Last year, Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition, a revamped version of their introductory gaming console. A year ago saw the release of the popular Pokémon Go and Super Mario Run games for mobile devices, along with the hybrid Switch console, which made its debut in April to mostly stellar reviews and high demand. So if you're looking to pick one up this Christmas, be prepared to shop around.
The console has 21 pre-installed games, 20 of them are classic games like Super Mario World, Donkey Kong and Legend Of Zelda.
Despite advising that they'd have stock in stores today, Big W have also put the SNES Classic Mini online for purchase this morning.
GameStop (gme) has already offered pre-orders on the SNES Classic Edition, but all of its retail locations will also carry some for shoppers who didn't get a chance to order early. An included controller, shaped like the one that came with the 80s original, was included in the box and an optional second could be added for two-player games.
Nintendo is hoping for the same response to the SNES Classic Edition, which goes on sale Friday.
Here's more on why you need to get these and what you get with them.

There are more SNES Classic shipments coming, and Nintendo will continue to make the SNES Classic into next year.
But no one could find it. Nintendo didn't know it had gold in its hands.
So despite some early preorder chaos, things seem to be looking good for the SNES Classic Edition. The games hold up, and that couldn't be more true with the Super NES Classic Edition.
The SNES Classic is and will be in equally high demand, and in the months leading up to its release yesterday, its development has been followed by reports both promising and troubling.
SpongeFreak52 is right in that the SNES Classic is nearly identical in its hardware, while unlocking the limitation of 8-bit games in favour of 16-bit.
