NES Classic Back in Stores This June

The NES Classic will return to store shelves on June 29. The incredibly popular retro console was such a hit when it originally released that Nintendo couldn't keep up with demand. Thanks to the retro console's overwhelming popularity, the company decided to make more so everyone who wants one can get one.

Like previous releases, the NES Classic will be available to purchase wherever video games are sold. This includes retailers like GameStop, Best Buy and Target. Nintendo didn't reveal how many units will be available, so hopefully the company learned its lesson from the last time it released the NES Classic.

The retro console is a plug-and-play system, so all you have to do is unbox the NES Classic, plug it in and hook it up to your TV with an (included) HDMI cable. The NES Classic comes with one controller, but a second one can be purchased for two-player games. The included controller can also be plugged into a Wii U to play Virtual Console games.

The NES Classic features 30 games, with classics like Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Excitebike and more included. A full list of games available on the NES Classic can be found here. The NES Classic includes the ability to save games, so you don't have to beat them in one sitting. The console also provides the option to emulate CRT scan lines to give things the same look that you remember from your childhood.
