Here's a bit of a good news for video game fanatics: The discontinued Nintendo mini-console is coming back.

So great is the demand for the retro console that Nintendo has now announced that it will put more Classic Edition consoles on shelves come its release on 29th September.

When the company announced earlier this year it was pumping the breaks on the console, gamers were not happy. "We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product", Nintendo said back in April.

As an indication of its planned supply, Nintendo said that the number of SNES Classic Edition consoles shipped on launch day in the USA will be higher than the total number of NES Classic Editions shipped.

With pre-orders already sold out, a similar shortage could very well be on the horizon, although the company reassured buyers that a much more substantial amount of consoles had been manufactured for the SNES.

But Nintendo promises it will be easier to get your hands on this one. A few months later, in April of previous year, Nintendo announced the end of production of the machine, much to the chagrin of the interested parties, then meant to pay the high price on the sites of sale online in order to offer the precious machine.

The NES Classic Edition ships with 30 games including Donkey Kong, Castlevania, Final Fantasy and Metroid.
