The NES Classic Edition will also come with 30 built-in games from the original retro game console, the list includes Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros., and Donkey Kong. "The overall level of demand is certainly greater than we anticipated, that's why we're suffering through the shortages out there in the marketplace".
The console was released November 11, recently completing its first month in the market. But going by the stats provided by industry tracker NPD (National Purchase Diary), Nintendo has officially sold over 196,000 pieces of money-making nostalgia bait to it's USA customers starting from its launch all the way till the end of November.
For those who can't get their hands on the retro game console through Amazon Prime Now, Thrillist reports that the the NES Classic Edition will be available in-store at Best Buy on December 20th.
Amazon may not have set a limit for orders, but there are just so many people hunting for the Classic Edition and the stock could run out fairly quickly.
According to a press release from the retailer, "limited quantities" of the unit are on sale at both physical stores, as well as its online shop.
Amazon Prime has started selling Nintendo Mini NES Classic Consoles from different cities such as D.C., Virginia Beach, Richmond, Baltimore, Raleigh, Nashville, ATL, Miami, Tampa, and Orlando.
