Well today we have good news.

Nintendo has announced it will relaunch production of the popular NES Classic Edition console released a year ago. However, the company said it will now continue into 2018.

In addition to this the Japanese firm has said that it will ship additional NES Classic Edition consoles in 2018.

While many folks are eagerly awaiting the Xbox One X, it appears as if many more are eager to get their hands on a Super NES Classic Edition from Nintendo.

In addition, more units of Super NES Classic Edition will ship on its September 29 launch day in the USA than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all past year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly.

Production of the console, which also sold out soon after pre-orders went live, was originally scheduled to stop by the end of the year.

NES Classic Edition features 30 classic NES games such as the original Super Mario Bros. With the recent announcement of the SNES Classic Mini, and the nearly immediate selling out of pre-order stock, many people were expecting a similar situation. This gives them another chance to buy the NES Classic Edition at its retail price of $59.99, and not for the hundreds of dollars that resellers are demanding for the device. The pending return of the NES Classic Edition shows that Nintendo might actually be starting to listen to its customers, and could mean even better plans for the company down the line.
