Best Buy Canada is releasing more NES Classics today [Update: sold out]

Following a sold-out first run, Best Buy Canada has announced it will be releasing more NES Classic Consoles today, November 23rd.

A representative of the retailer wrote in the forums section of the Best Buy website that the retro console will be released in limited quantities on November 23rd, 2016, at 2:30pm ET (11:30am PT) on bestbuy.ca.

“Make sure your bestbuy.ca account information is up to date prior to placing the purchase to ensure a fast and successful transaction,” the representative cautioned, which seems like good advice considering how quickly the device sold out when it first became available in Canada on November 11th.

The NES classic has been difficult to hunt down this Holiday Shopping season, though Nintendo claims it will continually restock the console over the course of the next few weeks. The NES Classic is a miniature remake of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System released back in 1985, complete with a collection of 30 built-in titles like Super Mario bros., The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros., and Kirby’s Adventure.

Update 11/23/2016: Within approximately one minute of the release, the NES Classics sold out once again. Safe to say it’s the must-have gift of the season.
