As Nintendo Preps SNES Relaunch, A Look Back At The System’s Top 10 Bestsellers

Nintendo Co., Ltd (ADR) (OTCMKTS: NTDOY) is looking to continue the positive momentum it generated from the NES Classic Edition this week when it releases the $80 Super NES Classic Edition console on Friday.

The device is expected to hold plenty of nostalgic appeal for older millennial gamers. The original Super Nintendo Entertainment System was released in Japan in 1990 and North America in 1991. Last year’s reboot of the NES Classic Edition console was a surprise hit for Nintendo. The stock has rode the momentum of its Switch console and its NES Classic to a 77.3 percent gain year-to-date.

What Shoppers Can Expect

The new Super NES Classic is identical to the original in appearance, but is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand. It comes equipped with 21 classic Nintendo games.
The Super NES Classic is expected to go on sale Friday, but the device is in such high demand that tracking one down could be a challenge.
