Where to Buy the Super NES Classic Edition in Canada

Where to Buy the Super NES Classic Edition in Canada

By Simon Hung

The Super NES Classic Edition is officially available on Friday, September 29 and the little console has generated an incredible amount of buzz worldwide. It’s one of the most-anticipated products this fall and slated to be a very popular gift this holiday season -- if you can get your hands on one.

The SNES Classic is available September 29 and includes 21 classic games.

Pre-orders at Best Buy, EB Games and London Drugs were snapped up within minutes and we saw RFD collectively go through the five stages of grief when pre-orders spectacularly flopped at The Source. Plus, contrary to initial reports, the SNES Classic will be made available in Quebec, which means the console will be even more sought after once released.

To help with your search, we’ve listed stores that will most likely have them for sale, along with direct product links, if available. We’ll continually update this list as we approach the launch date with new developments, so check often to see an up-to-date list of stores.

      There's considerable demand, so probably. The big stores in large cities seem to be getting 50-100 of them, so they might not be impossible to find, but a lot of people will probably be buying them tomorrow since availability after launch and into the holidays is pretty much a mystery

    • It's cheaper and easier for me to just make my pi play these games. People reselling this console have ruined it.
