Nintendo Is Bringing Back Its $60 Retro Gaming Console

The NES Classic flew off the shelves in 2016.

If you missed the chance to buy an NES Classic on its first go-around, you’re going to get another go at it. Nintendo just announced that it’ll be re-releasing the $60 retro gaming console, in stores throughout the U.S., starting on June 29. The NES Classic was originally released in 2016, but it was nearly impossible to get your hands on — they flew off the shelves. (Plus, Nintendo is notorious for not manufacturing enough consoles to meet demand.) Since then, you may have been able to snag one on either Amazon and eBay, but at a much-hiked-up price.

Nintendo has since released a second retro gaming console, the SNES Classic, but if you grew up on an NES console, the NES Classic is really the one that you want. As a reminder, the consoles comes with 30 classic games built into it — see the full list of games below — and one wired NES Classic Controller. A second wired controller will cost you roughly $10, while a wireless controller can be bought online for around $20.
