For those of you who, like me, couldn't manage to get a preorder for an SNES Classic, you're in luck! While preorders remain sold out everywhere, both GameStop and Toys R Us will have some Day 1 Supply for walk-ins. GameStop announced additional walk-in supplies on Twitter. Toys R Us will not take preorders at all, according to their response on Twitter.
If you want one, get in line early. That's what I'll be doing. If GameStop does a midnight launch, that means getting there before dinner time. If they are waiting until normal business hours, then get there at 3AM or so. I'm pretty sure Toys R Us almost never does midnight launches. Call ahead and make your plans accordingly. Either way, for those of you who will be in line, you're representing Star Fox fans out there. Make us proud!
If you aren't able to get a system Day 1, remember that Nintendo has promised to produce a lot of them, and will continue to produce them throughout the end of the year. There should be several additional shipments.
The SNES Classic launches on September 29, 2017.
