Past GOP Health Care Failure to Tax Reform
House Speaker Paul Ryan said even though the failure of the GOP health care bill makes tax reform hard , it's not a showstopper. They also reported they plan to start to work on a joint tax plan through committees by this fall, according to CNBC .

That should change later this month.

Of course, we know that like the NES Classic Edition, when Nintendo is finished with the Super NES Classic Edition, they're really finished.

"We appreciate the incredible anticipation that exists for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, and can confirm that it will be made available for pre-order by various retailers late this month".

That should help soothe fears that the SNES Classic will be impossible to find this holiday. But preorders will come soon, according to Nintendo, with the company announcing that many retailers' SNES Classic preorders will go live later this month.
