SNES Classic Mini Available At JB Hifi

G’day, mates! I’m the SNES Classic Mini! Throw some retro games on the barbie!

SNES Classic Mini


The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Edition is now available to pre-order now from Australian and New Zealand retailer JB Hi-Fi. Fortunately for those of us not from the land of cork hats and Fosters, JB Hi-Fi offers international shipping. This means you can order it from the UK or America. Luckily, the SNES Classic Mini has a USB power cable so all you need is an iPhone or Android device AC adapter to be able to play it. No need to search for Aussie power cables!

UK pre-orders of the hot new minified take on the classic SNES have been stopped for weeks, with stock being completely emptied. There’s still no way to pre-order it in the US or UK. With 21 classic games pre-loaded, two controllers included and upscaled, HD visuals, the SNES Classic Mini seems to have been a tempting prospect for a lot of gamers! JB Hi-Fi have the SNES Classic Mini listed for AUS $139.98. That’s about £85 for British gamers. Don’t try and be cheeky and buy them up to sell to others though, as orders are limited to one per customer.

Speaking to fans’ concerns about the lack of US pre-orders available, Nintendo of America said SNES Classic Mini pre-orders would open in North America in late August. Nintendo said:

“We appreciate the incredible anticipation that exists for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, and can confirm that it will be made available for pre-order by various retailers late this month… A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year.”

Nintendo have said the teensy-weensy SNES Classic Mini  would not be affected by the stock shortages the NES Classic Edition was. Released in November last year, it was discontinued this year after widespread stock shortages.

In a statement to USgamer, Nintendo said:

“We aren’t providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition… Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is currently planned to ship from 29th September until the end of calendar year 2017. At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year.”

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
