Searching for a Nintendo Switch was hard, however, trying to find a SNES Classic is going to be impossible. This tiny replica of the SNES system is one of the biggest consoles launching this year and after becoming available for pre-order the consoles quickly sold out within minutes and now are appearing on third-party sites for over 3 times the original $80 asking price.

However, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime wants to assure fans that hope does exist of getting one and to avoid paying more than the asking price.

Speaking to Financial Times Fils-Aime explained that Nintendo explained that the company has learned from the storages of the NES Classic and have “dramatically increased” production of the SNES Classic. Fils-Aime warned consumers that they shouldn’t resort to purchasing the system at a higher price. The systems have been appearing on sites like Amazon for over $200.

The NES Classic console, which launched last year, was nearly impossible to find. The system was canceled after the holiday season and those unlucky enough will have to spend over $500 for one over a third-party site, well above the system’s original $59.99 price. Looks like history is repeating itself.

Looks like history is repeating itself. If Nintendo decides to release an N64 Classic system hopefully there will be enough for everyone to get at least 1.

The SNES Classic launches this September 29th with 21 pre-loaded games, including the unreleased Star Fox 2 for the SNES.
