The Super NES Classic Edition, the new mini console from Nintendo, has been announced back in June, and European players have already been able to pre-order it from several retailers. The same has yet to happen in North America, but it seems like it won't take long for pre-orders to begin.
Earlier today, the official Nintendo Facebook page confirmed that North American pre-orders will begin later this month. Additionally, there will be a significant amount of units available at launch day as well as throughout the calendar year.
