The preorders for the next batch of NES classics have opened up for preorder via Amazon.es. The EU version comes with everything the US version comes with except a power adapter. Details in the link below https://www.amazon.e...pf_rd_i=desktop

Several months ago I traded an unopened NES Classic for the EU SNES via cheepassgamer. Did you try the trades forum?

Only reason it sold out was that scalpers thought they were going to be able to cash in like the NES Mini the year before....

 

Come on man... common sense, or just put your money where your mouth is....

I had second thoughts and canceled my preorder. I'd rather have the US box in case somewhere down the line I decide to sell it. Plus, I'd like to have the power adapter since I don't have an extra phone charger. I just hope I don't have to get up early and stand in line.

Any idea if they'll have just the controllers for sale? Looking for one for my SNES mini.

The thread that had the German (I think) pre-orders had the controller listed.  I would like one for my snes also.

Common sense dictates that scalpers are going to try to do the same as well with this one. Once they realize they cant, It will once again be glorious.

the margin was a lot thinner than the NES, but people moving bulk systems were probably still making a justifiable profit

Are the Japanese versions being made again also? I'd like to get Famicom and Super Famicom eventually.

FYI these started shipping out from Amazon ES, if for some reason you wanted to ditch your order to just get the US release (Amazon.ES is still in stock atm), you may wanna hurry up and do that

These aren't pre-orders anymore, they are in stock right now.  I got an email on the extra controller I ordered from Amazon.de the other day saying it was shipping early.

Same for me.  I preordered to get a second controller because I was concerned I wouldn't be able to get one (I already have the console, but really wanted a matching controller) - I expect the consoles to be easier to get, but the controllers were a question mark.  I intended to cancel it if pre-orders opened up here.

 

I saw the charge come through and was surprised and at first didn't realize what it was for.  Well, at least I won't have to hunt now.

ended up getting my NES classic today even sooner than expected

 

also, the ES and DE store both appear to be sold out from Amazon at this point, they were in stock for ages though

Lowest stock near me is 18 units, Highest is 60. walmart.com is only showing 2 of the 5 stores that have stock though.

Is this just a reprint of the original classic or is there anything new to it?
