The NES and SNES Mini are coming back, pre-orders now open

These are the 30 games you can play on Nintendo's $60 mini NES console that's coming back this June

The NES Classic Edition is a miniature video game console that contains 30 retro video games from the original Nintendo Entertainment System, which launched in North America in 1985. Expect them back in stock on June 29.

The NES Classic Edition, Nintendo's official all-in-one microconsole, alternatively known as the NES Mini or Classic Mini NES, is making a return on June 29.

The Nintendo retro console, along with the SNES Classic Edition, will be available until the end of 2018.

Probe into Chechen-born Paris attacker widens
He said that while the 21-year-old man was born in Chechnya, he had spent nearly his entire life in France. The friend, arrested in the eastern French city of Strasbourg, was born in 1997, a source said.

You can pre-order the NES Mini and SNES Mini now from a variety of retailers, though most are putting a one-per-customer restriction in place. Pre-orders sold out in advance of the launch and those hoping to buy one in-store were met with long lines and empty shelves.

The company will retain the original pricing for both consoles. Nintendo recently announced the mini version of its classic console is coming back to stores, after past year they announced it was dead, then magically coming back in 2018. Pre-order one if you're feeling anxious, but we figure they should actually be in decent supply this time.

"Just plug the NES Classic Edition into your TV, pick up that gray controller, and rediscover the joy of NES games."
Stay tuned for more gaming news coming as well. What's interesting here is that, now that Nintendo has announced the Virtual Console will not be coming to the Switch, subscribers to their online service will gain access to a bunch of games that are also on this hardware including Balloon Fight, Dr. Mario and Donkey Kong.

Either way, yay, we're getting more NES Classic Editions!
