Nintendo is finally bringing back the NES Classic as it promised and we now have a date to expect it.

"#NESClassic Edition will return to stores on June 29! This system and the #SNESClassic Edition system are expected to be available through the end of the year."

Good news to everyone that wasn't able to get a NES Classic or is having a hard time securing a SNES Classic! That said, I imagine you could take the "available through the end of the year" to mean Nintendo might discontinue them? I gotta think that they don't mean that but... well if you want one, now's a good time to get one. I know the NES & SNES Classics mostly sit unused for most but I play them a lot and we've been dedicating one Cheerful Ghost Radio segment per month to cover games on the NES Classic.

Now i'm just wondering when Nintendo is gonna drop the word on the N64 Classic?

Cool! Maybe I'll be able to get my hands on them. I didn't really try before, I didn't have much confidence I'd be able to find them. They're on Amazon, still, but expensive.

This is interesting, looks like Japan is getting a famicom mini with different games:

Yeah, that does seem really cool. I wouldn't mind if Nintendo wanted to do the NES Classic 2.0 with a select set of curated games, i'd just appreciate enough stock to buy one.
