I saw the Nintendo announced that NES Classic Edition will return to stores on June 29. When it is first launched in November 2016, I think it is a good idea to have one. I can tell my kids, how I like the home game when I am at their age. It is sold out so fast in 2016. It is reported that about 2.3 million NES Classic Editions were sold from November 2016 to April 2017 worldwide. Nintendo announced they were discontinuing the product. I thought I may not have one.


When I traveled to San Francisco, I learned this news. NES Classic will be back on June 29, 2018. At last, I bought one at Walmart Burnaby store.

Let me copy and paste some information from Wikipedia page.
