Prepare to wait in line again: the Super NES Classic is back at Best Buy

Limited quantities will be available in stores this weekend.
Author:

We know you're already super tired from Black Friday, but you might want to get up early to stand in another line this weekend.

Best Buy is getting more Super Nintendo Classic Edition (SNES) consoles in on Saturday, Nov. 25, the retailer announced Friday. A limited number of the gaming systems will be available in stores only.

When Best Buy opens its doors at 9 a.m., the SNES Classics will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

The stores will give out tickets like they do on Black Friday for people waiting in line. They'll only give out as many tickets as they have SNES Classics.

No, they won't be available online. You have to physically go to a Best Buy store to get one. It's also a limit of one per customer.

The mini systems (they look just like the Super Nintendo you remember from childhood, but smaller) include 21 pre-installed games, from Super Mario Kart to Street Fighter II. Check out the full list of games here.

Plus you'll get two wired controllers, an HDMI cable, USB charger, and the plug-in.

The SNES Classic launched in September as a follow up to the wildly successful NES Classic, which was discontinued after months of sellouts. The $79.99 retro console sold out quickly, so if you want one, get there early.
