Nintendo released the NES Classic about a week ago. The company expected demand to be high prior to the release and it was right because it has been very hard to buy one because retailers are out of stock. Nintendo announced a couple of days ago that it’s going to provide additional inventory of the NES Classic over the coming weeks leading up to the holidays. Walmart, one of the company’s retail partners, has now said that it’s going to have additional inventory of this mini-console every day this week.
The NES Classic is simply a smaller version of the original NES console. It’s pre-loaded with a select number of games, this product is meant for those who want to rekindle the memory of the original console.
The NES Classic costs $60 and it includes 60 games, titles such as The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, and Super Mario Bros. come pre-installed. The mini-console has sold very well since it was released last week, so much so that retailers sold out of the inventory that they had received from Nintendo.
Walmart has confirmed through Facebook that it’s going to sell NES Classic until Friday. It’s going to start selling the additional inventory at 5 pm ET every day until Friday. Walmart says that customers will be able to pick one up for $59.6 “while supplies last.”
