As you might have heard, established toy retailer Toys “R” Us has recently filed for bankruptcy, but it seems that despite the company filing for bankruptcy, operations will continue as per normal. In fact according to a report from Polygon, the company has confirmed to the publication that they will actually be selling the SNES Classic on launch day itself.

The rep was quoted as saying, “Stores will open at normal time and have limited inventory of the console, so we encourage customers to get in line before doors open on Friday morning for the chance to scoop up this hot item.” This is in line with what Toys “R” Us had previously stated, in which they expect that operations will continue to proceed as per normal for the time being.

The SNES Classic was announced earlier this year and is the successor to the NES Classic that was discontinued last year. The console is expected to sell like hotcakes and Toys “R” Us had actually confirmed back in August that they would not be taking pre-orders, so for those who want to get their hands on the console via the retailer, it will be a first-come-first-serve basis.

However despite the SNES Classic expected to be a hot ticket item, Nintendo has stated that production of the console will continue through 2018 as opposed to just 2017. Nintendo also stated that the NES Classic will be making a comeback, so hopefully there will be enough supply to meet the demand of gamers.
