Nintendo NES Classic Edition is coming back again . . . on June 29

The SNES Classic Edition has sold over four million units and it just makes sense that Nintendo would want to allow that unit's older sibling, the NES Classic Edition, a chance at more sales.

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.

Late last night, the Japanese gaming juggernaut tweeted that the NES Classic Edition will be available at retailers in late June. The price of the NES Classic has also been corrected: It's still $60, while the SNES Classic is $80. Nintendo never really gave a full explanation for what went wrong with their first throwback console, which made fans feel like they were left on the curb.

This ought to follow the major announcements at the E3 this time and it would be curious to see if the new policies of Nintendo concerning console repairing is implemented in this device. Nintendo said players needn't worry about losing any hard-earned progress either because each game has multiple suspend points, so you can start where you left off easily.

Nintendo seemed unsure, at least for a while, whether they'd release more NES Classic Minis, despite the clear demand for the system. It comes with 30 pre-installed games plus one full-size NES Classic Controller, an HDMI cable, and AC adapter.

It's unknown if anything else about the NES Classic edition will change. 3, Donkey Kong, and more.

As part of the re-release, Nintendo is including 20 NES games with updated multiplayer features as part of the online subscription service for the Switch which is set to launch this September. Creating a family group lets up to eight people share a membership, even on different consoles.
