It’s important to note that the system is constantly difficult to find, selling out within minutes whenever it’s restocked. Therefore, those interested in buying one are advised to login/create a Best Buy account in advance and ensure payment and shipping information is up to date. This will save precious time during the checkout process.

The SNES Classic is a smaller version of the home console that originally released in Japan in 1990. The system comes pre-installed with 21 classic 16-bit era games, including The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Final Fantasy III (originally released as Final Fantasy VI in Japan) and the previously unreleased Star Fox 2.
