Walmart Officially Cancels All Super NES Classic Pre-Orders
Last week a pre-order page for the SNES Classic Edition appeared at the online store of Walmart in the United States; however, that page was published by mistake, which is why they have now canceled all pre-orders of Super NES Classic.
The company has confirmed the above by means of an e-mail sent to all users who removed their SNES Classic Edition on the online store. In the message, they indicate that the page appeared before its official date, and for this reason, they were forced to cancel the pre-order of all its consumers.
"Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date," said Deserie Dulaney, director of customer care at Walmart. "We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order.” Walmart did not charge those who purchased via credit card — the retailer, like many others, only does so when the item ships — and those who did pay via PayPal or with a gift card and had the amount withdrawn from their account are getting refunds."
It is important to note that Walmart did not charge the cards of consumers who selected credit card or debit card as their method of payment. On the other hand, those who paid via PayPal or a gift card will soon receive a refund.

So far, Nintendo has not yet released the pre-order of the SNES Classic Edition in America and for the moment we do not know when it will be available. What is a fact is that this product will hit stores on September 29th.
The SNES Classic Edition is a mini-console that will include 21 titles for Super Nintendo among which you'll be able to find classic titles like Super Mario World, Super Mario RPG, EarthBound and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. That said, the big star of the console is Star Fox 2, a title that was on the way to Super Nintendo but got canceled.
