The console, which costs $80, was first released back in November 2016 and was a huge success, selling out immediately and highlighting the huge demand for retro consoles from nostalgic gamers.
The release comes with 30 games from the 8-bit era, so expect a bunch of classics such as Super Mario Bros 3., Metroid, Mega Man 2, and The Legend of Zelda. What’s more, some will have updated multiplayer function as part of Nintendo’s online subscription service for the Switch console.
