Back in July, Nintendo surprised us by announcing the NES Classic Edition. This $60 plug and play console comes loaded with 30 classic NES games, including hits like Mario, Zelda, and Metroid. Managing to snag a preorder for one of these retro goodies has been difficult, and even if you did get your order in, you might not receive the console at launch.
Amazon UK has announced that they won’t be able to fulfill all preorders when the NES Classic Edition launches on November 11th. Customers will receive their orders on a first come first served basis, and emails will be sent out to indicate the estimated shipping date. Amazon UK expects to fulfill all preorders by mid-December. So far we haven’t heard about shortages for other regions, but we’ll be on the lookout for any updates to the situation.
