Best Buy’s staff writer Shane Zitzman has posted an update regarding the availability for the Super NES Classic, as well as some guidelines for getting yourself one in-store.

Take note, fans: The much-anticipated retro gaming Super Nintendo Entertainment System arrives at a Best Buy store near you on Friday, Sept. 29.

Limited quantities will be available in about 1,000 Best Buy stores across the country. And you may want to head to your local store ahead of time, because Super NES Classic Edition will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Similar to Black Friday, our stores will have a ticketing process for customers waiting in line.

Ticketing starts at 7 a.m. local time if a line has formed. We will only pass out as many tickets as we have systems available, with a limit of one per customer. Super NES Classic Edition will not be available on

The throwback system appears to be just as anticipated as last year’s retro Nintendo Entertainment System. This year’s mini system includes 21 pre-installed games, from Super Mario Kart to Street Fighter II. Bonus: It also includes the never-before-released Star Fox 2 game.

To play, just plug the console into any HD TV using the included HDMI cable. Not only does Super NES Classic Edition come with two controllers, but the system is also compatible with the NES Classic controller.

Tickets will be handed out starting at 7am local time, and you’ll have 3 hours after the store opens to claim your Super NES Classic. Are you picking one up? Let us know!
